Healthy entertainment at home is important to our happiness and wellbeing, especially when we are spending more time there than normal. Consider these ideas for fun and entertaining activities you can do at home.

  • Blog Post
     This is the fifth post of a multi-part blog series for people spending more time at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, or for any other reason, called A Stay at Home Wellness Guide. The series provide tips and common sense for how to live a happier and healthier life addressing how we eat, exercise, work, shop, enjoy entertainment, and further our education just to name a few important things. While the inspiration came from the COVID-19 pandemic, the ideas presented are applicable for healthy living regardless of current circumstances.

    Luckily, there are a lot of great options to consider. From exercise, creative activities, staying in touch with our friends, and giving ourselves a little gift from time to time, entertainment at home doesn't have to be hard.

    We want people to take care of themselves during these unprecedented times. With that in mind, here's a new entry in our Stay at Home Wellness Guide. This one is all about entertainment at home, so read on to find out how to have a little more fun!

    Arts and crafts are fun, satisfying and stimulate the creative parts of our brains.

    Healthy Lifestyle Entertainment

    While we're all spending more time at home, engaging in entertaining activities that promote a healthy lifestyle is important. Our mental and physical health are taking a beating because of all the time spent indoors, particularly during the winter. So, don't forget to think about at-home wellness through entertainment.

    Some good examples of things we can do that promote a healthy lifestyle include taking online exercise classes or simply exercising on our own. A class gives us the opportunity to interact with people outside of our family or house group. This kind of shared exercise stimulates our mental health as well as our physical health.

    Another thing we can try when it comes to exercise is to get a group of friends together and set up a Zoom meeting. Then we can all exercise from the safety of our home but we're sharing the experience and helping ourselves maintain a healthy lifestyle.

    Taking online classes is a great way we can push our brains a little bit. There are quite a few major universities around the world that offer online classes for free. Taking online classes is a way for us to learn new things and keep ourselves from going stir-crazy while we're stuck inside.

    Creative Entertainment

    Finding something fun to do while we're stuck in our homes is a great way to promote at-home wellness through entertainment. Creative activities stimulate our brains. They also distract us from boredom or troubles from which we may need a break.

    Examples of creative entertainment activities we can do from our homes include crafting and cooking for fun. Crafting doesn't have to mean quilting or something else our grandma might have done. We can get inspiration from Pinterest or Etsy, for example, for some fun projects to create decorations for our homes.

    Crafting is great for at-home wellness. It stimulates the creative parts of our brains. It's also a lot of fun and satisfying when we've produced something at the end that we can be proud of.

    Along those lines, another creative activity is to take on a house project that we've been putting off for a while. Get out the paintbrush and put a splash of color on a wall or fix the loose handle on the door. House projects can be rewarding and make us feel better about ourselves and our homes!

    Cooking for fun is a great way to get creative and get some entertainment at home. We find that trying new recipes or unusual ingredients is fun and rewarding. There are also lots of online classes or YouTube videos from well-known chefs that are great to follow along with.

    Friendly Entertainment

    One of the keys to a healthy lifestyle at home is to stay in touch with friends. We can't see them in person as easily and we can't have them in our homes, but we can make sure we still talk to them.

    Engaging in activities with friends is a crucial part of at-home wellness. Talking to friends on the phone or via Zoom is not only entertaining, but it's also important for our mental wellbeing. We're all isolated, so we have to make sure we keep in touch with people we value in our lives.

    It's not just about chatting, of course. Set up group gatherings of friends for a quick coffee or tea at the end of the workday. Organize game night on video chat.

    The shared experience of laughing and commiserating with a group of friends doesn't have to stop just because we're all socially distant. Grab a laptop or phone, set up a Zoom meeting, and invite the crew, no matter where they are.

    Playing games together is also entertaining and good for our wellness at home. Get the crew together online and play pretty much anything you would have done at home. Pictionary, charades, and other games that don't require one board or set of pieces work the best, but this is a great chance to let our minds get creative!

    Therapeutic Entertainment

    A little therapeutic entertainment can go a long way to helping us stay sane! What do we mean by therapeutic entertainment? Well, let's be honest, this is retail therapy all the way.

    Shopping from home can really make us all feel good. We don't need to spend a lot, of course, but pampering ourselves with some online shopping can boost our spirits.

    Browsing our favorite online stores isn't quite the same as walking through a shop and trying things on. But an hour spent clicking through pages of fun things we'd like to buy can make us all feel a little more human.

    Treat yourself every now and then. A little shopping from home is entertainment in itself.

    At-Home Wellness Can Be Improved If You Focus on Entertainment

    As you can see, improving our at-home wellness is all about taking a little time to focus on entertaining ourselves. Whether we're promoting our healthy lifestyle or getting a little retail therapy by shopping from home, we mustn't forget to give ourselves a little boost with some fun every now and then.

    We need to stay in touch with our friends. We need to get creative to stimulate our minds. We need to stay active.

    Wellness is our choice. We believe that even in these hard times, we need to look after ourselves. So, check out our website for more great ideas in our Stay at Home Wellness Guide series.

Reseller Order Policy Change
Effective December 1, 2023


SupplementRelief.com has been an Authorized Reseller (Team Member) of FirstFitness Nutrition (FFN) since April of 2020, selling FFN products directly from our website to our customers, handling the payment processing, order fulfillment, and customer service.

Effective December 1, 2023 FirstFitness Nutrition REQUIRES ALL Authorized Resellers, who have formerly sold FFN products DIRECTLY from their OWN website, to refer the PRODUCT PURCHASE to the Reseller's FFN Team Member website.

You may continue placing orders on SupplementRelief.com through December 31, 2023 for the remaining products we have in stock.

SupplementRelief.com's FFN Team Member website is:

supplementrelief.firstfitness.com

On the top right of every page you will see our Team Member name to confirm you are on the correct FFN Team Member website:

Your FFN Team Member: SUPPLEMENTRELIEF.COM

Please BOOKMARK this new website supplementrelief.firstfitness.com for future shopping. You may begin using the Team Member website immediately.

You may also place your order directly over the phone by calling either SupplementRelief.com at 888.424.0032 or FirstFitness Nutrition's Customer Support line at 800.621.4348. Please let them know that your FFN Team Member is SUPPLEMENTRELIEF.COM.

You may continue to use this website (supplementrelief.com) for FFN product descriptions and other Wellness content from our Blog, Education, or Recipes, but on December 1, 2023:

  • The "Add to Cart" button will change to a "Purchase on FFN Team Member Website" button, and your browser will automatically open a new page on our FFN Team Member Website to purchase the product. You can stay on the new site and shop for ALL other FirstFitness Nutrition products without returning to this website.
  • If you formerly had a LOGIN ACCOUNT on SupplementRelief.com, it WILL NOT WORK on the FFN Team Member website. You will be given an option to create a new account on the FFN Team Member Website. You WILL NOT NEED your SupplementRelief.com account on this website anymore, unless you want to see your Order History for orders you placed on SupplementRelief.com in the past.

How Does This Affect Future FFN Purchases?


This means that as of December 1, 2023:

  1. You may purchase FFN products only from an FFN Team Member website.
  2. ALL ORDERS will now be PROCESSED and SHIPPED directly by FirstFitness Nutrition. The company name on your credit card statement will no longer say SUPPLEMENTRELIEF but will now say FIRST FITNESS.
  3. You may optionally create a new account on our FFN Team Member website, or you can shop as a Guest— both options work fine. Setting up a new account on the FFN website is recommended to make placing future orders easier, as FirstFitness will already have your information to process your order once you log on to our Team Member website.

FirstFitness Nutrition's Order Policy


  1. Delivery using UPS in 3 - 5 Business Days
  2. 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
  3. Shipping Charge is a minimum of $10 or 8.5% of the retail price of products purchased.

Order Policy

Please email if you have questions or need assistance.

Payment Processing

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit cards.

Payments are securely processed through industry leader Authorize.net of which SupplementRelief.com is a Verified Merchant.

We DO NOT retain or store your credit card information after the purchase. We DO NOT share your information with anyone. We DO NOT auto-subscribe you to anything. Your information is YOURS.

The charge will appear on your credit card statement as SupplementRelief.com with our phone number (888) 424-0032.

Shipping & Handling

A safe and accurate address for delivery must be provided at the time the order is placed. Once an order has shipped, SupplementRelief.com is NOT responsible for lost or stolen packages CONFIRMED BY THE CARRIER to be delivered to the address provided for the order.

Since COVID-19, and the ensuing economic challenges in the USA economy, we respectfully ask that you allow some additional time for delivery for the carriers (USPS, UPS, and FedEx). Most orders still arrive on time, or near on time, but some may run late. We make every effort to get your order packed and into the carriers hands the same day, or by the next business morning if your order came in later in the previous day after carrier pickup, but we have no control over any delays that may happen within the shipping carrier's delivery system. Please order earlier for the time being if you are time-sensitive.

Orders that contain only FirstFitness Nutrition products have a shipping fee automatically calculated based upon the actual shipping weight of the items purchased. The charge ranges from $4.95 to $14.95.

For orders with NuMedica products you may choose from the shipping options below on the Order Checkout form in the Shipping Information section on the first line that says Choose Shipping Method.

Shipping Options

Country Option Schedule Cost
United States Standard 3-6 Days $4.95
United States Priority 2-4 Days $9.95
United States Free 7-10 Days $0.00
International FedEx International 4-7 Days $79.95*
International GlobalPost International 12-21 Days $39.95*
*International shipping costs may be higher depending upon package weight and destination. We will contact you for your approval of the additional amount if this occurs.

SupplementRelief.com may use the email or phone number provided on your Order to call or text you regarding Order Status or to inform you of changes to the Order Policy.

When your order ships we will send you a confirmation email with the delivery tracking information.

International Shipping

Shipping anything these days internationally is expensive. COVID resulted in more rigorous customs import processes, and now with much higher energy prices, international shipping rates are higher.

FedEx is the most reliable and faster carrier, at least for now, but they are expensive. Our FedEx international shipping fee is a minimum of $79.95. It usually makes more sense to get several months of supply (3 months or more) in one order to minimize the shipping expense per order over time. While the added weight of additional items may increase the base shipping price by a little (usually 10-25% depending upon total weight and destination), it is usually not by very much relative to shipping an additional small order later.

We also offer a lower-cost international shipping option using GlobalPost International for $39.95. So far, they have been reliable in getting packages correctly delivered but it takes 2 - 4 times as long to get the package delivered. Packages may take longer to process in the receiving country's customs process and status updates may not be reported as quickly. Please be patient if you choose this option to save money.

Some International orders may cost more to ship depending upon weight and location. If that happens we will contact you first and get your approval for any additional charge before proceeding. International orders may also be subject to additional customs fees and duties/taxes based upon the destination country's customs import laws and policies. These fees are NOT known or included on our order form and are typically charged and collected by the shipping carrier when they are delivering the product to it's final destination once the package has cleared the destination country's customs process. It is recommended that the buyer research custom import fees for the products/services they are importing beforehand to be aware of potential, additional fees.

Shipping Refrigerated Products

Our manufacturers formulate their probiotics to ensure their products retain viability until they reach the consumer. Probiotics that are recommended to be refrigerated remain so until the time of shipment, then shipped alongside an ice pack to ensure potency (Note: Ice pack will not arrive frozen, and product may not arrive cold). Orders placed on a Thursday-Sunday requiring cold shipping will not ship until the following Monday.

Cancellations

If your order has not been shipped yet, you can request a cancellation. Your original purchase amount will be refunded within three business days. If your order has already shipped, see Returns and Refunds.

Changes, Returns and Refunds

If you want to make a change to your order, please email us as soon as possible so we can make the change before your order ships. If your order has already shipped you may incur additional shipping charges for the second shipment and the return label for any products returned.

If we have made a mistake on your order, or the product arrives in a damaged or unusable condition, we will make every reasonable effort to right the situation quickly to your satisfaction.

We accept returns subject to when the return is requested and the condition the product is returned in. All returns must first be authorized by contacting us. In your request, please let us know why you are returning the item(s). We will respond promptly with authorization, the return address, and a return shipping label if appropriate.

If your order has already shipped you can return any un-opened products within 30 days of receiving your order for a 100% refund of the price paid for the product, less the actual shipping charges we incurred to get the product to you originally and then returned, less a $10 restocking fee. Un-opened means the protective seal on the bottle or container, or the shrink-wrap on the box or kit, has not been broken and the product has not otherwise been damaged in any way. You may use the original packaging for the return or acquire your own. We will provide the return shipping label. We DO NOT accept returns for NuMedica products once the protective product seal has been broken.

Upon receipt of returned product(s), we will refund your credit card within three business days for the product(s) returned.
