6 wellness gadgets for a wholesome residing house
In addition to daily rituals, gadgets can also improve your well-being.
While we use the same four walls as an office, gym, kitchen, beauty salon and whatever, it is clear that our homes need to be adapted to maintain a healthy environment for us in the long run. Space-saving, decorative and health-promoting are important features to look for when looking for new helpful additions to our accommodations. If you want to create a real haven of health during these challenging times, investing in some wellness equipment for the home is an absolute must.
From office equipment to sound therapy massagers, here are 6 great tools to future-proof your home and give it the ultimate wellness makeover.

It is no longer an issue: standing is in fact far better for your health than sitting. Especially when we work long hours from home (where we may not all have the most ergonomic office furniture), sitting can cause serious long-term damage to your back, blood vessels and posture. However, if you work at a standing desk, you will stay alert and full of energy and will not only support your health but your productivity as well. This high desk from DeskStand, originally from Cape Town, takes wellness to a new level by using therapeutic birch wood to give your home office a more natural and calming atmosphere. It makes work a lot more enjoyable.
Eating healthy is more important than ever today. Air fryers are nothing new, but they have become an incredibly effective and useful staple in any healthy kitchen. If you can deliciously cook meat, potatoes, tofu, vegetables, and more without the need for oil, your dishes can still taste great without unnecessary fat and calories. If you don’t already have one, we recommend South Korean brand LocknLock for a wellness device for the home that not only cooks great but also looks ultra-chic on a kitchen counter.
This home wellness device may look small (and yes, a little weird), but it is a surefire way to take your home a big step further to become an innovative wellness spa. Combining western science with ancient Chinese tradition, this small massager emits therapeutic sound frequencies to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, accelerate muscle regeneration, relieve stress and much more. It’s a drug-free, cordless, non-invasive form of therapy that you can do anytime, anywhere. As an innovative yet natural remedy, this is probably one of the few things that Elon Musk, a yogi and a Kardashian would approve of.
Pollution is a ubiquitous issue that Bangkokians have to deal with. But while we all have even more challenges to face now (working from home, taking care of the after-school kids, and generally trying not to get the widespread virus), get your concerns about bad air out of the way by taking the equation easily placing this BlueAir air purifier in your home. Thanks to its state-of-the-art Swedish technology, it is an extremely efficient, quiet, smart and customizable device that will keep your home fresh, clean and breathable. The sleek and stylish design doesn’t make it a feast for the eyes to be on display in the house.
Check out the slim and minimal Xiaomi Walking Pad for a sweaty and swanky addition to your home workout. The running pad is a much more compact type of treadmill and helps you take your daily steps from the comfort of your living room – without the need for a large, clunky, and unsightly exercise machine. Don’t be fooled by its simple and minimalist design: the walking pad has an LED screen to display your training data, as well as a remote control and an app.
Japanese technology, zen, and cuteness come together in this small hydroponic gardening tool (i.e. bottomless). The Akirina plant pots, a project developed by Olympia Lighting Fixtures based in Tokyo, use state-of-the-art LED technology with light wave tuning to achieve optimized plant growth even without sunlight. To start your own little vegetable garden indoors, simply plant your seeds with their liquid fertilizer, turn on the LED lights after germination, and then harvest within 40 days. You can now grow your herbs and small vegetables right in your kitchen at any time of the year.
