Top 5 New Year’s Resolutions

Laney , Reporter

Since January marks the start of a new year, it is the month filled with resolutions. New year’s resolutions have been popular for years and years, supposedly beginning around the 19th century. Today, I decided to research the top, most popular new year’s resolutions of 2022, and I think what I discovered is pretty interesting.

Starting with the fifth most common resolution, we have, “live life more to the fullest.” For some people, this could mean going on more trips, spending more time with family, stepping out of your comfort zone more often, or simply just pursuing more of your hobbies.

Next on the list, the fourth most common new year’s resolution is to “quit a bad habit.” For some, this could mean putting an end to hitting the snooze button in morning, staying up too late at night, spending too much time on social media, or even just drinking too much soda. No matter what you choose to quit, quitting a bad habit is a great step towards overall self-improvement.

Speaking of bad habits, poor money management is something many people struggle with, leading us to number three: “improve money management skills.” Many people select this as their new year’s resolution to save more money, get out of debt, or overall just spend their money more wisely.

The second most popular new year’s resolution is to “get organized.” This could be as simple as cleaning out a junk drawer or as complex as organizing and maintaining the organization of school assignments throughout the year. Overall, being organized can lead to stress relief and make you feel better.

Speaking of feeling better, the number one most common new year’s resolution is to “get in shape.” For many, this is making healthier eating choices, going on daily walks, or joining a gym. Exercising more and eating better can lead to a much healthier and happier lifestyle, which is probably why it is the top new year’s resolution.

No matter what resolution you choose, coming up with a way, or a few ways, to change your lifestyle this year can make 2022 your best year yet!
