The 6 Most Popular New Year's Resolutions For 2016

These are worth keeping.

The "typical" New Year's resolution might be changing. A recent poll found that for the first time in 25 years, less than half of Americans want to lose weight as a New Year's resolution.

GoBankingRate released a new survey just in time for 2016. They asked respondents which of six preselected New Year's resolutions they would choose for 2016. Many respondents selected multiple options, and they also had the option of selecting "none of the above," which one in three did.

More than half of the respondents selected a financial goal, including many millennials who said that saving money was their top 2016 priority. The survey also found that women selected more New Year's resolutions than men.

Here are the top six New Year's resolutions for 2016, in order of popularity.


1. Enjoy life to the fullest.

2. Live a healthier lifestyle.

3. Lose weight.

4. Save more, spend less.

5. Spend more time with family and friends.

6. Pay down debt.
