When you stare at January 1 on your calendar, it’s hard not to feel inspired. The New Year represents carte blanche: a totally clean slate for the next 12 months. Many of us jump on the chance to tackle our biggest goals during this time. Often these resolutions aim to undo much of the damage done during the indulgent holidays. If the holidays are always a time of excess for you, then take a look at this list of popular New Year’s resolutions. You might want to add at least one to your own!
1. Eat & Drink Healthier
This one comes as no surprise. The food and beverages that we sample over the holidays are some of the most important details of the festivities. Unfortunately, dinner often consists of several helpings of turkey, followed by a couple slices of pie. Oh — and don’t forget the midnight sandwich made up of leftovers.
As a result, a lot of Americans wake up in the New Year sporting a spare tire around their middles. There’s little wonder why 21.4 percent of Americans list losing weight and eating healthier as their number one resolution.
