Review by Walking Expert Wendy Bumgardner: Lumo Lift
Maintaining good posture throughout the work day is tough for most of us, but can make such a big difference in how you feel, not to mention helping to prevent back pain. Enter the Lumo Lift, a wearable bit of technology along the lines of a Fitbit but designed specifically to remind you to sit up straight. It's all part of integrating yoga practices into your daily life.

Classic for a reason. Simply the most versatile, useful water bottle there is. There are a bunch of different options for Klean Kanteens but this is my favorite: 16 oz is not to big and not too small, insulated for hot or cold drinks, wide mouth makes it easy to clean.
