Social distancing, self-quarantine, lockdown, isolation, quarantine…whatever you want to call it, we are all experiencing some level of isolation from society.

We aren’t sure yet if we need to prepare for swimsuit season but don’t let COVID-19 ruin your health & exercise goals.

We might have a roommate, significant other, or family we are spending this time with. Some of us are irritated, stressed, and bored, sometimes taking this frustration out on the people we are closest to.

Maintaining mental health is important (you can read about that here) but it is also important to maintain physical health and wellness. Basically, every gym or yoga studio is closed down, as well as spa and beauty salons.

Exercise is a very important part of some people’s lives. And of course, getting hair, nails, and waxing done. These places are all closed. WTF…who could have predicted this situation we are in?!

At home, it can really take extra motivation to get up off the couch, put on some workout clothes, and do an at-home workout. There is no one there to keep you accountable and sometimes you might just want to give up.

We have created a perfectly curated trendy selection of the best health and wellness products to help us feel better during this time!

1. Goop Wellness: Knock Me Out

Times are stressful. During stressful periods, it is impossible for some to fall asleep without a sleep aid. Some are tired all day and then when they lay down for bed their mind starts racing. What if this, what if that, how come this, why did I say that?

These Knock Me Out gummy supplements are formulated with melatonin, L-tryptophan, and vitamin B. Melatonin is a hormone that regulates your body’s sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin tells your body, “Hey relax. It’s time to settle down for bed.” These supplements come in handy during this unknown, fearful time.
