The tradition of New Year’s resolutions came to Russian-speaking countries relatively recently and has already become quite popular. People need to have some kind of “push” to start a new life or change their lifestyle. Some come up with New Year’s resolutions with serious intentions, some do it for fun, and some simply want to show off. It doesn’t matter what your goals are; it helps to feel more confident anyway. And one more crucial thing is that your goals must be realistic.
