We’re bringing big boss energy to the new year.
The saying goes: a new year, a new you. But if we could just be honest for a second, building a whole new you sounds exhausting. And not to mention, time consuming. How about in 2022 we all resolve to be the boss version of our already established selves. It seems like a healthier, more positive spin on the mantra of years past.
How do we go about achieving this boss version of ourselves? They’re within us already, we suspect, and in order to summon that energy outward, 365 days of 2022, we need to make the space around us one in which our boss selves can thrive. Luckily, our environment can change with the click of “complete purchase” on a brand’s website. Once you’ve rearranged your furniture to create a more inspiring atmosphere, and sustainably purged the items that inhibit your energy, refill your space with products that’ll elevate you.
We’ve saved you the internet goose chase of finding and researching those particular items. Scan through this list of 22 direct-to-consumer products that will help you to become the boss of this new year. From water bottles that will keep you hydrated to lights that’ll keep your future looking bright, here is what you must have to enter 2022 like a boss.
Organization is key. We’d argue it’s a self-care essential. SortJoy will help you get your sh*t together for the new year with their transformative, and aesthetically pleasing bins.
