If you’re over the age of oh, I don’t know, 10 years old, you’ve likely experienced the demise of a New Year’s resolution or two. The more serious and lofty the goal, the faster it seems to slip out of your overly optimistic grasp.
To help you stay on target in terms of health, fitness, and overall well-being, we’ve rounded up the top tools to make sticking to the most popular resolutions for the new year a little easier, and a whole lot cooler. Pair these cool gadgets with those goal-setting apps that hold you accountable and head into the new year with complete confidence that you’re going to kill it.
New Year’s Resolution: Get Up Earlier
If you’ve been known to snooze the iPhone alarm a few too many times, you might need to go back to the basics and invest in a good ole alarm clock. The trick is to keep it on the other side of your room. You know, in a place where you have to get up to turn it off.
We like the simplicity of this LED clock, which looks like a polished piece of wood that displays the time.
New Year’s Resolution: Use Your Gym Membership
If you’re looking to instill some gym time into your weekly routine, this water bottle makes it convenient. It’ll hold your keys, your membership card and some cash for a post-workout juice (if you so feel inclined). Most importantly, having water at the ready keeps you hydrated throughout your session.
New Year’s Resolution: Eat Right
If food prepping is on the January agenda to aid in weight loss or just proper portioning, a cute kitchen scale is what you need. You might as well dole out your proteins, fruits, and veggies in style, yes?
This beautiful blue option adds pizzazz to your kitchen, keeps you from over-doing it with the serving spoon, and hangs on the wall for ultimate space efficiency.
New Year’s Resolution: Get More Done
Check your schedule and pencil in all new excitement with a conveniently sized planner that feels better in your hand than any device. It may not be the most technologically advanced way to make plans, but it sure does look good.
New Year’s Resolution: Make More Money
What better way to keep your goals top-of-mind than a stylish reminder you can wear? This darling sterling silver charm slips onto your favorite charm bracelet or a dainty silver chain. Put it on everyday with a smile and feel grateful for your present and the amazing future that awaits.
