Ever since I started my fitness journey in September 2016, I have fallen more and more in love with leading a healthy lifestyle, and I am truly much happier overall than before I started looking after my health. However, there is more to health than just physical health. May is Women’s Health Month and what better way to celebrate than a roundup of amazing health and fitness products?
Have you noticed that the fitness and health trend is catching on? I’m not complaining! Nowadays, working on your fitness is something that more and more people are incorporating into their lifestyles. Maybe athleisure is here to stay! (Hands in the air emoji!) There are many facets to health, and Babbleboxx sent me a box of new products to review that cover vision, hearing, mental, and overall physical health. Hopefully you’ll find some items to snag for yourself!
Have you ever thought about how many hours in a day your eyes are glued to a screen? On average, a person spends 6.5 hours on screens each day. As a blogger and web designer, my eyes are locked on a screen all day long whether it’s for work or recreationally.
Did you know UV blue light can have damaging side effects over time – from the sun, devices and artificial light even light bulbs? I didn’t even know I had eye strain until I started wearing blue light blocking glasses while I worked on the computer.
Zenni is an online retailer for prescription glasses and glasses that are made with a clear lens that blocks HEV blue light. Frames start at $6.95! The Beyond UV blue blocker lenses (like the ones you see that I have) start at $16.95. You can upload your photo and try on glasses to see how they look on you.
I love Zenni UV blockers so much, I wanted to give away a pair to my readers! See the details at the end of this post on how to enter to win a FREE pair of Zenni glasses (up to $200)!
As a musician, I value my hearing. I have always taken steps to ensure I maintain my ear health with proper volume on earphones. However, no pair ever fit me correctly and I didn’t like that I had to remove them to hear someone talking to me. When I heard about the lightweight, open ear headphones by AfterShokz I was immediately intrigued.
The Trekz Air headphones uses bone conduction technology to deliver music through your cheekbones. These are perfect for listening to music while running and allowing you hear cars to keep you safe.
Use this discount code LISETTE30 to get $30 off Trekz Air until June 30th – and hop outside and don’t miss a thing – a conversation or the sound of the world around you.
Soy wax blend candles infused natural essential oil blends, you probably have heard me talk about my collection of Chesapeake Bay Candles on the blog. Hand poured in the USA, there are so many scents that evoke the senses and bring back nostalgic memories.
You can think of them as wellness candles with motivational sayings, like Balance and Harmony!
This candle smells like the clean air after a light summer rain. Perfect for that “zen” feeling. I love the frosted sea glass exterior as it goes well with my décor. I would definitely buy this at the store!
If you love organic vitamins and extracts and superfood powders, check out Pure Synergy.
Their Turmeric Extract optimizes wellness and cognitive function, and supports a healthy inflammatory response. It’s great for post-workout healing of inflamed muscles. Turmeric is one of those hot superfoods with many benefits, and achy joints is one of them!
The Organic Beet Juice Powder is a daily health booster, with tons of phytonutrients! It tasted sweet but not overly sweet! I’ve loved beets and ate them all the time as a kid. So whenever I want to get in more veggies while hitting my daily water goals, I can see myself mixing up a teaspoon of this beet juice powder for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

Breathable Sports Bra
I have been hitting the treadmill 4 times a week for the past 6 weeks (more on that in another post) and loving it. I am finally leaning out, something that I have been struggling with for the past year, and I’m excited to see where this takes me. However, one thing has happened to me each workout: I get so overheated that I have to take off my shirt less than a quarter of the way through.
The Champion Absolute Mesh sports bra is just what I’ve needed! The mesh material begins below your collarbones and extends down your back to allow your skin to breath and cool off. Since any perspiration will pass right through the mesh fabric, it helps keep you cool for longer!
It is also a compression bra and it helps keep me from jiggling, ahah. I wore it for the first time last night and I loved it! (I’m wearing a size medium).
A book for ambitious women
In The Myth of the Nice Girl, Fran Hauser takes apart the negative perception of “niceness” that many women struggle with in the business world. If women are nice, they are seen as weak and ineffective, but if they are tough, they are labeled a bitch in workplace culture.
If you’re a girl boss, or a woman who is climbing up the corporate ladder and looking for career guidance, check out The Myth Of A Nice Girl by Fran Hauser. This book is for women who believe being nice is a must and still want to be a strong leader.
I look forward to bringing this book with me to the beach! Even its color suggest it’s a great beach read!
I hope you liked this roundup of health and fitness products, and give some of them a try!
Which one is your favorite?
Myself, along with my friends at Zenni, want one lucky reader to win a $200 gift card good for one pair of prescription or non-prescription glasses or sunglasses. To win, simply comment below with one thing you plan on doing to better your wellness this month. On May 25th, I’ll pick one person to win the Zenni gift card! Good luck!
This month I am taking 30 minutes a day to myself that means no doing anything for anyone else. So far I have spent that time reading, taking a nap, and getting my favorite smoothie KALE YEAH. Taking this small amount of time just helps my sanity and makes me become a better me!

We started keto this month, so my goal is to stay on track with that!

I’ve had such high anxiety this past month & have been figuring out a why to help myself sleep better – so far, lavendar oil has helped a lot but going to work on cutting back caffeine as well!
Getting outside more! Cole and I went for a run today… I just about died BUT I did it! And I’ll *probably* do it again tomorrow, or at least get out for a walk!
