Boosting Wellness With Headphones


In our advancing world, wearable technology is shaping and improving our wellness faster than ever before. Wearable technology comes in all forms including watches, fitness trackers, and of course, headphones.

Headphones were originally created as a means to listen to music privately, but today, we have the ability to use them to improve our health and learn about our bodies.

Yes, your headphones can actually boost your overall wellness!

Get In the Zone With Headphones

Headphones and hearables help us get in the zone. Whether we need to get pumped up to help push us through a workout or become calmed down to enter a state of meditation, headphones are your ticket to an age of improved wellness.

Whenever I need something to help motivate me to work extra hard at the gym, I always turn to music to get into the zone. A treadmill run or a bike ride becomes 10x more enjoyable when I'm listening to a specific playlist.

Likewise, when I need to get into a meditation zone, but I have all of these distractions from the day running around my head, music is miracle worker when I need to relax the most. With my headphones, I can tune out the world and really focus on calming my mind.

Sync With Your Heartbeat

Actywell's the One

headphones sync with your body's heartbeat to create the ultimate playlist for you. If that doesn't make your workout even more incredible, I don't know what will!

As your heartbeat gets faster, you'll automatically begin to listen to upbeat, catchy songs. As you calm down for a post-workout cool down, the One switches to soft, soothing melodies.

How amazing is that?! You get to use wellness technology that listens to YOUR heartbeat and knows your body so well. This piece of technology truly knows what you need in order to get the most out of your fitness workout.

About The Author, Lauren Bryant, Podcast Production

Lauren Bryant

is the Podcasting Assistant and Show Notes Writer for Wellness + Wisdom. She has a BBA in both Marketing and Spanish for Business as well as certificates in Advanced Business Communications and International Business from the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire.

Lauren’s wellness journey began at a young age when she joined her local YMCA swim team, The Wave, of La Crosse, WI. One of the most profound views on wellness that anyone has said to her was when she was an assistant swim coach for that same YMCA swim team.

One day during a practice, former head swim coach, Jon Brenner, shared with her that the most important thing about coaching the swimmers was that “It doesn’t matter if they become the best athletes in the world. What’s important is that we give them the tools and guidance they need to live a healthy, active lifestyle for the rest of their lives.”

Since hearing those words, she has taken it to heart to not only focus on continuously living her own healthy lifestyle, but to help others pursue their wellness goals as well.

Lauren is not only an avid swimmer, but a fan of running, yoga, cooking, and doing any activity outside that involves being surrounded by nature. In the Fall of 2014, she completed a long-awaited goal of walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain.

According to Lauren, wellness is about finding gratitude and joy in doing any type of physical or self-care activity that we love. Wellness means providing ourselves with self-love, good nutrition, and the inner peace that our individual minds and bodies need.
