2024 – New Year’s Resolutions – What’s Bedford Thinking

December 29, 2023

As we end another year, the news programs are filled with stories on how to make and keep our New Year’s Resolutions. 34 percent of U.S. adult citizens plan to make New Year’s resolutions or set a goal for 2024.  Younger people are the most likely to make resolutions with a steady decline as people get older. Adults under 30 (52 percent) are the most likely to have resolutions, followed by 30-to-44-year-olds (44 percent). Fewer 45-to-64-year-olds (27 percent) and people 65 and older (18 percent) will set New Year’s resolutions.

Of those resolutions, saving more money is the most common with 23 percent setting this as a goal.  Other popular goals include: being happy (22 percent), exercising more (21 percent), improving their physical health (21 percent), eating healthier (20 percent), improving mental health (19 percent), and losing weight (19 percent). Fewer adults are resolving to move (7 percent), pursue a new hobby (8 percent), or get a new job (9 percent).

Last year we asked the same question – 27 percent of Bedford respondents said yes to making resolutions, 65 percent said no. Will it change in 2023?
