The New Years resolution most Americans gave up on – PPT News


It may be tradition for Americans to make New Year’s resolutions, but so is giving up on them.

“I don’t make any New Year’s resolutions,” Ash told Fox News. “At my age, I’ve made so many and I’ve failed at so many of them. 

“I think if you just live your life as best you can in a healthy, kind, happy way, you don’t need to worry about the rest,” she continued.

The top resolutions for 2024 are to improve fitness, finance and mental health, a Forbes Health survey found. But Americans told Fox News they gave up on some of the cliches this year: quitting the gym, ditching the diet and de-prioritizing sleep.

“The gym, it took one day for me to quit,” Brenley, of Arizona, told Fox News. “I didn’t work out. I walked in and walked out.”

Matthew, from South Carolina, stuck with his resolution a little longer.

“I didn’t quite prioritize reading the Bible like I wanted to,” he said. “I gave up in about March. So, yeah, I failed.”
