Most of us are learning to navigate at-home workouts these days. You can go super minimal with a bodyweight workout, or trick your garage out better than the neighborhood gym. But working out at home also involves finding the drive to push, and the skill to get your form dialed in properly. The Carbon Trainer Smart Mirror aims to solve that gap!
If you’ve already got a collection of protective and comfortable face masks, then you might still want something a little more fashionable for those times when a solid color seems too drab. Some of these are masks that I have bought for myself or family, and some are ones I have saved to purchase later on. I’ve done the research, let’s have a look.
The NeoRhythm Neurostimulation Headband is a wearable device that uses non-invasive technology to improve your sleep, improve your focus, help control pain, help you achieve deep relaxation, aid with meditation, and improve your energy and vitality in as little as two weeks of regular use. That’s a lot for one device to promise, right? But can it possibly deliver?
As you get older, various body parts may stop working as well as they used to, thanks to injuries, joints deteriorating, or in my case — from carrying too much weight. My employer has a benefit that helps me with this, that is called, ironically enough, Hinge Health. Does it help? Let’s find out.
Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. My disease is controlled only with medication at this point, and I am heading in the right direction. However, I decided I needed to take the next step in monitoring my blood glucose levels even though my doctor hasn’t said I need to yet. That’s where Livongo came in, thanks to my employer. Will it help me keep track of what I need to keep my diabetes in control? Let’s find out.
If you’ve read my article about the Oura Air Mask, you know it’s been my everyday mask whenever I leave the house. It’s super comfortable, washable, and protects against all of the elements of COVID-19. And they now have a new color for the mask associated with a fantastic cause.
As someone who runs outside every morning, and also someone in an essential job that required me to go into a facility every day, finding a mask that promotes safety while also being comfortable has been a key. I have plenty of surgical masks and homemade masks, all of which work well in general – but for running I really needed something safe, lightweight, and comfortable. The best thing I have found so far are the masks from HappilyRunning.com, which I wholeheartedly recommend.
A lot is going on in our world today. Regardless of how much we’d like things to go back to how they used to be, at the current moment, it’s best to protect yourself from the Coronavirus with a face mask when you step out of your front door. Why not do it with a reusable mask that’s just as comfortable as it is functional?
No one knows what else 2020 has in store for us (so far, we’ve had a pandemic, murder hornets, and loons with a taste for eagle heart). Working out at home seems safe from all of those, and it’s making the cost to benefits of a system like Tonal a lot more attractive. Bonus — now, Tonal can work with your Apple Watch to keep an eye on your heart rate!
I can’t imagine a world in which I couldn’t read anything put in front of me (assuming it was in a language I understood, of course), but for many people that is a reality. Whether because of dyslexia, illiteracy, moderate vision impairment, reading fatigue, or aphasia, many people can’t do something I take for granted. OrCam Read is here to help.
Feet are incredibly important. That seems obvious, but it’s something people don’t always consider-if your feet have taken a beating, it impacts your knees, hips, and back… Enter Telic Recovery Footwear, designed to keep your feet happy after a long day of activity. We tested the Apres-Ski Recovery Boot, even though it’s been too warm for skiing this winter!
We can all agree that movement is important. Unfortunately, if you have a desk job, it’s hard to keep your blood flowing. You can try a standing desk, which is still static. And most offices frown upon you sticking a treadmill under your desk. Enter Cubii Pro, which is the bottom half of an elliptical for under your desk or workspace.
