Your journey to holistic wellness starts here.

article @SPORTYANDRICH

As we step into a new year, it's a golden opportunity to reset our lifestyles, ensuring they align with the needs of our bodies and minds. Thanks to the wellness boom over the last few years, we're (hopefully) all aware of the importance of self-care, which goes beyond just being in good physical health. We cannot continue to work, socialize, work out, and be there for others if we aren't there for ourselves. Mental and physical health are very closely linked, and it's important to care for both equally because problems in one area can impact the other. 

The question then becomes, where do we begin? The wellness landscape is vast and often confusing, with endless advice bombarding us from all sides, especially on social media. "Lower your cortisol with these simple hacks!" "Live an anti-inflammatory lifestyle!" "10 things I did to glow up!" But what does this all really mean in practice, and how can we do it, too?

With so many tools and devices on the market addressing everything from inflammation and hormone imbalance down to the seemingly simple (but most daunting) choice of the right water bottle, it's easy to feel lost in a sea of wellness products. But fear not; we've meticulously sifted through the noise to bring you a starter pack that our editors have tried, tested, handpicked, and endorsed, ensuring you understand exactly how each item supports your well-being. Together, we're entering a healthier, more harmonious 2024.

OWALA FreeSip

You might think all water bottles are the same until you meet the Owala FreeSip. It epitomizes the concept of an "emotional support water bottle" - once you have it, leaving it behind becomes unthinkable. The Owala strikes that "just right" balance, like Goldilocks' perfect find. Not only does it keep your water perfectly chilled all day, but its design allows for upright sipping without the need to purse your lips, cleverly keeping those wrinkle concerns at bay. It's the little things that make all the difference, and this bottle understands that perfectly.

ERBA woke + focus

When it comes to supplements, we enter another endless maze of choices. That's precisely why discovering trustworthy adaptogenic blends packed with natural ingredients and backed by proven health benefits is such a game-changer in our quest for wellness. Erba uses ancient Ayurvedic wisdom to create a unique blend of superfoods, adaptogens, and nootropics to support the demands of our modern fast-moving lifestyles. Each formula is thoughtfully crafted by leading nutritionists to ensure optimal mental performance and vitality. The woke + focus blend, for example, includes Ginseng, cordyceps, Lion's Mane, Rhodiola, and vitamins B and C, specifically designed to combat morning fog and boost energy levels. I integrate the flavorless powder into my lemon water each morning, feeling an immediate uplift in mental clarity and energy levels that carry me through my work day. 

In the evening, I mix Erba’s glow + flow and calm + clarity blends into my post-workout protein shake for a whole other world of benefits. Glow + flow uses plant-based precursors and Ayurvedic boosters (rather than animal-based collagen) to boost collagen production, while calm + clarity adds magnesium, Ashwagandha, reishi, tulsi, and Schisandra to support a healthy sleep cycle, reduce inflammation, and maintain nervous system balance. This comprehensive approach ensures I'm supporting my body and mind thoroughly, maximizing the benefits of my wellness regimen.
