One Major Reason Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

Written by Joe Cohen, BS | Last updated:

When looking at a list of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, I noticed a common theme…

Whether it’s saving more money, losing weight, or achieving a big career goal… all these resolutions are indirect attempts at a happier life.

But here’s why people fail at their resolutions, almost every year…

You’re focusing on the wrong thing.

Even though you may change your external situation: get that promotion, lose that weight, save that money… your internal state remains the same.

Many people realize that what they deemed as important, actually isn’t. What they thought would be the key to happiness is nothing more but disappointing sameness.

When you finally give up, you’re left feeling like a failure.

The truth is, you just started at the wrong place.

Happiness starts from the inside out.

Mood is complicated. It’s affected by hormones, neurotransmitters, inflammation and many other bodily functions.

That’s why my team worked to create Mood Daily.

It addresses the internal issues preventing a well-balanced mood. That way, you have more control over your happiness and the effects of external changes.


  • You end up with more happiness hormones when 5HTP, an important natural amino acid, helps to produce serotonin.
  • Your brain stops feeling like an internet browser with 78 tabs open with Vitamin B2, a key vitamin that helps support blood flow to the brain.
  • You feel more balanced with L-Theanine, which is found in green tea and helps support your dopamine levels.

In total, there are 17 active ingredients working together to make every day a happy day.

It’s gluten-free, vegan and non-GMO.

There’s no negative side effects. It doesn’t cause drowsiness. Honestly, the worst-case scenario is that your body is already working perfectly to support your mood and you don’t feel a difference. Although, nearly all of our customers have experienced some level of improved mood. Some experience life-changing effects, like Ashley.

This year, give yourself a head start on reaching your goals.
