It’s that time of year again!
The Rooted team would love to share some of our favourite health products, tech and gifts from 2019.
If you’ve still got a bit of Holiday shopping to finish or maybe just want to treat yourself, then we hope Rooted’s Favourite Things gives you a few good ideas.
We will also be welcoming a brand new doctor to Rooted for 2020 – Dr. Morgan Ramsey. More details to come, but we’re sharing two of her favourites products below!
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid + B5 Serum – stocking stuffer alert!
If you have dry, dehydrated or oily skin this serum is your new best friend. Hyaluronic acid draws water to the skin from the environment to help plump and rehydrate, says Dr. Sarah Kiss. Inexpensive and a great stocking stuffer, apply this on clean skin morning and night and layer it with a great face mist and moisturizer for optimal skin hydration.
Calm App subscription
Have someone that needs a little extra calm in their life? Dr. Katie recommends the Calm App for that daily dose of calm. The app provides tons of different tools and options with mood check-ins, sleep stories, ASMR, guided meditations, relaxing music, soundscapes and more. Use daily for best results.
Paderno 4 Blader Spiralizer
If you’re looking for a way to sneak more veggies into your diet – this kitchen gadget is a must! This is Laurie’s absolute favourite tool for spiralizing zucchini to swap out pasta, fancy up a salad or make any vegetable and fruit fun to eat! Don’t stop yourself at zucchini – you can really spiralize anything – think carrots, sweet potato, beets, cucumber, cabbage, red onion, peppers and apples!
Plan your passion project (and organize your life) with this thoughtful gift. Dr. Whitney recommends this planner to lots of her patients. Organized by week with extra room and checklists for work / personal projects and of course, doodling. Each month ends with personal reflection and goal setting for the next 30 days.
For the Kids
Did you know that a great white shark can weigh as much as 15 gorillas? Dr. Becky loves the National Geographic books for her kids, and we think the “Weird But True” series is pretty cool. Jammed with whacky facts, short stories, and bizarre photos it makes a great coffee table book for kids and adults alike.
Sunrise Alarm Clock
Now that the days are getting shorter and morning’s are getting darker (and harder to crawl out of bed!), this sunrise alarm clock has definitely made Dr. Morgan’s Christmas list this year. This clock mimics the natural brightening light of a sunrise, gradually increasing in intensity which gently stimulates your body to wake naturally.
Hidrate Spark 2.0
Is proper hydration on the resolution list? This water bottle tracks your water intake by the mL and sends updates directly to an app on your phone. The coolest part? It glows when you’re falling behind on your intake. Perfect for the tech-lover in your family.
That’s the round up for 2019!
Happy Holidays from your Rooted team,
