At the start of the New Year, marketers get busy. There is no shortage of advertisements promoting easy ways of losing weight, and fitness centres offering discounted and affordable membership fees. Every book store has a collection of literature filled with articles and resources offering tips on better health, work-life balance and financial management — all with the aim of helping people stay on track with their New Year’s resolutions over the next twelve months.
It has been reported that the most common New Year’s resolutions relate to:
- Healthy lifestyle choices – weight loss, more exercise and better eating habits
- Quitting a bad habit – smoking usually heads the list
- Better work-life balance – to spend more time with family and on recreation
