#ygkChallenge: New Year’s Resolution

New Year's ResolutionWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Follow through with your New Year’s Resolution. Statistically speaking, only 75 percent of people keep their New Year’s resolution beyond the first week. Beyond that, allegiance continues dwindles to 64 percent after one month, and a mere 46 percent after 6 months. Whether you resolved to quit smoking or drinking, eat better, exercise more, or get out more and enjoy Kingston, we want you to make it beyond the first week, month and then some. Remember, if it was an easy habit to break you probably would have done so by now. So stay focused on reaching your goal, take one day at a time, and know that you’re not alone.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge. As you work towards completing this week’s task, please feel free to lend others a helping hand by providing tips on how you achieved success.
