Many people say they want to lose weight, or quit smoking in the new year but we met some people who had different resolutions, most aimed at self-improvement in one way or another.
Ula Straw is visting Palm Springs from Montana. She doesn't plan on doing anything differently in 2013.
"I didn't make any. I hadn't given it any thought to be honest with you. Like I said, i'm so perfect I don't need to make new ones." Straw said.
"The New Year's resolution is to definitely be a better friend, a better mom. I'm not going to do the cliché, i'm going to lose 5 pounds, because i'll probably gain 5 pounds, but love you all." Mary Ogunlade said.
"My New Year's resolution is pretty simple. I'm going to make sure that this foot is completely better in 2 weeks and then I will have two perfectly good feet." Susan Hunt said.
According to research from the University of Scranton, about 40 percent of Americans make New Year's resolutions but only about 8 percent actually achieve those goals.
