-- this post authored by Niall McCarthy

Even though the vast majority of people struggle to follow and fulfill their New Year's resolutions, those annual vows do come with a certain amount of charm.

Most people dream of a healthy year laced with possiblities every January and 2017 looks like it'll be no different.

According to a recent survey by the Marist Poll, "being a better person" is going to be the top New Year's resolution among Americans this year with 16 percent. "Losing weight" and "exercising more" are tied for second with 10 percent each. A classic, "giving up smoking", appears further down the list with 6 percent.

This chart shows the results for the polling question:

"What is it that you will resolve to do or not in the New Year".
