Let's be real, sticking to a New Year's resolution is not an easy task. But it is a good feeling to start a new year with new goals and just try to accomplish new things.

There is one city here in the state of New Jersey that is really bad with New Year's resolutions.

If you had to take a wild guess, which city in New Jersey is the worst in the country when it comes to New Year's resolutions?

The answer is Newark in New Jersey.

Wallet Hub recently released a list of 182 cities across the country entitled "2022's Best & Worst Cities for Keeping Your New Year's Resolutions." There were multiple New Year's resolution categories that gave the overall rankings. Those categories included Health Resolution, Financial Resolution, School & Work Resolution, Bad-Habit Resolution, and Relationship Resolution.

Newark has a terrible ranking all across the board.

  • Ranked 116 in Health Resolutions - The gym gets boring after 2 weeks can you blame the Newark residents?
  • Ranked 180 in Financial Resolutions - Saving is not easy with bills and all that but this is one we would all love to stick to.
  • Ranked 182 in School & Work Resolutions - Studying is tough.
  • Ranked 159 in Bad-Habit Resolutions - If eating or drinking is the "bad habit" we could've told you that the resolution was not going to last.
  • Ranked 171 in Relationship Resolution - This one should not be hard. How can someone mess this one up?

People in Newark, New Jersey could never stick to a fitness resolution. According to Wallet Hub, Newark is tied in the 179th spot with the "Highest Percentage of Adults Not Exercising." That is not good at all.

The last fun fact shared on Wallet Hub was that "more than 7 in 10 people admit they have failed to uphold their New Year’s resolutions in the past." Put me on that list. I have failed at many New Year's resolutions.
