5 Ways to Care for Your Mental Health

From the day you’re born, you’re taught to care for your physical health. You go to the doctor for routine check-ups, you eat nutritious food, and you exercise your body. But rarely (if ever) do people talk about your mental health. What could you be doing to care for your emotional, psychological, and social well-being?

Your mental health impacts the way you feel, think, act, make choices, and relate to others. Often, people notice their mental health when they begin to experience mental illness. Yet, this shouldn’t be the time when we talk about mental health the most. Mental health must be an ongoing conversation. Here are 7 ways you can care for your mental health.


  1. Take care of your body

Yes, sometimes your mental health starts with your physical health! Research has shown that people who exercise regularly have better mental health and emotional well-being. When you exercise, sleep well, and eat right, you flood your body with positive vitamins and chemicals that boost your mood. Here are some steps you can take in daily life to make sure your body feels good.


  • Exercise regularly — 30 minutes or more of exercise a day for 3-5 days a week can significantly improve depression or anxiety symptoms
  • Eat nutritious meals — a healthy diet means fewer mood fluctuations, a happier outlook on life, and an improved ability to focus
  • Drink plenty of water — drinking more water lowers your risk of anxiety and depression
  • Avoid smoking or vaping­ — smoking worsens symptoms of depression and anxiety
  • Get enough sleep — poor sleep can activate anxiety in high-risk individuals and poor sleep can result because of anxiety


Caring for your body physically is a critical component of mental health. If you’re struggling to keep your life together, remember that fueling your body, exercising regularly, and sleeping on a normal schedule can help you feel better in all aspects.


  1. Surround yourself with your people

You can boost your mental health by simply having a strong support system. If you feel your mood dipping, make social plans with friends or family members. Here are a few simple ways to do this if you’re feeling some social anxiety.

  • Plan on a coffee date
  • Get your nails done
  • Go for a bike ride or hike
  • See a movie
  • Visit the park or beach
  • Enjoy a picnic
  • Bake together
  • Eat at a restaurant
  • Volunteer together
  • Attend a concert

It can be nerve-wracking to ask someone to do something, especially for the first time. Once you break through that barrier, however, it only gets easier.


  1. Volunteer your time and energy

Sometimes we’re so consumed by our own lives that we forget how many people we can help. Volunteering can help reduce stress and increase positive, relaxed feelings by releasing dopamine. You’re likely to walk away from your time serving others with a sense of meaning and appreciation. You’ve given to others and received a sense of satisfaction in doing so.


  1. Learn healthy coping mechanisms

A coping mechanism is a strategy that people use in the face of stress and/or trauma to help manage painful or difficult emotions. Often, we aren’t taught healthy coping mechanisms that allow us to deal with stress or anxiety. Instead, we adopt destructive coping mechanisms where the behavior doesn’t resolve the problem in the long term and instead increases the harm.

Instead, you’ll want to learn healthy coping mechanisms that lead to the problem being resolved or dealt with in a way that reduces harm or stress. Some healthy coping mechanisms include:

  • Going for a walk
  • Mindfulness relaxation and meditation
  • Eating healthy snacks instead of junk food
  • Reaching out and talking about worries with a friend or family member
  • Taking downtime for yourself
  • Discussing problems with a professional
  1. Avoid alcohol and other drugs

Above, we discussed health coping mechanisms. Unfortunately, alcohol and drugs are often unhealthy coping mechanisms that people turn to when they want to self-medicate. These are widely available substances that can help people temporarily forget problems or help them feel an escape.

You may find, however, that the more you drink or use drugs that the worse your problems become. Drinking or using won’t address the root issue of what you feel or alleviate poor mental health symptoms.


Final Thoughts

Each one of us has mental health. Your mental health isn’t the absence of mental illness. It’s something you should cultivate daily through self-care. In difficult times, use the list above to care for your mental health, understand what triggers symptoms, and use positive coping techniques for the best results.

Adventure by Subscription – Fun Kids Activities

After two years of being essentially isolated at home, we are very excited to get back out in the world. But not everything has returned to normal yet, so I am still looking for things to keep my kids occupied at home. They love watching Netflix or Amazon Prime, or playing the games on the PBS Kids app, but they get incredibly frustrated when something doesn’t work, and even more obstreperous once the screen time is over. The apps their schools set them up with during the pandemic are ok, but can be challenging at times and really benefit from parental supervision, something I can’t always provide in the middle of a Zoom call for work.

So exploring other options has been a great necessity. We tried YouTube, and joined in on the early popularity of Cosmic Kids, the yoga program. The girls love this show, and will watch back-to-back episodes, sometimes doing the moves but more often just watching. Its not exactly interactive, but it was our “gym class” for a few months! We watched through our television, which is harder for the kids to fiddle with, so I didn’t have too many worries about them wandering off into the wilds of YouTube, something that is always in the back of my mind.

Craft kits are a big hit with the kids, but often the instructions are a little to complicated, or the techniques a little too fiddly, so I end up having to help at every stage or even end up doing the whole craft myself. I was a bit too optimistic at Christmas last year, and bought them each an advent calendar of crafts – I ended up having to do all of the work, TWICE, and we gave up after eight days. What I’m looking for is something that is fun and enriching, without requiring all of my attention.

The Supernow Adventure Club looks to be just the ticket! We got our box last week, and opened it up today. I got only one box for both kids, which may have been a mistake, but we will learn how to share as we go along. So far all we have done is watch the first introductory video, with more to come each week, as three live or recorded classes per week become available.

Week 0 – The UnBoxing

The box itself is really cute, and my husband wisely hid it upon arrival. As soon as they spied it they started asking when they could open it. Inside is are several envelopes with the dates of when to open them, all in this month. Its going to be hard to wait for the next activity! The website is very easy to navigate, and the dates and times for the classes are clearly laid out. We are on the East Coast, so it is easy to make time for the live classes. Even if you miss them, though, they will be recorded for subsequent watching. We are especially excited to meet some other kids next Saturday in the one class per week that lets the club members interact with each other.

Stay tuned for more, this space will be updated as the Adventure Club unfolds!

Direct to Consumer Brand Reviews

Brand Rated

Almost all consumers, 97% to be exact, use online media to research products or services. If you’ve ever read a product review on a website, you fall into the above category.

While customer reviews can help you learn more about a brand or product – fake and paid-for reviews are unfortunately a lot more common than you’d think. 67% of consumers say they are concerned about review fraud, but most people cannot spot inauthentic reviews. That’s where Brand Rated comes in.

At Brand Rated, we review popular direct-to-consumer brands to help you make smarter buying decisions. If you’re unsure where to find legit reviews, we’ve got you covered.


Why D2C Brand Reviews Important

Direct to consumer brands are everywhere, but how do you know which are legit? Also, if you’re unfamiliar with the Direct-to-Consumer movement, D2C brands are digital-first brands that sell common items online that you used to purchase at a physical store or from a third-party wholesaler. In other words, when you buy from a D2C brand, the company you are buying from is responsible for manufacturing and shipping you the item rather than a vendor, retailer, or reseller. D2C products can range from food, shoes, makeup, and just about everything in between.

When it comes to D2C brands (and B2C) brands, fake, biased, or paid-for reviews will always be a concern. Anyone with an email address can leave a review for many online retailers. If you’re wondering about those “verified” reviews you will often see on websites, well, those can also be questionable.

Brands will often have buyers purchase an item from their site and reimburse them through a third-party payment option. So while the customer bought the item with their own money, making them a “verified” purchase, their review can be swayed by the brand that paid them back for the item they purchased.

Brand Rated is committed to making online shopping safer, easier, and more reliable. Read on to learn more.


Brand Rated Reviews Vs. Customer Reviews

Customer reviews are what you see on a website explaining what they liked or disliked about a product. Customer reviews are nothing new. But we are entering a new era of online fraud. It’s getting easier for companies to pay users to leave positive reviews on products or services. The ‘reviewer often doesn’t even see, test, or use the item.

Brand Rated is committed to offering online shoppers honest, reliable brand reviews. We’re here to help ensure you’re spending your hard-earned cash on brands and products that are worth it.


Reviews You Can Trust At Brand Rated

So, what are the best D2C brands? Visit Brand Rated for 100% authentic, unbiased reviews. We’re committed to keeping it real with our community members, from makeup and fashion brands to food & drink reviews and so much more. So, be sure to check back often. We’re always adding new brands and products to our list of D2C reviews.

Happy shopping!

Top Myths About Hair Loss

Hair loss affects approximately one-third of the population, which means a significant amount of men struggle with receding hairlines and excess shedding. Because so many people are dealing with hair loss, it also means a lot of people are talking about it. Unfortunately, there are many myths about hair loss that aren’t accurate. Here are some of the top myths that we can blame the internet for before we get to the truth.


The Sun Can Cause Hair Loss


Many men make the mistake of trying to stay out of the sun because they assume UV rays are bad for their hair. Fortunately, excessive sun exposure doesn’t have much of an effect on your hair follicles, which means you don’t have to try and sit in the shade the next time you spend time outdoors. 


Hair Loss Treatments Don’t Work


Infomercials selling hair loss products have given hair loss treatments a bad rap in past years and have prompted many people to believe there’s no hope the moment they begin to experience excess shedding. Fortunately, hair loss products have become more advanced in recent years, making it easier to find solutions to maintain a full head of hair as you get older. Some of the key ingredients to look for include Minoxidil, collagen, and biotin.


Hair thickening shampoo can also reverse the effects of hair thinning and stop it in its tracks. The products promote volume and remove build-up present in the hair and on the scalp to ensure the hair can grow back thicker and healthier. Look for products that target DHT and eliminate it to prevent the problem from returning.


Only Older Men Suffer from Hair Loss


It’s a common assumption that only older men in their 70s experience hair loss, but the problem can begin at an early age for some people. Those who have a family history of hair loss can begin to notice their hair thinning or their hairline receding in their 20s or 30s. One-quarter of men even start to bald before the age of 21. The progression of hair loss can be slow at times, which can cause many men to fail to notice it until it becomes more severe.


It’s also a problem for women, especially after they deliver a baby and have a change in hormones. Excessive shedding typically occurs a few months after giving birth and can continue for several months. Although men tend to have hair loss near their hairline, women lose their hair across their entire head and have a lot of thinning that is present. 


Men Who are Bald Have Increased Testosterone Levels


It can be easy to make the mistake of linking bald men to having a lot more testosterone. Some people assume men who have hair loss also have a stronger sex drive. Research shows that the testosterone levels of men who are bald are actually the same as men with full heads of hair, which debunks this claim.


Washing Your Hair Leads to Hair Loss


Too many people go too long in-between washing their hair out of fear that they’ll pull out more strands as they get clean. This is one of the most common myths because hair is prone to coming out in the shower when you rinse it. This is not due to the shampoo but because the hair has already been shed and is sitting loose on your scalp. The hair can go dormant and fail to grow, which is why you’re noticing more strands fall out.


Your Stress is Causing Your Hair to Fall Out


When you’re already stressed, it can be stressful to think your anxiety is causing all of your hair to fall out. Although there is a bit of truth to this myth, normal stress won’t cause you to go bald. Severe stress caused by trauma can typically lead to hair loss, especially if there was a death in your family or experienced a tragedy. Long-term suffering or illness can also trigger you to lose your hair. 


Getting stuck in traffic on your way to work or trying to manage your kids each day won’t make you experience additional hair loss. You can relax and feel at ease knowing it will take a lot more trauma to have a change in your hair growth.


If you happen to go through a challenging time in life, like a chronic illness or job loss, the hair loss is typically only temporary. You can expect it to begin to regrow after a few months.


Hair Loss is Permanent


This leads us to our last myth: hair loss is permanent. You can let out a sigh of relief knowing hair loss is not always permanent, and there are many treatment methods available to restore hair growth. The only time it’s permanent is if it’s a genetic condition. Otherwise, eating disorders, nutrient deficiencies, and hormonal changes can also be resolved to ensure you get your full hair of head back.


With accurate knowledge, it can be easier to understand the cause of your hair loss and the best ways to treat it. You no longer have to skip washing your hair or fail to try different treatment products due to common myths you’ve heard in the past.

A Guide to Timeshare Cancellation

Timeshares make up a billion-dollar industry in the United States, with thousands of resorts and hundreds of thousands of units available within those resorts. Investing in a timeshare is unlike other types of property ownership. Because of this, if you’re thinking of a timeshare investment, you should be careful throughout the process and be sure it’s right for your needs. Otherwise, you might end up needing to cancel your timeshare. This is because a timeshare isn’t really a real estate investment; instead, it should be thought of as an investment in future vacations. 


There are plenty of great things about investing in a timeshare. Individuals get the chance to enjoy ownership of a great property in a beautiful location at a fraction of the cost. Additionally, individuals do not have to keep up with the maintenance of the property themselves, though they will typically have to pay a small maintenance fee annually. Those who invest in a timeshare will get a certain amount of time per year to enjoy their property. However, this is where many difficulties can arise. 


Often, people do not learn until after investing in a timeshare how difficult it is to use their allotted time. Many people believe making the arrangements is a simple matter and often feel lied to when booking their own timeshare is difficult. Timeshares have even been known to get people in the door to their presentations through bait and switch operations, with promises of discounted tickets to special events or free meals among other offers. Overall, many individuals who end up purchasing a timeshare come out of the process feeling they have been pressured into making their investment. Presenters make timeshares sound like an incredible deal, but investing in one can truly be a life-altering decision, especially with how expensive a timeshare investment can be. 


While a timeshare can be useful for many people, it is most certainly not for everyone. This is why it is important for those who do end up investing in a timeshare to know the best way to cancel. Fortunately, there are ways to cancel your timeshare. The process of canceling a timeshare may be slightly different for everyone, but understanding the various steps you can take will allow you to get everything done much more efficiently and effectively. Here’s what you can do if you need to cancel your timeshare, no matter what kind of situation you find yourself in. 


DIY Timeshare Cancellation


When you set out to cancel your timeshare, you may attempt to do it on your own. While people can cancel their timeshares effectively without outside help, it can be an especially challenging process, especially if you don’t have any experience working with timeshare companies and do not know the ins and outs of the timeshare industry. 


Among the many things to note is how much persistence it can take to cancel your timeshare if you attempt to do it on your own. Fortunately, a period of a few days exists after you initially sign up. This is called the rescission period and usually lasts for 3 to 5 days after signing your contract. If you’ve begun to realize you’ve made a mistake after that big presentation, you can read the contract carefully and get in touch with the company. However, it should be noted that companies typically make it a challenge to contact them so you can actually cancel your timeshare.


Canceling a timeshare after that rescission period can take upwards of two years or even more, and many people still find themselves taking “no” for an answer and walking away even after several attempts to cancel. You must realize when you set out to cancel your timeshare these businesses will do everything they can to keep from losing customers. For example, they may outright tell you there is no way for you to cancel your timeshare. However, this is simply not true. There are always ways to cancel your timeshare. 


Additionally, even after it seems you have found a way to cancel your timeshare and begin the process of negotiating a cancellation, timeshares often have last-minute bait and switch tactics in which they attempt to draw customers back in. It’s unfortunate, but many individuals fall for these tactics and find themselves in even worse financial situations than before. It’s vital to remember not to take anything a company says as true until you have it in writing. 


While some individuals can cancel their timeshares on their own, this is not recommended for most people, and if you’re trying to cancel your timeshare, it might be best for you to find someone who can help. This is especially true if you’re trying to cancel your timeshare quickly and efficiently.


Hiring a Lawyer to Cancel Your Timeshare


The next logical step for many individuals looking to cancel a timeshare is getting someone with legal experience to help them in the process. For many, this means hiring a lawyer to help them. However, there are many things to remember if you’re thinking about hiring a lawyer to help you cancel your timeshare. One of the most important things to consider if thinking about hiring a lawyer is that not all lawyers are well-versed in this type of law. While many lawyers may offer their services and say they can help you cancel your timeshare, if they do not have extensive experience in timeshare cancellation, they will be much less likely to help you through the process. 


Another of the major issues you face when working with a lawyer, especially a lawyer without a tremendous amount of experience working with timeshares, is they may not be aware of the many trends occurring within the timeshare industry. The timeshare industry is regularly changing. Knowing the changes taking place and understanding trends in the industry can often be vital to your success when you set out to cancel your timeshare or make any other changes to your contract. 


Selling or Renting Your Timeshare


Individuals who find themselves unable to cancel their timeshare may consider selling or renting their timeshare as an alternative solution. This is possible, but it can still be an incredibly challenging prospect. One of the first things to think about is how much effort it takes companies to get individuals to purchase a timeshare in the first place. The presentations used to get people to show up are large affairs, and presenters use many pressure and sales tactics to make sales happen. Selling or renting a timeshare typically ends up being a lot of work, and the dates are generally still difficult to determine, which only makes things more challenging for everyone involved. 


Other people may consider attempting to sell their timeshare through the company itself, as some timeshare companies offer this option. However, individuals should never really expect their timeshare to sell if they are going this route. This is often a tactic timeshare companies use, saying they will list a timeshare for sale only to have it sit there while they continue to collect money from you. 


Finally, remember if you are attempting to sell or rent a timeshare, there can be numerous legal issues involved if you are selling or renting to a third party. While this is not always the case, it is a possibility and can lead to complications. Always pay attention to what’s in your contract and be prepared for any issues if this is the route you’re taking. 


Walking Away From Your Timeshare


In the process of trying to cancel your timeshare, you may find everything so overwhelming you simply end up walking away. This means you simply stop making payments and leave the situation entirely. This is obviously not an ideal scenario. There can be numerous potential repercussions if you end up walking away from a timeshare, no matter how much paying for a timeshare affects you currently. 


Among the biggest problems with walking away from a timeshare is the multitude of financial issues following this decision. Think about walking away from a timeshare like walking away from a mortgage. When you do so, you could be subjected to foreclosure proceedings. You may also take a significant hit to your credit and potentially find yourself subject to years of harassment from debt collectors seeking repayment for the money owed to the timeshare company. 


Though it can be a difficult and stressful process to cancel your timeshare, the ramifications can be much more difficult and stressful and can lead to numerous challenges. Because of this, walking away from a timeshare is never ideal, and individuals are urged to find a solution able to meet their needs. In many cases, working with a timeshare cancellation company can be a great way to get the job done, though it’s crucial to find the right company.


When (and How) to Find a Timeshare Cancellation Company


Many people do not consider working with timeshare cancellation companies until they have exhausted all other options. Many other people do not even know timeshare cancellation companies even exist! However, working with one of these companies is often the most efficient and effective way to cancel your timeshare and ensure you’re able to get everything done with as few problems as possible. Of course, there are still several things to watch out for if you are considering working with a timeshare cancellation company to cancel your timeshare. 


Because of the notorious issues with individuals being lied to when purchasing timeshares and being pressured into purchasing timeshares, an entire industry of timeshare cancellation companies has sprung up. When you conduct a simple search seeking information on how to cancel your timeshare, you can typically find hundreds of companies offering their assistance to help in this process. However, it is vital for any individuals looking to cancel their timeshare to note these companies are not always looking out for their best interests. 


Many timeshare cancellation companies can be just as problematic as the timeshare companies themselves. In fact, many companies representing themselves as being able to help cancel your timeshare are, in fact, scams. There are many ways these companies mislead customers. For example, they may hire lawyers to do the work for them – something an individual could do on their own, and an ineffective strategy in many cases. They may spend their time attempting to sell or rent a timeshare on your behalf, which can be a lengthy process and end up costing you a lot of money. Some measures they may take can even be illegal. 


To avoid potential scams if you’re interested in working with a timeshare cancellation company, it is always a good idea to start the process by looking at the reviews and references for the company you’re interested in. Timeshare cancellation companies often use the same high-pressure sales tactics as the timeshare companies themselves to get individuals to work with them. However, the best way to know whether a company is worth working with is to look at the results they are getting. Taking the time to see what people are saying about that company will let you know whether they are someone you can actually depend on to help you in your situation. 


When you have finally decided to work with a company to cancel your timeshare, you should always get everything in writing, including the fees you will need to pay and all guarantees. Be sure you look everything over and know what you are getting yourself into. Signing a contract without understanding it fully is typically what gets people when they invest in a timeshare in the first place. Understanding the contract when you sign up with a timeshare cancellation company before you sign on the dotted line ensures you know what you’re getting into and prevents any possible problems. Fortunately, there are great companies out there able to help you cancel your timeshare and get the freedom you need and deserve.

An Online Psychiatrist Can Help You Navigate Tough And Uncertain Times

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on everyone. However, not everyone has experienced the same things. Whether it’s the economic uncertainty, having to invest in new technology so your kids can participate in remote learning, or anything else, stress levels are at an all-time high for the general population. And the hard part about it all for many people is they can’t socialize with their friends to unwind due to social distancing and other health regulations.


The Global Pandemic has highlighted the need for increased access to mental health care. Visiting with an online psychiatrist can transform a person’s mental health in ways that can only be imagined until you have the first visit. We are living in transformational times of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the good news is access to an online psychiatrist has never been easier for people who need one.


How The COVID-19 Pandemic Has Contributed To Mental Health Concerns


Whether it’s the fear of getting COVID-19, the economic impacts of the pandemic, or anything else, mental health concerns have never been higher. This includes people who have never had mental health issues before, and also people who been struggling for years. In fact, in a study published by the Kaiser Family Foundation, four out of every ten United States adults have indicated experiencing some level of depression or anxiety since the pandemic began. This number was roughly one out of every ten adults in a six-month study from January 2019 to June 2019.


People who lost their jobs or had to take drastic pay cuts have had to alter their lifestyles almost immediately. Even those who can work from home have experienced major disruption to their daily routines. What was once a given is now ever-changing. When life gets turned sideways instantly, it’s sometimes difficult to understand the impacts to your mental health. And these impacts are present in adults as well as children. Aside from the economic impact, social isolation has contributed to feelings of depression, distress, anxiety, and low self-esteem, which can be particularly difficult for children to deal with.


Mental Healthcare Access Has Drastically Improved


One positive thing about the COVID-19 pandemic is that it has highlighted the importance of taking care of your mental health as much as your physical health. As regulators rushed to loosen access to virtual health care more generally, to keep patients out of doctor’s offices where they could spread disease, they created step-level change in access to online care. By allowing Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams to be used for accessing health care generally, a blossoming of access to online psychiatrists has occurred. According to an article published in The Newport Daily News, many people have sought out the services of a psychiatrist who have never considered mental health care before the pandemic began.


Reducing the stigma surrounding mental health is crucial today to ensure people get the help they need. It’s never been easier to book an appointment with an online psychiatrist, and it could be exactly what you need to turn your mental health around for the better. One of the stigmas surrounding mental health is if you have to visit a psychiatrist, then it must mean there’s something wrong with you. Now that visiting with an online psychiatrist is an option, you won’t have to leave your home to get the help you need. And you’ll also feel much better with your internal thoughts as well as interacting with other people.


Is An Online Psychiatrist Right For You?


You might not be able to understand the benefits of speaking with an online psychiatrist until you make your first appointment. However, people who have taken the leap of faith and booked their appointment rarely regret it and look forward to making their next appointment. Some of the benefits you can experience from visiting with an online psychiatrist include:


  • Gaining access to anonymous support groups
  • Taking advantage of free content to help your mental health
  • Being prescribed medication if needed
  • Having access to individual therapy


The online psychiatrist you work with is only concerned about your mental health when you visit with them. You don’t have to leave the comfort of your home, so a lot of the stigmas you might be worried about are non-existent.


Reasons For Visiting An Online Psychiatrist


It’s normal to not know exactly if you should visit an online psychiatrist or not. You shouldn’t compare yourself to other people in life, but sometimes it’s helpful to know who has improved their life and compare their situations to yours. For example, many people who experience the following symptoms have benefitted from an online psychiatrist:


  • Excessive stress
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Being burned out
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Not being motivated
  • Inability to focus


Of course, some of these symptoms come and go depending on the circumstances of the day. But if some of these symptoms are prolonged for you, then an online psychiatrist can help reverse them and help you have a more positive state of mind.


Take Control Of Your Mental Health


Taking control of your mental health has never been easier because of the resources available to you. The American Psychiatric Association offers plenty of resources for you to take advantage of as needed to improve your mental health. While it’s easy to find the help you need, the hardest part is taking the first step and admitting you need some assistance. It’s important to understand that you’re not different in any way by needing assistance from an online psychiatrist. What many people find out after visiting with an online psychiatrist is they’ve been dealing with mental health issues longer than expected, but the COVID-19 pandemic brought them to light.


You’re so close to taking control of your mental health, and a single visit with an online psychiatrist can be a major step. It’s never been more important to boost your mental health and help play a role in reducing the stigmas surrounding mental health. And when you do, you’ll be on your way to living a more fulfilling life.

Prioritize Your Health And Wellness With The Right Products

With the busy lives we all have, it’s easy to lose focus on personal health and wellness. At the end of a long day, it’s natural to only look forward to getting in bed or relaxing on the couch and watching television. While this is something you deserve and you need to treat yourself occasionally, making it part of your daily lifestyle might not be ideal. When you take a look at various health and wellness product reviews, you might realize that prioritizing wellness isn’t as difficult as you think. The right fitness products, diet and nutrition products, mental health products, and anything in between can help make personal health and wellness fun. Most wellness product reviews are designed to give you some insight into particular products you might find helpful.


Fitness Products


Everyone views fitness differently. Some people think they are fit only if they go to the gym for an hour every day. While others feel like they are staying on top of fitness by walking around the block for 30 minutes a few times each week. There are no right or wrong answers, but having the best fitness products can help you achieve your goals. It’s easier than ever to keep track of exercises, calories burned, and other measurable milestones. Check out wellness product reviews about setting up a home gym, fitness trackers, smart rings, workout recovery devices, workout apps, weight loss apps, and much more. Depending on your fitness goals, you can find the perfect product to help you every step of the way.


Diet And Nutrition Products


Another major part of your health and wellness is your diet and nutrition. Many people don’t get all of the vitamins and nutrients needed daily, so sometimes supplements are necessary to maintain proper health. If you’ve struggled with finding a good balance with your diet and nutrition, consider checking out wellness product reviews about items that could help. You could find a great vitamin company that offers a subscription to ensure you always have the vitamins you need. Other companies have a similar concept, but ship fresh produce and other food products directly to your door. These are easy ways to ensure you have access to the best health and wellness products and it’s hard to beat the convenience they offer.


Mental Health Aids


Mental health has gotten a lot of recognition in recent years for good reasons. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health and might even need more attention. Acknowledging that your mental health isn’t where it needs to be is sometimes difficult to do or recognize, but it’s the first step in living a happier and more fulfilling life. When you’re checking out wellness product reviews, take a look at some mental health aids that you can incorporate into your daily life. 


Whether you deal with anxiety, depression, or any other mental health concerns, there are plenty of resources available to help. When you look at wellness product reviews, you can see how these aids have assisted other people who might be going through similar struggles as you. Knowing you aren’t alone and that help is available can be the most valuable things to help you strengthen your mental health.


Dental Care 


Your oral health plays a big role in your overall physical health. When you go to the dentist regularly, they might be able to detect issues that could lead to other health problems in the future. This gives you the opportunity to visit your medical doctor and potentially solve a problem before it becomes a major issue. What makes this difficult for some people is not having adequate insurance or coverage to get the appropriate dental care they need.

Avoid Paying Full Price For Products At RebateKey

Everyone loves getting a great deal on products they were going to purchase anyway. The great thing about being a consumer in today’s world is you usually have multiple options to choose from when buying a product. The same product could be sold at different online retailers so you can be patient and find the best deal possible. When you have an Amazon promo code, you can get even more savings than what is advertised on the website. RebateKey offers an Amazon promo code to consumers to make the buying process as seamless as possible. Here’s how it works and how you can avoid paying full price for products.


How Can You Get A Rebate For Purchases?


Getting a rebate for purchase through RebateKey is one of the simplest ways to save money. You can shop for products just like you would on any other website, add them to your cart, pay for them, and then you’ll be provided with an order number. This order number serves as your Amazon promo code that can be worth a rebate of up to 100%. There is a waiting period of 35 days to ensure the seller has enough time to fulfill the order and the consumer has enough time to use the product. Then a check gets mailed to the address you entered for the rebate amount listed.


The RebateKey Process Is Simple To Follow


Getting your Amazon promo code with RebateKey is easy. Simply sign up for free to create an account with RebateKey. The information you provide is used only to ensure RebateKey has what they need to mail your rebate checks to you. Once your US residency is verified via text message, then you simply need to shop on the RebateKey website just like you would on any other online retailer. Each product will have a specific discount percentage so you know exactly how much your rebate will be for a product before you purchase it. The sellers dictate what the rebate amount is and it can vary from month to month.


No Reviews Are Necessary To Receive Your Rebate


The best thing about the RebateKey program is you don’t have to write reviews to receive your Amazon promo code. In fact, when sellers participate in the RebateKey program, they aren’t allowed to ask buyers for a review in exchange for the rebate or other incentive. Of course, you can write a review if you feel inclined to do so, but it will not impact your rebate either way. RebateKey wants to provide a no-pressure option for consumers to buy products they need at discounted prices and make the process as comfortable and simple as possible.


Enjoy Savings On Every Purchase


Shopping at RebateKey is a fun way to save money. The platform looks similar to what you’re used to seeing from other websites, but knowing you’ll have an Amazon promo code to save money makes shopping even more fun. The only catch you should be aware of is you can only use an Amazon promo code one time for most products. But if you’re purchasing multiple products, then you can claim a rebate for up to five purchases each day and no more than 50 times per month. And once a new month comes, your limit gets reset and you can claim 50 more rebates for the next month.


When you know an Amazon promo code is available for the purchases you want to make, shopping can be more fun. RebateKey wants to enhance your experience as a buyer as much as possible, and there are not many better options than receiving rebate checks in the mail periodically. The money can go directly into your pocket to use on other purchases from RebateKey. The more you spend, the more you save, and you might be surprised at how much money you can save in the long run.


Experience A New World Of Creativity With Epoxy

Whether you’re a naturally crafty person or if you’re looking to discover a new hobby, working with epoxy can open up a new world in your imagination. Trying new things is something everyone should do to lead them to their talents. Many people don’t even realize their full potential until they try different things and learn to adjust accordingly. An epoxy kit is something anyone can work with and you might be surprised at how much it opens creative thoughts in your mind. Once you learn how to use it, you can see how easy it is and all the opportunities you have to make some beautiful and unique creations.


Epoxy Is Simple, Fun, And Easy To Use


People who haven’t used an epoxy kit before usually pick up on it pretty quickly. It’s as simple as mixing the resin and the hardener according to the directions on the manufacturer’s packaging. Add some colored powder and stir until you’ve achieved the color you desire. It may take up to 5-7 minutes of mixing before it reaches the perfect color and consistency you need for it to be effective, but then the hard work is done. Use it for any project you have and it will be ready after a 72-hour drying period. 


What To Look For In The Best Epoxy Kit


Every epoxy kit isn’t the same, so it’s important to look at the different features to ensure you find the right one that makes things easier on you. A 1:1 ratio of hardener and resin is ideal so you can easily see how much of each is needed. Otherwise, you might add too much or too little of one and the product won’t be as effective. You also want to look at how the epoxy cures. An epoxy kit that doesn’t cure to a clear finish isn’t ideal since it could become yellow over time. The goal is for it to look like glass once it has been set. Epoxy that’s easy to spread is also beneficial since bubbles often form in it. Your epoxy kit should indicate that it’s water-resistant, as well as resistant to scratches and normal wear and tear so your creation will look great for many years.


Use Your Imagination With Your Creations


The great thing about using an epoxy kit is you’re only limited to your imagination with anything you make. If you like to incorporate a lot of detail and enjoy working with small items in your fingers, then you could make earrings, necklaces, or other types of jewelry using your epoxy kit. Or you could make larger items like personalized coasters or picture frames. Mix and match different colors to find some unique combinations for your creations. An epoxy kit can be used for a wide range of applications, so discover what you enjoy making the most by experimenting any chance you get.


Tackle DIY Projects Or Give Unique Gifts Using An Epoxy Kit


If you love taking on DIY projects around your house, then you owe it to yourself to try an epoxy kit. Between YouTube videos and the variety of home improvement shows available on streaming tv, you’ll be sure to find fun things you can do to spruce up your home. Another thing people like to do with their epoxy kit is to make personalized items to give as gifts. Think about all of the gifts you normally give for graduation, birthdays, weddings, holidays, and more. Using an epoxy kit to make personalized and customized items can be priceless to the person you’re giving it to since it took a lot of thought, effort, and love to create it. And who knows, when you get good enough at making certain things, you might have people willing to buy items from you and can start a little business.


Invest in the best epoxy kit and explore the creative options you have with it. It’s a fun way to expand the mind and see how good of an imagination you have.


Ways To Improve Your Outlook On Every Day

It’s easy to get stuck into a boring routine that never changes any given day. If you feel like your routine is leading to a poor outlook on life every day, then it’s time to make some changes. Many people think they have to make significant life changes to become happier, but that’s not always the case. Simply changing a couple of daily routines you have or setting aside some time to focus on cleanliness around your home can give you a better outlook on your life every day. Consider these ways to improve your outlook every day if you feel like you’re stuck in the same mundane routine daily.


How Do You Begin Your Morning?


One of the best ways to improve your day is to improve how you start your morning. It can sometimes seem like however your morning starts dictates what the rest of the day looks like. This doesn’t have to be the case, but if you feel like your mornings could be a little better, then take steps to improve them. One thing many people invest in is a therapy light box. The benefits of light therapy are becoming more widely known and spending 10-15 minutes on it every morning can go a long way in improving your mood. You can turn on the therapy light box and sit in front of it in silence, or keep it on while you’re getting dressed for the day. A therapy light box surprises people with how effective it is at enhancing their mood, so consider incorporating it into your routine for a change.


Find A Routine That Works For You And Stick With It


When the same morning routine gets boring to the point where you don’t look forward to getting out of bed every day, then it’s time to make a change. If you’re a coffee drinker, this could mean changing up the way you drink your coffee a bit. Drinking the same instant coffee each day might give you the caffeine fix you need, but do you really enjoy drinking it? Investing in a stainless steel coffee canister can be your secret to drinking a fresh cup of coffee you’ll enjoy every morning. 


A stainless steel coffee canister works to keep your coffee beans as fresh as possible by venting CO2 and preventing oxygen from getting into the canister. The result is the freshest cup of coffee you can drink every morning, and that’s something to look forward to waking up for. And what many people find valuable to begin their day is drinking their cup of coffee with their therapy light box on. You might even feel like waking up early so that you can ease into your day and have some time spent just with yourself. A few minutes of peace and quiet every morning can help get your mindset right and go a long way in improving your outlook on each day ahead.


Clean Possessions Can Improve Your Outlook


You might be surprised at how much dirty possessions in and around your home can impact your outlook. Small daily steps around the house can keep things inside tidy and neat, but what about everything you have outside? Entering a dirty vehicle won’t usually give you a sense of pride in what you’re driving. One thing that can help you keep your vehicle clean is a rotating brush hose. Simply attach the rotating brush hose attachment to your regular garden hose and the pressure from the water makes it rotate. The bristles are soft enough where you won’t have to worry about scratching your car when it’s used correctly, but it’s also tough enough to get dirt, mud, and grime off your rims.


The rotating brush hose can also be used for many other outdoor possessions, like boats, bicycles, lawnmowers, garden tools, pet supplies, windows, siding, patio furniture, and much more. As quick and easy as it is to attach, cleaning your outdoor possessions can become fun, and it’s much easier to have a better outlook on your situation when everything is clean and shiny.


Sometimes the simplest things can improve your outlook on every day, even though it might not seem like it at times. If you’re ever feeling like you’re stuck in a rut, bingeing streaming tv and can’t get out, change up your daily routine as much as you can control. Small steps can make a big difference and it’s worth trying if the result is having a positive mindset about the day ahead.
