Your home has a big effect on your wellness. For instance, what you have in your kitchen can inform how and what you eat. Your décor can make you feel relaxed and comfortable. Your tech can help you get things done faster and help you stay organized, too. If you feel home at home, then you'll feel good personally. And when you feel good, that helps your interactions with real life—your job, your relationships, etc.

So what better time to improve your house (and, by extension, yourself) than by taking advantage of Amazon Prime Day? There are some great deals on home buys to check out during the online retailer's massive sales event. Right now, Amazon has dropped some early discounts. We've rounded up some of the best out there (and we'll continuously update as we hear of more deals).

This is the vacuum that will actually make the act of vacuuming a lot easier, and dare we say it, enjoyable. There's a reason Dyson's devices are so popular. This one is lightweight, cordless, and can clean even the hardest-to-reach nooks and crannies. It works on all floor types.

"Alexa, just organize my life," is sometimes what I want to tell my Echo. Instead, Alexa helps me play music, add events to my calendar, update my grocery list, call Ubers, and so much more. So that's sort of the same thing, right?

Yes, you are reading the price correctly. The kitchen gadget—it's a pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, and so much more—that started a whole cooking movement is more than half off. You can now buy into the hype at a steep discount.

One of the reasons you might not be getting a good night's sleep is because your mattress might need an upgrade. There are a lot of great Prime Day deals on mattresses, like this one from bed-in-a-box brand Leesa.

I like to think the AirFryer was sent to us from the fried-food gods. You can make french fries and fried chicken the "healthier" way in this genius device. And if you're on a health kick, you can also make fruit and veggie chips with the dehydrating function.

This bundled deal is awesome—you get the Ring video doorbell to make you feel a little safer at home (or when you're away from home), and the Echo Dot for just under $300. The Ring device lets you answer your front door from anywhere and lets you monitor your visitors or deliveries from your phone, computer, or tablet.

Seriously, what can't this thing do? It's an air purifier, heater, and fan all in one. Even if the price might seem steep even with the discount, you can justify it with the plan that you'll be using this year-round.

Get your house clean for guests, even when you aren't home. You can control your Roomba from the iRobot Home app, and it's also compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

When was the last time you bought a fresh set of towels? If it's been a while, now might be the time for an update. After a long stressful day, there's nothing better for self-care than a nice shower and a cozy towel to dry off.

Keep track of serving sizes with this super-affordable food scale. As an added bonus, a portion of your purchase will go to Greater Goods' charity partners.

The Fire TV Stick was a best seller last Prime Day, and this year, we're predicting that it will still be popular, thanks to the age of streaming. It can connect to just about anything, from Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Go to Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora.

Maybe you don't need a new mattress, but want some extra comfort—hat's where a mattress topper comes in. This one is made out of two inches of memory foam and conforms to your body so you can sleep a lot better and feel more energized in the mornings.

Always get the temperature to just right with this smart thermostat. You can control it through Amazon Alexa, and any iOS or Android device. Plus, the more you're able to control your thermostat in a smart way, the more you'll be able to save on utility bills.

Want to treat yourself to some self-care on a budget? Snag some fresh bedding on Prime Day and rest easy. This sheet set is under $30 and comes with a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases.

If you're serious about your smoothies and smoothie bowls, then you might need a serious blender. Vitamix blenders are no joke. This one is smart enough to automatically adjust settings and has a built-in digital timer.

Don't forget about your pets this Prime Day. Monitor your dog's activity through your phone when you're away from home—plus you can even "toss" them treats from the device. There's two-way audio, so you can hear your dog barking, but you can also speak to them through the Furbo.

Marie Kondo's KonMari method isn't going anywhere anytime soon, so why not embrace it wholeheartedly and upgrade your newly organized closet with some velvet hangers? We really do believe that a decluttered home can do wonders for your mental health.

If one of your goals this year was to read more, the Kindle will help you get there (even though we're halfway through the year, you can still reach your goal!). The new Kindle device comes with three months' free of Kindle Unlimited, which gives you access to millions of eBooks.

We recently covered how to wake up easier, and this product was in our list of recommendations. The alarm clock has a light that simulates the sun, which will come in handy if you don't have a lot of sunlight in your bedroom, or for dreary winter days.

Make your on-the-go smoothies and shakes with the NutriBullet system. The lids make it so easy to transport. The sale price can't be beat, either.

If you can't go a day without sparkling water, you might want to invest in a SodaStream, that might save you money on your regular purchases of LaCroix, Spindrift, or Pellegrino.
