Ah, the dawn of a new year. With it, comes promises of change and improvement. These promises stem not solely from the year itself, but from all those entering into it as well. It is common practice for those celebrating the new year to engage in what are called new year’s resolutions. These resolutions are promises to change in one area or another as a result of the positivity of a new year. With that said, most resolutions fall into categories of health, fitness and general well-being. Many people resolve to go to the gym more. Many people resolve to eat healthier and/or lose weight. Many people resolve to save money, go on a vacation, seek religion, find fulfillment. There are a myriad of things people resolve to do in light of the new year. However, according to 247wallst.com, there is an order of popularity in terms of new year’s resolution. The list is as follows: #1: eat healthier and shed pounds, #2: engage in generalized life improvements, #3: make better money choices, #4: quit smoking, #5: engage in exciting adventures in the new year, #6: spend time engaging with family and pals, #7: exercise/go to the gym more frequently, #8: learn something new on one’s own, #9: engage in charity work or other positive deeds and #10: find love in a romantic relationship.
