    I'm not screaming, you're screaming.

    And TBH, I feel like our New Year's resolutions will be extra powerful — it is the end of a decade and the start of a new one after all.

    To help give you an early mark on those resolutions, here's a bunch of products that will give you a head start on 2020 and the decade ahead.


    It'll almost be like a test run!

    1. This focus journal you can use each morning to gather your thoughts, prioritise your goals and track your progress.

    2. This green tea memory foam mattress that will evenly distribute your weight on its surface, resulting in a great night’s sleep every night.


    An old, tired mattress is generally the reason you can’t get comfortable at night. Replacing that old mattress can relieve aches and pains and ensure you sleep right through until your alarm goes off.. And as we all know, the benefits of a good night’s sleep are undeniable.

    The mattress also comes in a box, making it crazy convenient and easy to order.

    Buy a queen size mattress from Amazon Australia for $369.

    3. Or if you’re not interested in completely replacing your mattress but want a refresh, get your hands on a mattress topper, that will give you a similar result with less effort.


    This mattress topper is gel-infused, meaning it will regulate temperatures — the perfect solution for summer's unbearable heat.

    Buy it for a double bed from Amazon Australia for $73.56.

    4. This cotton weighted blanket that will lessen your anxiety and aid in a good night’s rest.


    If you haven’t tried a weighted blanket yet, you’re missing out. Weight is evenly distributed throughout the stitching of the blanket, making it feel as though you’re being hugged as you sleep. This blanket uses glass beads for the weight distribution rather than fibre, so that you can use it all year round without feeling too hot.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $99.90.

    5. This bathtub caddy tray that will bring your self-care game to another level.


    This caddy also comes with a built-in flip-up frame so that you can prop up your book, iPad or Kindle. It also has a wine glass opening and room for candles, razors and other goodies.

    6. This tea infuser bottle so you can make delicious infused waters rather than reaching for a coffee or soft drink.

    Buy a set of five from Amazon Australia for $34.88.

    10. This cordless vacuum that will make the most mundane chore actually fun.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $25.99.

    13. This vacuum insulated water bottle that will encourage you to drink water.

    14. This wake-up light alarm clock that simulates the sunrise for a more natural awakening.
