I can quite see why new year resolutions exist; a clean slate and the fact that the Christmas period sometimes allows a little extra time for reflection seem to be the main ones. Then with diabetes there can be an extra reason if Christmas means that blood sugars and control has wavered.
I’ve noticed two ways in which a resolution can be made:
- The first where you feel some kind of societal pressure.
- The second where the resolution comes from within.
In most cases, the second seems to be by far the most effective.
