For many, 2020 has been a year, which makes getting a fresh start in 2021 feel very appealing. The turn of the calendar brings both the opportunity to reflect on the last 12 months and the chance to begin planning for the next dozen. For 2021, many Americans are making the resolution to adopt healthy habits – concerning their bodies, minds and finances. As the Holiday Season Report from our Statista Global Consumer Survey shows, out of all US participants who said they were making one or several new year’s resolutions, 44 percent wanted to exercise more, while 42% planned to eat healthier in 2021. More popular resolutions for the upcoming year also circled around improving one’s health, with weight loss and quit smoking being among the favorite answers.
After almost a year of social distancing, often also from close family members and loved ones, 34 percent said that they wanted to spend more time with family and friends.
