We're officially in the second week of 2012, and the holidays already feel like the distant past. And as for those oh-so-achievable resolutions made but 10 days ago? They've already disappeared into a black hole, like all of those emails you were so intent on keeping organized this year. In the U.K., research shows that 92 per cent of dieters have already gone back to sweets and fatty foods, and Britain also marks January 9 as the day when resolutions go kaput.

Instead of shrugging and pushing these best of intentions to the back of your mind, why not try to jump back on the bandwagon? After all, there's no rule that says changes must start January 1st, or else.

Almost every expert in the wide variety of fields affiliated with New year's resolutions notes that keeping resolutions small, and keeping them concrete are the most likely indicators of success.

So we've put together some easy tools and products that we think will help with the most common -- and most commonly broken -- New Year's resolution.
