Here’s What You Need to Know About Liveli

Nutrition
Personal Growth

Real talk: I have an intense (and notorious) relationship with caffeine—specifically coffee. Even when I cut back, I keep coming back for more. From battling that dreaded midday slump to trying to fall asleep, my caffeine addiction has always affected my “healthier” lifestyle... and my mood. So, when a sample package from Liveli was recently sent to my office, I was intrigued. 

First thought: Great branding.
Second thought: Will they actually do anything for my brain, body, and sleep? 

Being in the wellness industry (and having a husband who is all about researching natural supplements), brain-boosting nootropics are always a topic of conversation. I’ve tried a few different, natural pills to get me energized and help me catch a few Zzzz’s but so far, nothing has helped curb my caffeine addiction and hit the pillow *extra* hard. With a few friends who swear by Liveli, I decided to give their All in System nootropic trio shipment a try for a month to see if they could improve my wellness routine.
 

Sleep Peacefulli™

These supplements have had the biggest influence on my every day. I’ve tried everything from melatonin to essential oils and CBD oil, but getting a solid nights sleep without feeling groggy and irritable is virtually impossible. I tried Sleep Peacefulli,™and I’ve seriously never slept so well. To be honest, I am obsessed. Featuring ingredients like Valerian Root, Chamomile and GABA, I take Sleep Peacefulli™ about an hour before bed when I’m ready to disconnect, unwind, and drift into a dream-like state. The best part about these magical green pills besides being well-rested? I don’t wake up with that sleep supplement hangover feeling. I am alert and aware the moment my feet hit the floor. Plus, as a traveler with a ton of redeye flights, these pills are my not-so-secret supplement for getting rest on those long, uncomfortable flights.

Restore Dayli™

A natural skeptic about supplements that increase cognitive function and energy, I started taking Restore Dayli™ to see if I could cut down on my morning vitamin routine–and all the cabinet clutter. Packed with vitamins (like Vitamin D and Vitamin B12) and minerals—plus botanicals and nootropics—I started to feel naturally more energized within just a few days. Taken after my post-morning workout with a meal, I also noticed my overall mood improving! A more natural way to digest energy to kickstart my entire day, Liveli’s “super vitamin” continues to supercharge my routine. Balance achieved!

Described as “a nootropic performance activator,” these pills are all about helping you stay alert, focused, and on top of your game. With a blend of ingredients to energize the mind and body—like Green Tea Leaf Extract, B12, and Korean Ginseng Root Extract—the ultimate test comes in the form of getting past that mid-day slump without desperately needing a sip of coffee. I found (and continue to find) myself more naturally alert and focused without needed anything extra to get through my busy schedule. I feel sharp and steady with zero no caffeine shakes. 
 

Liveli’s nootropics have improved my wellness routine by helping me fall asleep easier and naturally boosting my energy all day long. These All in System pill packs are my daily superpower secret to success!

Sweat Redemption: 5 Tips for Getting Back Into Your Hot Yoga Practice

Yoga

Expert Advice

If you’ve ever taken a hot yoga class, you know it’s always going to be one thing—outrageously hot. Not the “let’s hang by the pool and get that sun-kissed glow” kind of hot either. I’m talking that “I can't believe I have this much sweat in my body” and “I may or may not pass out” kind of hot. It’s nothing to mess around with, and after a year or so of not being able to go, it’s easy to forget just how serious that heat can be.

To get the maximum enjoyment and benefits out of your heated yoga classes, you need to prepare yourself before and take care of yourself afterward. Luckily, I’ve been taking some classes (sweating enough for the both of us) and I’ve listed my five favorite must-dos to help you readjust to your heated classes and get back to the hot yoga summer that we all want.

1. Go at your own pace

Heated classes are difficult in nature. The normal difficulty of regular poses is mixed in with the added challenges of sweating and dealing with the humidity and the heat (at times, I’ve seen the thermostat climb to 108 degrees—yikes!). Depending on what type of yoga class you’re taking (sculpt, Bikram, power vinyasa), the difficulty level and temperature are going to vary. It’s also important to remember that each person in the room is going to practice in a way that’s unique to them. Hours slept, hydration levels, food intake, and different lifestyles are all contributing factors that make our practices different. What you practice on your mat is your own––trust your body and only do what feels right to you.  And remember, it’s okay to take breaks!

2. Hydrate like your life depends on it (honestly, it might)

The rise in temperature mixed in with the humidity that we all know and love creates the perfect recipe for sweating—like A LOT. You go into a heated class dry and come out feeling like you just took a dip in the pool. Before heated classes, I had no idea it was physically possible to sweat that much. If you’re going to a heated class, especially after a long break, it’s easy to forget just how much you might sweat. Is it possible to lose that much water if you haven’t consumed it first? Trust me, going into your heated class super hydrated is going to make a world of difference and help you feel good throughout your practice. And don’t forget to take some sips of H2O while you’re practicing!  

3. Nourish your body

Heated classes are challenging, but I can’t stop going. Nothing quite compares to overcoming the challenge— and experiencing the cleanse my body feels after I’m done. It’s the perfect blend of hard and rewarding, but I couldn’t do it if my body wasn’t properly nourished. On the days I know I have a heated class booked; I like to make sure I am eating right. I make sure to take my vitamins and fuel my body with fruits, vegetables, and my favorite superfood shake. I hold off on food about an hour before my practice, so I feel comfortable. After the class, I like to replenish with a big protein shake (boosted with collagen to aid with muscle recovery and skin elasticity). There is no one-way path for properly nourishing your body but making sure you’re fueled for the challenge of a heated class is essential for getting the most out of your practice and feeling good on and off your mat.

4. Replenish those electrolytes

Increasing and maintaining your water intake on the days you take a heated class is important, but sometimes you need something a little extra. If you’re sweating that much, you’re basically an athlete (at least in my book) and if you’re performing like a rockstar yogi, you need to hydrate like one as well. That means replenishing those lost electrolytes. Reward yourself and your body for the hard work and treat yourself to your favorite drink. I switch off between electrolyte-boosting drinks and coconut water depending on what I’m in the mood for that day. Adding these to my post-practice self-care routine has helped me feel more hydrated after and ready to take on the world again after especially sweaty classes.

5. Bring the right equipment

Usually, a yoga mat is all you need for your practice––but heated classes are a different ballgame. I’ve gone with just a mat, and I’ve slipped all over the place. Let me tell you, there’s nothing worse than having sweat drip all over the place while you’re trying to hold a pose that makes you grip your mat for dear life (never again). Make sure you bring a towel to place over your mat, this will help with support and grip. Bringing a smaller towel is also a good idea. You can use the smaller towel to dry yourself off during water breaks or whenever you’re feeling just a bit too sweaty. This is a small step that makes a world of difference during those super-hot classes.

So, there you have it. Five of my favorite tips (more like lifesavers) that have helped me readjust to those heated classes I love so much. Getting back into it is a challenge for us all, so know you’re not alone. No matter where you’re at in your practice, remember to be kind and gentle to yourself––celebrating your health and your body’s ability to do what you love. We’re all just getting back out there, together.
