With the new year comes a time to cleanse, restore and set goals that prime for success! Gwen and Lindsey are kicking off a cleaner, healthier year with their favorite post-holiday wellness routines. From activities that hone concentration such as meditation and reading, to recipes and supplements that help boost vitality, get inspired by the ways these Laundress gals are gearing up for a clean and green 2018.
Gwen is…off to a clean, fresh start
1. SINGLE-SERVE BLENDER | NINJA
Gwen always kicks off the new year with dry January for a clean, fresh start, so Santa gave her a new ninja for her morning shakes! While she doesn't love the unit sitting on her counter, the convenience of a single-serving blender and takeaway cup more than makes up for what it lacks in style.
2. NATURAL CALM DRINK MIX | THE HERBAN CHEMIST
This new find has earned a place in Gwen's evening wind down. The mixture of magnesium and calcium helps aid relaxation of the body, mind and digestion. Gwen even gifted her mom a jar for Christmas!
3. HEPA AIR FILTER | ALEN
Gwen got a clean read on her tox test last year thanks to The Laundress products and a farm fresh diet, save for the inevitable city pollution. To combat smog and allergens, she landed on an air purifier that's as pleasing to the eyes as it is for the lungs!
4. KALE & CHICKPEA STEW | NATURALLY ELLA
Gwen is always on the hunt for new recipe ideas that are both delicious and healthy. Recently, she's been digging through this blog for inspiration.
5. MEDITATION APP | INSIGHT TIMER
As everyone has been trying to get Gwen to up her meditation game, she's giving this free app suggested by Dr. Lipman a shot! There's little excuse when sessions can be adjusted to as little as10 minutes before bed or first thing in the morning.
Lindsey is…getting organized and restoring balance
1. YOGA CLASSES | SKY TING YOGA
This year, Lindsey is all about finding balance, and what better way to start than with an eagle pose? She retreats to this bright, spacious yoga studio to center mind, body, and spirit.
2. CRYOTHERAPY | VITALITY NYC
Lindsey is keeping it cool with cryotherapy! The subzero temperature helps reduce the impact of stress on the body while stimulating circulation, healing, and detoxification—perfect after a long trip or intense AKT class!
3. IBOOKS APP | APPLE
On a mission to spend more time reading books, Lindsey loves using the iBooks app to download her list of page-turners. A fan of Ruth Ware, she's currently working on The Lying Game after finishing The Woman in Cabin 10.
4. PYTHON NOTEBOOK | GRAPHIC IMAGE
Lindsey's keeping it organized by checking off her work and personal to-do lists with this chic notebook.
5. SUPPLEMENTS | HONEY BRAINS
It's much easier to keep a clear head when your brain is supplied with the nutrients it needs. Lindsey is already feeling the benefits of these supplements in addition to 8Greens.
6. WRIST WEIGHTS | TONE-Y-BANDS
As we age, weight training becomes crucial for keeping up muscle memory. Cardio girl Lindsey is switching up her routine with Weight Wednesday using these wrist weights!
