Fun Fact Friday #2

FunFactFriday #2 New Years Resolutions

Less fun, more just fact this week,  but what we should take from this is comfort. Focusing on New Year Resolutions, and inspired by the fact that I spent most of yesterday afternoon watching YouTube and eating Maltesers instead of being productive.

  1. According YouGov, 63% of Britons made News Years resolutions at the beginning of 2015
  1. It also says the most popular resolution for Men folk is to get fitter, and for lady folk it is to lose weight.

  2. The majority of people that break their new years resolutions do so within the first month, and most of them will do so by the third week of January. (So this year we will all be bored of gyms, kale and no alcohol by the 22nd!)
  1. The first Wednesday after New Year is the busiest day for job hunting!  (Apparently, Monday and Tuesday we are settling back into work, Wednesday people are settled and decide they want a change, but by the end of Thursday are getting ready for the weekend soooo... that's that for some people.
  1. The first weekend after New year one of the biggest for online dating (specifically Jan 3rd according to the Guardian) because 51% of single people will make resolutions to met more people and try to find 'the one'.
    (I can confirm that the first few days of January I got the most messages and matches on my dating profile than ever before, and I still only replied to, maybe, two?)
How are your resolutions going?

Next week #FFF is all about Musicals!!
