Taking control of our own personal health and wellness is higher on our agendas now than ever before. We know that to stay healthier for longer, we need to eat right, exercise, drink plenty of water, avoid stress and get enough sleep.
Now, there’s plenty of products designed to help. Here’s our round up of the top ten wellness products worth having in your home.
- Cook Books
Home cooking is a skill many of us have lost, but with so many cook books now available, it’s simpler to get creative in the kitchen.
Browse your local book store or charity shop (try to avoid tax-dodging, overzealous packaging masters, Amazon) and see what takes your fancy. You’ll find everything from vegan through to the heaviest of carnivorous recipes to delight all taste buds.
- Yoga Apps
Yoga doesn’t have to be done expertly. Yoga apps such as Yoga Studio have beginner classes that are easy to follow in the comfort of your own home. All you need is a yoga mat and stretchy clothing.
- Mindfulness Books and Apps
Our mental health is as important as our physical health. Mindfulness and meditation books and apps help to guide us through being more present.
Just a few minutes a day helps us to unwind, be more present and be better able to deal with the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Again, browse local shops or join up to your library, or take a look at your app store for guided meditation apps.
- Reusable Water Bottles, Shopping Bags, Coffee Cups and Cutlery
Technically, these are for the wellness of the planet, but what feels better for our own health and wellbeing than looking after Mother Nature? Single use plastics are the devil – avoid them at all costs!
- Natural Sleep Aids
Getting enough sleep is crucial, but so many of us are sleep deprived. Try taking a natural sleep supplement to ensure you’re getting your full complement of seven to eight hours a night.
Unlike conventional sleeping tablets, they won’t make you feel groggy, you’ll just feel refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Many of us could do with a little extra help nutritionally. If we’re burning the candle at both ends, a multivitamin can help make sure we’re not lacking in anything. Vegans benefit from taking vitamin B12 supplements and omega 3 supplements are useful for teenagers undergoing exams.
Antioxidant green tea extract is great for all round immune health.
- Fully Stocked Tea Cupboard
Talking of tea, never underestimate the power of a good cuppa. We have herbal teas for morning, bedtime and everything in between.
Sit back, relax and enjoy five minutes of escapism with a hot cup of healing herbs. I even have a friend who swears by a camomile tea to give her the same sleepy feeling she gets after a G&T!
- Anything Hemp
Hemp is quite rightly having its day as a healthy addition to any diet. Made from the same plant as cannabis, it doesn’t contain any THC, the psychoactive compound, so it won’t cause any highs or lows.
It’s perfectly legal, and hemp powders, gums, teas and oils are packed with nutritional benefits.
- A Decent Blender
Having something like a Nutribullet to whizz up smoothies (here’s one of our fave recipes) means you can get loads of vitamins and minerals in a flash.
Add a superfood powder or two and you’ll benefit even more!
