Many people have been looking forward to the New Year and getting a fresh start despite the pandemic still surging around the globe. According to a recent poll conducted by Offers.com, only 3% of U.S. adults said they didn’t have plans to make any resolutions in 2021. Although 2021 will be different, the usual resolutions - exercising more/losing weight, saving money/getting out of debt, traveling more, making new friends and getting a new job - remain the most popular New Year’s resolutions. Here are a few podcasts to help you stay motivated to keep up your 2021 resolutions.
