New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year Happy New Year

SUSSEX COUNTY, De-

A new year comes with new change. Millions of people each year make a resolution and try to stick with it.

According to a study from Go Skills, the top resolutions are what you might expect; health and work related.

Some people on Delmarva are making it their mission to help themselves and the community.

"I just want to be a kinder and gentler person. Why? Because then maybe others will do the same, and things will be a lot better this coming year," said Bryan Blow from Virginia Beach.

While others believe it's always the right time to improve yourself.

"I don't have one. I try to strive to improve all the time, so I don't really make one specifically for the new year," said Jen Roth from Pittsburgh.

Working out

The top resolution is to workout more/lose weight. But gym owner Amanda Peters says that might not be the best goal.

"I would like them to kind of change their perspective and think about themselves becoming a little more healthy. If you're under weight, maybe you'll gain weight. If you're over weight, maybe you'll lose weight. But if you make it a goal to be more healthy, long term, it won't be next years resolution," said Peters.

If you're new to exercising, gyms can be intimidating. But the co-owner of Rise Fitness & Adventure says, it isn't that bad.

"We do see some new faces starting in January but not as many as you may think," said Peters.

Nicola Pizza

Healthy resolutions could impact local eateries.

"January and February are a little slower. January especially because I do think people that have indulged around the holidays cut back a little bit. Pizza and 'Nicobolis' unfortunately aren't on that indulging menu," said owner of Nicola Pizza, Nick Caggiano.
