Many people break those resolutions by February.
Somewhere I heard that in order for something to become a habit you have to repeat it 21 times.
So theoretically if we do some thing everyday for 3 weeks, it will be come a habit and become much easier to continue.
I am not an expert but it seems to me that it is easier to keep a resolution if you can find some way to make it more enjoyable.
For example: If you want to increase your exercise find a way to make it fun.
Rather than just ride the exercise bike, try going for walks with your kids, and make it a game.
Use the time on the bike to listen to books on tape, or favorite music, you don't get a chance to listen to very often.
Watch some favorite VHS or DVD's movies or some movies you have wanted to watch but haven't gotten around to watching Video tape your favorite TV shows and watch those.
