    January is a month for new beginnings, when people attempt to improve their lives, set goals for the New Year and try to get rid of undesired habits. Getting in shape, quitting smoking and taking up a new hobby are among the most common New Year's resolutions, according to a UK YouGov survey.

    Women are more likely to have made resolutions than men (24% vs 17%), whilst younger people are more likely to have made them than their elder peers, with 33% of 18-24 year olds and 23% of 25-49 year olds having made resolutions compared to just 15-16% of 50+ year olds, according to YouGov.

    Looking back at last year, it appears that about half of people (48%) who made a New Year's resolution in 2016 were successful at keeping to it.

    Here are Brits' top goals for 2017.
