Happy New Year, to our fellow Women in White Coats! With the new year comes a chance for a fresh start and many of us set resolutions to make wellness, self-care and fitness a bigger priority in life. With that in mind we have put together a list of some of our favorite wellness and fitness items. You’ll find items for healthy cooking, fitness items and gadgets, and even skin care and book recommendations. We’d love to hear if you have any additional suggestions. If so, please leave a comment below.

This is a great spiralizer for making zucchini or yellow squash noodles which are a fantastic low-carb swap for pasta. We love it because it comes with a few different options of sizes of blades depending on if you’d like thick or thin noodles. Also it has suction cups on the bottom so that you can secure the spiralizer to your counter top and it won’t slide.
An essential oil diffuser can be a great way to help you relax after a busy day at the hospital or clinic. We love this pineapple one because it stylish and discrete. Who would guess its even a diffuser?
Yoga is such a great form of exercise that is also very relaxing. We love this reversible yoga mat because it’s functional and beautiful.
You’ve heard over and over again about how great meditation is for you. It’s time to make it a part of your daily routine. This lotus flower meditation mat is a favorite because it creates a special space for calming the mind.
Keeping track of steps is a great way to motivate yourself to get more movement in. All of a sudden taking the stairs or parking further from the store in the parking lot makes more sense. With a Fit Bit Fitness Activity Tracker you can also make it fun and compete with family, friends or colleagues to see who gets more steps in. And this lavender one is super cute, too.
We all know we need to drink more water, but when we are busy at work it’s easy to forget. That’s why we love this Smart Water bottle called Spark 3 which is perfect to keep at your desk. It not only gives you gentle reminders to drink more water by soft flashing light but it also tracks how much water you are drinking each day. And it’s battery powered so no need to charge it often.
We love this Clarisonic Facial Brush because its such a great way to get really clean skin, unclog pores and also prevent signs of aging. The sonic waves help the skin create more collagen.
To round out our list, be sure to get a copy of The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. It will give you an action plan for implementing an empowering routine to your mornings so you can get the most out of your days and make each morning a miracle.
