5 Wellness Tools I Recommend Most Often.
As a personal trainer, I am always making recommendations for exercise equipment and self care tools. Here are 5 tools I recommend most often to support wellness.
1. THERACANE MASSAGER
The theracane is my go-to tool when my neck and shoulders are feeling achy. This handy self-massager is designed to help you target hard-to-reach areas all over your body. I keep one at home and in the car. There are similar items on the market but I have had the best results with Theracane. Read how I use my theracane.
2. MANDUKA PRO YOGA MAT
The Manduka yoga mat is the only mat I use at home. This yoga mat works well on a carpet or wood floor, it’s firm and it won’t slide beneath you while you are using it. The mat is environmentally friendly which is pretty cool. I have been using the Manduka yoga mat for 4 years almost daily and the surface feels better than it did the day I got it. I would recommend this mat to anyone for at home use. You will see me using my Manduka mat throughout my exercise membership videos.
3. SQUATTY POTTY
The squatty potty was a gift from my mom at the request of my husband. The squatty potty is a family favorite. It supports healthy posture while pooping and promotes deeper elimination. Sounds gross, feels great. You can read more about the science behind the squatty potty in this TIME article.
4. LACROSSE BALL
The lacrosse ball is a cost effective tool for massaging sore spots all over your body. I use a lacrosse ball on my feet, thighs, hips, back, and shoulders to relieve muscle tension. Learn more about how I use the lacrosse ball for self myofascial release.
5. FOOT AND LOWER LEG BATH
I love soaking my feet and suggest you try it. Soaking your feet in warm water after a long day can promote relaxation throughout your body. Be patient to get the perfect temperature for your footsies.
