Do you make the same solemn promises to yourself every year, that you’ll lose some weight, give up smoking, buy only organic coffee, sort out your overdraft and join a gym?

They all sound good when you are slightly hung over on January 1 and you don’t want to eat anything anyway. But by the end of the month, are you drinking a Starbucks full fat caramel latte, driving past the gym on your way to pick up a pizza?

You wouldn’t be alone. A survey last year showed that one in seven resolutions bite the dust after just a few hours while a heroic 14% of people keep going for a whole day. By the end of January, most resolutions are as much old news as what you got up to at the Christmas party.

So, armed with that knowledge, why not do it all differently in 2008? Relentlessly Positive, the website dedicated to all things positive, is launching the New years revolution on 1 January, promising expert advice on ways to feel absolutely great all year long.

No diet plans or self punishment in sight, New Years Revolution will inspire you into feeling good about yourself – even if you ate too many mince pies at Christmas.

You can still make a resolution to give up smoking – but you’ll have Suzy Greaves’ wise words on planning your goals – and feeling positive about yourself while you’re living them.

You can still hanker after getting back into a size ten...but you’ll have some back up from fashion designer Anna Scholz on looking good and feeling great no matter what your size – and encouragement from Anne Thompson on getting off the diet treadmill.

Other insights into improving your self esteem, positive thinking, using the Law of Attraction, Pilates and relaxation are all coming up as from January 1.

Relentlessly Positive editor Sarah Clark says:

“Every year we set the same resolutions. Lose weight, get fit, give up smoking, and get a new job. These are all great ideas – but where’s the motivation to achieve these goals if you’re setting them almost as a punishment to yourself? No wonder people can’t stick to them.

“I asked people to contribute their words of wisdom to the New Years Revolution because I wanted to make a difference. Instead of beating themselves up, subscribers will get a daily dose of motivation, advice on being the positive person they always wanted to be – and most of all – being happy, even if they aren’t perfect!”

The New Years Revolution is totally free, and you can sign up for the free daily motivation e-mails, every day in January, at:
