If your home has issues with dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, or dust mites, you need an air purifier. And while there are plenty of them on the market, I think you should check out the Shark Air Purifier 6.
During the pandemic, I let myself go a little bit. With gyms closed, bikes on backorder, and a newborn, I found it very hard to do something as simple as exercise. But recently, I’ve been introduced to the WHOOP 3.0 Strap, and I feel like I’m finally getting this health thing right.
For the past few weeks, while training for a half marathon, I have used THC Living Freeze Cold Therapy Roll-On Nano 1:3 (100 mg THC:300 mg CBD) to aid with recovery and help keep muscular fatigue and soreness at bay. It is only available for sale in California, but if you live there, you’ll want to read on.
At my age—and no, I am absolutely not going to tell you how friggin’ old I am—acidic stomach issues are definitely something I have to keep in mind. But even if you’re a youngun’ like my daughter and you drink enough coffee, sometimes the very acidity of the brew can catch up with you sometimes. That’s what Trücup low-acid coffee wants to help alleviate.
Having a good desk chair was key to surviving months of working from home during the pandemic. Raina and I both use comfortable, ergonomic chairs that have served us well. The NEXVOO NEXCHAIR has a similar design to my current chair, but there’s one big difference. As the company puts it, NEXCHAIR is “the world’s first health monitoring chair.”
A Strava subscription has been a great way to keep me motivated during my journey of getting back in shape. 2020 was rough; I was working out regularly but wasn’t eating well. Unfortunately, it’s true that you can’t outrun a terrible diet. So paired with a proper eating regimen, Strava’s been my go-to tracking app for getting to a better me.
The initial thought of a portable blender was, why? Then all of the possibilities came flooding in. Mix up a shake for the gym, breakfast on the go, or even some nice margaritas at the pool or the beach. The BlendJet 2 Portable Blender is a powerful, rechargeable option that will bring the freedom to blend shakes and drinks anytime and anywhere.
For those that suffer from allergies, whether dust, pollen, pet hair, or just want to eliminate pet, food, or smoke odors, the Scosche FrescheAir purifier has come to the rescue. The filter collects 99.5% of small particles with a two-speed fan and touchless operation. The filter is designed to fit in your vehicle’s cup holder or set up easily on a desk.
Unless you live off the grid, it’s hard to escape technology. It’s become a way to do just about everything, and health and fitness are no exceptions. But, unfortunately, certain tech aspects, like screen time and blue light exposure, are not considered good for you. So when some people think of technology, they might picture something that promotes sitting still or lying on the couch. But the truth is technology can do more than entertain with video games and binge-able content. Apps, devices, virtual reality, and advances in healthcare delivery can identify problems, help you make changes, and keep you…
I am a big advocate for stretching, massage, and recovery as part of a good workout plan. I’ve tried regular foam rollers, vibrating foam rollers, heated foam rollers, and a few massage guns in the past. But the MyoSotrm Meteor 2.1 is definitely rolling in with an interesting twist in a very crowded market!
In a lot of ways, I came of age in a weird in-between generation. I’m on the cusp of the Generation X to Millennial transition. And as a child of the ’80s, I’m part of the generation of LGBT folks who grew up aware that AIDS was a scary pandemic, but after the age where we would have seen the worst of the horrors firsthand. But we all grew up being warned about it, and I knew many people who started taking PrEP as soon as they could afford it.
We reviewed a massage gun; then, we reviewed a heated foam roller. Now, we’re reviewing a fusion of both, the SKG F5 Massage Gun with heat! It’s a massage gun with a heater on one end, so you can pummel your muscles into submission, then apologize to them with a little warmth!
Recovery is a key part of getting in shape. It’s when your body is resting that your muscles rebuild stronger than before. That’s why massaging and foam rolling are so important, but ever try to lug a foam roller on a trip? They’re a little bulky for travel. The Vertiball Precision Massager is a portable way to massage sore muscles without taking up space in your suitcase that you needed for clean shirts! Do you need one? Read on to learn more!
Ask any personal trainer, and they’ll tell you the best item you can have in your home for recovery is a foam roller. There might be (there will be) moments where you’re cursing the demons who forged such a torturous item, but foam rolling is a big part of keeping your body healthy and happy after a hard workout. They can be as simple as a cylinder of foam, or they can be studded with textures to dig into each knot. The new MedRock HotRock Foam Roller brings the heat to the foam rolling experience!
Anyone who exercises regularly knows that recovery is a key part of improving. You can’t push forever; sometimes, your body needs to heal. Massages are great, but between covid and the cost, most people aren’t opting for weekly in-person massages, and massage chairs are a luxury suited for the Brookstone in your local mall, not necessarily your living room. Enter the Fishda Double Heads Massage Gun, which offers a way to pummel your muscles into submission without also destroying your wallet or disrupting your home decor!
Since the pandemic began, people have been spending most of their time at home, both for work and school. With so much attention on air quality in offices and schools, many people have overlooked the air quality in the home, until now. This summer, the Airthings View Plus will be available for comprehensive, advanced in-home air quality monitoring.
We love Neuro products here at Gear Diary. Their mint and cinnamon flavored gums, as well as their mint and cinnamon flavored mints, are delicious, and we could never have survived CES 2020 without several packs of Neuro Gum! Anytime I’ve sung their praises, I’ve had to steer potential buyers towards Amazon, CVS, or the Neuro website, but Neuro sent us some amazing news today — you’ll be able to get Neuro Mints and Gum at Whole Foods!
I’m always looking for functional and stylish accessories to help me stay organized, and when it comes to green medicine use, this is no exception. As recreational and medicinal cannabis options become more mainstream, so do the network of accessories and accouterments to use alongside one’s favorite recreational or medicinal vice…and I am here for it.
Even after we’re past the initial public health crisis of Covid-19, it’s likely many of the lessons regarding sanitizing and being aware of how germ-filled our world truly is. Smart Sanitizer Wellness Center is a new concept being introduced at CES, but it wouldn’t shock me if we see them all over the place very soon!
Like many people, I suffer from seasonal allergies. Apparently, I’m allergic to trees, which is unfortunate since they’re everywhere and kind of key to a healthy ecosystem. Luckily, companies are working on alternatives to popping copious amounts of Zyrtec. Fluo Labs Flo has a particularly intriguing concept, where they use handheld light therapy to reduce nasal inflammation caused by Allergic Rhinitis.
During the course of the pandemic, I’ve collected my fair share of masks in a variety of colors. Some have been good, and some have been bad, but none were quite like the Refresh Mask N95 Personal Purification System. A self-proclaimed ‘Intelligent Personal Air Purifier’ that leads me to ask the question — Why?
