New Year’s resolutions: Why do we set ourselves up to fail?

The New Year is a time for people to reflect on the previous year and set new goals. However, experts say many people don’t stick to their New Year’s resolutions because they set themselves up to fail.

Shantala Boss, a Lake Mary-based mental health counselor, says studies show only 25% of people actually stay committed to their resolutions after the New Year.

Boss came on the News 6 at Nine show ahead of New Year’s Eve to talk about what people can do differently in 2020 to help keep their resolutions.
