Zach Mowers with son Alexander: “My New Year’s resolution is to get out and travel once it’s safe to do that and to just continue to enjoy each other and live a healthy lifestyle. The one good thing about all this, at least for people with kids, is for them to spend more time with their kids. I certainly spent more time with my son than I would have if I had been going into work.”

A New Year's resolution is a tradition in which a person resolves to continue good practices, change an undesired behavior, accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their life at the start of the New Year.

While it is unclear when the tradition began, it is known that the Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named, to return borrowed objects and pay their debts. In the medieval era, knights took the "peacock vow" at the end of the Christmas season to reaffirm their commitment to chivalry, according to Wikipedia.

But according to a new study by OnePoll, the average American tried to form 19 new habits during quarantine — and gave up on all but four of them. Will you make or break your own New Year’s resolution?
