CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--
Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN) (http://www.groupon.com)
today announced findings from its New Year's Resolution study conducted
by AbsolutData for Groupon. The survey found that self-improvement was
the top reason people make New Year's resolutions. Of those who make a
resolution each year, 60 percent of the general population respondents
said they either want to get out of a rut or improve their love life.
Five percent of respondents said they've made a New Year's resolution
that was too embarrassing to tell anyone.

"Whether it's to live healthier, experience something new or spend more
time with loved ones, the New Year is a great time for a fresh start,"
said Favin the Beauty Maven, Groupon's new face of its health, beauty
and wellness category. "This year, on top of making healthy changes to
my diet and expanding my exercise routines, my plan is to try new
things! Instead of thinking in terms of removing things in your life,
why not commit to taking that class you've always wanted to take or
discovering something new in your local area? I'll be sharing my journey
with you all year long so stay turned for all the health, beauty and
Of those who responded to the survey, a majority said they "sometimes"
make a New Year's resolution. The top reason for not making a resolution
is because it can't be maintained throughout the year.
"A common mistake that people make is to commit to something so big that
it's unrealistic and unattainable," said Favin. "When that happens,
you're typically left with failure and disappointment, which is the
opposite of why you made the commitment in the first place. It's always
more effective to set attainable goals and then build on them. Instead
of, 'lose 50 pounds this year,' commit to something less daunting like
'10 pounds by Valentine's Day,' and then once you've reached that goal,
Of the general population respondents, 23 percent cited "lack of funds"
as the reason they broke their New Year's resolution.
"Another common mistake or deterrent, is to think a resolution is
impossible to carry out because of the cost associated with it," said
Favin. "That's not always the case. There are many affordable ways to
delight in the New Year and improve your life. At Groupon, we have
thousands of great
offers all across the country and even have a special section of the
site dedicated to New Year's deals at a great price."
