America’s Top New Year’s Resolutions for 2023

This chart shows the most common New Year's resolutions among U.S. respondents who have made one or several (2022).


The plan to live a healthier life is once again top of mind for Americans making resolutions for 2023. Vowing to exercise more, eat healthier, and lose weight were the top 3 New Year’s resolutions in the U.S. this year, according to the Statista Global Consumer Survey.

In a year that was marked by high inflation, the resolution to save more money comes in ranked 4. Classics like spending more time with family and friends instead of on social media also ranked high in the survey. 19 percent of American adults also want to reduce stress on the job next year.

Less popular resolutions had to do with reducing the use of alcohol and cigarettes as well as doing more for the environment, for example, by becoming a vegetarian or vegan. Still, 10 percent of respondents were planning the latter for the new year.
