Not long ago, wellness wearables typically consisted of only a heart rate monitor and band, and were mostly worn by hard-core athletes, or they came as a watch that also tracked your steps. In a very short period of time, the wellness world has exploded, bringing with it the opportunity for all of us to enjoy wellness devices in new and unique ways.
Like all of you, the BELLA team loves to find new fun ways to get active, including connecting with tools that help us stayactive. After the tough year we have had, it’s no wonder more and more of us are ready to jump off of the couch and into new wellness routines.
Here are a few of our favorite products that have helped us monitor our heart rate and also relax. We hope you enjoy a few of our must-haves this season and that they motivate you, too, to enter into a new and improved mindful wellness space.
Ear seeding has taken off over the past three years as a new way to practice traditional Chinese medicine.VIE HEALING CALM 24K GOLD EAR SEEDS takes it to a new level. When these seeds are placed in different acupressure spots within the ear, it stimulates the reflex centers of the brain to soothe a multitude of symptoms. This practice is known as auriculotherapy.
