You know what helps me get excited to get healthy? New cool shit. If I have a brand new 800 strap florescent pink sports bra waiting for me in my gym bad, I’m a thousand times more excited to hit the gym. New sneakers? Forget it, I’m a bouncing ball of joy on my way to the treadmill.
So I’ve compiled a list of the new, cool stuff I’ve been sporting that is helping me feel or be healthier right now.
#5 PiperWai Natural Deodorant
This stuff is the answer to my deodorant prayers. When I started learning about the negative affects of chemicals in conventional deodorants I went on a rampage trying to find a natural deodorant that worked and didn’t feel sticky and weird. One night I was watching Shark Tank and these women came on claiming that it was the next best thing and I immediately ordered one. Hold. the. phone. It worked! At first it was a little weird because you have to rub it on with your finger, but you get over it. The price is a bit high at $12 per container, but it’s worth knowing I’m not lathering terrible chemicals on such a sensitive area of my body.
#4 Corkcicle Water Bottle
Everyone knows that drinking more water is better for your health, but sometimes it’s hard to remember to do it. For me, if I have a super cute water bottle staring me in the face, I will drink from it just out of pure attraction. Plus, this bottle keeps the water ice cold so it’s refreshing even if it’s been sitting at my desk for 8 hours.
#3 The Leaf
This is like a FitBit, but is actually attractive to look at. The Leaf is also created specifically for women and not only tracks your activity and sleep, but also tracks your stress level and fertility. So cool! You can wear it as a bracelet, necklace or just clip it to your pants. It can also vibrate you awake if you so please.
#2 Nike AirMax FlyKnit Sneakers
Cute on cute on cute. ‘Nuff said.
This standing desk has rocked my world over the past few weeks. I used to get really bad hip pain from sitting so long at my job. Now I can raise it when I want and lower it when I get tired. I thought I would stand all day long, but you actually have to slowly ease into it since sadly my body is not used to standing for long periods of time. But I’ll get there!
It’s funny how just a few items can make a big different in how healthy you feel or how motivated you are to get healthy. It just goes to show that shopping for new stuff is not all bad! Plus it’s good cardio 🙂
