Resolutions aren’t for everyone, but there are some worth trying — even if last year’s were a total write-off.

We get it—every year, you make the same resolution to wake up earlier, meditate, journal and quietly sip your morning coffee all before the workday begins. Somewhere along the line, motivation got lost. It doesn’t help that the New Year comes when the days are extra long, dark and dreary.

Last year was one worthy of weekday sleep-ins and midday naps, but you can start off 2021 by making the best attempt at a better you, all with the help of some products built to help you get the best running head start at early, productive days.

One of our personal favourite products is the Sunrise Alarm Clock by Heimvision, a unique product that pairs with Alexa to help you start your mornings in peace. It’s time to leave loud, obnoxious alarms in the past and wake calmly.
