Fresh Start: Tell Us About Your New Year's Resolutions

All month long, Sparkt is celebrating Fresh Starts by asking you to share a story of New Year's resolutions past and present.


New Year's Day. A clean slate. A fresh start.

For millennia, people have made promises at the start of the year to do better, break bad habits, and start good ones. Ancient Babylonians vowed to repay debts. Romans made promises to the god Janus. Today, polls show that nearly half of all Americans make a New Year's resolution.

Whether promising to eat healthier, get more exercise, or save more money (the top three resolutions according to a late 2017 survey conducted by YouGov ) or something more obscure, we think there's a great story behind every resolution and the valiant attempt to keep it.

All month long, Sparkt is celebrating #FreshStarts with a focus on your stories. We want to hear about your New Year's Resolutions past and present. Tell us about a fresh start you made (or observed someone else making), why the fresh start was important, and what happened. Each week, we'll award a $50 Amazon gift card to the most engaging story.

There's a great story behind every resolution and the valiant attempt to keep it.
