What better way to start the new year than by learning new ways to reduce stress? In this New York Times bestseller, Dan Harris is sharing his personal story, explaining his methods of dealing with stress and anxiety for even the busiest of humans.

Why We Love It

Nowadays, it can be rather challenging to find that inner peace we’re all yearning for. While some people may be skeptical about the genre of self-help, this book breaks the prejudice by being straight-forward, incredibly honest, and truly motivational.

Price: from $12.80

Available on Amazon

2. Niod Photography Fluid

Are you tired of your skin looking dull and lackluster in photographs (and IRL)? If you’re all about a dewy complexion, you’ll love this innovative photography fluid which creates the appearance of an even skin tone in photographs and in the mirror, in addition to blurring imperfections and promoting skin radiance.

Why We Love It

Even though this product was specifically designed for photography purposes, you’ll also love the radiance it provides in person. What’s more, it is an oil-free, serum-textured, deeply hydrating formula.

Price: $28

3. LifeStraw Go Water Filter Bottle

With our plastic waste in the spotlight, there’s no better time to make wise, eco-friendly choices and cut down on plastic as much as possible. Our oceans depend on it! This reusable water bottle is a BPA-free and a super convenient alternative to bottled water you can take anywhere. Another thing you’ll love about this bottle is that it features a 2-stage activated carbon filter to keep your water free of odors & bacteria. Win-Win!

Why We Love It

Not only is it our primary concern to be conscious when it comes to plastic use, but also to prioritize hydration at all times. Having a convenient, leak-proof water bottle on-the-go will motivate you to stay hydrated throughout the day, even on cold winter days.

Price: $44.95

4. Premium Liposomal Vitamin C

Did you know that Vitamin C, as important as it is, is not naturally produced in our bodies? That’s right! We can only get it from dietary sources and its essential to our health. Boost your immunity, rejuvenate your skin, and stimulate collagen production in your body. These are just a few of the important roles that Vitamin C plays in keeping ourselves healthy from the inside-out.  

Why We Love It

Liposomal Vitamin C isn’t just any Vitamin C. This revolutionary liposomal delivery system (LET) offers the highest bioavailability on the market ( up to 6x absorbency of traditional vitamin c tablets, capsules, and powders). Plus you won’t get any digestive discomfort even with higher doses! We recommend you grab a bottle as a gift and for yourself!

5. Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown

Do you find yourself struggling to set priorities in life and in work? If this is a recurring issue in your life, and you can’t seem to find a way to stay focused, you’ll love the criteria proposed in this audiobook. The author presents this audiobook as a systematic discipline forcing us to eliminate the unnecessary, making room for what’s truly essential.

Why We Love It

We’re always on a hunt for new productivity methods which motivate us to make better choices and remain organized. Based on essentialism, this audiobook pushes us in the right direction, casting the light on what actually matters.

Pure Vegan Omega-3 capsules, sustainably-sourced from Marine Algae are a rich source of both DHA & EPA and support cognitive health, cardiovascular health, your immune system, as well as your skin & eyes as you age. What’s more, omega-3s are a must during pregnancy, as they have been shown to support prenatal development.

7. Cardiio Heart Rate Monitor

Unfortunately, heart rate is one of the least-discussed health metrics that is actually one of the primary markers of longevity. While this might not be your traditional gift, it is certainly a great idea for any loved ones needing to take better care of their ticker, since this app measures heart rate by simply placing a finger on top of the camera. So simple! The Cardio Heart Rate Monitor also allows you to save and track your results.

8. Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides 300g

When it comes to the benefits of collagen, it’s hard to summarize all of them in a single sentence. Collagen is a superfood for a reason! Optimal collagen levels are necessary for muscle, joint, ligament, bone, and skin health as you age, acting as the essential connective glue that holds our body together. And, if you think you don’t need collagen because our bodies produce it on their own, think again! Our collagen reserves begin to deplete significantly as we age, which is why supplementation has become so important.

Why We Love It

This easy 30-day starter container is the perfect way to get hooked and make a collagen an official 1-scoop a day habit for 2020. Amandean’s collagen is also free of any dairy, sugar, gluten, soy, or artificial flavoring and offers the best solubility on the market. It’s super easy to mix into your coffee, juice, smoothie, or even water bottle. Basically, picking up a couple of these containers is a no brainer.

Price: $19.95

All too often, diabetic diets focus on cutting things out rather than adding things in, making it extremely difficult to get adequate levels of protein and other nutrients.

Getting Your Best Spin Class From Home

January 15, 2021

As a competitive weightlifter, I’m breaking an unwritten rule of the sport by even engaging in cardio activities. But, if there’s one thing this pandemic has taught me, and I’m sure many of us, it’s that desperate times call for desperate measures.

The gut is at the center of a lot of health and wellness conversations right now.
