The 10 Most Common New Year's Resolutions

by Nathalie O'Neill

While you're busy slowly getting through your Christmas leftovers (turkey sandwich, anyone?), 2014 is fast approaching. And by that I mean it's TOMORROW. You might approach this by filling a Filofax with color-coded notes on how to revamp your life, or you could also choose to forgo New Year's resolutions entirely — science tells us it's good to manage our expectations, lest we come down too hard on ourselves. Either way, here are the 10 most common New Year's resolutions, in no particular order. If you do choose to follow one and fail, you can rest assured you're far from alone.

1. Get fit

Hey, you've got to start somewhere. Bonus points for cute workout gear.

2. Drink less

Because embarrassing yourself in front of a crowd is so 2013.

3. Get organized

Pretty much how I feel about my whole life. I may or may not be heading out right now to buy the aforementioned Filofax.

4. Quit smoking

It's not healthy, and it's not even really glamorous.

5. Read more

Even porn star James Deen enjoys slipping between the covers every once in a while (see what I did there?).

6. Save money

Enough to pay someone to make it rain on you.

7. Volunteer

(Helping your friends counts) (sort of).

8. Get a better job

"R-E-S-P-E-C-T, find out what it means to me." *Walks out of the building*

9. Learn something new

Sure, maracas counts.

10. Get happier

It's a new year!
