Antiresolution Encourages Concrete Steps Rather Than Vague Resolutions

Antiresolution Encourages Concrete Steps Rather Than Vague Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions often fail because of a lack of planning. Antiresolution is a fun webapp that will help you transform vague statements like “lose weight” into simple, concrete steps that can help you be healthier in the new year.

Antiresolution is from the team at MeYouHealth, the same folks behind previously mentioned webapp Daily Challenge, a service we love. When you visit Antiresolution (warning: auto-play audio) you’re presented with a reminder that the whole process of making resolutions for the New Year is broken — most people inadvertently set themselves up for failure, feel terrible when they don’t succeed, and slide backward into bad habits.

Click to “pledge not to make a resolution”, and you’re presented with a group of vague, nebulous resolutions that people commonly make. Pick the one that you’ve been thinking about, and the app gives you individual, actionable tasks that are easy to commit to and help you do the same thing instead.

While you’re technically still making a resolution of sorts, at least it’s something simple that you can actually do, instead of a directionless goal without a plan. Are you making resolutions for 2012? Let us know in the comments below.
