THE MIND & BODY WELLNESS EDIT
LET'S FEEL BETTER
The past year has been...well...stressful, to say the very least. Even though we’ve spent A LOT of time alone, it’s been too easy to not prioritize ourselves. For many of us, we’ve let anxiety get the best of us, so it’s no surprise that 40% of US adults reported coping with a mental health issue earlier in the pandemic.
This is all to say, that our mental and physical health likely hasn't gotten the love it needs. But, with spring just around the corner, we’re here to remind you that self-care isn’t just talk.
The term “wellness” gets tossed around a lot, but what we mean is being intentional about supporting both our bodies and minds to achieve our full potential. It’s about being cognizant about what we’re putting into and on our body, making sure everything we use is natural, high-quality, and, most importantly, makes us feel good. Wellness or “self care,” is creating intentional rituals that spark joy and promote health, so that we can live our best lives every day.
So, where to begin?
Maybe it’s taking a full minute to luxuriate your skin in super high-quality moisturizer, or taking a beat at the end of the day with a face mask— figuring out a way to differentiate between work and free time. Creating a ritual around something as simple as taking a multivitamin every morning—something small to remind you that you’re prioritizing your health every single morning.
Below you’ll find our top five picks for products that promote a healthy body, healthy mind, or, more likely, a little bit of both. Things that make you feel good because they are good.
