Happy New Year to everyone. Like all of us, I think about making some improvements in my personal life at this time of year. This year’s resolutions include eating more healthfully, exercising more, and getting more quality sleep. I thought it might be interesting to see what the statistics say regarding New Year’s resolutions.
ACNielsen, a global research group, surveyed consumers in 46 countries and found the following results for their top three New Year resolutions for 2007:
1) Striking a better balance between work and play
2) Exercising more
3) Avoiding disastrous relationships – detoxing in more intimate parts of life
Those were the global results. In addition, 33% of people in the U.S. mentioned going on a diet. Eating more natural and organic food was another popular resolution.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, then, that January is one of the top months for spa inquiries. We tracked a record number of emailed booking inquiries through Spafinder.com for yesterday alone. And when you look at the list of popular New Year’s resolutions, it is crystal-clear why people look for spas at this time of year!
