Self-care is another important area and the holidays can be a great time to have family members go in on larger gifts together. I recently started tracking my sleep, stress, oxygen, and heart rate. I find that looking at this data daily is very useful to boost my health and productivity. I use this Garmin Venu fitness watch. I also love my Oura Ring. It gathers similar information as the watch, and because it’s a ring, it’s more comfortable to wear to sleep. So if I’m trying to view my stats real time or during a workout, I prefer my watch, but if it’s sleep related I like my Oura ring.
The Apollo Neuro is great for kids and adults alike. It is a new kind of wearable that improves the body’s resilience to stress, so you can relax, sleep, focus, and recover. It’s like a wearable hug for your nervous system that helps you be calmer.
It can be worn on the wrist or ankle and works by engaging with your sense of touch, delivering silent, soothing vibrations that help you feel safe and in control. Apollo Neuro’s scientifically validated technology trains your nervous system to bounce back from stress more quickly, going from “fight or flight” to “rest and digest”. So far I am loving it and do notice a reduction in my stress levels when I wear it! In fact, I even recently wrote about this in my article on Healthy Solutions for Happy Holidays because it is so helpful in reducing my feelings of stress. They are running a holiday deal, you can take $50 off one device or $200 OFF on the second device. This special is available 12/5-12/17.
I get asked all the time about my favorite air filter. Having clean indoor air is so important. And what is really frustrating is that our indoor air can be 2 to 5 times—or even up to 100 times—more polluted than outdoor air! Air Doctor is the brand I use in my home because they are the first affordable air purifier that not only removes virtually 100% of the particle pollution but the vast majority of toxic ozone and volatile organic compounds which can cause eye, nose, and throat irritation, frequent headaches, nausea and also liver, kidney and central nervous system damage. They have 3 models to choose from depending on your needs.
