Did you make any resolutions for 2013?
If so, you’re far from alone. The anticipation of a New Year and a fresh start encourages millions and millions of people to decide to make at least one big change in their life.
And, according to Twitter, our biggest goals for this year include finding (or giving) love, hitting the gym and quitting drinking.
This data comes courtesy of this Twitter map, courtesy of Chris Cantey, who tracked tweets New Year resolutions across Twitter. Chris’s findings can be seen in the infographic below (click to enlarge).
A word of caution: while an attempt at self-improvement is always admirable, nobody ever said it was going to be easy. A 2007 study revealed that 88% of those who set New Year resolutions fail. So, whatever you’re trying to change for 2013, we wish you the very best of luck. You’re going to need it.
