Today’s post is dedicated to my favorite wellness products that have been helping me recharge my health. At the end of last year, I was feeling, so blah – no energy, no focus, always in a funk. I have been calling them my slug days. Because I basically felt just like a slug – leaving a trail of sluggish bad energy behind me everywhere I went. I wanted to majorly overhaul my self-care and wellness to start the new year, so I started integrating easy, little habits to kickstart the process of getting back on track.
I definitely want to expand on these three categories in the next few months, but as a quick intro, I am sharing what’s been helping me FEEL more like me!
See below for three of my favorite wellness products this month!
Essential oils are quickly becoming part of my everyday routine! Right now, I’m using a mixture of both Doterra oils and Aveda’s balancing chakra oils. I use the Doterra Lavender on my inner wrists to help me sleep deeper and Breathe in the diffusor if I’m having sinus issues before bedtime. To get the morning started, I add Lemon to my water for my workouts. After workouts, I’ll pick a chakra oil to spray depending on what my motivation for the day is. I would love love love to get more into essential oils in a longer post soon! Let me know in the comments if you have any favorites or combinations I should try!
Dry Brushing / Exfoliation
I’ve talked about dry brushing before and how important it is to the body’s lymphatic system, but I’ve discovered this little handheld exfoliator that basically acts like a dry brush for my face! Crystal Smooth has a crystalized head that comes in three different strengths. (I’ve worked my way up to moderate!) I use it in between my PMD sessions for a routine that’s super close to microdermabrasion at home!
You guys… I LOVE Diet Coke. It’s been my biggest vice for years!! But I knew to make any healthy progress this year, ditching the soda was one thing that had to happen. My Diet Coke served as my afternoon pick-me-up after my morning coffee wore off. That first sip out of the can – it was like a drug – anyone feel me on this? There was basically no way I was going to quit cold turkey. I had to find something that still gave me that little fizzy lift. Since around November, I have officially switched to carbonated water (or sparkling if you wanna be fancy). There are a ton of flavors out there if you can’t get on board with just normal carbonated water. Zevia has a TON of flavors that almost feel like you’re drinking a soda. So, I am still giving myself an afternoon treat now without all the chemicals!
