4 Items You Need In Your Boost Kit
Whether you are tired, hungover, jet-lagged or a mix of all 3, sometimes you need an extra boost, and that is ok!
Here at Cone, we swear by creating a small but efficient 'boost kit'. Our boost kit consists of a few items that can help you physically and mentally get into the right mindset.
We are not fans of 'forcing' work when someone does not feel well, but the purpose of the kit is help transition us from that sleepy state to a more active and energised state of mind.
The kit does not need to be huge, but something that is easy to slip into your bag.
So, to give you some inspiration and place to start we wanted to share with you what is in our kit!
Rituals: The Ritual of Dao Relaxing Serum
The Rituals 'The Ritual of Dao Relaxing Serum' is is a life changer. Whether you are struggling with focus and concentration or have a headache that will not budge. The serum is magic. It is especially useful if you are someone who tries to avoid taking tablets to reduce pain as this is for external use. Directly apply the serum to your temples and behind your ears. For someone who looks at their screen a lot, this helps so much.
When I first tried the serum, I was sceptical, but after about 10 minutes I was converted!
Phizz 'The Original' Rehydration + Vitamins and Minerals Tablets
It sounds odd to include tablets in this post but hear me out! Phizz explains that 'around 60% of your body & 75% of your brain are made up of water. Your body loses 2-3 litres of water during an average day, which needs replacing to maintain normal function'. Phizz, who was inspired by the World Health Organisation’s rehydration formula, helps to correct this by helping water get to where it needs to be in the body. Phizz helps combat fatigue as it is full of 'vitamins & minerals to help unlock your body’s energy'.
Phizz tablets are super easy to get hold of. They are available on Amazon Prime, and they have proved useful in times of jet lag, and slow Mondays. Simply mix with water to create a power boosting beverage.
This addition is vital to our kit. Although these tablets are compared to other medicines on the market, the hybrid of vitamins, minerals and rehydration formula makes it somewhat unique.
MONQ Portable Essential Oil Diffuser
Monq is a portable essential oil diffuser. To be super clear, Monq IS NOT an e-cigarette. It is an essential oil inhaler/diffuser. It contains no tobacco, nicotine, artificial ingredients, GMOs, gluten, diacetyl, or propylene glycol.
You know those essential oil diffusers that you can get for the home? Well MONQ is a portable version of those.
So how does it work? Breathe in through the mouthpiece and then slowly, breathe out through your nose. The experience itself is pretty calming.
We love the active and sleepy MONQ's. They are small and lightweight so awesome for your boost kit.
We had to include tea, because you if you’ve been following us for a while you’ll know we love to use tea to enhance performance! Tea is a small but mighty addition to the kit.
Peppermint tea can calm your stomach and is an overall soothing tea that requires no milk so is excellent for on the go tea pit stops. It is also known to be a great stress reliever! Invest in some high-quality peppermint tea; you really will be able to tell the difference.
Feeling inspired to curate your own kit?
Start small. You really do not need too many items in your kit. We do not want you to make you feel that you now need to go on a shopping spree.
You may even have most of these items at home. Other useful examples of what could go into your kit are: coffee, your favourite essentials oils and a facial spray (Lush do awesome ones),
It just needs to be something that you can turn to when you need a boost! Experiment with what works for you.
