Concussion movie and League of Denial documentary

I generally like Will Smith movies, so I thought I’d try watching Concussion when I was browsing Netflix. I’m glad I did because I really enjoyed it. In one of my classes last year we talked a lot about concussions, so I found the movie intriguing. I remember the prof talking about how serious concussions are, and that they can lead to some pretty serious lasting effects. I also watched the PBS documentary League of Denial, which also included interviews with Dr. Bennett Omalu, who Will Smith played in Concussion. You can watch the PBS documentary online here.

Vanilla Bean Noel products from Bath and Body Works

 Vanilla Bean Noel Bath and Body Works

One of my favorite lines of Bath and Body Works products are their Vanilla Bean noel line that they have every Christmas.  I got this in my stocking this year and I’ve really been enjoying it since Christmas. It’s thicker than a moisturizer but it absorbs into my skin relatively quickly. And of course, my favorite part is that it smells amazing.

Posh Podcast

I recently heard about this podcast from Gina who blogs over at The Fitnessista. It’s essentially a bunch of remixes by DJ’s. It’s the perfect thing to workout to, and I’ve downloaded a few episodes to listen to while I’m at the gym. I love that Posh Podcast saves me the time (and money) of making my own playlist and buying music. While not every song is my favorite, I’m really liking them for the most part.

Headspace app

Headspace App

I think I’ve mentioned Headspace on the blog before, but I wanted to share about it again. I’ve been using it a lot more regularly the last month or so. I recently paid for a year long subscription ( there’s some meditations you can do for free to see how you like it, but if you want to do other ones you have to pay) and I’m so glad I did. For a lot of the meditations you have a couple options of how long you want to meditate for (3, 5, or 10 minutes for example). I typically do them when I get into bed for the night, but I have done them at other times of the day when I feel like I need a bit of relaxation. If you decide to subscribe, make sure you google promo codes for it. I used one of these on Retail Me Not and I saved 40% on a year long subscription.
