With 2022 soon to be over and 2023 just around the corner, now is the time for people to reflect on the year and think about the future and what they want to ditch, take up and achieve going forwards.

A survey commissioned by GoCompare surveyed 2,000 adults and found that two out of five plan to make resolutions for the following year.

Some of the most popular ones include being healthier and happier, with others seeking to change diets, getting fitter and taking up new sport activities.

Spending less money on shopping, eating fewer takeaways, and making savings on things like phone and broadband costs also featured high in the list.

In case you’re struggling to think of what you want to resolve for 2022 and bring into the New Year, we’ve gathered some of the most popular New Year’s resolutions as well as a selection from our audience.


• Lose weight

• Eat healthier or change diet

• Get fitter and take more exercise

• Spend more time with family and friends

• Be more aware and take care of mental health

• Sort out finances and cut back spending

• Travel more

• Take up a new hobby, sport or other interest

• Be more environmentally friendly

• Look for a new job


Asking The Staff Canteen audience what their New Year’s resolutions were, we picked our favourites to take us into 2023.

Chef Russ Crisotomo, Head Chef of Paris Bar and Restaurant Nottingham, said that his resolution was to “change his leadership”.


Graham Mitchell, Chef Owner of Tarragon by Graham Mitchell, said that his resolution was to “Actually take a day off”.


Another user said her resolution was to “eat more and support fabulous hospitality venues!”


Have a Happy New Year from everyone at The Staff Canteen!
