Six out of ten youngsters state that their new year resolutions are greatly influenced by the pandemic and Health & finance emerge as the top resolution categories among the Millennials in 2021 reveals a survey by slice – payments and credit start-up.
The survey was conducted among 2000 respondents between the ages of 18 and 30 from January 01 – 15, 2021 on how they are resolving in 2021. It found that 3 in 4 respondents believe their 2021 resolutions are going to be vastly different from 2020. 62% of the respondents said that the pandemic has played a significant role in influencing their resolutions this year.
Apart from “eating healthy” or “joining a gym”, over 50% of the respondents also said that they are keen on investing in health insurance this year to safeguard themselves and their loved ones from uncertain situations. Interestingly, “self-care & mental health” was preferred over physical fitness as a priority for youngsters under health-related resolutions.
Under finance category, ‘Investing money’ emerged as an important resolution for this generation who are increasingly looking to secure their financial future.
Rajan Bajaj, Founder & CEO, slice, said, “Time and again we have observed that genz and millennials are a lot more responsible towards their lives and goals than what they are given credit for. The same reflects in the findings of this survey, with this generation prioritizing their health and financial security over ‘materialistic’ goals. The survey also shows that the pandemic is going to have a long-term impact on the mindset and priorities of young Indians, and it is imperative for businesses to understand that in order to serve them well. As a young team, we at slice understand this consumer very well and our 2021 resolution is to become the go-to financial destination for them.”
