Isn’t it Time for Healthy New Beginnings? (Free article for all)

In exactly 2 days we will cheer to 2024🥂✨ Are you ready?

The start of a new year serves as an opportunity for many to set new goals and commit to better habits.

A new survey from Forbes Health/OnePoll of 1,000 U.S. adults (conducted on Oct. 23, 2023) highlights that the top new year’s resolution for 2024 is fitness, which contrasts with findings from 2022 showing that many people were prioritizing their mental health.

After improved fitness as a top resolution (48%) comes improved finances (38%), improved mental health (36%), weight loss (34%) and improved diet (32%). See full results.

80% of respondents feel confident in their ability to reach their new resolutions goals. However, only 20% of respondents say they keep themselves accountable when it comes to sticking to their goals. This is a massive drop compared to last year’s Forbes survey, for which 77% of respondents said they would keep themselves accountable.

So, for all of you who could use some TLC and a push to remain accountable with your 2024’s resolutions, consider TWIG your partner in execution.
