We write for people looking for the best health and wellness gear (not for brands). All products and services are independently selected and tested to provide recommendations you can trust. You can read more about our process here. We may receive commission on purchases made from some of our links, but that’s not why we’re here. We just want to help you find good stuff.

What if you had $1,000 to spend on your health?

Welcome to Wellness Diaries. In this series, we send readers $1,000 to splurge on any product, service, or experience—as long as it’s something that can enhance health. Any leftover cash is donated to a charity of the diarist’s choice.

This time, we’ve got Netflix’s Love is Blind star Raven Ross, who we selected as one of the most influential people in wellness of 2022. When you go viral for squeezing in a quick, pod-friendly workout sesh while your faceless date pours his heart out, it’s a sign that you’re a force to be reckoned with in the wellness world.

Raven spent her $1,000 on a lymphatic body massage, a breathwork meditation class, and a TheraFace Pro.

In the spirit of spreading influence and wellness, we’re opening up Wellness Diaries to all Nessie Readers. Click here to enter for a chance to win $1,000 to spend on health and wellness.

Raven Ross

Meet Raven!

She’s a master Pilates teacher and women’s wellness advocate based in Dallas, Texas. Her stint on Netflix taught us that she doesn’t have a single bad angle, but also, more importantly, that she’s as sincere about fitness as she is about finding love. She uploads workout vids to her Youtube channel every week, so go see what she’s all about!
