3 years ago

The New Year is a time when people make resolutions. We often want to start a new life after the clock strikes 12 — one where we get up earlier, go to the gym more, master new skills, and actually become better as a whole.

At Bright Side, we were curious to know what people wanted to change about themselves and how many of them were actually able to achieve their goals.
