describe the imageWake Up Light Alarm Clock: A natural wake up light can make a big difference in waking up and energy levels throughout the day. Basically, it is an alarm clock that gradually brightens with a daylight-type bulb and nature sounds instead of a blaring horn sound.

This particular one is recommended by the National Sleep Foundation and waking up gradually and naturally can have a big impact on energy levels and proper hormone production throughout the day.


Rumble Roller great gift idea for men deep tissue massage at home 150x150 resized 600Rumble RollerThis is one of my favorite gifts of all time too. Basically, it is a deep tissue massage at home, so it is a lot cheaper than regular massages in the long run.

It doesn’t take up much room and it is wonderful for sore muscles! I use this regularly and it has made a big difference in my muscle tension. Plus, it looks manly and tough, so men don’t mind using it. Here is the Rumble Roller I got and there are two different sizes and firmness levels.

Earthing Mat great gift idea to improve sleep and reduce stress 150x150 resized 600Earthing Mat: I’ve written about Earthing before and how an earthing mat helps me sleep a lot better. The basic concept is that it electrically grounds your body to help reduce inflammation, improve sleep, and even stops snoring!

Here is the one we use, and it comes with a book about the benefits of Earthing, and an outlet checker to check the ground of your outlet.


Squatty Potty for better digestion and health weird but it works 150x150 resized 600Squatty Potty: This would definitely be a gift for someone you have a special relationship with who won’t take it the wrong way! ASquatty Potty is a special stool that stows under the toilet and lets the user sit in a more natural “squatting” position when doing his business.

As an added plus, the Squatty Potty doubles as a great stool for potty training, so it gets a lot of use at our house!

I have a pair of the Women’s KSOs and I LOVE them. They can be tough to run on really hard surfaces with if you heel-strike when you run, but they are very comfortable and I wear them all the time.

In an attempt at style, Vibram has recently released some hot pink versions of their shoes, as well as some that look more like women’s flats.
