Women in the UK are more likely to stick to and achieve a New Year’s Resolution than men, according to a new poll(i) published today by the Stroke Association.
The charity’s latest survey revealed that 20% of women saw through their resolutions in 2017, while just 16% of men stuck to their goals.
By contrast, the poll found that over a quarter of men who made resolution to start running (26%) saw through this resolution, compared to just over a tenth of women (14%). Additionally, half of men (50%) who made a resolution to improve their diet and eat healthier are still keeping up their resolution to this day, in comparison to just over a third of women (38%).
The charity surveyed over 2,000 UK adults as part of its What’s Your Resolution? campaign, which calls on people across the UK make a New Year’s pledge to sign up to a 5k, 10k or 15k Resolution Run in the spring of 2018.
