With everyone tackling big goals in the new year, who has time to sweat the small stuff? TODAY Style Editor and Professional Girlfriend Bobbie Thomas highlights clever products designed to make the daily tasks a little easier.
Count Me Healthy Bracelets
Count Me Healthy bracelets help you keep track and tally goals throughout the day (i.e. drinking more water, attending more exercise classes or eating more fruits and veggies). The beads represent any numeric goal you are trying to achieve. So, every time you eat an apple or attend a yoga glass, slide a bead from one side to the other as a constant reminder of achieving your goals ($49 and up, chelseacharles.com).
You can also DIY a version using string and beads from your local craft store. Just make sure the beads are snug enough so they don't slip on their own!
Touch screen-friendly gloves are a necessity for the whole family these days. Rather than buying several pricey pairs, scoop up a bottle of Nanotips. The paint-on tonic makes fingertips, tech-friendly. There are two varieties available: one for fuzzy and fleece gloves, and another for leather so you can upgrade any old favorite into a modern must-have ($20, photojojo.com).
Say goodbye to bulk and jingle jangle thanks to this smart, sleek design that reduces your collection of keys to the size of a pack of gum. This product is perfect for guys who carry keys in their pockets — and those of us who seriously need to downsize. Available for up to 10 keys. ($19.98, GetKeySmart.com)
