Working out in the cold is not only good for you, but it also more effective! Our bodies use extra energy to keep warm, and stay warm when it’s cold outside. And once your workout is in high gear (running, cross-country skiing, ice skating, a brisk walk with your dog) you’re also going to start generating heat from the physical activity, doubling down on energy expelled and calories burnt.
Here’s a handful of products the gaan + co team is extra thankful for this November, including travel size vitamin packs, carry on cocktail kit, and the most amazing packable down pillow & blanket. #blessed
*At gaan + co. we look for products that align with our values - brands that are environmentally conscious, sustainable, fun and complimentary to any adventure. And, we love to support small, female-founded enterprises. We are not compensated for endorsing our product picks – but we sure do love ‘em!
The second-busiest travel day of the year will be Wednesday, November 27th, with 2.93 million people flying to reach their Thanksgiving Day destination. And the busiest travel day award goes to Sunday, December 1st, with an estimated 3.06 million people trying to get home. Which means airport waiting areas, bathrooms, lounges (and everything in between) will be full of germs. Read on for how to avoid this & make travel a breeze.
At gaan + co we count our blessings every day, but November is a standout month in the US where we show a little extra gratitude. We also may invest in a pair of extra stretchy pants (who’s with us?!?) to account for all the relaxation and mashed potatoes coming our way. Thanksgiving is a tradition that looks a little different in every household and there’s no wrong way to acknowledge the things and people you appreciate most in life. We’re tossing out some not so typical ways to transform your Turkey Day this year, and hopefully for years to come!
This #gaanguide is a special edition, dedicated to exploring the beauty and adventure of the Bahamas. If you’ve followed the news, you’re likely aware that parts of the Bahamas experienced immeasurable damage and loss as a result of Hurricane Dorian in early September. The islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama, home to thousands of civilians, were destroyed and many residents have lost their homes. These islands are currently closed for travelers while governments, relief workers and volunteers from across the world work to help those still there, and assess what remains for all those that have been displaced. We decided to take action, and since September, for every gaan + co product purchased, we’re donating wipes to those on the ground in Abaco & Grand Bahama who have minimal access to basic necessities.
Are you ready for some football? Us too! Tailgating season is in full swing and Saturday, Sunday and let’s not forget Thursday and Monday nights are prime opportunities to hang with friends, eat and drink, and cheer on your favorite team - all for love of American football fever.
Hurricane season peaks from late August into September with the most activity around mid-September in the United States. This brings floodwater mosquitoes that are typically 2-3 times larger than an average mosquito and spread harmful diseases. We will be donating mosquito repellent and deodorizing wipes during the months of September and October to families and relief workers in Abaco.
