If you're one of those people who makes New Year's resolutions but winds up backpedaling on your promises, you're not alone. Almost 70% of Americans make at least one New Year's resolution, but far fewer actually follow through. So how can we keep on track with going after our goals? Part of the trick is preparation and fully immersing yourself in meeting your target.

Believe it or not, the majority of us all wish for the same things. Most years, both resolutions include losing weight and eating healthier, which explains why so many people get a gym membership in January. Next on the list? People are looking to get their finances in order and save money. Some of the other resolutions on the list include learning a new hobby, making new friends, and finding love.

How did New Year's resolutions start in the first place? It's a ritual that actually goes back thousands of years, starting with the ancient Babylonians. They started each year with a promise to pay off their debts or returned borrowed items, but it was the ancient Romans who connected the ceremony with January. At the start of every year, they made a promise to the Roman god Janus—who inspired the name of the month.

Through the 20th and 21st centuries, the number of people that make resolutions has slowly increased, with many of us hoping for health, wealth, and happiness. So what are some things that can help us make it through the rest of the year with our goals accomplished? We took a look at the most common New Year's resolutions and compiled a list of cool items that will make it a breeze to stick out the year and fulfill your promise.

Let's look at some fun and unique products that will make it a breeze to keep yourself on track and meet your goals in the New Year.
