Fewer Smokers & Year-Round Healthy-Eating Change UK's Resolutions

Modern day New Year’s resolutions include cutting back on social media, travelling more, leaving work on time - and taking fewer selfies, a study conducted by Thomas Cook has found.

While age-old resolutions such as dieting and giving up cigarettes are still on the list of pledges for January, a dwindling number of smokers and year-round healthy-eating have seen a host of other resolutions become popular.

Higher wages & career progression drive New Year job searches

According to a survey of 1,000 people in the UK, nearly one in three (32 per cent) Britons have job seeking amongst their New Year’s to-do list, driven primarily by a desire for higher wages and career progression. Searches on Indeed - the world's largest jobsite - increased by 44 per cent between the end of 2015 and January 2016. 

You have a WHOLE YEAR to achieve your resolution

The biggest criticism of New Year's resolutions is that they last for a short time, and then people give up. That's down to a huge misunderstanding about New Year's resolutions. They're called "New YEAR resolutions" for a reason. There's no magic. No one reinvents themselves just because January 1st has come around.

“Do-It” – Make the World a Better Place The New Year


Most of us will admit that getting healthy and fit is probably our most recurring – and most difficult to achieve – New Year’s resolution. Whether we’ve put on a bit of weight over Christmas or have been unhappy with our waistline for a while, it’s hard to escape the reminders that we need to do something about it. The TV ad breaks are plagued with adverts for celebrity fitness DVDs, and the magazines are keen to share the latest faddy diets. Finding the motivation to go to the gym alone can actually be quite arduous, so perhaps using Be Inspired to find a new hobby or team sport is the answer.
