The Collective is a truly inspiring magazine for savvy women.

As another year draws to a close, it’s time to reflect and look back on what we have overcome, achieved and celebrated in 2017. Did you manage to stick to the New Year’s resolutions you made 12 months ago? Or are you struggling to even remember them?

If you want to make 2018 the year to better yourself, we have rounded up some helpful and inspirational products to make you stay on track!

Commit To Your Goals In Writing…

Whether you want to start your own business this year, become more mindful or simply get your fitness back on track, the Dailygreatness Journals will become your new best friend. Founded by “recovering self-help junkie” Lyndelle Palmer Clarke, the diary series helps you to commit to your goals with simple written exercises and progress-tracking updates, as well as motivational chapters.

Lyndelle says, “I’ve made it my life mission to empower you to apply all those self-help ideas into your life in a fun, practical and dynamic way so you can start seeing results. No more wishful thinking, no more reaching for the next self-help book, just a commitment to being your own guru, following your inspiration and living the life of your dreams.”

Break Bad Habits…

If you’ve been struggling to break through the subconscious thinking patterns that make you anxious, stressed or reach for vices like cigarettes and foodie treats, hypnosis sessions may be the answer. Tribe’s editor Liv has had several sessions with astonishing results and you can read about her experience here.

We highly recommend London-based hypnotherapist Chloe Brotheridge. She says, “Hypnotherapy does not work like a magic wand, it still requires commitment. It is however, an amazingly effective and easy way to make positive changes to your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.” If you’re not ready to try hypnosis just yet, Chloe’s book The Anxiety Solution: A Quieter Mind, A Calmer You aims to guide you to a calmer, happier and more confident self and has won rave reviews.

Become More Mindful…

With anxiety and stress levels ever on the rise, interest in meditation and mindfulness has also grown. Guided meditation app Headspace teaches you how both skills in just a few minutes per day, easily accessible via your mobile phone wherever and whenever you need it. The app is free to download and offers a step-by-step beginner’s guide to meditation and mindfulness, as well as targeted audio sessions focussing on subjects on everything from anger issues to improving relationships or self esteem and learning how to increase your productivity at work. Some content requires in-app purchases.

Read Something That Inspires You…

Have you ever felt that the current magazine market is lacking publications that truly inspire and give you valuable advice beyond the usual sex, relationship and lifestyle dross? Then you need to know about Australian magazine Collective Hub. Filled with stories about fascinating start-ups, interviews with some of the world’s biggest female entrepreneurs as well as up and coming business talent and, above all, tips and encouragement for those who set out on their own to create a project that reflects their passions, founder Lisa Messenger has created a truly visionary platform for savvy women. Peruse their beautiful website and Instagram account, or if you want to store all that shared wisdom and motivation in your home office, subscribe to the print edition here.

Take The Hassle Out Of Healthy Eating…

Too busy to cook healthy and diet-friendly meals during your working week? The Pure Package offers home-delivery meal plans tailor-made to help you detox, lose weight or even match your DNA. Providing all three main meals as well as healthy snacks, the service is a London Fashion Week favourite and the perfect solution if you’re stretched for time.

If you can’t resist the call of the takeaway but don’t want to blow up your good intentions with just one meal, Chelsea Kitchen is the answer to your prayers! Well-known UK chefs create delivery menus that cater to gluten, dairy and wheat-free – as well as vegetarian and vegan – diets. With prices starting from as  little as £4.95, it won’t break the bank either!

Get Fitspo Straight To Your Phone…

She’s got the envy-inducing Instagram account and incredible success stories to prove her Bikini Body Guides work, and since last year Australian fitness expert Kayla Itsines has an app, too! Sweat With Kayla brings you simple workouts – no equipment needed – and healthy recipes straight to your phone, so there really is no excuse. You can even upload your progress pictures and statistics side by side to see how you’re getting on.

Learn A New Skill…

If you are thinking about a career change, want to learn a new language or add some creative strings to your bow, online education provider Alison.com offers free courses and learning across a huge variety of subjects, covering everything from languages to business topics and graphic design skills. This year, the website made headlines for offering a photography course that was taught at Harvard University online, completely free – which has since been removed but there are still loads of interesting and career-furthering classes to choose from.
