New Year, New Roof – How to Make a Resolution That Sticks

When the new year arrives, it’s an age-old tradition to make resolutions – from starting something new or giving something up to achieving life goals. Unfortunately, most of them are forgotten before long. As a result, they have no real impact on your quality of life.

Want to make a resolution that sticks in 2022? Read on as we outline why a new roof is the perfect fit.

The most common resolutions

At the start of 2020, a YouGov survey asked Brits what their resolutions were for the year ahead. The list holds no surprises whatsoever, and we’re pretty sure you could guess all five of the most common resolutions:

  • Improving fitness – 47%
  • Losing weight – 44%
  • Improving diet – 41%
  • Saving more money – 31%
  • Starting a new hobby – 18%

Considering what we now know about how 2020 unfolded, making resolutions for the year was a pretty pointless exercise. As it turns out, however, the same is true for most people every year…

Gone by February

In the same YouGov survey, just 24% of people said they stuck to their 2019 resolutions, while 47% managed to keep some of their promises. Similar findings are reported by Forbes, who suggest around 80% of resolutions are abandoned by February.

Why don’t resolutions stick? There are a few different reasons. Some of them are unattainable, like getting back into the dress or suit you wore in your early 20s. Others are too vague, like saving more money or starting a new hobby. Which hobby? How will you save?

According to Forbes, some simply don’t have a clear benefit. It’s hard to save money if you’re not doing it with a goal in mind, for instance.

New year, new roof!

To make resolutions stick, you need to choose something specific, attainable and beneficial. A new roof ticks all three boxes.

If your roof is looking worse for wear and you find yourself getting it fixed every winter, a new roof is a great way to make your life easier for the new year – and many years to come.

Rather than being worried every time the heavens open, you’ll have peace of mind that your property is protected. In the long run, you could even save money, with no need to constantly fork out for repairs.

On top of everything else, it’s something you can stick to with a clear benefit for you, your property and your family.
