8 Products to Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

  • Be on Time – Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock with Bed Shaker

    So you resolve to be on time, but you have a habit of sleeping right through your alarm clock or repeatedly smacking the snooze button. Meet the Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock, a gadget that makes it physically impossible for you to continue sleeping. This clock has an adjustable alarm volume with a maximum loudness of 113 decibels, slightly louder than a jackhammer. And if a sound comparable to heavy machinery isn’t enough to snap you into consciousness, there's also a “bed shake” option, which, if placed in your bed, will vigorously vibrate you awake.

The scent is long-lasting and will lull you into a care-free bliss. ($16, Bath & Body Works)
