A survey by Statista Global Consumer Survey found that out of all U.S. participants who said they were making one or several New Year’s resolutions, 44% wanted to exercise more, while 42% planned to eat healthier in 2021.
Weight loss, cutting down on alcohol and quitting smoking were also common answers.
