It this time of the year again when we typically set New Year Resolutions for ourselves.
If you are aged 18 years or older and have, or want to set, a New Year Resolution for 2019 then you are invited to take part in an online New Year Resolutions study. Past research shows that people's New Year Resolutions tend to quickly fall by the wayside. Our New Year Resolutions study aims to investigate what helps people to stick to their New Year Resolutions (or not).
The survey data collected for the study are confidential and the results reported will be anonymous. Participation is entirely voluntary.
Hopefully, you will find the survey personally interesting and informative. If you agree to take part in this online study you will be asked to list a New Year resolution you are committed to for 2019 and to complete a series of online questionnaires across four time points. You can complete the first online survey anytime up until the 24th February.
In the first survey, you will be asked questions about your New Year Resolution, personality and well-being. These questions simply require you to select a response that best describes you in relation to each statement. This initial survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Each of the remaining three sessions (two, four and eight weeks later) should take no more than 5-minutes to complete and will ask you how you are progressing on your New Year resolution (or not). The total time required for the 4 surveys is approximately 40 minutes.
We hope you accept this invitation and find the study personally interesting.
More information regarding this study, including a detailed information sheet, can be found on this webpage.
We wish you a Happy New Year. Good luck with your New Year Resolution
