The year 2016 may go in history as one the best years people to stick to their New Year's resolutions. These are the promises people make to themselves the beginning of the year to lose weight, save money, stop smoking, etc. Research shows that half of all adults make New Year’s resolutions but fewer than 10 per cent of them keep these promises. Many people make goals the beginning of January but have given by February. The main reason people do not stick their resolutions is because they are too unrealistic. People think it will be easy to change their behaviour, but many resolutions need a lot willpower and many habits are difficult to change.

Researchers the USA asked people about their resolutions 2016. Top the list was to live life the fullest. Nearly half (45.7%) those who took the survey said they planned to set this as one their goals for 2016. The second most popular resolution was to live a healthier lifestyle, with two five (41.1%) saying this would be one their aims. Losing weight was third the list (39.6% of people) and wanting to spend more time family and friends (33.2%) was fourth. The survey found that young people are making more resolutions than older people. Those the 18-34 age group made an average three resolutions for 2016, while older people decided just two.
