New Year’s Resolutions

It’s the start of a new year. Have you made any New Year’s resolutions for 2017?

A New Year resolution is a promise or a goal that we set ourselves for the new year. For example, this year I decided to eat more healthily and get more exercise (so far, I’m doing very badly!). New Year’s resolutions are very common in the West. Here is a list of the ten most popular resolutions for 2017 that people made in America*:

  1. Lose weight/healthier eating
  2. Life/self improvements
  3. Make better financial decisions
  4. Quit smoking
  5. Do more exciting things
  6. Spend more time with family/close friends
  7. Exercise more often
  8. Learn something new on my own
  9. Do more good deeds for others
  10. Find the love of my life

Have you ever made any of these New Year’s resolutions? Which one do you want to try in the future?
