WEB EXCLUSIVE If you’re already feeling unmotivated about keeping your New Year’s resolutions, we’ve got some good news for you. In a study released yesterday by WalletHub on 2021’s Best and Worst Cities for Keeping New Year’s Resolutions, Raleigh placed ninth best out of 182 other cities.

These U.S. cities were compared across 57 different metrics, including exercise opportunities, income growth and employment outlook. All of these factors influence the feasibility of sustaining financial, physical or relational New Year’s resolutions.

In addition to being ranked ninth best overall, Raleigh placed 43rd out of 182 cities for job opportunities and income growth. Raleigh was also ranked 10th for “bad-habit resolutions” and 19th for financial resolutions.

WalletHub is a personal finance website that conducted this research to demonstrate how location and limited resources can affect personal lives, and, ultimately, to rate these U.S. cities on how conducive they are to self-improvement. And, hopefully, it gives you a just a little bit more motivation to achieve all of the goals you’ve set for yourself this year.
