3 Ways To Reset This Spring

* this post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx *

Spring is my favorite time of the year! It’s a time full of growth and possibility. It’s the perfect opportunity to reset and realign. Today I’m sharing four products that will assist you along your path of resetting this spring!

1. Relax & Read a Book

One of my go-to ways to reset and relax is to immerse myself in a novel. Especially a novel that is real page turner and has my attention! If you’re looking for a nail-biting suspense story that will keep you on your toes I highly recommend Those Empty Eyes by Charlie Donlea and On The Line by Fern Michaels.

On The Line by Fern Michaels has a little mix of family distinction, drug cartels, the culinary scene, and a medical mystery! This is one of those stories that will have you on your toes the ENTIRE time. If you’re a fan of Colleen Hoover novels, you will love On The Line!

Those Empty Eyes by Charlie Donlea is about a very strong female character that murdered her entire family when she was younger. This moody psychological thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat. If you’re a fan of dark suspense, this novel is for you!

2. Take a Biological Age Test

Did you know everyone ages at a different rate? Did you know that there are 10 different aspects to aging? Most of us just think of our age as how many years we have been alive, but in reality there is so much more to it. Elysium Health is on a mission to help people lead healthier lives. With the help of the worlds leading scientists and clinicians, their Index – Biological Age Test is the most precise age test.

Here is what you will receive with your Index:

  • Science-backed Recommendations – evidence-based lifestyle habits you can used to adopt a healthier life.

Elysium Health’s Index – Biological Age Test is the most comprehensive epigenetic age test and all they need is your saliva!

3. Make Sure Your Medicine Cabinet is GMO Free

If you’re like me, you suffer from occasional digestive health issues. Some things just don’t sit right in my stomach and I’m in need of immediate relief. Knowing I have Wonderbelly Antacid on hand to fight heartburn, indigestion, or a sour stomach keeps me at ease.

These DELICIOUS chewable tables are talc free and have zero dyes, artificial sweeteners, parabens, and GMOs. They come in a recyclable container and the Wonderbelly branding is just adorable!! Their NEW flavor Fruity Cereal is just wonderful. I also really enjoy the Strawberry Milkshake flavor as well!

With these 3 phenomenal products on hand, you can’t go wrong this spring!

Quick and Easy Lunch with Minute Rice

As y’all know, I live in a van full time! That means I’m always in the need of quick meals that not only taste good, but are made good. I got so excited when I heard Minute Rice released two new delicious flavors of their Minute Rice Cups, Jasmine Rice & Red Quinoa and Jalapeño Rice Cups. These BPA free microwavable cups are ready in just 60 seconds. Never worry about overeating because they are single portion servings!

Minute Rice Cups are non-GMO, have zero preservatives, are MSG and cholesterol free, and Gluten Free. Everyone can enjoy one of these tasty cups. The cup is also 100% recyclable! I like to make rice bowls with these cups by adding a few of my favorite ingredients. First things first, microwave your cup for 60 seconds and don’t forget to remove the film!

For this rice bowl I’m using the Jalapeño Rice Cup. I love the added onions, green peppers, and Jalapeños. It’s the perfect amount of seasoning, saving me even more time to enjoy my meal.

Next I am adding rotisserie chicken, black beans, and a fresh avocado. Wait for your cup to cool down and then pour your rice into a bowl.

Once I have added all of my ingredients, I mix them throughly with the rice. You can make this rice bowl anytime of the day and change up the ingredients every week! These are now a staple in our van kitchen.

I love that with Minute Rice you can make a delicious and easy meal at any time. This means less time in the kitchen, and more time enjoying my meals by the beach.

R I C E B O W L R E C I P E:

• one Minute Jalapeño Rice Cup

• 1/2 a cup of rotisserie chicken

• 1/2 a cup of black beans

• 1 avocado (I love avocado so I put the whole thing but you can also just do 1/2)

I love sitting down and reading a book that inspires me. Sitting by the beach or relaxing in the bath while reading a book is a great way to recharge! Kensington Books has been providing books for over 40 years. It is one of the last remaining independent U.S. publishers of hardcover, trade and mass market paperback books.

Two books I highly recommend sending to a woman in your life are The Nurse’s Secret by Amanda Skenandore and The Book Spy by Alan Hlad.

Both novels are historical fiction and inspired by the real lives of magnificent women who, despite their outstanding accomplishments, still had to go through trials and obstacles! These books will leave you with a feeling of inspiration and appreciation for all the women in this world have done!

5. A Journal Set and Pen

Something I feel like every woman needs is a new pen and journal! You can’t go wrong with sitting down and journaling about your feeling, goals, and accomplishments! Levenger has luxury professional accessories, distinctive notebooks, and fine writing instruments. What better way to celebrate Women’s History Month than with a set of Emily Dickinson notebooks?! This set of 2 linen-covered notebooks was created in partnership with the Emily Dickinson Museum. One cover has a delicate floral pattern based on a fragment of the ACTUAL wallpaper from the poet’s bedroom! The other cover depicts, in Emily’s own handwriting, the manuscript of her poem “Tell all the truth but tell it slant.”

Pair the notebook set with the Retro 51 Emily Dickinson Exclusive Rollerball Pen AP19545. This pen was also created in partnership with the Poet’s museum! This capless rollerball pen has a lacquered brass barrel featuring a floral pattern based on wallpaper from Emily’s room.
