Weekly Theme: Cold Weather Prep

This week we are reviewing accessories that you’ll need as the mercury struggles to climb higher than 55. To start off, a critical accessory that keeps your lips healthy, chapstick. Now we have suggested this before, but we haven’t found any other chapstick that protects from the wind and cold like Kiehl’s. This chapstick has shea butter (a standard) and Squalane, an olive derivative that helps keep your lips protected from external stressors which you’ll need as the wind picks up and temps drop.

Available on Kiehls.com for $9

Alpha Brain by ONNIT

We normally don't go into nootropics or performance enhancers on here, mostly because it takes a while to try them and really relay the effects. We have given Alpha Brain a true shot. After a month of use, we can convey that, while it's a little pricey, it does actually improve focus and memory recall. Writing all of the time can be a grueling process, especially if your brain isn't firing on all cylinders. We have tried Alpha brain, specifically in the afternoons after lunch when focus is at an all time low, and have found that it has increased our afternoon productivity by at least 60%, which is huge. The recommended dose is 2 capsule and after trying to pinch it to 1, 2 really is where the effects are noticed. Now, this is the drug from limitless, and we haven't solved world peace, and discovered a new start, planet or miracle cure, but a little mental boost in when we feel ourselves fading is always useful. We also tried gaming with this (playing Overwatch) and found that quick decision making and reaction times were a bit better, increasing gold medals earned and competitive rank :).

Rumble Roller Foam Roller

This foam roller is not for the faint of heart, nor is it for those who don't enjoy some pain during their recovery sessions. However, for all the pain it deals out, it does some miraculous work releasing tension in hard to fix knots. It comes in various sizes and an option for extra firm (for the masochists). We like the compact version because it can fit in a bag and wont break the bank.

Available at DicksSportingGoods.com for $45.
