Happy New Years! Chances are you've already pondered resolutions, made plans for self improvement and have maybe even written a list of things you will definitely get to this year. 

Sadly, the stats show that we tend to lose steam by mid-February. With this in mind, why not invest in items that will help you stay on track the whole year! 

Below (in no particular order) are 7 products that I personally love, which will have you slaying 2020 in no time!

1. INK AND VOLT PLANNER 

Someone wise once said ‘A goal without a plan is just a wish.’ This planner does more than just keep dates, it will also inspire you to make 2020 the year you stop wishing and start doing! I've been using this planning for the past 2 years and I can't tell you how much I absolutely love it. It goes with me everywhere.

Promising Review:It’s helped me to plan intentionally, to set meaningful goals, to track progress, to reflect well, and it’s been such a good tool that its impact reaches beyond just me, as I’m now more organized and more prepared as I meet with the people that I manage/lead. Really, I’m quite thankful for this tool.

2. NUTRIBULLET

New year, new kitchen goals! Fire up this powerful NutriBullet and get on the road to healthy and happy! One of the best perks? The cup’s designed to take with you! I bought one recently during a Black Friday sale. I finally replaced a 6 year old small blender that had a cracked cup. Not only is this blender more powerful, it also looks good sitting on your kitchen counter. I use it almost daily for shakes in the morning, or sometimes after a long day for a shake at dinner time.

Promising Review:If you live active, busy, healthy lifestyle or you like to be adventurous in the kitchen, then this blender is perfect for you. You can whip up a smoothie, grab a lid, and bring it on the go wherever you go. What's great is that if you are new to taking on a healthy lifestyle and are unsure how to use your blender or what to put in it, the cookbook provides a ton of great recipes that have been tested and approved.

3. SINGLE SERVING KEURIG

Trying to bring order to your day by creating a morning routine? This Single Serving Keurig is the perfect way to set yourself up for success! Fill it up the night before and start experiencing the relaxing mornings you’ve dreamed about! This is another recent purchase during Black Friday. I finally got rid of my humungous Keurig that was just way too big for me. This new one is just so perfect.

Promising Review:Bought this Keurig for 3 main reasons: convenience, price, and size. I was previously using a French press to make my coffee in the mornings, but grew tired of how long it took to make my daily coffee and found myself always rushing through the morning. This Keurig has made my morning much less rushed, saving me a lot of time.

4. BEATS BY DR. DRE

Feel like you’re always distracted and can’t seem to get into the flow? Change that up this year with Beats By Dr. Dre! Slip these noise cancelling babies on and get into your work groove. Living in NYC there is noise pollution everywhere. I almost never commute to the office without my Beats. They serve multiple purposes...not only can you listen to your favorite music, podcast or book, but they also keep you ears warm in the winter, and they serve as an excellent deterrent that prevents people from talking to you or asking for directions.  😆

Promising Review:I was skeptical about these being Beats as I had a pair of the original Solos that sound like garbage. I work in a fairly quiet office and needed headphones with very little noise leak. The air pods I was using were leaking so bad, it became an annoying game my coworkers played called “what’s Jason listening to now?” No one is playing that game anymore! These things have great isolation and I’m rocking as loud as they can go. They work great for voip / phone calls with noise cancelling, extremely comfortable, and the W1 chip is awesome being an Apple guy (range is amazing). The wireless part and 40+ hours on a single charge is icing on the cake. I assumed I’d be returning these... I was wrong.

5. NEW BEDDING

How you start and end your day can really make a huge difference. Why not pamper yourself with new bed sheets that offer a five star hotel experience! Not only are these wrinkle-resistant, but they are super soft and luxurious at an affordable price for any budget.

Promising Review:Wrinkle-resistant? More like wrinkle-proof. I got tired of wrinkled sheets in my vacation rental property, so I figured I'd try a set of these. They cost 1/3 of what I paid for the "high quality" sheets I bought that wrinkle like hell. The first time I pulled them out of the dryer and put them on the bed, I was completely stunned. You would have thought I had ironed them they were so smooth and crisp looking. As for the actual feel of them, they are ridiculously soft and have a luxurious hotel feel to them. I like them so much, I bought two more sets. I can't imagine using anything else in my rental properties.

6. WEIGHTED BLANKET

This Christmas I received a new weighted blanket. It's my new obsession, I can't sleep without it! Sleeping with a weighted blanket is a total game changer. You'll sleep more soundly and awake feeling much more rested. The cooling technology prevents you from overheating. Give it a try, and you can thank me later. 🙌🏾

Promising Review: "I purchased this for my son who is a brain injury survivor. He has struggled with sleep issues for years and years, a fairly common issue after TBI. He is on 4 different medications to try to help him sleep (negligible success), and he has a CPAP for central sleep apnea. He frequently twitches himself awake, so after a lot of reading and research, I invested in this blanket for him. He absolutely LOVES IT! He appears to be getting really good, solid rest as the twitching is minimized under the weight of this blanket. He has always tried to cocoon himself in his sheets and blankets, so I wish I'd invested in one a long time ago."

7. JO MALONE CANDLE

OK, these are my absolute favorite candles on the market! Yes, they are a bit pricey but you're worth it.  The aromas are very natural and pleasant smelling. I enjoy lighting the candle before I mediate, journal, or simply relax with a glass of wine. Treat yourself and indulge a little. Make self-care a priority in 2020!

Promising Review: "Lighting a Joe Malone scented candle marks your space as your own. The minute you open one you understand the difference - fragrant, beautiful, perfect."

Drop me a note to let me know which one is your favorite. I'd love to hear from you! Here's to a prosperous and productive new decade! 🥂
