Emphasize the editors’ favorite products to help you keep your New Year’s resolutions

To pass on any kind of New Year’s resolution, e.g. January 5, is a difficult task for anyone. But sometimes we are so lucky to find products that do things like exercise more, drink more water and become a more organized person much easier in the new year. In advance, our editors break down the elements they will use in 2022 to keep their own decisions.

Samsung 27-inch class screen M5 Series FHD Smart Monitor

I have decided that 2022 is my year of better posture, and to spend 8 hours a day over almost 2 years crouched over a laptop, it just is no longer. Finally, I invested in a monitor that allows me to sit in a more comfortable position (I may or may not have been convinced by this article by our own Mike Andronico – I’m using my laptop as a second monitor now). concerned about technical specifications; my only real requirement was that the screen should be white to match my home decor, and this Samsung, which happens to have some great features, including Airplay 2 integration, fit the bill. – Chelsea Stone, senior editor

Audible subscription

Every year my wish is to read more. But somehow I hardly find enough time to get through all the reading that is on my list. So I plan to help myself reach my goals with an Audible subscription. Not for every reading, but for the occasion where I can not find time to pick up a book, this is the perfect solution. – Emily McNutt, senior travel editor

Karst Hardcover Notebook

I picked up one of these journals last year, but quickly fell out of the habit. They are made of stone and have a CO2 footprint that is 60% smaller than traditional magazines, making them a good, environmentally friendly alternative. I loved the feeling of writing in this notebook and I look forward to writing diary every day in 2022. – Kai Burkhardt, Associate Editor

Hydro Flask 32-Ounce Wide Mouth Bottle (starting at $ 33.71; hydroflask.com) and Flex Sip Lid ($ 12.50; hydroflask.com)

Hydro Bottle 32-Ounce wide mouth bottle

I feel like I say this every year, but in 2022 I will really get better at drinking more water. My boyfriend is helping me achieve this goal since he gifted me this Hydro Bottle, in the clementine color I absolutely love, along with a lid that can be easily opened so it’s easy to sip. Already in the two weeks I’ve had it, I’ve noticed one huge difference in how much water I drink and how cold this bottle stays even hours after I refill it. – Rachel Lubitz, senior editor

'What the Fuck Is My Password' by Sweary McLeary

Although I’m sure the tech savvy editors on our team would does not recommend this as a password manager (see: this whole article) I’m the type of person who still writes a to – do list every single day and this book can actually help me keep my passwords secure. I like that it does not take itself too seriously, but I also love its usability. I plan to keep it in a safe / hidden place and approach the new year without having to stress over my passwords! – Hayley Saltzman, head of social

Thousand Fell Court Sneakers ($ 130; thousandfell.com)

Thousand Fell Court Sneakers

I love getting new shoes, but I’m always in conflict with the waste of throwing old pairs away. Therefore, in 2022 I will switch to Thousand Fell sneakers. They are made from recycled materials and super stylish. Plus, once your sneakers are worn, you can send them back to Thousand Fell for recycling, and the brand will give you a $ 20 credit for your next pair, meaning your shoes never end up in the dump. – Kai Burkhardt, Associate Editor

Prepac white Monterey 5-drawer chest

This year I am focusing on redecorating my bedroom. I’m not in love with my current room aesthetic and I want to maximize the space in my little NYC apartment. How? Well, according to one of my favorite interior designers, Carmeon Hamilton, the best way to maximize space is to take advantage of my vertical space. So my first step is to replace my wide dresser. I fell in love with this dresser from Amazon. The look and size is perfect for my apartment and the reviews ensured my decision to make this purchase. I can not wait for my dresser to arrive! – You become Thompson, social coordinator

Baleaf cycling shorts for women

I have set a goal of spending more time in nature this year – and have already booked a bike ride in March to make sure I stick to it! One thing I know I will need: Cycling shorts with a washcloth, also called a padded butt to prevent soreness after spending hours in the saddle. I’m already looking for this affordable pair from Amazon that also has pockets. – Chelsea Stone, senior editor

Hard As Head Nail Strengthening Cream

Terrible name. Fantastic product. My nails have always cracked and torn easily. And because I actually want nice nails for the first time in my life, I bought this lotion, which has already made a huge difference in the strength of my nails, and even my cuticles and color of my tips. Literally within about three days of cutting it on my nails and hands, I feel like my goal of long, strong nails is possible. – Rachel Lubitz, senior editor

HigherDose infrared sauna blanket V3

I have taken a very (very) long training break during the pandemic, and by 2022 I feel that my overall goal is to move my body more. But on days when I do not have time to go to the gym or go outside and walk, I love using my HigherDose infrared sauna blanket because it is an instant sweating session, without having to lift a limb or take a ton of my time. My goal in the new year is to use it three to four times a week, because I always feel better (inside and out) afterwards. – Stephanie Griffin, senior digital content strategist

Ugg Classic Ultra Mini ankle boot for women

I already own several pairs of fleece and fur lined Birkenstocks, but I have been sucked in by the resurgence of Ugg boots all over my TikTok. I plan to spend as much time being as comfortable as possible in the coming year, and these super cozy Ugg mini ankle boots will be the perfect indoor shoe to work from home. – Hayley Saltzman, head of social

Comrad ankle compression stockings

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to get out and run more (I immediately regret that I wrote this, but here we are)! So I figured that a new pair (or two) of these colorful compression stockings from Comrad could help motivate me to reach this goal in 2022. The thin mesh material is comfortable and they are also quick-drying, so they have nothing on super sweaty workout! – Stephanie Griffin, senior digital content strategist

Supergoop Play Every Day Lotion

I already use sunscreen on my face religiously, but now that I’m solid in my 30s, it’s probably time to get serious about applying SPF daily to my neck, décolleté and the back of my hands. I love the light texture of Supergoop!’S Play sunscreen – I’ve just filled up to make it as easy as possible to take my SPF dedication to the next level. – Hayley Saltzman, social manager

Put on Active Sculptflex Leggings ($ 65; setactive.co) and Sculptflex Box Cut Bra ($ 45; setactive.co)

Put on Active Sculptflex Leggings and Sculptflex Box Cut Bra

A good, sweet workout set really puts me in the mood to do pretty much anything besides sitting on the couch. I especially love the Sculptflex line from Set Active because not only are the sets SO flattering, but the thin ribbed material feels like another layer of skin. I love a breathable, matching bra and leggings set, and I’m excited to rock this one during my workout in 2022. – Stephanie Griffin, senior digital content strategist
