Brits are keen to fight the flab and save some cash, according to new research.
A poll of 2,000 adults found that two in three have pledged to make a change in their lives from little things like reading a book to finding a new job.
But 64 per cent of those surveyed by 888 Online Casino, believe there’s too much of a tendency to set overly serious goals – and believe greater emphasis should be on having fun.
Make a change for the better
Success for goals achieved however, is relatively low – with only three in 10 goals set achieved.
But the gambling company said this admission shouldn’t put people off – and instead they should try this fun generator for a new goal to aim for instead – randomised fun generator.
Almost half (46 per cent) are optimistic over their aims for the next 10 months or so.
And even more reassuringly, one in three has set a goal that has led to permanent positive change in their life.
The data found the most common aims among those polled at the moment are to exercise more, lose weight, and save more money or spend less of it.
