Welcome to season three of 2020! While it may seem like you're just living the same day, month and year over and over again, we know just the thing — or things, rather — that'll get you out of this funk.

No one can predict how 2022 is going to pan out but you can still prepare and set yourself up for success!

From gadgets that can help you get a better night's sleep to gizmos that will kick stress to the curb where it belongs, we made a list of our favourite products that can help you live your best life during these downright weird times.

Sunrise Alarm Clock

If you struggle to wake up in the dark mornings of winter, you'll benefit from a sunrise alarm clock. This one on Amazon Canada can simulate both a sunrise and a sunset with seven colour-changing lights. It can even wake you up with natural sounds, like birds chirping, instead of that loud and obnoxious alarm we've all gotten accustomed to.
