New Year's Resolution (2)


Later, though, as we go back to work, and the long, cold winter grinds on, it's easy to lose motivation.  Also, some people make unrealistic promises which are difficult to keep.

For Americans, the following are some of the most popular resolutions: Start an exercise program - Americans are fat and out of shape, and they know this.  Getting more exercise is both healthy and good for emotional health.

Find more time for family - people who are busy often don't see one another as much as they'd like and so would like to spend more time with loved one.

Lose weight - besides getting more exercise, people in the US would like to cut their calories and become thinner.

Reduce personal debt - The average American carries a lot of financial debt, mostly credit cards and mortgages and it's obviously better to reduce this amount.

Quit smoking / drinking - Not many Americans smoke these days, but those that do know that it's an expensive, unhealthy habit.  Drinking too much alcohol also brings health or family problems, and people often need to decrease or stop it.

If you make a New Year's Resolution this year, good luck and try to stick with it !                        (G.K)
