These Hilarious Tweets About Failed New Year’s Resolutions Will Definitely Brighten Your Day
If you've slipped up, you're in good company.
New Year’s resolutions are easy to make. But keeping them? Well, that’s a different story. According to a recent study, most of us don’t even last two whole weeks. And if you’re finding yourself wavering two days in, you’re not alone—at least if Twitter is anything to go by.
Vowed to rid yourself of tech addiction? Then you probably shouldn’t be reading this.
I woke up this morning and broke my New Year’s resolution to spend less time on my phone.

Did you promise to avoid drama? New Year’s Eve is not the best possible time for that.
One of my resolutions was ‘avoid drama’ and I’m pretty certain I broke this around 00:01 on 1/1/19 oops

Maybe you should just shoot for at least abiding the Ten Commandments.
Not even midnight and I’ve already broken 3 of my New Year Resolutions, and 2 of the 10 Commandments.
I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST FOR 2019 x x

At least this guy made it to lunchtime, which is better than a lot of other people.
I’ve already broken my new year resolution around healthy eating. Got to lunch time which is an improvement on last year so I’m taking the positives out of the effort.

Even ’80s pop icon Cindy Lauper didn’t make it.

Maybe we should all just try again next year.
I’ve broken my resolutions but am optimistic about 2020.

Or maybe—just maybe—we’re all setting ourselves up for failure by making the start time for our newly minted goals at midnight on the biggest party day of the year. Instead, perhaps we should all come together as a society and decide that today, January 2nd, will be the day we all heave our bodies back to work and start fruitfully setting realistic goals.
Remember, hard though they may be, you can achieve your New Year’s resolutions! The ultimate trick for actually keeping them is to not let a slip-up here or there get you down. Too often people bail in the face of one misstep, when they’d be much better off keeping their heads down and pressing ahead. And for more on this, read about this new study on the day that most people ditch their resolutions—and how to be one of the eight percent of people who actually achieve them.
