Seasons change, and summer is no exception. Summer’s longer days and warmer temperatures encourage us to include more restorative practices into our lives, whether it’s adding more to our diets or adding more to our calendars. As the season winds down, we are now reflecting on the wellness products that have been beneficial to us over the past few months. Here’s a list of all the wellness products that provided us with much-needed relief.
While I enjoy the process of creating delicious, organic (mostly-plant-based) meals with my family, I sometimes need to take a break from the kitchen. Splendid Spoon has just released a new line of high-protein, ready-to-eat meal plans. They are a game-changer! They are customizable and delicious, and they can be delivered right to your doorstep. There are so many options that I will be returning to this female-founded company’s delicious meals over and over again.
Is this a summer wellness staple? Yes. FitVine was ad-supported and I was able to order it. It is delicious and crisp and has less than 1 gram sugar per liter. Pro wellness tip: I like to serve it chilled and then sip it while I soak in the hot tub.
Not sure what food would be like without Hawthorne Farm sauerkraut–I literally eat it with every meal these days (including eggs!). There are many flavors to choose from, and all are delicious. But lately, I have been choosing the jalapeno flavor. It packs a punch, yet is clean and vibrant. You all know that I love to talk about the benefits of fermented foods on gut health, and how they can improve brain and mood function. You might not be familiar with this company but you should definitely Google them. They are a 501(c),3 nonprofit that is dedicated to social and cultural regeneration through the integration education, agriculture and research.
The roller-ball applicator is great for targeted massages. It dries quickly, so I don’t have to worry making a mess. The formula contains a soothing 100mg broad-spectrum of jojoba, avocado, and safflower oils.
Amalfi Lemon & Mint Reed Diffuser
I love it! It’s a simple way to transform and refresh a room without decorating your apartment. It has notes of mint, orange, and lemon that instantly fill my home with a calming and energizing scent that lifts my spirits. It is long-lasting and not overwhelming.
It consists of several body-movement sequences using ankle and arm weights to create balance in the body. These sessions last just over an hour and are a great mental break to get me through my day.
Although I love running outdoors, I don’t always want to melt. The bike is perfect for me because I can stream the Peloton app from my TV (AC on blast). I have been to many gyms and tried many spin bikes over the years, so I was very picky about what I wanted in a bike. But I trusted the Schwinn brand and I haven’t been disappointed. It pairs well with the most adorable spin shoes on sale, the.
Power Couple Kit
This serum is packed with ingredients that can detoxify your skin and prevent the signs of aging. This Power Couple Kit includes the Detox Serum and Instant Smoothing Serum. It’s a fantastic deal.
Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars
I recently tried the Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars from Unreal, and they also got the job done and satiated my sugar craving. These bars are low in sugar, vegan, gluten free, Fair Trade certified, Fair Trade certified, and many other great qualities.
Although I wish I had more time to ensure I get the right nutrients, these postnatal vitamins take all the guesswork out. I can’t live without Ritual vitamin in 2021.
Neon Weighted Bangles
I’ve been known to follow a trend or two, but I also love to stand out. Although these Bala Bangles are all over the place, I’ve never seen anyone wearing the neon rainbow version. With colors like these woven into my workout routine, I have a feeling I can carry my positive vibes to the fall.
I just discovered this mindful snack that doubles as a mom hack. These “brownie bits” are a great snack to have before a workout. My toddler thinks they’re unhealthy treats. PS: These have a romantic brand story. A husband who was a breast cancer survivor created a healthier alternative to protein bars that are preservative-packed for his wife.
The pill is a game-changer for me as someone who has sensitive stomachs. It keeps everything in balance. I take it before a big meal or a day of grazing.
Lemon Ginger Sparkling Probiotic (Pack of 6)
KeVita’s sparkling probiotic range is a great choice! These drinks have a refreshing, crisp taste and are lightly carbonated. Sparkling probiotic drinks are made with their own water kefir culture. This gives them billions of live bacteria.
Adaptogenic Mushroom Powder
This powder is a staple in my smoothies, morning coffees, yogurt bowls, and other dishes. It is amazing, and if this has ever interested you, you should check out the many products Anima Mundi offers.
