Setting realistic goals for yourself in the New Year may sound simple enough, but the difficult part is staying motivated and actually following through with them. Whether or not you can stick to your 2020 resolution is entirely up to you. However, we pulled together some trusty tips and life-enhancing gadgets that we hope will inspire you to be your best self (and make your day-to-day goals that much easier to achieve).

Start Using A Planner

It’s 2020, and planners are no longer simply for mapping out your to-do’s. Invest in a hybrid journal that allows you to track goals, clearly devise long and short-term plans and maintain structure in ways far more interactive and inspiring than penciling in your (overwhelmingly endless) agenda.

Download A Time-Management App

Whether you need more structure on weeknights, can’t focus during your midday study session or can’t find the time to finally get to that doctor’s appointment you’ve been putting off, downloading a time-management app specific to your personal needs could be a true lifesaver when it comes to staying on track.

Always Have A Backup Workout Plan

You’re tired. It’s raining. You forgot to bring your gym bag to work. When you’re not in the mood to make that six o’clock Pilates class, the list of excuses could span decades. Invest in a couple of at-home exercise accessories like wearable weights, dumbbells or a resistance band so you can get a quick workout anytime, anywhere.

Track Your Every Move

A fitness tracker won’t just keep tabs on your daily steps, it also tells you how much sleep your getting, how many calories you’re burning and more. Conduct a quick audit of your every move to discover the areas in your life that could use some improvement.
