I recently had the chance to attend the Alive Expo and to tell you that they have loads of information would be an understatement. From what I figured out, this event is held in Atlanta each year and both large and small companies come to tell you what they have to offer.
I was surprised at the number of booths there.
They had lotions and potions, foods and oils... the best part was that if you are totally new to the "health and wellness" scene, many of these companies were giving out samples for you to try before investing in them. They really stand behind their products!
Broxton and I went in with an open mind to see what all was there and boy, we left talking about healthier options! If you follow me on Instagram, you saw some of the booths represented since I posted a few photos. (If you don't follow, head on over... I will wait!)
So... what did we learn?
Well, for starters. They had one company there that asked if I needed to relax. I looked at her like she was crazy and pointed to my two children. She told me to sit for a minute. She had Broxton sit beside me and of course, Savannah was in the stroller. I was not sure what to expect, as I did not see any massages being given out there, but low and behold. She grabbed this big bowl looking thing, told me to close my eyes and relax. (I did, but honestly, I kept peeking to check on my children. Another reason I kept peeking? No joke... I was about to fall asleep from her relaxation technique and I didn't want to snore and scare people!) She was with ISTA Sounds. They have monthly meetings for you to go and relax. They also had CDs for sale. She didn't pressure me to buy one and instead told me to watch a few you tube video's. If I was still interested, I could then purchase one. I loved the fact that I wasn't pressured into anything.
Another company there was selling home sauna's. (Actually two different ones if my mind serves me correctly. One was a wooden one that came up to your waist, the other was a tent like one that came up to your neck. You can see the silver one on Instagram since Broxton really wanted to see how it worked.
Other companies there were showcasing healthier drinks. (I was really impressed with the drinks and gelato!) Of course they had medicines, essential oils, lotions and more. Like I said, it was FULL of information and in a very laid back atmosphere.
