I'm a psychotherapist, and these are the 3 biggest resolution mistakes I see most people make
- It's easy to make a resolution, but tough to keep one successfully. However, a few tweaks can change that.
- Create a goal that's clear and measurable, not just a vague one.
- Don't overwhelm yourself with the scope of the resolution. Keep it obtainable.
- It's okay to start on a date that isn't January 1st - begin when you're ready to change.

Resolutions are easy to make - but tough to keep. In fact, a study by Scranton University found that only 19% of people are successful at keeping their resolutions for two years. Most people don't make it nearly that long. A whopping 30% give up on their goals by mid-January.
As a psychotherapist, I watch many people go through the highs and lows of the New Year's resolution process. Part of my job often involves helping them change the way they establish their resolutions. A few simple tweaks to the goals they set increase their chances of success.
Here are three mistakes to avoid when establishing your resolution this year:
1. Establishing non-measurable goals
2. Setting your sights too high
3. Starting your resolution on January 1st
