Every time a new year rolls around, we all do the same thing—we pick a few resolutions that we’ve most likely had before and try to achieve them again. Unfortunately, whether it’s because we don’t have the right tools or just don’t feel motivated enough, our yearly resolutions tend to start off with good intentions, but often fall by the wayside after a few weeks or months. Let’s make this year different.
From saving money to getting fit, we’ve got some products that will help you achieve and maintain to your goals in the new year.
Other fitness trackers might be great for simply tracking your steps or the number of stairs you’ve climbed in a day, but being serious about fitness means more than just hitting 10,000 steps every 24 hours.
The Garmin vivoactive is a smartwatch designed with fitness in mind. The screen is sunlight readable, so you can easily track your stats when you’re outdoors, and you don’t need your phone to track them, either. It’s even got built-in apps and GPS for different sports like running, swimming, and golf. You can also pair it with your phone to get alerts about incoming calls, texts, and social media notifications.
If you’re like us, buying a new pair of pants for yoga or jogging always seems to really spur the motivation to actually start either of those activities. So why not treat yourself to a really nice pair?
The Wunder Under leggings from lululemon are popular for a reason, and that’s because they truly are some of the most comfortable workout tights you can find. This high-waisted pair is designed to hug your body where you need it and will really move with you as you work out so you can forget what you’re wearing and get into your groove.
Whether you choose to head to the gym after work or just like to carry extra gear with you, a great bag is crucial to make sure you have everything you need in one place. Just like new workout clothes, a new gym bag can also provide all the motivation you need to really commit to your fitness goals.
This Nike backpack comes with all the space you need to tow all your gear and features plenty of interior and exterior pockets for smaller items. The bottom of the bag is actually a zippered shoe compartment, so you can keep the grime separate from the rest of your stuff.
One of the biggest factors in implementing healthier eating habits? Making sure you actually have plenty of healthy food on hand to help you resist the temptation of junk.
Make a genuine commitment to healthy meals by ensuring you get everything you need in just one trip to the grocery store. This dual meal planner and grocery list pad will help you plan out your meals for the week and make sure you have all the ingredients on your shopping list to make them.
Another big part of planning out healthy meals? Making it so they’re ready for you to grab and go, almost like a homemade version of a microwaveable meal.
Save some money and pack your own lunch with these glass meal prep containers, perfect for storing different prepped meals and ingredients for use throughout the week. Once your meals and snacks are made, just portion them out into these containers. Having a healthy lunch on hand will be easier than ever.
We all know that water is a vital part of staying healthy and hydrated, but the plain stuff can get pretty boring. For this reason, many people end up reaching for cans of sparkling water or sugary drinks to get the sweet flavor they crave.
With this infused water bottle, you can make your own flavored waters with whatever ingredients you like. Add some chopped fruit, a sprig of mint or two, and sip throughout the day to stay hydrated with naturally sweetened water in flavors that you’ll have fun creating.
Life doesn’t always take a break, and sometimes there’s truly nothing you can do to keep stressful situations from happening. However, there’s plenty you can do to help your body release some of that stress so you can feel ready to take on whatever the next day brings.
After a long day at work or school, unwind with this heated neck and shoulder massager. It’ll knead all of the stress and tension out of your body, and can even be taken on the go for particularly stressful days.
We all know that stress can affect the quality of our sleep, making it difficult for our minds to turn off at the end of the day. When you just can’t seem to wind down, this pillow mist might be able to help you out.
This spray is infused with lavender to encourage peaceful sleep and vanilla to help calm and soothe your anxious mind. Just spritz the mist over your pillows before heading for bed each night, and you’ll be asleep before you know it.
We’d be willing to bet that you’ve used a version of this head massager before. If you think the original is good, though, wait until you use one that incorporates vibrations into the massage.
This five-in-on head massager can be used as-is, or you can turn on the vibrations with the push of a button. It also comes with several attachments, like a shiatsu point and face massager, so you can really get a full body massage with just one device.
If you find yourself wondering where all of your money went at the end of each month, a resolution to save more is something great to strive for. It’s also a task that can be made much easier with the Budget Book.
This book will become your best friend when it comes to how much you make and spend. You can keep track of all the money you make in a month, all of your recurring expenses, and all of the things you buy day to day. After a few months of tracking, you’ll know way more about your spending habits and find new ways to improve.
Throwing away food is something no one likes to do, but we often don’t think about how to stop it until it happens. Unfortunately, though, forgetting about food can be a hard habit to break, and it’s something most of us end up doing over and over before we finally decide to crack down.
With a FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System, you can save yourself money by making sure that the food you buy stays fresher for longer. From cheese and meat to vegetables and even baked goods, you can seal your food in an airtight bag, freeze it, and lengthen its life to make sure you throw less of it away.
Hear us out on this one. Yes, the Nest Learning Thermometer is an investment up front, but it’s one that is guaranteed to save you money on the long run because it’s actually been proven to cut down onwers’ energy bills.
This thermostat is designed to learn as you use it, so it’ll start to figure out when it needs to be on based on when you’re home and when you’re not. You can also program it to turn on or off at certain times, and even control the temperature from your phone whether you’re in the house or not.
Many of us make it a goal to use fewer plastic bags at the store, but it’s a convenience that’s not always easy to give up. You might head to the store without remembering to put them in your car, and then you have no other option but the quintessential paper or plastic once you’re there.
With BagPodz, you’ll have all of the reusable bags you need, and also a place to store them. Not only will this prevent them from rolling around in your car, but it also makes them easy to carry into the store without taking up space in your cart.
If you don’t have a refrigerator that dispenses filtered water, the temptation to grab disposable bottles of water can be strong. However, with a good water bottle and a nice pitcher, you can break that habit easily.
The Soma pitcher is not only beautifully designed, but is made with the environment in mind. The plastic is shatter-proof and free of BPA, and then filter is made from natural coconut shell carbon and plant-based casing. Even the handle is made from sustainably-sourced wood, so this is a purchase you can truly feel good about.
In addition to plastic grocery bags, disposable zipper bags are something that we throw away far too often. There’s not really any motivation to clean and reuse them, though, because they’re flimsy and get worn out too fast.
Cut down on plastic waste and on the money you spend buying food storage bags with these reusable, zippered silicone bags. They’re sturdy enough to be boiled, microwaved, and thrown in the dishwasher, so you can use them again and again to store and even cook your food.
