With 2016 right around the bend, it’s once again time for us all to decide how we plan on bettering ourselves in the New Year whether it's trying new fitness classes or eating healthier. Granted, most New Year’s resolutions fall by the wayside by President’s Day, but it’s worth giving it a shot. That said, figuring out what your New Year’s resolution should be can be trickier than you think. So to give you a kick-start, we hit the streets and found 17 New Yorkers willing to share their own self-improvement plans for 2016.
