For mini mindful moments
If you have kids, you might struggle to find moments alone. Taking a nap? There may be a few little ones snuggling up with you. Cooking dinner? You might be teaching your kids how to help out. And while there’s nothing we love more than those special little moments, it is also important to carve out at least a few minutes a day for solo time. And, hey, we’re not judging if the only place you can be alone in your house is the shower. That’s why we love the Euka Wellness Shower Bombs, which were crafted by a husband-and-wife doctor duo. Each six-pack of shower bombs comes with two of each category: citrus-based “Happy,” lavender-and-eucalyptus-centric “Breathe Well + Calm,” and “Detox,” a delicious blend of grapefruit and peppermint. Simply drop them in the shower under the running water to create a spa-like experience in seconds.
Some days, you may not have time for a leisurely shower before you head out to tackle your endless to-do list. And for those days: an ice roller is your best friend. The Skinny Confidential Hot Mess Ice Roller, created by influencer and podcaster Lauryn Evarts, is our personal favorite. The handle is weighty and easy to hold, and the aluminum roller stays colder than anything we’ve tried. It’ll get your skin looking de-puffed and fresh in a matter of seconds. Plus, our favorite secret hack: if one of your little ones is feeling anxious, roll this down the back of their neck. It’ll hit a nerve called the vagus nerve, which is responsible for regulating stress response; icing the vagus nerve is a therapist and scientist-approved way to relieve anxiety fast.
