Keeping Your New Years Resolutions
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- It's just the start of the year, but some things have already come to an end. For many people, New Year's resolutions last only the first week of the new year.
According to Scranton University, only 8 percent of resolution-makers actually stick to them. If you're still hoping to reach your goals in 2014, experts say it helps to map out a plan, and have somebody else hold you accountable.
"A lot of times, social support is so important, and a lot of people don't have that. So if you find a partner, buddy up, and join together and make it fun," says resolution-maker Sarah Whitters.
Researchers found the top three resolutions this year are losing weight, getting organized, and saving money.
