It’s a new year and time to make those New Year’s resolutions! Most of us will, with good intentions, make the resolutions, but break them within months and sometimes days. So, let’s put the real back into the realistic when making these resolutions. According to a survey conducted by GoBankingRates.com, here are the top New Year’s resolutions for 2016.
You might be a little surprised:
- Enjoy life to the fullest
- Live a healthier lifestyle
- Lose weight
- Spend more time with family and friends
- Save more, spend less
- Pay down debt
About one-third of the total number of respondents selected “none of the above,” indicating that they either don’t plan to make a resolution for 2016 or their goal wasn’t represented among the offered choices. These analyses on resolutions were conducted on only the remaining portion of responses that selected one or more of the resolutions above.
This list is rather refreshing. Seeing ‘Enjoy life to the fullest’ as number one reminds us to live in “the now” and be present to those around us.
