New Years Resolutions Are Dying

A new Medifast poll finds: Only 44% of Americans plan to make a New Year’s resolution in 2022. That’s down from 50% last year. Around the Great Depression only a quarter of American's made resolution's. It peaked in the 1980's when about 65% of us were doing it.

Why bother if you're going to have such a bad attitude though?

  • Of those surveyed, only 10% of people say they stick with their resolutions.
  • 47% say they break their New Year’s resolutions within the first month.

So, what is keeping most people from sticking to their resolutions?

  • Loss of motivation (48%)
  • Not having a plan (30%)
  • Not having the right support (22%)
  • Setting too many resolutions (19%)
  • Overly ambitious goals (15%)

As for what resolutions people plan to make for 2022, the top three include:

  • Focusing on financial health (49%)
  • Improving health and wellness holistically (46%)
  • Focusing on self-care or body positivity (43%)
