Generation Z(en): Feel good products for wellbeing
If you’re 24 or below, congratulations you’re part of the Generation Z gang! According to Millennials, Generation Zenner's are characterised as environment activists that are no strangers to the latest gadgets, but most importantly, we take a holistic approach towards our wellbeing and recognize the importance of maintaining it. With that in mind, I’ve pulled together the top 6 wellbeing technological advancements that every Gen Zen needs to invest in.
1. TikTok's Famous Sunset Lamp
Imagine a place where the sun never sets and it's golden hour all the time- well you can now. Designed to replicate the soft, warm, orange hues of the sunset, you can now experience it from the comfort of your own home. It's not like we're wishing to go abroad anytime soon or anything. The soothing effect is scientifically proven to elevate your mood while capturing the uncaptured that we never seem to experience in the UK.
2. Friendship Lamps for faraway friends
It can be lonely moving out for the first time, especially when you’re in a long-distance relationship or have besties that live miles away, but purchasing a set of friendship lamps will make you feel like you’ve never been apart. Once connected to the Wi-Fi, this unique product will allow you to communicate with your faraway friend wherever they are in the world- quite literally at the touch of a lamp.
3. Buddha Board for Zen drawing
This zen-inspired drawing pad is designed to reflect the motto ‘living in the moment' which allows you to paint whatever comes to your imagination, using nothing but a paintbrush and water. Who would have thought painting without paint could be satisfying? Once the water evaporates, as will your doodle, leaving room for endless creative masterpieces.
4. Sauna Blanket
We all love a sauna, but I think we can all agree that we just tolerate the heat for the sake of all the benefits it replenishes our bodies with. But this struggle is no longer, thanks to the sauna blanket that uses infrared technology to warm our body from the comfort of our couch. Not only does it relax the mind, but it also circulates blood flow, brightens the skin and burns calories.
5. The Shift- Anxiety Breathing Necklace
This nifty gadget doubles up as a scientifically proven breathing tool and a sophisticated statement necklace. Focused solely on the biology behind breathing, it is endorsed by psychiatrists and inspired by Ancient Eastern wisdom to decrease blood pressure and stress hormones when our 'fight or flight' response comes into play.
6. Minature DIY Zen Garden
Feng-shui your room has been given a whole other meaning thanks to the miniature desktop zen garden. The best part is that it comes with various zen elements that each contribute in their own way to design the garden of tranquillity- you know how us control freak gen zenner’s are.
