Self-care is about more than just seeking downtime. Here’s a list of five must-have wellness products that helped us to take better care of ourselves
Self-care is not a one-size-fits-all solution for every problem, but it’s certainly an idea that shouldn’t be neglected. Self-care should have its place in your daily routine because it gives way to some much-needed attention for your physical and emotional health. Think of it as a way to hack your happy hormones and make sure that your body and brain are running smoothly. This is where wellness products come in because these can help move you along. From yoga mats to weighted blankets, here’s a rundown of the five wellness products that could be missing from your life.
Chill Pill Mat
The Chill Pill Mat from local brand Recess is a pill-shaped mat that’s non-slip, anti-microbial, and moisture-wicking. With its cushioned top layer, the mat provides just the right amount of support you need to do yoga, pilates, stretches, circuit drills, and meditation.
Make Space journal
The Make Space guided journal from local business Everyday Explorers is a 128-page journal that’ll jumpstart your daily journaling habit. The Wellness Journal includes prompts to invite introspection and reflection, but the Gratitude Journal is also worth looking into for self-care.
Lift and Lengthen Yoga Block
Lululemon’s Lift and Lengthen Yoga Block is particularly useful for yoga enthusiasts and beginners who need the extra support. These give you a few extra inches to deepen your stretches and provide extra support for the lower back.
Ice Coolie Face Barrel Roller
Suitable for every skin type, Skin Gym’s Ice Coolie Face Barrel Roller is an ice therapy device that provides an intense facial workout. For a radiant glow, use this from 5 to 10 minutes every day on top of your favorite facial serum or moisturizer and roll it along your forehead, cheeks, and neck.
Hug Weighted Blanket
Emma Sleep’s Hug Weighted Blanket provides a relaxing feeling that is sure to improve your sleep quality. It uses 100% breathable bamboo material to leave you feeling cool and comfortable all night long, as well as additional microfiber pads for an extra soft and plush feel.
