For the health-conscious, the New Year comes at a cruel time. Just after you've stuffed yourself with turkey at Thanksgiving, indulged in one too many cocktails at holiday parties, and remembered why you love eggnog over Christmas, it's time to start thinking about your 2017 resolution. So it comes as little surprise that for 41.1% of Americans, leading a healthier lifestyle tops the list.

While much of the focus is on healthy actions like going to the gym or whipping up better midweek meals, your surroundings also have a profound effect on your lifestyle. A Dutch study found that styling your home with indoor plants might be all it takes to seriously reduce stress levels while other research suggests people with a well-stocked spice drawer cut their risk of chronic disease and are less likely to over-season their food with salt.

Curious to know what a healthy home looks like? People who prioritize their well-being have these 13 items at the ready.
