After a bumpy two years, this year we should prioritise health and wellbeing above all else. When we’re looking after our body and mind, everything is just that much easier to deal with.
And that’s important when our lives are changing so much. If you’re focusing on your mental health and wellbeing this year, we’ve got some great ideas on how to take control of your total body health.
Feel good on the outside
There’s a lot that goes into health and wellbeing and some of it is how we feel about our appearance. From anti-cellulite devices to intimate health or fitness and rehab, there are many devices out there to help improve your physical body. We’ve selected a few of our favourites below:
If you’re one of the 90% of women with cellulite or anyone over the age of 40 with skin that’s starting to loosen, you might be thinking the knife is your only answer. But, with the NuBODY, in just 5 minutes, tone sagging and uneven skin including cellulite and dimples.
This clever device uses really small electrical pulses to even out your skin tone and increase firmness. And 92% of users reported an improved skin tone with 72% seeing more even skin overall.
If you want smoother and firmer-looking skin, you only need to use it 5 minutes a day, 5 times a week per treatment area. You’ll see a noticeable difference in just 60 days and then you just need a top-up a couple of times a week to maintain these results.
It’s so easy to overlook recovery. You’ve done the workout and think, that’s it. I’ve done all I needed to for my health. But, according to VeryWellFit, “Active recovery improves blood circulation that helps with the removal of waste products from muscle breakdown that build up as a result of exercise.
Then fresh blood can come in to bring nutrients that help repair and rebuild the muscles.” You need that process to happen and the faster it does, the more you’ll get from your workouts. That’s where the Therabody comes in.
It uses percussive tapping to speed up muscle recovery, relieve tension and provide pain relief. And it goes 60% deeper than other massagers for a gentle and effective post-workout massage session.
Sometimes we need to work out more than our visible muscles. According to WebMD, “About 25% to 45% of women suffer from urinary incontinence, defined as leakage at least once in the past year.
The rates of urinary incontinence increase with age: 20%-30% of young women, 30%-40% of middle-aged women, and up to 50% of older women suffer from urinary incontinence.” And that can lead to unsightly accidents or bulky protective underwear that make us feel frumpy.
So, to address the root cause, many women are looking to pelvic floor trainers like the Elvie. It helps you know if you’re working the muscle right, improves your bladder control and can even make sex better for you.
Feel good on the inside
It’s not enough to look good on the outside, we need to care for our intimate health, sleep and mental health too. Stress is a silent killer and it’s affecting most of us. According to MentalHealth.org, “74% of UK adults have felt so stressed at some point over the last year they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. 81% of women said this compared to 67 percent of men.” So, we’ve curated a few mental health and wellbeing devices to encourage you to get better sleep and relieve tension each day.
An easy, passive way to eliminate back pain, sleep better and de-stress is with this acupressure mat. It helps you to remove toxins and top up your feel-good chemicals. You just need to lay on it for 20 minutes a day. You can do it fully clothed, on the couch or on your bed.
Or, if you really need serious de-stressing, try it with bare skin. It doesn’t hurt and there are no needles like acupuncture, but it’s based on the same principles. With daily use, you will start to feel better in just 3 weeks.
Ann from the UK writes, “Resolves my husband’s back pain after twenty minutes [of] daily use, better than any prescription painkillers have ever done, and without side effects. Brilliant.” Combine it with their accupressure pillow to relieve neck pain and tension as well.
We’re not sleeping well. According to Aviva, “As many as 16 million UK adults* are suffering from sleepless nights as a third (31%) say they have insomnia. Two thirds (67%) of UK adults suffer from disrupted sleep and nearly a quarter (23%) manage no more than five hours a night.”
But you don’t have to be a statistic. With the world’s first, anti-ageing sleep mask, get rid of wrinkles, tension and block out ambient light for better sleep all at the same time. It’s clinically proven to minimise your frown lines all while boosting your emotional relaxation by 67% for better sleep.
It’s soft and silky and you’ll enjoy wearing it too. And you can trust it works. It’s designed by London’s top non-surgical aesthetic doctor- Dr. Steve Harris MB BCh MSc MBCAM.
