Purchases to Improve Your Life: Volume 2

Purchases to Improve Your Life is going to be a monthly series compiling the most useful items and tech that I have discovered and use.

There’s tons of useless technology and items out there designed to specifically waste your time. You won’t find me recommending any video game consoles or movies.

The things I’ve hand-picked below are designed to improve the quality of your life in terms of productivity, business, health and fitness. If you want to become a winner, these are for you.

These bad boys will help you reach your goals.

Please note: for 100% transparency I am not paid to endorse any of the programs below, I do however participate in Amazon’s Affiliate program.

Quest Nutrition Protein Bars


Quest protein bars are by far the BEST tasting protein bar on the market.
High in protein, gluten free and affordable.
Quest offers these bars in a huge range of different flavors including lemon cream pie, chocolate brownie, vanilla almond crunch, strawberry cheesecake & many more.
I generally eat 1 bar per day as they're super convenient to carry around for when you may not have time to get in a proper meal.

If you haven't tried Quest bars before, or would like to check out the wider range of flavours I recommend getting an assorted pack of 12 here.

Merkur Safety Razor


Every male should learn how to wet shave.
Since switching to a Merkur razor, badger hair brush and shaving cream roughly a year ago from a conventional electric shaver I've began to actually enjoy shaving.
The blades on these shavers stay extremely sharp for months and offer the closest shave possible.

Check out the Merkur long handled safety razor here.

Crest 3D Whitestrips - Teeth Whitening Kit



White teeth in 7~ days by only using whitening strips for 30 minutes per day... sounds too good to be true right?
I've tried a number of different home teeth whitening kits, the majority simply leaving me with sensitive teeth or no visible results after running the full course of whitener.

Crest's whitestrips on the other hand are the only DIY home whitening solution I have found that's cheap, easy to use and offers great results.

Before you opt for an expensive teeth whitening procedure at your dentist give the Crest 3D whitestrips a try here.

Bucky Luggage Ultralight Sleep Mask


In order to optimize your sleep it is essential that your bedroom blacked out.
Instead of purchasing and installing blackout curtains an ultralight sleep mask is the next best solution!
As I've been doing a decent amount of travelling lately this ultralight sleep mask has allowed me to get high quality sleep when flying too.

I’m SJ. I’m a fitness enthusiast and published author. I transformed my body from a skinny fat 135lbs with 18% body fat to a solid 192lbs at 8% body fat. I became qualified in a field I was passionate about. I founded several online businesses that allow me to pursue ideas and projects in my life that I am passionate about without having to constantly worry about money. I published several eBooks explaining the training and dieting techniques I used to achieve the body I have today. I learnt a plethora of new information on dieting and fitness by reading and applying what I read, to find out what does work and what doesn’t work, because as I’m sure you’ve noticed the health and fitness industry is full of non-sense claims and BS. I found out what was true and what worked for me and applied that knowledge. And you bet I had fun during the whole process.
