Life is freaking nuts. It's cold one day, hot another, and its hard to take that mental slash physical break we so need. But with Christmas and 2016 just around the corner, how about a short "Ohm", to check in with what's going on upstairs?
With deadlines and waistlines getting tighter, we anticipate one getting stretched for mental juice. That's where our 2015 JRINK Gift Box comes in: a curated selection of items for that "busy person" needing a bit of TLC for their minds and bodies.
1. American-made and DC-based, Appointed Notepad.
There's something special about tangible, quality, items that not everyone has. And If you're anything like us, with a love-hate relationship with tech, you'll love this classic desk essential: great for doodling, jotting down notes and getting a head start on 2016 resolutions. Trust. This hand-crafted chambray notepad will quickly become a part of your daily ritual.
2. Two Exclusive JRINK Spice Blends.
Good things come in small packages. Literally. Part of the body's stress comes from an overly acidic body pH, stemming from stress, bad food, alcohol, and caffeine. Time to get off the fatigue / stimulant treadmill and add a bit of spice in your life.
The 1st mix is our classic Chai Spice, a blend of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, and black pepper. Mix it with your black tea or sprinkle it on your AM snack of choice (JRINK pro-tip: dash on your AM oatmeal. Um, yum?). The 2nd mix is our Pyro Blend with dehydrated ginger, cayenne, and turmeric, great for boosting immunity and keeping you warm throughout the chilliest of months. Add a dash to your hot water in the AM and start the morning fresh (erm, clean? if you know what we mean, wink).
3. Stewart & Claire Peppermint Follain Lip Balm.
How important is it to moisturize during the Winter? On a scale of 1-very, very. And all moisturizers are not created equal and can actually dry out your lips more. All-natural and moisturizing, this minty lip balm made with all natural & organic ingredients will soothe and protect your lips as we head into the colder wintery months. You'll have to try it (on) to find out.
Ingredients include: Jojoba oil, Beeswax, Safflower oil, Shea butter, Rosehip seed oil, Castor oil, Rose absolute, Peppermint essential oil, Geranium essential oil.
4. A $10 JRINK Gift Card.
Treat yourself to a healthy indulgence, on us. Don't deny it, you've earned it.
Whether this gift box is for you or for another, its the perfect collection of items to give a head start on those 2016 New Year Same You resolutions. Sometimes a little reminder or "mindfulness" about what we're feeding both our upstairs and downstairs bod', should be at the top of our list. Ohm.
