Every Jan. 1, we set intentions and hope for a good year. But 2021 is a whole other ball game — with millions of people ready to make drastic lifestyle changes from 2020.

National surveys have determined Americans’ top resolutions this year. Unsurprisingly, more than half of respondents are hoping to exercise regularly and lose whatever weight they might have put on during quarantine, according to a CIT Bank survey. But there are some new resolutions that are proving increasingly popular in 2021: like practice better self-care, build better habits and maintain a positive outlook on life.

To help TODAY readers looking for a fresh start in 2021, lifestyle expert Jenn Falik stopped by the show to share her "Better Basics" for keeping your New Year’s resolutions on track. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, stay organized or maybe just relax more this January, Falik’s must-haves will help you stick to your goals.

This gallon-sized water bottle comes with motivational markers to keep you on track and hydrated throughout the day.

2. Bluapple Produce Saver

One common excuse for not buying fresh produce is how quickly it can go bad. Knock out two resolutions with this one nifty little gadget.

If taking better care of your skin is your 2021 resolution, don’t let high price points steer you away from your goal.
