Tis the season for reinventing ourselves, making list of ins and outs and creating the R word- New Year Resolutions – but ever wondered how New Year Resolutions all started? Listen to this episode to uncover how annual promises became an essential part of our lives- think ancient times and middle east.

  • Figure out how the threat of the Gods shapes our yearly goal-setting
  • The unexpected twists and turns resolutions have taken over the centuries
  • And for a little razzle dazzle, when the New Year should actually go down

So, before write down anymore resolutions and create anymore vision boards, press play and let’s time-travel together to the bottom of this whole resolution thang.
