Goop Wellness
Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle brand isn't just some celebrity publicity project- she hired the best doctors and experts in the field to help design products specifically for the working woman, after asking herself a simple question: "Why am I so tired all the time?!?"

Goop Wellness provides vitamin and supplement regimens that address the acute needs of women going through specific situations- there are recommendations for everything from juggling too many different balls in the air to motherhood. Avoid feeling overwhelmed at the vitamin aisle and let Goop help you get your groove back instead.

 

Vegan Kale
Adding more kale to your diet should be a no-brainer; studies have shown that kale is the new queen of the greens. Kale is low in calories, high in fiber and vitamins, and it has zero fat. Plus, kale is filled with powerful antioxidants like omega-3 fatty acids, which help fight arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disorders. We can't wait to make ourselves a salad and serve up some nutritional benefits!
Kit Coffee
Based in Newport Beach, California, Kit Coffee is worth trekking to if you're in the area. Kit Coffee is an independent and locally owned multi roaster coffee shop that serves delicious coffee, pastries, and toast. However, it's the atmosphere that truly makes Kit Coffee special- it's a place of gathering, and a welcoming environment for all. Pour yourself a nice hot cup of coffee, relax, and enjoy the sense of community you'll find behind these small walls.
With a view like this one
With a view like this one, creating a meditation room is a breeze. As you can see, you hardly need to put anything in the space to make it feel tranquil. With its simple pillows and candles, the room is designed for those who really enjoy meditating, but having a bench looking out to the mountains and sea means that even those who aren’t experienced at meditating can easily relax and take a break. Any time you have such a beautiful view like this, you simply have to draw attention to it.
Sand gardens are a popular idea
Sand gardens are a popular idea when it comes to meditation room design. The idea is that creating lines in the sand helps calm the mind down and build some focus. This design takes it to a whole new level, by placing a large sand pit directly into the floor. The lack of color and decorations helps keep the focus on your own meditation or the people you are sharing the space with. The beige sheer curtains blend well with the room and allow a small glimpse of the outside world without allowing it to dominate the space. However, you can choose to pull the curtains aside to take advantage of the high rise view.Sand gardens are a popular idea when it comes to meditation room design.

Extravagant meditation room
This extravagant meditation room is a really unique way to use drapery fabric. Bunched up around the ceiling and settling down to the floor, it appears that you are sitting inside a large nomad’s tent. There’s plenty of plush seating for a large number of guests, and choosing the monochromatic patterns gives the space texture without colors. If you were to do something like this in your home, you might be concerned about using real flames in the candles. Instead, consider the flameless LED candles, which still flicker like candlelight but don’t have the danger of fire. If you don’t have a large space like this in your home, you could also purchase a tent that could decorate this way, leaving it up as long as the weather allows
Show of Support
An attack on one is an attack on all. We love this show of solidarity by Dutch men after a hate crime on a gay couple. In today’s increasingly divided world, shows of support facilitate unity, and remind us to work together to improve our world. The movement, #allemannenhandinhand, has been embraced worldwide, as political leaders to celebrities share pictures holding hands and offering their support. Shyft stands hand in hand with all those standing up to homophobia. #allemannenhandinhand
Walk With Me
Last week, a new documentary called Walk With Me premiered at the South by Southwest Conference in Austin, Texas. Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, Walk With Me tells the story of a monastic community learning to practice the art of mindfulness with Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh. Filmed over three years, in their monastery in rural France and on the road in America, this film showcases a community grappling with existential questions as well as capturing the everyday routine of monastic life. Members of the community have given up all their possessions and signed up to a life of chastity – all in pursuit of  a deeper connection to themselves and the world around them. According to the directors, the film also immerses the audience in nature, in an attempt to shine a spotlight on the “poetry of the present moment.” We can’t wait for the wider release of this!
