Why 1 February Is a Better Time to Start Enacting New Year’s Resolutions

January 30, 2014  |  Men's Coaching Blog

Be inspired by reading on if you live in the northern hemisphere. I say this, because in the southern one, while enjoying the height of summer, people have no reason to even dream of issues that this article discusses! This article also won’t interest you if you’re so motivated to achieve your new year’s resolutions that nothing will distract you on the way.  But if you’re of those people whose motivation has plenty of room for strengthening, read on too.

1 January is demotivating for new year’s resolutions

Albeit 1 January has become the most classic landmark of new year’s resolutions, I see tremendous irony but no surprise in why the promise of many people’s new beginnings passes out of their lives as quickly as the month of January itself.  The reasons for this are simple, logical, and commonsense:

A conflict of realities

Firstly, while January 1 celebrates new year’s resolutions, the reality in many people’s worlds is more of blues.  Lack of light, lack of money after the festivities, and the holiday blues are all hardly motivating. Albeit we’re socially conditioned to toast to new beginnings, many people feel unwilling to let go of the old comforts and take on the charge onwards and upwards.  Their resolutions to start something new are more symbolic of what should be than of what they feel that is. After all, with plenty of [often fattening] festive food and drink still in the fridge, who would want to start a new strict diet in the centre of the dark pole of the year? The light(ness) of the spring is far away and thinking about it now with the fridge still full of festive food and drink seems unthinkable….

But a month later is a different story.

As the daylight decreases and increases by roughly 15 minutes per week, the longer daylight becomes noticeable.  If a ninetofiver walks out of work at 5:30, he will see daylight.  Daylight brings natural energy into our bodies.  We feel more alive, the pull of the outdoors, want to be outside more. We open the windows, let in air, take deep breaths. And we listen to the birdsong and hope for the spring’s arrival. Isn’t this a much more motivating psychological environment to start something new in? Besides, February is a month of purification from the winter festivities and their consequences before the lighter parts of the year hit our lives. And the promise of the spring is closer now than it was on 1 January.

Many doesn’t mean all

At the beginning of this article I said that I was describing the situation of many people. Many doesn’t equal all.  I am of those people to whom weather, darkness, nor holiday blues don’t present blocks to taking on new year’s resolutions and getting what they want. But this is an advanced state of mental fitness. And the majority of the world’s population – especially living in the well economically developed countries – does not have it. So I wrote this article at those folks who need a little help to embark on their dreams.  The push of a well-meaning friend or family member’s good word often doesn’t have the right effect due to the interpersonal dynamics and motivational mix not being absolutely right. So a different angle – and one that most people would never make a connection to – can do the trick!  Not for nothing is February the month of purification!
