Changing the World Begins with You
Changing the World Begins with You

We love Jay Shetty’s take on how to connect in today’s modern day, disconnected society.


Five Minute Journal
Five-Minute Journal

We know it can be difficult to find the time to journal everyday.  Five Minute Journal is our favorite life hack for documenting our days.  Every day includes an inspirational quote, and a few brief, positive prompts to start our day with intention, and end our day with reflection.  We love how jotting our thoughts in the five minute journal brings a sense of joy and peace to our days in five minutes or less.

Scented Crow

We are loving the Baltic Amber candle by Scented Crow Candles.  Scented Crow candles are carefully handcrafted and hand poured by a husband and wife team who live deep in the woods of Northern Idaho.  The candles are one hundred percent soy wax with a pure cotton wick, and are housed in a beautiful amber tumbler or glass apothecary jar.  We loved the Baltic Amber candle as a subtle, glowing, and wonderfully fragrant accompaniment to our nighttime meditation practice. 

As a special gift to Literal Shyft readers, Scented Crow is offering a 10% discount code (use checkout code:  READERS).

Flourish Body Wash

Flourish Natural Body Care is a luxurious body and skin care line that utilizes unique essential oil combinations to evoke strong feelings of harmony and grounding.  Founder Kirsten Connor believes in the power of using locally grown, Vermont farmed and wild-crafted ingredients, as well as fair trade and certified organic oils and sugars.  All of their products are free of silicones, sulfates, petro chemicals, and artificial fragrances and colors.  We couldn't get enough of their Patchouli Tangerine + Sea Salt Calming Hand and Body Wash, as well as their Rosewood Infusion + Angelica Luxurious Hand and Body Lotion.  Both left us clean, soft, and zen for hours.

Back Jack

Our meditations, bottoms, and backs have been saved by the BackJack Chair.  Instead of discovering surrender during meditation, all we were discovering was a sore back and tight hamstrings after twenty minutes of sitting.  The BackJack chair transformed the process by allowing for firm back support, and the possibility of sitting with either legs straight ahead or cross legged, allowing us to find peace instead of pain.  The sturdy cushion provides a comfortable seat.  The entire chair is covered in a soft fabric that is as durable as it is relaxing.  The BackJack chair is available in a variety of soothing colors to fit any decor or setting, and also comes in a folding version for easy storage and transport.  You can find the chair, along with a variety of other meditation and yoga tools, over at www.sagemeditation.com.
