It’s easy to be good when you’re oming and sipping herbal blends in a spa’s tearoom. But once you’re back in the digital danger zone (a.k.a. the real world), all well-being wishes get checked at the door.
This year take control with a not-so-extreme makeover.
Slim & Sage’s snazzy geometric plates (pictured) do more than impress dinner guests. The design, based on research from Stanford, Harvard, the Mayo Clinic, and the American College of Cardiology, helps you control portions and reduce caloric intake.
Tuck one of NorCal artist Sophie Leininger’s Magic Carpet Ride yoga mats in the corner of your closet for a little encouragement not to skip this week’s session. Each mat is sustainably printed from one of Leininger’s painted designs.

Master aromatherapists and specialists in traditional Chinese medicine helped develop The Spa at Mandarin Oriental’s therapies. Start with a consultation to determine personal and current state of well-being. Treatments use tailored oils and techniques for a truly bespoke experience. Bonus: Take home your blends to add a little oomph to your morning routine.
And let the sunshine in.
