Today, I’m sharing my healthy ‘wellthy’ gift guide, a roundup of my 15 favourite wellness products that I personally use myself or is on my own wishlist!
Gifting anyone on your list or yourself health and wellness for the coming year is such an amazing way to show them how much you love and appreciate them.
Since wellness can take on so many forms, there’s no shortage of healthy gifts out there so to speak. This year’s TWK gift guide though isn’t just about a wellness trend, it’s about investing in your health and creating a new lifestyle set in healthy habits and the gifts to support it, making it easier for you or your loved ones to put themselves and their health and wellbeing first.
I am sure you have heard many people say ‘make sure to get your 7-8 hours of sleep each night’. The problem is that just doing that isn’t enough! You’re still waking up feeling tired, sluggish and frequently exhausted during the day, your mind is slow and foggy and you are unable to fall asleep at night even though you are exhausted.
Good sleep is not just about the number of hours you sleep but more about making the hours you do sleep a remarkably restful, restorative and rejuvenating sleep – a term called sleep efficiency.
Poor sleep efficiency does not just decrease your energy levels and increase daytime sleepiness and fatigue but also affects your immune system, stress hormones, metabolism, memory and mood. Studies have shown that even partial sleep deprivation has a significant effect on mood. Sleep does not only affect mood, but mood can also affect sleep. Can you relate to a time where you might have been more anxious than usual and found it hard to get to sleep at night?
