Psychologist teaches principles to keep New Years' resolutions

Posted: Updated:

People are making resolutions for the New Year, but most won't stick with them for long.

According to US News and World Report, 80% of New Years' resolutions fail by February.

Dr. Adam Lynn says it's important to not let past failures stop you from aiming for future success.

He also advises patients to hold themselves accountable and set goals that are sustainable.

"It doesn't have to be all or nothing," he says. "It can be a little bit at a time."

Lynn also says it's important not to get discouraged if you get off track.
