Every year without fail, most of us whip out our epic list of new year resolutions. However, the most ironic thing is that not even half of them get done. After all, inculcating a new habit is hard and sticking to them is even harder. But there always are some resolutions that do not even last through the first week of new year, however hard (we believe) we strive for them to be! Here are five of those epic resolutions (Press F):
No more binge-watching!

Yes, most of us are guilty for this one. After binge-watching and finishing literal series on Netflix within a day or two (especially in 2020 when most of us were home-bound), this was a resolution that we made and probably broke on the first night itself!
No munchies post midnight!

LMAO. We always rant about eating healthy and timely, following a strict diet and diet regime. We know fully well how it is a slippery slope and there we go, blankly staring at the fridge shelves or at our own reflection in the microwave as we give in to those midnight cravings, more often than not eating twice the amount of junk food!

Sure, it sounds like an easy new year resolution to keep. After all, it’s just about staying hydrated, what can possibly go wrong? However, we barely ever stick to drinking an adequate amount of water. Beer is a liquid; those 300 ml pegs of whiskey that you just chugged were liquid as well, right?
Keeping the house clean!

Have you noticed those giant cobwebs on the ceiling, just above your head? Do you know where they come from? Have you heard about an insect called a spider? Cleaning is an absolute necessity but again, like most other resolutions, life gets in the way and as a result, before we realize, our house ends up as a messy haven for cobwebs, insects, and dust.
No more stressing over literally everything!

Ah, how badly we wish to stick to this one. However, it is in human nature to get upset by small things, which is never good for us. Anxiety and stress do more damage than we realize, and getting affected by even the most trivial things unfortunately comes naturally to us. Ugh, anxiety!
