1. Two new sports bra innovations you need now

If you've ever worn a sports bra, then you know the hassle of wearing one that has pads but oftentimes gets lost in the laundry, or becomes deformed, making your bra look weird. Nike solves this problem with its new Nike Swoosh One Piece Pad sports bra, a singular bra pad that is seamlessly inserted and removed as desired, into the bra's pocket system. The classic Swoosh bra gets this upgrade for a thicker padding, for more modesty and an enhanced chest area shape.


The Nike Ultrabreathable sports bra on the other hand, was designed to solve the problem of sweaty sports bra and boob sweat. It's the brand's lightest and most moisture-repelling bra, and was conceptualized with the knowledge of where women typically sweat the most, and where breathability is needed. It's available in light, medium, and strong support iterations, where the parts that aren't exposed tend to need more support when in motion. Follow Swoosh Park for updates!

2. Calm the senses

Looking to start your journey to true wellness with essential oils? Scroll down for your much-needed guide to using it and a list of our top picks from Young Living that you can begin with.


To refresh your soul, you can use it aromatically by rubbing 2-3 drops of your chosen essential oil between your palms and inhaling it. If you want to use it topically, however, you can apply 2-3 drops of the variant directly on your skin and massage it in. You may opt to repeat the process as long as you follow the dilution instructions that come with the product. It’s important to note that some bottles may be too potent that it can cause skin irritation, but it can be treated with pure vegetable oil.—BV

3. Get a good night's sleep

These days, getting a good night's rest is an important aspect of our well-being, especially when times are uncertain and we need to keep our physical bodies strong. Unfortunately, a lot of us aren't getting the quality ZZZs we need because of a number of factors. They include strenuous workouts before bed, late afternoon coffee, stress levels, room lighting (especially blue light coming from our gadgets), and our bed!


You read that right: the type of mattress and pillow you use has a huge impact on the quality of your sleep! If you've been getting aches and pains, or uncomfortable sleep in general, your bed might be to blame. If a mattress is too hard, it might cause pain, and if it's way too soft, it might be putting your spine in danger. Your spine alignment is important as you sleep through the night, so paying close attention to this is crucial!




Comfort Living topper


If changing your mattress overnight isn't practical at the moment, we suggest trying a topper! Comfort Living offers toppers that has gel-infused memory foam technology, which has the ability to keep the body temperature down (especially great for the heat these days). Its cool gel beads provides long-lasting cool surface that molds to the body and relieves pressure points—crucial for deep rest and relaxation. Apart from toppers, the brand also offers a premium memory orthopedic pillow, body pillow, and premium cool tech gel-infused memory mattresses. Log on to their website for orders and more information.
