I take wellness pretty seriously as is, but every year, without fail, I still put the same thing at the top of my New Year's resolutions: Pursue a healthier lifestyle. In the past, that's looked like hitting the gym more often, making more plant-based meals at home and actually getting a good night's sleep instead of watching another episode of House Hunters.

This year, though, I'm planning to cut down on mental clutter. In fact, I actually used those precious days between Christmas and New Year's Day to finally organize my home office, shred a stack of documents that had been gathering dust, clean up my computer, clear out my inbox and start a guided journal. And let me just say that I already feel a lot better because of it.

Whatever wellness resolution you're working on this year, just know that you're in good company. Here are some tried-and-true items that will help you start off on the right foot and see your goals to the finish line.
