New Year's Resolution

Poll: Are you making a New Year’s resolution?

Is 2023 the year you make or break a habit?

A NEW YEAR is upon us with the arrival of 2023.

For some, the changing of the calendar is a fresh beginning and an opportunity to try something new or to give something up. 

But for others, the New Year can seem like an arbitrary time to make a resolution, and they can be difficult to keep – it’s thought up to 70% of people break their resolution come the end of January.

So, today we want to know: Are you making a New Year’s resolution?

Poll Results:

No (5939)
Yes, and I'll do my best to stick to it (2578)
I'm not sure yet (500)
