In fact, by the beginning of the 21st century, about 40% of people around the world already know how to form or list down their own resolutions.  Ever since people began to make resolutions as they welcome the beginning of every year, a number of resolutions have become people’s favorites. Among the most common resolutions that people make every New Year are to become more charitable by donating to the poor, to become more assertive, or to become more environment-friendly. Other popular resolutions also include improving physical well-being by eating healthier food, losing weight, exercising more often, eating better, drinking less alcohol, quitting smoking, avoiding nail biting and getting rid of old bad habits.
