Resolutions Are Out, Intentions Are In: The Goals Americans Are leaving Behind In 2021

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Resolutions are out, and intentions are in! A new survey finds that 7 in 10 people are throwing out materialistic resolutions for 2021, and focusing on practical goals and life skills instead. That’s according to research from OnePoll for Affirm. They surveyed two thousand Americans and found 60 percent of people want to have a more positive outlook and more motivation in 2021. More people want to save money in 2021 than get into physical shape. And 47 percent of people say they’ll spend the most money on travel in 2021, up from only 29 percent in 2020.

Our Twitter poll asks if your New Year’s resolution will be different this year than in years past? 27 percent of you said yes, 16 percent of you said no, it’ll be the same, and 57 percent of you said you don’t set resolutions.

Our question of the night: will you set a different new year’s resolution this year?
