15 Popular New Year’s Resolutions …


We all make them - those popular New Year's resolutions and yearly promises to ourselves of things we plan to do in the new year.

Yet somehow, we forget all about them by February!

All around the world, people make resolutions, so here are a few of the most popular New Year's resolutions you're apt to hear -- and make!

1. Lose Weight

Losing weight is definitely one of the most popular New Year's resolutions.

It's the number one promise everyone plans to keep as the new year comes in.

Problems with being overweight or obese are growing in the United States, as well as many other countries around the world, and yet that number continues to grow.

In the U.S.

alone, over 66% of the population is either overweight or obese.

Remember to set a reasonable goal, so as not to discourage yourself before you've even begun.

2. Spend More Time with Family

In today's fast-paced lifestyle, it's hard to fit in time to spend more quality time with family and friends.

Between moms and dads working, kids going to school and "hanging" with friends, and grandparents taking their retirement seriously, there is a lack of time spent together as a family.

People are recognizing this, but is it important enough to work at keeping the promise to do better?

3. Quit Smoking

The average 25 year old American smokes about 2 packs of cigarettes a day.

That is roughly about $6 a day, $42 a week, $180 a month, and in a year, they have burnt up $2,190, at least!

In five years of not smoking, they would have saved $10,950!

Crazy, I know.

And yet, many people still waste their money and even squander their health.

Hopefully, those who realize this and resolve to quit this year will stick to it and save themselves some money!
