As with every New Year, people make resolutions in hopes of bettering themselves in some form or fashion. For some of us, we know exactly what we will resolve to do (or not do). After all, it’s the same resolution we’ve had for the past years. For others, it takes time to come up with the perfect resolution…okay, may it’s called procrastination. At any rate, if you are one who makes a New Years resolution then you will be happy to know that you make up 45% of Americans who usually make resolutions at the coming of a New Year according statistics collected by Statistic Brain Research Institute.
Resolutions fall into four main categories: self-improvement, weight resolutions, money-related resolutions and the last category deals with relationships. Self-improvement which also includes improvement in education ranks the highest with 47% of Americans making resolutions that fall in this category. Those who make resolutions to make changes to weight fall into the 38% and relationship falls last with 31%.
