Being a better person is the top New Year resolution, according to a new poll from Marist College in New York, USA. Their findings showed that about 12 per cent of those surveyed want to become a better person in 2018. The same amount reported wanting to lose weight in the new year. Only 7 per cent of those surveyed want to improve their overall health, and 9 per cent would like to eat healthier, exercise more or get a better job. While New Yearresolutions are a big focus this time of year, the survey revealed that only about 44 per cent of Americans were planning on creating goals for 2018.
