New Year Resolutions 2022

Chart of the Day: Did You Forget to Make Your 2022 New Years Resolutions?

Several weeks have now passed since the New Years’ celebrations. We have been so focused on Covid, Covid, and more Covid. And, oh yes the fairy tales of a January 6th insurrection. Does it seem that we forgot all about New Year’s resolutions for 2022? Perhaps we at the Right Wire Report  have also been guilty of this, that any New Year’s resolutions fell off the table.

It also seems that mainstream media was more focused on how to keep New Year’s resolutions, and not make any – see here and here. Many other mainstream media outlets couldn’t even muster that. So is the trend to just forget New Year’s resolutions – another victim of Covid? Perhaps still others are still recovering, see the video below.

In previous years, nearly one-third of Americans (32%) planned to make New Year’s resolutions for 2021 (mid-Covid), compared to only 28% for 2020 resolutions (pre-Covid). Furthermore, more than three-quarters of Americans (76%) in 2021 who intend to make resolutions are thinking about them more seriously year compared to previous years.

According to Statista’s Global Consumer Survey, 39% of US adults will have made New Year’s resolutions for 2022. For many, optimism has already given way to reality. Looking at the most common resolutions, health is a clear thread running through most of them. Almost half said they wanted to exercise more in 2022 while eating healthier and losing weight were also the choice of 4 in ten respondents. New Year’s resolution-making is actually on the rise. See the top 2022 New Year’s resolutions in the chart below and learn more here.

New Year Resolutions 2022This mirrors other New Year’s resolutions from Good Housekeeping and Rollingstone. But notice the tone of these resolutions. They appear more preventive and not as aspirational. Yes, Covid has even changed the way we make New Year’s resolutions.

  • We are making more resolutions,
  • We are getting more serious about keeping these resolutions, and
  • The resolutions focus more on prevention rather than aspirational.

Covid, the economy, the political divide, the Culture War, and storm clouds building on the geopolitical frontier have made anxiety of many people rise – see here. The changing views in our New Year’s resolutions are a reflection of this reality.

Better late than never – give us some of your 2022 New Year’s resolutions in the comment section below.

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
