For many French people, returning from vacation represents a new start and an opportunity to review their priorities. What are the most considered good resolutions for this start of the 2023 school year? A survey gives the answer and may well inspire you.
After the New Year, the return to school in September is often an opportunity to review your priorities, to take stock of what you want to change. A new opportunity to make good resolutions! But what are the most common resolutions? A study revealed by Deskeo, a professional real estate platform, has recorded the major trends.
Two atmospheres for the return to work: which “team” are you?
Unsurprisingly, the survey conducted at the end of August on more than 1,000 employees reveals that the motivations for returning to work are mixed: 47%, i.e. almost half of French people would already be thinking of going on vacation, but 44% admit more motivated than ever to resume their professional projects. The rest, 9%, resumes without question.
Find time for yourself first
As for the resolutions, they are in line with current trends and would allow, if followed, to take care of oneself and the environment:
- 49.3% want to spend more time with them and make it a priority;
- 45.1% of respondents indicate that they want to make a greater commitment to the environment;
- 37.8% of respondents want to get back into sport;
- 23.2% of French people intend to bring more “homemade” dishes to the office and eat better;
- 20.2% want to start training;
- For 18.5% of respondents, it is about developing a new professional project such as creating their own company;
- 17.8% specify that they do not want to change anything at all.
- 9.5% say they want to quit smoking;
- And 8.9% of French people want to change jobs.
Keeping your resolutions: instructions for use
Thinking about taking time for yourself or getting back into sport is good, but putting your good resolutions into practice is even better. In order to put the odds on your side, a few rules apply:
- Be realistic: limit yourself to one or two actions to change or to undertake in your return to school that you can include in your schedule;
- Find a pleasant way to put them in place to find pleasure in them, and not stop after 2 weeks;
- Congratulate yourself on the progress made;
- However, be indulgent with yourself: the goal is to improve an aspect of your life, not to create new pressure.
- Talk about it around you so as not to let the idea die in the bud. And who knows, maybe you can make a change together!
