- Bring nature’s music indoors. While staying at Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida; the sound of waterfalls lulled me into a deep sleep. At Relache Spa within the resort, I laid back and relaxed to the sound of birds in a rainforest while I sipped on lavender infused coconut water.I recommend searching YouTube and/or Spotify for the sounds that’ll put you at ease. Some waterfall recordings sound the same as static, which is not relaxing. My favorite so far is the Shallow Heavy Waterfall that I found on Spotify.
- Organic Dried Lavender (https://amzn.to/2Z0AEEB). You put the lavender in the coconut and drink them both up. Rest. Relax. Lavender is versatile. From promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety to alleviating hay fever it does a body and mind so much good. I plan to make some lavender coconut water as soon as my dried lavender arrives. Drinking it at the resort spa was so Ah-mazing.
Peeled Gently Dried Fruit Snacks (https://amzn.to/2Z0x9Ot).
Peeled fruit snacks are good for you, for the environment, and for the farmers. The Paradise Blend is delicious. It has gently dried bananas, pineapples, and mangos.
What’s so good-for-you about them? They’re gluten-free, dairy-free, sulfite-free, and they have zero added sugar.
Peeled has a B Corps certification, a USDA organic certification, and they’re non-GMO verified.
In case you haven’t heard of B corps before, B Corps businesses are dedicated to fair labor, as well as the social and cultural rights of workers. They meet high environmental and social standards.
- Ello glass water bottle (https://amzn.to/2H5PcwS). I can’t stand drinking water from a metal container and I’m not so fond of handwashing plastic water bottles. When I found the Ello Aura Glass Water Bottle, I bought it. After a couple of days using it, I’m loving it. The water tastes how water should. Now I’m not buying plastic water bottles (more expense and bad for the environment). It’s dishwasher safe. What more do I need to love about a water bottle?
- I am a proud owner of an Ello coffee mug (https://amzn.to/2N4IsTp). I love it for the same reasons that I love the water bottle. It’s ceramic, so there’s no funky metal taste messing up my morning coffee or tea. Like the water bottle, it’s dishwasher safe and keeps me from wasting paper travel cups.
