Since I live in a state in which it can be freezing cold and cloudy much of the year, I soak up these warm, sunny summer months as much as I can. This time of year, I spend the majority of my days outside. Between cycling, outdoor yoga sessions, walks with the family, gardening and more, I practically live outside.
Below are a few of my favorite products that make outdoor living more enjoyable, healthier and happier:
AfterShokz Trekz Air Open-Ear Headphones
If you are active outdoors at all, these are a must! I absolutely love the open ear concept of AfterShokz Trekz Air Headphones. It’s so much safer than traditional headphones as it allows you to hear your surroundings. Not only are they safer, but they are much more comfortable too as they don’t place pressure on your ears or cause tenderness like prolonged use of ear buds do. They are so lightweight that I continuously forget that I’m wearing them (see how they fit here).
I use mine daily when biking to yoga. Sweat, rain, mud…they are durable enough to handle it all. The battery life is pretty amazing too…I only have to charge mine once a week.
Isn’t the canyon red color so gorgeous too? You can purchase them HERE.
Brew Dr. Kombucha
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I brew my own booch! With that said, I still love trying new brands and flavors to inspire me. Lately, I’ve been loving on Brew Dr. Kombucha! Brew Dr. Kombucha is fermented black tea with lots of great cultures which has so many awesome health benefits, especially for gut health. I love the unique taste of their Clear Mind variety as it’s flavored with notes of rosemary and sage and unlike any other flavor I’ve had before (helps with mental clarity and focus too).
For a tasty, low sugar, no fat sipping option, these kombuchas are great! I’ve been enjoying the Strawberry Basil flavor so much too! It encompasses all things summer and is so refreshing on a hot day.
Heliocare® Daily Use Antioxidant Formula
As I’ve aged, one thing that’s taken precedence is skin care (start young!). Since I’m outside so often, taking steps to protect myself from the sun and the use of products that can help with skin care is an absolute must for me. While I use a daily sunscreen and other topical skin care products to keep my skin looking radiant and younger, I’ve began exploring supplements that can help as well.
Heliocare Daily Use Antioxidant Formula is a dietary supplement with antioxidant effects on the skin. Heliocare has Fernblock® PLE Technology, an exclusive and powerful antioxidant extract that assist in the removal of free radicals to help maintain younger looking skin*. Free radicals are known to be detrimental to your skin health by speeding up the aging process. While antioxidants can reverse damage, they have been shown to be helpful to ward against free radicals effects. Heliocare is loaded with antioxidants to help skin protect itself against the sun’s negative effects on the skin.

Skratch Labs Drink Mixes, Energy Chews & Energy Bars
I’m kind of a nerd when it comes to sports and health fitness products so I was super excited to give these products I try! I LOVE that they are all made with real ingredients (seriously, I checked all the ingredient lists and there was nothing that made me go “huh?”). Skratch Labs pride themselves on using ingredients that all serve a purpose to help you perform and feel better. Clean nutrition is something I dig and these products are perfect for fueling and rehydrating after grueling workouts.
The Sport Hydration Drink Mix is a must after a super sweaty workout for boosting your electrolyte levels (they have 800mg – twice that of Gatorade) and the Anytime Drink Mix is perfect after spending just a little too much time in the sun to help rehydrate. The protein energy bars are packed with protein while still being low in sugar (which can be impossible to find sometimes).

T-Rex Tape is one of those things that you don’t realize you need in your life. I’ve been DIY-ing like a mad woman the last few months and T-Rex Tape has came to the rescue more than a few times. When working on the patio or garden, regular duct tape doesn’t cut it. T-Rex tape has double adhesive that can withstand harsh climate (heat, sun, rain) and dirt/grime without forgoing adhesive power.
I had a pair of gardening shoes that I thought were on their last bit of life. A little T-Rex tape and they’ve been good as new. Also perfect for extending a little life to our patio furniture cushions which has been a major money saver!
