Wellness and self-care are everything right now, especially as we navigate through COVID-times while trying to keep our mind, body, and spirit in a good place. Over the past month we’ve featured a variety of people and products. Here are a few of our editors’ picks — what we’ve discovered, loved, and wanted to share. Whether you’re looking to reset, relax, stay on track, or just looking to add a few extra antioxidants, here are a few items that we recommend.
Beauty & The Broth
Beauty & The Broth provides carefully crafted bone broth that is eight times more potent than your average broth. It is slowly-simmered and reduced to remove most of the water. The kits of USDA organic collagen-rich broth are made to be gut-healthy, convenient, and customizable — promoting glowing skin, stronger nails, and shinier hair. The kits also come with a BPA-free rice husk cup. Visit the site for more info.

Courtney Seard, a performance coach and leadership trainer, has created THE RISE:VISION|ACTION|PLANNER, a planner that consists of a vision journal — backed by neuroscience and psychology research — to help create a more meaningful day, and an action planner, used to keep you motivated to accomplish your goals. According to Seard, “We are 50 percent more likely to accomplish what we’ve set out to do, if it’s written down,” making the planner a great tool for setting those 2021 intentions.
