These are a few of my favorite things for smart and ethical holiday purchases this season.
And while this might be a busy, over-commercialized, holiday season that tempts you to buy more shit (and you know how I feel about that!)… but it can also be a time to get minimalistic and focus on what you need that is good for you that can still give you enjoyment.
It’s not about sacrificing everything – it’s about being specific and selective with what has meaning…
Purchasing things that give back to you.
As part of that I wanted to shift from the usual and share with you some of my favorite things. These are products or services I love, that I have personally tried and tested… that I trust. And because I am frequently asked about my health, beauty, fitness, and wellness regimen, I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you here.
Nothing — let me say that again — nothing is more important than great sleep — yet, it tends to be the first thing we sacrifice to be able to squeeze more into our each day. And/or, because of a stress-filled lifestyle — we can’t sleep as well as we would like to. Restorative sleep is crucial for busy people, travellers, or those under stress. Yet getting a good night’s rest oftentimes seems like the most difficult thing to accomplish. To help as a sleep-assist, I use Doc Parsley’s Sleep Remedy most nights — to help me fall asleep faster and enhance my overall night’s sleep so that I can perform and feel better the next day. I highly recommend it to everyone I know. What you get is a nice restful sleep with no groggy side effects and the ability to wake up feeling truly rested and restored.

I am such a fan of Juice Beauty skincare products. It’s what I use to keep my skin looking and feeling great. All their products are vegan, cruelty free, formulated without harmful ingredients like parabens and sulfates, and made from healthy skin care values. I love their products so much — skin care and makeup — I asked the Founder and CEO of Juice Beauty, Karen Behnke, to be on my podcast this month to talk about her vision and inspiration behind her organic value-based brand – so stay tuned for that interview coming up!
My one favorite line from Juice Beauty is: Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Skin Care Line
My favorite haircare line because it’s sulfate free, paraben free, gluten free, paleo, and all other good things. It’s free from all the toxins and endocrine disruptors that regular hair care products are filled with. And it makes my fair feel amazing, strong, and healthy.
I always recommend this as one of my favorites. It’s about narrowing down what really matters in your life and getting rid of the rest. It’s a great time of year to shuffle out what cluttered your mind and your life in 2017 and make way for a new mindset for 2018 — One of abundant health, wealth, and relationships. This book helps take the crazy out of life and challenges you to return to what’s pure and essential. It’s about learning how to focus on the essential few instead of the trivial many. Everyone I’ve recommended this book to has raved about it. It’s one of my top “must-reads”.
Full Body Health/Detox
I own this sauna and use it regularly. And I’m a big fan of the owner, Brain Richards, who I interviewed on my podcast about the benefits of near infrared sauna and light therapy. This is a scientific way to achieve the full-body detoxification and revitalization of near infrared sauna therapy. If you make one bigger purchase for you and your family this season for long term health benefits – this is one you won’t regret.
I’ll share more of my favorite things next week. Until then… join the Facebook group and tell me what your favorites are. Books you recommend, products you love (but not ones you sell as we don’t allow direct sales in the group), your favorite restaurants, local hangouts, workouts or activities. I’m always down to try something new!
