The Nine Most Common New Year's Resolutions

Every year, people make promises to themselves about the new year. Whether those promises are big or just tiny ones, they still can be considered a "New Year's Resolution."

1. Eat healthier

This one is very popular. People tend to treat the new year as a new leaf, so eating healthier falls into this category.

2. Get fit / Start exercising more

Right after the holidays and relaxing with family, people tend to feel like they've lost themselves. So getting fit and exercising more falls into this category

3. Be more organized

Life can be messy. Sometimes life's so messy that it requires a New Year's Resolution about it!

4. Lose weight

Some feel like they have packed on the pounds since the holidays. Because of this, it usually evolves into the common New Year's resolution "lose weight."

5. Drink more water

With all of the different options of soda to drink and all of the ways you can drink iced tea, water may feel like a boring choice. However, water is the healthiest option and that is probably why it ends up on everyone's list

6. Be a better person

Because everyone loves a humble and kind person. So why not choose the new year to put your snarky comments aside and to be a more humble person!?

7. Live life to the fullest

Feel like you're not living your life to the fullest potential? Be like everyone else and make this your New Year's resolution!

8. Spend less and save more

Everyone hates spending money, especially after Black Friday and Christmas. Your wallet is probably feeling pretty empty right now, which is why every year people promise themselves that they're going to start spending less and saving more!

9. Actually complete my New Year's Resolution

The epitome of "I swear I'm going to do it this year!" Basically, a New Year's resolution about a New Year's resolution... how classic!
