These Products Will Help You Stick to Your New Year's Resolutions
Despite what all of those social media posts say, a new year doesn't have to mean a new you (after all, what's wrong with the old you?). But if you like to commit to new year's resolutions, then we've got some products that will better help you stick to them, as recommended by our expert SwearBy editors.
“Cooking nutritious homemade meals is way easier when you have the tools to do so, and this all-in-one pan is so efficient and stylish that I actually get excited to use it. Not only does it come in a range of sophisticated colors, but thanks to its genius design it acts as eight pieces of cookware in one compact pan. Its ceramic interior is nonstick for easy cleaning, and it comes with a steamer basket, lid, and wooden spatula that you can rest right on the handle of the pan. It even has pouring spouts to eliminate spills and splatters. If this doesn’t motivate you to try out your skills in the kitchen, I don’t know what will.” –Christie Calucchia
Neon Pink HydroJug
“I used to drink a gallon of water a day without any issue, but for some reason since working from home became my norm, it’s been more difficult to be mindful of. So, when my dad told me about these HydroJug water bottles which fit a half gallon of water in them and come with a cute carrying strap (mine is leopard), I figured it might be the key to helping me get serious about my water intake again. While we don’t know what 2021 has in store for us, at least we can be hydrated… that’s something.”- Jayla Andrulonis
The Dish Duo
“Dirty dishes have met their match—and without the plastic waste. Whether you want to handwash one by one or do a full load, get the Dish Duo. Includes 16 oz of non-toxic powder dish soap, 40 dishwasher tablets in an eco-friendly, reusable container. Effectively cuts grease and 24 hour baked on foods. Good for dishware, silver, porcelain, glassware. Natural ingredients, non-toxic, biodegradable, made without parabens, phthalates, petroleum / PEG, VOCs.” –Katie Macdonald
One Tin Bakes: Sweet and simple traybakes, pies, bars and buns
“Baking is one of my all-time favorite pastimes, and I try to bake some sort of dessert on the weekends whenever I can. It’s a soothing activity that relieves much of my anxiety (call it a form of self-care that tastes utterly scrumptious) but not something that I can always make time for in my busy schedule. Since my New Year’s resolution is to be more mindful of taking time to relax and treat myself, I’m turning to a new cookbook by Edd Kimber from “The Great British Bake Off” to keep me going on my baking adventure. His book proposes the idea of using just one 9-by-13-inch baking tin for all his recipes, an idea that I can certainly get behind with my no-fuss attitude in the kitchen. It won’t be hard to stick to this resolution, I’m sure — after all, I’ll be getting a pretty sweet treat out of it.” –Nina Huang
Sal Suds Biodegradable Cleaner
“I know this might sound crazy, but I am in love with Sal Suds. I want to change my cleaning routine from harsh, heavily scented chemical cleaners that my husband loves to more natural plant-based cleaners. Sal’s checks all the boxes for me; it has a light, almost pine scent with a pleasant smell, and I can use it anywhere! If I could only have one cleaner, this would be it. I dilute it down to make the counter spray, use it to wash my floors, dilute it for foaming hand soap, dishes, you name it. Take a look at Sal Suds dilution cheat sheet to get you started.” –Karla Lint
“I have tried many meditation apps and this is the one I always come back to. I know the importance of taking time to sit in stillness and slow my mind but -I need the guidance, the accountability, the simplicity. And this has it all. Anxious? They have a 7 day program for that. Having trouble falling asleep? Listen to Matthew MacConaughey’s gorgeous voice lull you to dreamland with a sleep story. But my favorite part is the daily calm,10 minutes, short and sweet and different every single day. Yes its a paid app and there are free mediation apps out there, but investing money in this is investing it in yourself.” — Emma Kate Young
“The Mirror is my absolute best investment of the year. From kickboxing and barre to yoga and meditation, there’s everything you could want – and more. Best part is you can join a live class or find a class to do on your own time. It’s so motivating to have the instructor guiding you through each move, and it’s fun!” — Christina Vanvuren
