We all use the new year to make a lot of resolutions about what we want to change, improve or just mix up when it comes to ourselves and our lives. Many of us have a hard time keeping up with these resolutions, so I’ve got the scoop on 7 products that will assist you in stick with that New Years’ resolution list!
The Ancient Art of Waking Up While Working Well
If your resolution list looks anything like mine, reading more books is on it. I am all about bringing as much positivity into your life as you can. Much of our positive thinking comes from what we put into our minds. “The Ancient Art of Waking Up While Working Well” by Dan Zigmond from Running Press is an amazing book to kick start your year in a positive way. So many people spend their entire lives working and deal with stress from their work environments. Buddha’s windows show readers there is a better way to deal with the stresses in life. This book will set you on the perfect path for a life of achieving mindfulness while achieving your goals with everyday practice. You don’t have to become Buddhist to apply these teachings to your own life. Check out Buddha’s Office to get your year set for what is “right” in every sense of the word: right for you, right for your health, right for your sanity, and right for the world.
AfterShokz headphones are great when you’re working on your fitness. These are open-ear headphones meaning they don’t fall out of my ears when I move around. They allow you to listen to your jams and not have to stop every five seconds to capture swinging headphones. We all know that’s a real buzz killer. The titanium headset rests on your bone and sends music through the bone instead of through the lobe like normal headphones. This makes them sound and fit better than normal headphones. And thankfully your ears won’t ache after wearing them for several hours. For those of you that run or bike outside you can wear these and still be alert to your surroundings. AfterShokz Trekz Air is perfect at work too and they have 8-hour battery life.

The American Youth Sports Pledge from The National Endowment for Youth Sports (NEYS)
If one of your resolutions is to give back this coming year, I’ve got the perfect way for you to do so! The National Endowment for Youth Sports (NEYS) is a United States Congressionally Chartered nonprofit focused on making sports accessible for all youth in America including girls, children with disabilities and children in economically distressed regions of the country.
As a former first grade teacher, I know the importance of youth sports participation. The regular activity with playing sports builds life skills such as leadership, resilience, teamwork and civic engagement. The mission of the NEYS is to raise more than $100 million to provide annual and ongoing grants for permanent and accessible youth sports programs throughout the country. The positive benefits in both health and fitness that young children get from playing sports are huge. However, many Americans, including the nearly 13 million children living in poverty, don’t have the opportunity to participate.
As part of my 2020 Resolutions, I am taking the American Youth Sports Pledge to help NEYS spread the word and hope you will too. I am taking this pledge because I want all children to get the chance to build their self-esteem, enhance their creativity and have an overall better well being through participating in sports. As I mentioned before, the former educator in me loves that those who participate in sports are significantly more likely to graduate from high school and attend college.
Refreshing Face Wash
Having a good skincare routine is one of the most important things you can do to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy. Over the years of caring for my skin, I have learned it takes more than just a face wash. You really need to use a system when washing your face. The Alpha Skin Care Introductory Kit is perfect for those of that want a basic skincare routine that will show your quick results and help you get into a routine for showing off your best skin this year!
Here’s the scoop on the system:
- Refreshing Face Wash – The most basic step in all skincare routines is the face wash. This refreshing soap-free formula uses Citric Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) to gently cleanse and remove make-up, dirt, excess oil, and skin impurities. I love the way it makes your skin feel so clean after using it. Plus, it restores ideal pH balance for the most effective use with Alpha Skin Care products.
- 10% AHA Essential Renewal Lotion – As I mentioned above a face wash is great, but you really need a full system. After washing your face this renewal lotion will do amazing things for your skin. This 10% Glycolic AHA lotion is anti-aging and gently lifts away dull, dead skin cells revealing new, younger-looking skin.
- Essential Facial Moisturizer – There is nothing that makes your skin feel more smooth and fresh than a good moisturizer. Follow-up the cleansing and renewal steps with this unique facial moisturizer. It is specially formulated with the optimal balance of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins B, E and Aloe Vera. It is free of parabens and fragrances.
Using these three products from Alpha Skin Care will help you stick to a routine and keep your resolution of taking better care of yourself and your skin!

Full Spectrum CBD Softgels and CBD Nighttime Gummies
You have probably heard a lot of talk about CBD products and these two from CBDistillery are great for those looking to add CBD into your routine. CBDistillery says they are “more than just a brand with exceptional products and service, CBDistillery™ is on a mission to lead the #CBDMOVEMENT™ by providing the masses easy access to hemp-derived CBD products, widespread education, the latest industry research, and verified consumer testimonials.” CBDistillery utilizes third-party lab tests on each product and make all of their results available so that you always know exactly what is in their products.
Full Spectrum CBD Softgels
If you looking for an easy and convenient way to take CBD daily these soft gels are perfect to pop and go! CBDistilleryTM Full Spectrum Softgels are a perfectly pre-measured serving of 30mg CBD. You can get all the benefits without worrying about mixing, measuring, etc.
CBD Nighttime Gummies
If you are looking for another way to try CBD, the nighttime gummies are also an option. With the 30mg of CBD and 1.5mg of melatonin that you count on and the natural flavors and ingredients that you love, our gummies are gluten-free, allergen-free, vegan, and kosher.
CBD is an adaptogen, and therefore takes time and consistency for full effects to be felt. It is working to bring your body back into natural balance, not to mask any symptoms or problems, but rather to get to the root of your issue. Remember when you buy CBD that every body is different and some bodies adapt much more quickly than others and need continual adjustment of dosage depending on how out of balance you are, what your metabolism is like, what your body composition is, and what you are using the CBD for. Dosage is a personal matter and takes some playing around to find your personal optimal dosage level, but we always recommend starting at around 30mg of CBD.
