Connect: Amazon Echo
At the surface level, the Amazon Echo can be an amazing tool to allow you to consume the audio content of your choice. From your favorite playlist to catching up on a podcast, or tuning-in to a guided meditation, it diffuses sound in space to create an atmosphere catered to you. It can also be used to communicate hands-free within your home to make announcements, or you can take advantage of its outgoing call feature to stay connected to those separated by distance.
Nourish: Breville 3X Bluicer Pro
We’ll take versatility in the kitchen any day. This blender-juicer combo revolutionizes your wellness routine with one tool to blend your daily smoothie, juice your fruits and veggies, or combine the two for a double dose of nutrients. Your choices are endless, allowing you to keep it fun and fresh in the kitchen as you nourish your body from the inside out.
Strengthen: Kettlebell Set
The type of workout equipment you curate is personal to your fitness needs. This kettlebell set is a great place to start if you’re keen on workouts that allow for a range of motion and that engage the larger muscles in the body. This set is versatile in weight so you can select the resistance to suit wherever you are in the moment, but also make it more challenging over time as you get stronger.
Awaken: Daring Greatly by Brené Brown
Brown’s 2012 book, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead, is a New York Times best-seller for a reason, dispelling the societal myths that being vulnerable is a weakness. Rather, she argues, it is a measure of courage. Taking time to showcase the duality in vulnerability, she explains that it is the root for love, joy, and creativity, and at the core of emotions like grief and disappointment. This read awakens a new perception of deep emotions and shifts the way that you relate to the parts of yourselves that are too often shamed.
The Overstory is a work of fiction yet is rooted in environmental activism, a necessary presence in the world today. It follows the story of five trees, each with their own unique experiences with nine Americans, who are brought together in their interconnectedness and forced to address deforestation and the destruction of ecosystems. The book takes the opportunity to anthropomorphize trees, forcing us to recognize the life they contain. It explores the impact that humans and climate change have on Mother Earth and opens readers’ eyes to ways to give back to our earth for the hope of a better future.
