New Year's Eve has always been a time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It's a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes.
Here are the ten most common New Year’s Resolutions in the United States. Do you have some similar promises?
1. Start Exercising
2. Quit Smoking
3. Learn Something New
4. Eat Healthier and Diet
5. Get out of Debt and Save Money
6. Spend More time with Family
8. Be Less Stressed
10. Drink Less
