When it comes to making New Year’s resolutions, most American’s simply… aren’t.
“I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions” was the most popular answer on a recent survey of 3,736 online shoppers, sponsored by Tada.com. However, those who are making resolutions tend to be extreme in their goals. In fact, 25 percent of people who want to lose weight want to lose more than 40 pounds, and six respondents say they are willing to pay an astounding $10,000 to make it happen!
The most popular New Year’s resolutions are all in the health and fitness category, followed by jobs and financial security, then service. To lose weight is the most frequently cited (32 percent), followed by to eat healthier food (26 percent), and finally to get fit (22 percent). The next most popular category relates to jobs and financial security. A combined 20 percent of men and women would like to save money, followed closely by 19 percent of those that would like to get out of debt.
And while most people simply aren’t making resolutions anymore, we found that some enterprising individuals are taking it upon themselves to complete some interesting resolutions this year: “buy my girlfriend a Dodge Ram 1500,” “learn to cook,” “stop swearing,” and “re-read the Bible,” among others.
