We are in a unique time in our lives, and one that we have never seen before. We’re all dealing with an ever-changing environment that will likely transform our lives forever, and will force us as individuals to grow in new ways. As many of us settle into new at-home rhythms – sending emails from the kitchen table, enjoying happy hours over a screen, creating more opportunities for play inside, baking, cooking, and creating like never before – we’re also getting more creative about our workouts and healthy eating routines.
The good news? No matter what your preferred workout or healthy habits are, having a few fun (and also practical) tools on hand can help you feel more motivated, positive, and accountable to your spring wellness goals.
Read on for eight products that will keep you feeling inspired to stay fit and healthy this spring!
This may shock you but I’ve never owned a smartwatch (unless you count the earliest version of the Fitbit)….until now. I just got my hands on the new Suunto 7 which is a sports and smart watch in one and I’m in love.
Like the Suunto Ambit 3 (my constant running companion for years!), it’s great for accurately tracking my runs and other sports, and it seamlessly connects to my third party apps (hello, Strava!), but it also has the added benefit of allowing me to stay connected, check messages, and track my overall health and well-being via Wear OS by Google. I love that I get credit for all of the hard work and training that I’m doing on my runs, plus the extra credit from all the steps, and physical activity that comes from chasing my busy toddler around, biking, and even practicing yoga! Plus, it gives me stats on my sleep which helps remind me not to stay up so late binging yet another show on Netflix. 😬
Oh and I did mention how cute it is??? I’m obsessed with the sandstone rosegold because it looks great with everything.
Whether you’re running, doing yoga or working out at home, or even cooking, the only way (IMO) to keep your ears happy is by wearing AfterShokz Aeropex headphones. I know I say it a lot and I’ll say it again and again, AfterShokz are essential to an active lifestyle, and the new Aeropex are no exception.
I rely on my AfterShokz Aeropex everyday to keep me tuned in – whether it’s for following along with my at-home workouts streaming from my computer or phone, participating on conference calls, keeping me up to date on all of my favorite podcasts while I run, or even to listen to music while I cook, wash the dishes, or do other chores around the house without disturbing anyone else. They’re the perfect companion for every activity because they’re sweatproof, waterproof, and they allow you to hear what’s going on around you while you also listen to your favorite music or podcast, or even take calls!

If you want your feet to go the distance of your day – whether you’re running or running around – you need a good pair of socks!
The No Nonsense Feel-Good Sport Sock are the perfect activity partner as they provide all day comfort and compression where you need it most.
They provide arch support and gradual compression, and they come in great styles that work with whatever shoes you’re working with.
Well, most shoes anyway (#someshoesshouldnotbewornwithsocks). 😂
With spring comes sunshine and I am here.for.it.
But as my running wardrobe gets stripped down to just a tank and shorts, that also means it’s time to get sunscreen on the brain. We all know it’s important to take care of our skin the same way we do our bodies – which is why I love the LiftActiv Peptide-C Sunscreen (SPF 30) from Vichy. With the LiftActiv dermatologist tested formula, you get so much more than just a sunscreen, you get a moisturizer with SPF and anti-aging agents, too. Plus, it goes on smooth, makes your skin look and feel shiny and bright, and doesn’t leave any weird, sticky residue.
Add greens (and make them fun to eat!).
A sure fire way to get more greens in my family’s diet is to have great sauces and dressings by my side.
My family has been loving the new Healthy Choice Power Dressings to add delicious flavors to our salads and veggie mixes.
We love enjoying the vegetable-powered green goddess dressing on salads, mixed in with our favorite veggies on top of toasts, and even mixed with yogurt to create a fun veggie taco topping.
And we’ve been loving the Italian power dressing as a perfect pairing to any salad and as a wonderful compliment to our homemade sourdough!
Staying on top of health and wellness is easier when you’re prepared. I’ve been keeping these delicious Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies from Nature’s Truth at my desk and taking them after lunch. They have a smooth apple flavor without the vinegar aftertaste, and provide 600mg of apple cider vinegar in one serving.
Another great (and portable) way to stay on top of your health this spring is by incorporating collagen into your diet.
The Simply Collagen by Pink Products provides types 1 & 3 grass-fed, pasture raised pure Collagen Peptides in an unflavored powder that mixes easily into any hot or cold beverage of your choice. Take 20% off All Pink products on Amazon using code 20SHAREPINK.
When trying to keep up with routines (or establish new ones!), it’s always good to have some inspirational reading material.
I’m loving Light up your Life- and your self – the new book from Jolene Hart, author of the Eat Pretty series. It’s a joy-filled guide to beauty, healing, and personal energy that includes beautiful recipes, wellness rituals, and steps for building a better world. It’s just the book we all need right now to feel inspired, energized, and motivated to keep growing (and glowing!).
