A new year often brings the idea of ​​"a new me".

By now, most of us have set our New Year's resolutions. We're either feeling great that we've achieved what we set out to or we're hitting our heads because we're struggling to take action on our goals.

Intrigued by this, The Research Team at Tajmeeli was keen to see what the rest of the world thought would be good New Year's Resolutions for 2022. 

Using Google Search Data, we looked at the rising search queries in wellness and health categories and topics that people would likely use to set New Year's goals. We examined the data of a sample of seven predominantly English-speaking countries from December 2021 to mid-January 2022.

This is what we discovered.

4. About the Data


Tajmeeli identified 14 New Year's Resolutions for 2022 by analyzing Google search queries related to popular health and wellness topics that had a search increase from December 2021 to mid-January 2022.

In the image above you'll see To Lose Weight is the most popular goal with Eating Differently the second and Start Working Out the third favorite New Year's Resolution. Care for Skin and Begin Fasting were tied for 8th place as they had the same number of rising search queries, whereas Take Vitamins and Try Morning Routine were tied for 12th place.

The Top New New Year's Resolutions in Order of Most to Least Popular:

  1. Lose Weight
  2. Eat Differently
  3. Start Working Out
  4. Change Hair
  5. Sleep Better
  6. Follow a Meditation Practice
  7. Improve Mental Wellbeing
  8. Care for Skin and Begin Fasting
  9. Practice Yoga
  10. Gain Weight
  11. Quit Smoking
  12. Take Vitamins and Incorporate a Morning Routine

In the tables below you'll see each New Year's Resolution is listed in the blue horizontal bar at the top of every table. The diagrams also include the search terms of the seven countries related to the resolution represented by the table.

* Queries with 'Breakout' search interest have had a 'tremendous increase, probably because these queries are new and had few (if any) prior searches'. This suggests the search terms had a surge in interest over the past month and a half. A breakout search query, for example, could have not been searched for before the stipulated period and then have a high increase in interest for that specific time. Because of this, there'd be very little search data to compare it to and the query would thus have a breakout increase in searches according to Google.

Breakout search terms are in no particular order.


The Favorite Resolution

Looking at trends across our samples of predominantly English-speaking countries we found that losing weight is the favorite New Year's resolution for all countries. 

Each one of the seven countries we analyzed had search queries in the losing weight category. 

Top queries included:

“vanderbilt weight loss clinic” at +4 250% in the United States

“yoga for weight loss for beginners” at +4 200% in the United States.

The resolution to lose belly fat was of particular interest across several countries in this category and we discovered 10 different search terms demonstrating people's desire to flatten their stomachs.

These search terms were:

  • best exercise to reduce belly fat
  • belly fat reduction exercise
  • how to reduce belly fat
  • how to lose belly fat
  • how to lose belly fat fast
  • best exercise to lose belly fat
  • how to lose lower belly fat
  • how to get rid of belly fat
  • stomach surgery for weight loss
  • how to get rid of lower stomach fat

What's for dinner in 2022?

Eating differently or a change in diet was the second favorite resolution for 2022. The rising search queries in this category suggested that many people's desire to change their diet was to aid weight loss. This wasn't the only motivation however and many search queries showed an interest in a change in diet was also to alleviate other health concerns such as diabetes and allergies. Queries like “low fodmap diet”, “diabetes diet menu” and “cardiac diet” prove this.

A change to a keto diet was by far the popular choice for 2022. The number of rising search queries for terms containing “keto” was recorded at 15. Queries containing “fodmap” or “Mediterranean” tied for second with three search queries each.

Witness the fitness interest increase

The third most popular resolution was to improve physical fitness, with every country demonstrating an increase in search queries on exercise, fitness and working out. 

Beauty is still important this year

When it comes to beauty resolutions, new hair was the firm favorite. The number of rising search queries in this category were recorded at 42. People's favorite way of changing their hair in 2022 was to change its color - search queries around color were more popular than hair cuts or styles. Searches on hair color trends in 2022 had a breakout search interest in both the Philippines and Canada with a 1 100% increase in the search term, “2022 hair color trends” for the Philippines.

The data collected from Google Trends represents searches from the seven above-mentioned countries and relates to the period from 1st December 2021 – 17th January 2022.  

By searching for identical terms related to health and wellness for each country we identified patterns of data and used them to collate the New Year's Resolutions above.

For example, we'd search for the term “work out” and collate the rising queries (search queries that had an increase in searches ) during the specified period. This process would then be repeated for each country using the same search term, which in this example is “work out”. Depending on the type and number of rising search queries around terms like “work out” we were able to surmise the top New Year's Resolutions for 2022.

The top New Year's Resolutions were identified by the number of rising search queries related to that resolution in each country. 

Google defines 'breakout' search terms as those that have had 'a tremendous increase, probably because these queries are new and had few (if any) prior searches.'
