Resolutions waning..?

Perhaps you’ve seen the acclaimed movie Darkest Hour and were reminded of the copious number of pithy Winston Churchill quotes.  One I like is:

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

These are helpful words at the end of January when many of us lose passion for our resolutions.  There is actually a Quitter’s Day.  Strava, a social network for athletes, researched when people lose motivation to keep moving towards their New Year’s goals and it seems enthusiasm wanes pretty quickly.  Quitter’s Day is January 12th.  Strava says friends can help you through this time.  Specifically, their research shows exercising with friends boosts your likelihood of sticking with sports and health goals compared with going it alone.  Whether flying solo or running with the pack, have the courage to continue!
