13 Popular New Year's Resolutions


Every year countless people make resolutions for the upcoming year. They want to improve themselves in one way or change a habit, or just be a better person. Here are some of the more popular ones:

1. Lose weight/Exersize more
2. Quit smoking
3. Stay in contact better with friends/family members
4. Find a better job
5. Save more money/Get out of debt
6. Stop drinking
7. Learn a new skill
8. Volunteer/help others
9. Get organized
10. Enjoy life more
11. Spend more time with the family
12. Get a better education
13. Reduce stress

Mine for this year is to write more. Butt in chair. Yes, I need to lose weight and get back in shape, too. But I don't like making resolutions like that anymore. So what's YOUR New Year's resolution? And did you stick to last years? Let me know!

Common resolutions to common problems/concerns, I suppose.

I tend not to make resolutions - i set goals. Usually relatively small, concrete ones. :)

Paige Tyler said...

I don't really do resolutions, however, I try to pick something I want to improve on and work on it!

I don't really make resolutions, I make goals and a theme for the year. So it's a little different for me. But I loved hearing the common ones. And I do agree with you! Butt in chair = words on the page. Simple formula. :)

Debbie Cairo said...

my resolution is no more resolutions. The only thing I resolve is to be happy.

Janice said...

Yup, Butt in Chair that's the way to write more, lol.
