Each year, millions of people set New Year’s resolutions, but, according to, statistics show that only 25% are kept in the first 30 days of the new year and only 8% are kept after that.

According to, some of the most popular New Year’s resolutions are to get fit, learn something new, read more and to increase quality time with family and friends.
