Stick to Your Healthy New Year's Resolutions With These 7 Essentials
Stay on track with these sanity-saving finds.
Now that the post-holiday haze has lifted and everyone is back on their 9 to 5 grind, it’s clear that New Year’s resolutions are top of mind, no matter how large or small your personal goals. Whether your 2019 involves a dry January, a brand-new gym membership, or a month-long hiatus from social media, each annual ball drop brings a renewed sense of purpose that’s felt on Instagram feeds worldwide. Unfortunately, what they say about best-laid plans is true, and despite your good intentions, it’s common for one (or all) of your New Year’s resolutions to go awry soon after you resolve for change. In fact, according to a U.S. News & World Health report, 80 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail by the second week of February. To help maintain your healthy resolutions, we rounded up 7 motivational items to help you stay on track well into 2020.
