I love the fresh slate that a new year gives, but for years I’ve wondered if New Year’s resolutions are worth setting. In the past, I’ve set ambitious resolutions, picked a word of the year, dreamed big about my goals for the year ahead, and spent significant time reflecting on the past year. I even weighed in on how to keep New Year’s resolutions. However, given how wild and unpredictable life has been over the past 12 months, it seemed like 2021 was calling for something different when it comes to new year self-development.
I decided to focus on small, incremental changes this year rather than trying to tackle the new year as a whole. So, the opportunity to partner with Babbleboxx for their Resolution Reset themed box came at just the right time! Let’s dive into how to start the new year with some healthy habits and practices.
Here are 5 products Babbleboxx introduced me to recently that I’ve integrated into my daily routine for the new year:

Physician’s Choice Collagen Peptides Review
I’m not overly a supplement person unless there’s a specific problem I want to address and I never willingly want to mix something gross and gritty into my drinks (especially in my cherished daily cup of coffee). However, when some loss of bone density concerns came up for me last year, I became more in more interested in taking a collagen supplement. In my research, I was also delighted to read over and over that consuming a collagen powder, like Physician’s Choice Collagen Peptides, has been clinically shown to given healthier-looking skin (and hair!). Physician’s Choice uses clinically proven digestive enzymes (DigeSEB) to make sure that the collagen is effectively absorbed by the body. I’ve been adding a scoop to my coffee every day for a little over three weeks now. Although I can’t say I’ve seen any drastic wrinkle reduction, I do notice that my skin looks more hydrated (and my hair looks healthier) which is enough of an incentive already to keep consuming a collagen supplement! I prefer to add this collagen powder to a warmer liquid – it dissolves super quick and I truly can’t taste it!
Physician’s Choice Probiotics Review
I’ve also added the Physician’s Choice Women’s Probiotic to my day as well. Living at my mom’s during the state of transition my life is in has taken a toll on my overall wellbeing. I’m not sleeping or eating as well as I’m used to and it’s much harder to find time and space for self-care. Taking a probiotic is clinically shown to promote healthy digestion, boost the immune system, and provide antioxidant support among other benefits. I love that the women’s probiotic from Physician’s Choice helps cover some of the gaps in my health that I can’t realistically prioritize otherwise right now.

Veestro Review & Coupon
Veestro Coupon Code: BABBLE25 for 25% off any order
Valid through 3/31/21
Speaking of building better habits, my diet is something I desperately need help with. My habits show that a quick, convenient meal will almost always win at the end of my day over something healthier that might take longer to prepare. With Veestro, you don’t have to make that compromise. Veestro meals are 100% plant-based that come frozen, fresh, and fully-prepared right to your door. Truly, I was shocked to see how affordable this vegan meal delivery option is. I’m just beginning to explore adding vegan options to my diet, so there are a lot of new tastes and textures for me to get used to, but I think Veestro would be especially awesome to people who are already vegan. I appreciate that Veestro offers an affordable way to expand my palette while keeping convenience top of mind.
The Best Book to Build Better Habits
In reflecting on years past and desiring to be better in the future, I’ve been thinking a bunch about how to build habits. This year, I really want to tap into the power of small shifts in my everyday life that will help me move forward. The Habit Trip: A Fill-in-the-Blank Journey to a Life on Purpose by Sarah Hays Coomer (she’s a Mayo Clinic Certified Wellness Coach!) was the exact book I need to begin fulfilling this. This isn’t just any book. It’s a workbook style, fill-in-the-blank, habit-changing journey that’s designed to help you reflect on and analyze your approach to the day. The gentle prompts allow you to take micro-steps that add up to major lasting changes. Whether I have time to consume one page or twenty, I always walk away with something to positive to hold with me throughout the rest of the day. I’ll report back with a more in-depth review when I’ve gone through more of it. Stay tuned!
Kerasal Multi-Purpose Nail Repair Review
I’m not going to lie to you. The Multi-Purpose Nail Repair from Kerasal was the product I was most excited to try in this Babbleboxx. I trained very heavily in ballet growing up and my toes were shoved into pointe shoes for many, many hours each week of my life for years. I wouldn’t give up that experience for the world, but it did some major damage to my feet. Ever since, I’ve been SO embarrassed by my toenails (like, I cannot believe I’m actually posting these photos on the internet, haha). I’ve been to two different podiatrists who told me my discolored, dry, cracked, damaged toenails that wouldn’t grow were just from the aftermath of dancing and that there wasn’t much I could do. I thought I had tried every over the counter thing out there, so I was SHOCKED when I actually noticed this nail care product made a difference in appearance after using it consistently. From my personal experience, I can tell that my toenails are smoother, less discolored, and have even grown over the course of the week. I’ll definitely continue to use this!
Kerasal’s clear formula penetrates the nail to improve the appearance of damage to fingernails or toenails from issues like Psoriasis, gel manicures, aging, or fungus. You can find Kersal Multi-Purpose Nail Repair at Target, too!
Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair Review:
I’m just not made for cold weather. In the winter, I struggle with dry skin everywhere. Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair has really helped me tackle the issue on my feet the past weeks. I put it on before bed, then put socks on, and in the morning the skin is so smooth and hydrated. In the name of self-care, I’ve been working on adding more at-home pedicures into my routine and this has become a necessary step in my personal pedicure procedure. I can confirm that this exfoliating moisturizer lives up to the claim of being able to offer visible results in 1 day!
