    1. This six-minute diary, which will keep you on track if you're determined to practise mindfulness.

    Amazon

    This journal encourages you to change your habits in order to achieve happiness, mindfulness and productive thinking. It's based on the mantra that just six minutes out of your day is enough time to assess where you're at and what you need to improve. It includes monthly check-in pages, habit trackers and weekly notes for your own thoughts and ideas, while giving you the information about positive psychology, self reflection and changing habits.

    2. This FOREO facial cleansing brush that is so easy and quick to use that you'll find it hard to make excuses.

    Amazon

    I've recently started using this tool and I'm someone who rarely ever bothers with skincare, so the fact that I've been dragging my feet to the bathroom to exfoliate my skin each night is a miracle, trust me! It only takes 60 seconds for a guided cleanse, then you rinse and apply moisturiser and voilà — you're good to go!

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $237.

    4. This sound machine that encourages your best sleep, which is perfect for your eight hour commitment.

    Amazon

    This sound machine has 20 unique sounds that don’t loop. There’s also a sleep timer, so you don’t have to worry about it running all night.


    Promising review:
    "Light sleeper, apartment dweller: This sound machine literally changed my life. I moved into an apartment for the first time in my life one year ago and hearing my neighbours move around at night used to make me so anxious. This little machine blurs it all out! I CANNOT sleep without it now, it's the best purchase I have ever made and I would seriously recommend any light sleepers purchase it. My partner now loves it too."

    14. This desk calendar, so that you can plan your day out and watch your progress as you go.

    Amazon

    I'm usually an incredibly disorganised person, but since I started using a desk calendar to map out my weeks, I've been productive as heck. Seeing all the things I need to do and crossing out things that I've already done is hella helpful and I'd absolutely recommend it to anyone with a desk job.

    This desk organiser has a gorgeous floral design and lets you see your entire month at a glance. This way, you know what's coming up and what needs to be completed and, let me tell you, the act of ripping a week out as you begin a new one is borderline orgasmic.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $14.99.

    15. This pill organiser, so that you don't forget to take your essential meds, as well as your daily vitamins.

    If you've ever suffered from absent minded housemates (or kids) putting dirty dishes in a dishwasher full of clean dishes, this little guy will be a lifesaver. All you have to do is turn the tab to indicate whether they should or shouldn't chuck their dish in — think public bathroom cubicle. It also has a "running" function, so they don't try to yank it open mid-clean.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $16.99.

    18. And finally, this waterproof timer that you can keep in your shower to avoid wasting water and stay on time.
