The new year is here, which means many people will be making resolutions for the year to come. New Year’s resolutions can help people to kick old bad habits and pencil in time for good ones. January is often seen as a month of change, as we embark on new chapters of health, fitness and renewal after what can sometimes be an overindulgent Christmas season. It’s traditionally a busy period for gyms with new sign-ups, lots of folk are eating more fruit and veg as they try Veganuary and others are avoiding alcohol and undertaking Dry January to help get back to a healthier lifestyle.
For some, New Year’s Resolutions are important, but for others they aren’t the best way to improve daily habits. We questioned people in Manchester city centre on their 2023 resolutions and also what they are looking forward to this year.
