About 30% of people regularly make New Year’s Resolutions each year, many of them health-related. Given the huge amount of research into health behaviour change, the literature is remarkably quiet on the subject of resolutions: a time when a large proportion of people pause to reflect on their health and resolve to improve it. Is this due to the ‘common-sense’, taken-for-granted understanding of New Year’s resolutions as being quickly and flippantly set, and as easily and flippantly discarded?
Katy will discuss some of the research on resolutions, and the wider area of goal-related behaviour, using exercise as the main example.
