Over the years I have collected loads of research and education myself on which health & wellness products and routines make my body feel most robust both in terms of physical strength and mental health. These recommendations for healthy aging don’t come lightly! One might even go so far as to say that I have experimented on myself to identify exactly which products make me feel best.
That point is important.
Focus on what makes you feel best. Find a routine that works best for your body. We are all different and it is vital to customize our approach to health & wellness, especially as we grow older.
My Favorite Products for Healthy Aging
When it comes to healthy aging and wellness for the over 40s, I have a suite of favorite products for the home & body. Learn about all my favorite things here on this page.
If you read my post about the benefits of Infrared Sauna use, then you know I am a huge fan of detoxification at a cellular level. I began using infrared saunas about six months ago. I feel more focused, sleep better, and my skin radiates! This is THE sauna I have at home. I wanted a portable sauna and one that didn't take up much space. Sunlighten comes highly recommended in the health & wellness field.

There are so many harmful effects to electro-magnetic fields that penetrate our bodies and surround us every day. These pads allow for EMFs to neutralize and therefore have less of a negative effect. I put these on our phones, Ipads, computer, wi router, and so on. Similar to the blue light blocking dots, you won't realize all the sources of EMF until you start adding these pads. It is a bit overwhelming!
Our tap water is pretty good, but do you want your drinking water to be pretty good? or amazing? I will take the latter. We bought this reverse osmosis water filtration system years ago. It is easy to set up, easy to use, easy to clean, easy to maintain, and the water tastes fantastic.
LIGHT FILTERING READING LIGHT
I love to read in bed at night and this light makes that possible to do without negatively impacting my sleep every day in my own bed or when traveling. The light has a gentle amber hue over 99% free of blue spectrum light! This encourages the production of melatonin at night and helps with tired eyes. A lack of blue light helps melanopsin receptors in the retina signal to the brain that it is time to secrete melatonin in preparation for sleep.
SUPPLEMENTS - MUSHROOMS
This 7 mushroom blend supports foundational health and everyday immunity. In addition, it enhances natural blood-sugar modulation, respiratory and digestive health and helps your body adapt to stress. This blend includes Lion’s Mane, Reishi, Cordyceps, and Chaga mushrooms. I consistently take 2 capsules a day without food (although you can take them with food).
BLUE LIGHT BLOCKING BULBS
We put these lightbulbs all over our home. The bulbs truly do make a difference. Like my reading light, there is a gentle, amber hue light that is 99.94% free of blue spectrum light to encourage the production of melatonin in the evening and reduce eye strain. You can also use these bulbs in your nursery. Using a blue-free, amber light at night can help to maintain your baby's natural circadian rhythm.
BLUE LIGHT FILTERING DOTS
Block harmful light frequencies that negatively impact sleep, mood, and growth. I put these dots and squares on so many things around my home. For example, the blue light on my kids' keyboard, the lights in the refrigerator, the lights on my water filter, the light on my alarm box, and so on. You don't realize how much blue light there is around your home even after dark coming from tiny lights from various objects around your home!
I became enamoured with grounding products after watching The Earthing Movie. It didn't take much to convince me about the benefits of connecting with the earth such as decrease inflammation, better sleep, and decrease depression. We have a grounding mat under our desk, grounding sandals, grounding mat for our bed, and a grounding blanket. Easy to use and you will see immediate results.
FITNESS AND SLEEP TRACKER
The Oura ring is the be all end all when it comes to sleep tracking and overall wellness tracking. Through advanced technology, the Oura ring tracks sleep cycles, body temperature, heart rate, and much more. I rely on my Oura ring to get me back on track and to give me the feedback I need to know that my health & wellness routine is headed in the right direction.
The best way to wake up in the morning is with a warm cup of bone broth. I add a bit of hot sauce or a spice such as black pepper or cayenne. It hits the spot. Packed with protein, this breakfast and afternoon snack is THE perfect way to get energized for the day.
I won't lie. I am obsessed with this sleeping pad. As you know the temperature of your room and your bed impacts sleep. It is up to you to make the changes to have temperature work in your favor.
LIGHT FILTERING GLASSES
My husband pokes fun at my stack of BLUblox light filtering glasses. I have a pair for before sunrise and after sunset, for when I work on the computer, and for when I am running errands or living my day.
