3. Quit Smoking
This resolution was in your list last year? Try again and never fear to fail! Identify your triggers and patterns to overcome it. If you tend to smoke due to peer pressure or social circle (it’s hard to avoid when your family, friends or co-workers smoke as well), let them know that you can’t join them for smoking break session anymore. Try to go for healthier routines such as taking a break with non-smokers or go for a short gym session during your break.
