Health and financial goals dominate New Year’s resolutions in 2023.
WHY IT MATTERS- Making resolutions signifies people’s desire to take a step toward positive change. More than one-third of Americans (37%) say they have set a goal or resolution that they want to fulfill in 2023.
THE QUESTION- The poll of 1,000 U.S. adult citizens found that about one in five Americans say they have resolved to do each of the following in the new year:
- 20 percent – Improve their physical health
- 20 percent – Save more money
- 19 percent – Exercise more
- 18 percent – Eat healthier
- 17 percent -Be happy
- 17 percent – Lose weight
TOP PRIORITY- In 2023, women are more likely than men to say that they resolve to:
- Eat healthier – 23 percent vs. 13 percent
- Lose weight – 21 percent vs. 12 percent
- Travel – 14 percent vs. 7 percent
BOTTOM LINE- Many Americans, especially women, are choosing to prioritize their health and wellness in 2023. Eighty-seven percent of people who have set a goal say they are very or somewhat likely to stick to it throughout the new year. .
