Your 'Back to the Real World' Kit

It's time to get back to (wellness) basics.
back to the real world organic meal kit delivered

*Affiliate disclosure. 

Grounding into the flow that carries us from the carefree vibe of summer to the structured feel to fall can be overwhelming. We're suddenly forced to go from fun and freedom to routines, scheduled bedtimes, and more work, less vacation. Oof. No wonder there's a lot of the Sunday scaries happening on the daily during this week. 

Here's why: when our personal ecosystem -- our health and our overall vibe -- is disrupted due to a change in rhythm, we start to feel out of sync. As a result, we might be operating from anxious and scattered energy that could affect our general well-being. We might get sick, lose sleep, or become easily stressed out over the tiniest things.

When we think of our bodies and spirit as a vital ecosystem that sustains us then we're able to see that when we take care of ourselves from the inside out, we're better equipped to handle the disruptions and stress from our outer world, like, for example, the reemergence of meal prep Sundays and homework. 

Which is why it's so important to have a handy kit of wellness essentials to help ease you into your new routine. Thankfully, we rounded up our favorite wellness products, from supplements to beauty products to even an organic meal delivery service, that will provide you with the much-needed tools to help you get back to the real world. You're welcome!

Elysium NAD+ Supplement

Supplements are an important part of a healthy regimen and can help you get back on track with your vitamin and mineral needs as well as enhance and support your body in a way that food cannot.

Elysium's NAD+ supplement is a great addition to your supplement routine. NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in all living cells and is a necessary part of fundamental biological processes, including creating energy and keeping DNA healthy. But NAD+ levels decline as we age, which is why you might want to try NAD+ supplementation. It's a new season for a new you, after all.

From the Organic Authority Files

Now that you have the bed of your organic dreams, it's time to prepare an evening rituals kit. Having an evening ritual allows you to reclaim your energy from your hectic day. Consider it a little "me" time where you get to clear your mind, free up space for the day ahead, and allow you to sleep better. 

Vitruvi's Evening Rituals Kit is perfect for this. It comes with full-sized bottles of their five favouite essential oil products, including frankincense and lavender, for ending your day.

True Botanicals Repair Serum

Stress and lack of sleep cause us to look a bit more, uh, less glowing than usual. As we adapt to our new bedtimes, we need all the help we can get to look as fresh as a daisy in the morning. Adding a night time repair serum like this one from True Botanicals to your evening beauty routine will give your skin everything it needs to look plumper, smoother, and more radiant.


Goop Glow Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator


We know: you love your summer glow and hate the idea that it'll fade away into dullness. Never fear! Because with this Instant Glow Exfoliator from GOOP, which is inspired by the transformative brightening and smoothing effects of microdermabrasion, you'll definitely be able to keep your lovely glow even as the weather becomes, yikes, cooler. 

Exfoliation is a key ingredient to any beauty routine since it cuts down on debris and bacteria, and promotes clear and bright skin while softening the look of fine lines and wrinkles, so if you haven't included it yet in yours, now is the time to do it.

Vegamour Lash and Brow Volumizing Serum

Did you know your lashes grow in cycles? They often become the fullest in the summer and then start to shed once the fall weather comes. To keep your lashes as thick and sexy as ever, you'll want to add a lash serum into your makeup mix. And since full brows will never go out of style (especially since we all remember too well the dreadful pencil-thin trend of the '90s) you can't go wrong with a brow serum either. 

These vegan and cruelty-free serums from Vegamour promise to create fuller, denser, longer looking lashes and brows the healthy way in as little as 30 days after regular, committed use -- without hormones, carcinogens or dangerous side effects.


Quip Electric Toothbrush

Looking for a new toothbrush for your "new" morning routine? Why not try an electric toothbrush like this set from Quip? 

Accepted by the American Dental Association, you get a full two-minute clean thanks to its sensitive sonic vibrations, built-in timer, and 30-second pulses to remind you when to switch sides. Plus, every three months they deliver a fresh brush head and battery for only $5. That way you never have to deal with a worn-out toothbrush! It's something to smile about, especially after that new 5 a.m start to the day.

Quip metal sets start at $40

Ora Organic Vegan Pre-Workout Powder


Did you slack off from your exercise routine this summer? Now that it's cooler and our days aren't as fun and frivolous, it's the perfect time to get back to the gym and get your sweat on. If you need a little pep in your step -- especially if you're not the morning riser type or just need some motivation -- you might want to try a pre-workout powder like this organic vegan one from Ora. 

Coming in a delicious organic beet and pomegranate flavor, the powder is a clean source of energy that includes 90mg of caffeine thanks to a balanced blend of organic green coffee bean, yerba mate, matcha tea, eleuthero root, and ginseng, that will get you ready to run it out. But because it doesn't have beta alanine, it won't make you feel strung out or jittery.
