For 2020, my word is – enjoy. I worked so hard and I want to now enjoy where I’m at, what I’ve accomplished and to remind myself that’s where I currently am in life. This also means, enjoy slowing down so I can focus on other things – my home, garden, wellness, and learn some new skills.
I have been meaning to get better with educating myself on wellness, a typical resolution many of us have, but when life gets busy with work, health on so many levels takes a back seat – which it shouldn’t. If you’re working on your resolutions list, I say start small and maybe pick a word, then slowly educate yourself. Sometimes I think we put pressure on ourselves to be 100% in and that’s not possible when you’re still learning and have to get into the habit!
Babbleboxx rounded up some products to help accomplish nearly every resolution that might be on your list – skin health, mental health and productivity, mental alertness, energy, even motivation to work out. Let’s open the box and discover the products and see what might be the ideal fit to help you accomplish your goals in the new year. This is not a subscription box but rather a box with a theme that I’m able to share with you and you can purchase the products individually. Links and discount codes will be repeated at the end of the blog post.
If fitness is on your goal, check out AfterShokz open-ear headphones, using bone conduction technology to transmit sound. This is unlike other headphones – the lightweight headphones go outside your ear so you can still hear nature, and cars go by, I think this is good for safety and enjoy the outdoor nature – I love hearing birds, wind, my steps, AND you can listen to music for 8-hours.
Comes in a variety of colors, use discount code: RESET50 for $50 off an Endurance Aeropex bundle. Valid: 1/6/2020 – 3/6/2020

Relax and Unwind
I’ve never tried CBD products before but I’ve had friends mentioned them and the positive effects. Dosage is a personal matter and takes some playing around to find your personal optimal dosage level, and CBDistillery recommends starting at around 30mg of CBD. The Full Spectrum CBD Softgels have 30mg CBD.
Benjamin has taken melatonin after it was suggested with his inability to sleep but I’m have been sharing these CBD Nighttime Gummies have 30 mg of CBD and 1.5mg of melatonin. I have been using them to break my bad habit of late-night binge watching. Go to bed Diana!

Support a nonprofit
Were you in sports as a child? I started in high school, dance team, and having an extra curricular activity helped me manage my time and my grades improved with time management. The National Endowment for Youth Sports (NEYS) is a United States Congressionally Chartered nonprofit focused on making sports accessible for all youth in America. Kids are significantly more likely to graduate from high school and attend college and regular activity in spores can help with leadership, resilience, teamwork, all important life skills. They asked me to sign a pledge to support this foundation for youth sports and bring awareness to help them further their goal of raising $100 million to provide youth sports programs children in economically distressed regions of the country, girls, and children with disabilities. I know extra curricular activities like sports had a positive impact on my grades and I used the life skills though college.
Mental Clarity + Energy
If you need some energy this year to accomplish your goals, Nutiva Organic MCT Oil is made from organic coconuts and provides energy, supports the metabolism and MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) provide clean energy, boost metabolism and enhance mental clarity. You can blend it in smoothies and coffees.
Nutiva Organic MCT Powder is the creamy alternative to the MCT oil, it has protein giving the brain, muscles and other tissues fast and sustained energy and because it’s creamy, you can stir into coffee, tea, smoothies and shakes for a boost any time of day. I have been adding a scoop of the powder with my collagen powder to my coffee I don’t taste a thing! I showed my best friend who was over this morning what I’ve been using and she was like yeah, that’s really good!

I don’t know much about Buddha, but if you have been struggling with tiredness and exhaustion in the work place or in life in general, you are not alone – I know many, myself included.

When I get nausea it’s bad, like really bad so when it hits, I panic. Stomach Settle Drops from UpSpring can relieve nausea including pregnancy nausea relief, gas, bloating, and motion sickness relief and beyond.
