Must-Have Items For Back To School, From Home
Not saved by the bell! The 2020 school season is right around the corner, but since we're in the middle of a pandemic, heading back to the hallways is not the reality for many students. Remote learning is currently the landscape for the majority this year. Since we're all navigating our "new" normal, I decided to take the guess-work out of items that a parent may or may not need to add to their "Back To School" shopping list.
I got the chance to display these unique products on CBS 2 Chicago. There was an array of products! I included products covering different price points and age ranges-- there's something in this list for everyone. Below is a detailed breakdown including the video of what was featured and links to purchase some of those products.

TouchPoints use gentle, haptic, micro-vibrations to alter the brain's stress patterns and bring you back to logical, rational thinking which allows you to think more clearly and focus on the task at hand. Along with reducing stress in over 70% of users in just 30 seconds, TouchPoints have been shown to help improve focus by 50% in a double-blind placebo-controlled study.
