These Are the Top New Year's Resolutions People Make, According to a Study

We're all the same, really.

Year after year, it seems we make the same New Year's resolutions. And by we, we mean almost every person in the world, if research according to is to be believed, that is. The report which surveyed over 2,000 people found the top New Year's resolutions that people make time and time again. The results are pretty unsurprising, too.

Here are the top New Year's resolutions people make:

  1. Diet or eat healthier (71 percent)
  2. Exercise more (65 percent)
  3. Lose weight (54 percent)
  4. Save more and spend less (32 percent)
  5. Learn a new skill or hobby (26 percent)
  6. Quit smoking (21 percent)
  7. Read more (17 percent)
  8. Find another job (16 percent)
  9. Drink less alcohol (15 percent)
  10. Spend more time with family and friends (13 percent)

The findings also report that 60 percent make New Year's resolutions, but only eight percent follow through on them. What's more, people say they fail at accomplishing their resolutions by the end of January.

Maybe this year, finally?
