Are You Hiding In A Cupboard Right Now? 8 Surprising New Year’s Resolution Revelations

You made them and you may be breaking them right about now. Yes, we’re talking about New Year’s resolutions and we can blame / thank the Romans for the tradition. At the beginning of each year they made promises to Janus, the god of beginnings and transitions whom January is named after, paving the way for the annual feat in willpower that’s still going strong today.

Indeed our New Year survey of 7,200 GLOSSYBOX members found that 42% of you religiously make resolution every year. But 72% of those resolutions are broken within the first few months, 19% within the first few weeks and it seems you’re a secretive bunch too…
