With each new year, countless New Year’s Resolutions are made. According to a recent YouGov survey, some of the most popular resolutions made by adults in New York include eating healthier, exercising more, saving money, and focusing on self care. Moreover, with additional push from initiatives such as Dry January and Veganuary, January has become a month synonymous with health.
