2021 Fresh Start Essentials

January 8, 2021

We’re walking right into 2021 with a round-up of products to promote a year of wellness—mentally, physically, and, well, fashionably too. We’re sharing our top must-haves for making a fresh start in the new year to help those good intentions stick with you. —Jeanine Gordon

Tune into your favourite meditation app or turn up your workout playlist in style with a chic pair of wireless headphones. Technology has never looked as good as it does with this luxe Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 pair ($475 at Holt Renfrew).

Whether you’re sore after starting a new workout routine or need to soothe your muscles after hours at your desk, keep this pocket-sized percussive Theragun ($249 from Nordstrom) on hand for relieving tension, cramps and knots, because aches and pains are so last year.

If you made a resolution to drink more water this year, you’re not alone. Dial up your hydration dedication with a high-tech, self-cleaning LARQ water bottle ($125 from Ssense) that will keep you sipping in cutting-edge style. Charge it up via USB and sit back while it cleans your water and bottle every two hours to eliminate up to 99.9999 per cent (phew!) of bio-contaminants.

Walking is a great way to get your steps in, breathe some fresh air and get out of the house…but the rain! A Vancouver-based footwear brand has solved our woes with their Weekend waterproof shoes ($129 from Vessi). These versatile kicks are perfect for taking the dog out in a downpour or power-walking through puddles.

Journalling is a great way to let your emotions out, spark creativity or just vent. If you vowed to put pen to paper this year, try the One Line a Day journal ($19 at Indigo). With space for daily entries over a five-year period, we have all the inspiration needed to write with abandon.
