Though it’s been no ordinary summer, Labor Day weekend is finally here. That means fall — and its myriad pumpkin spice items — is upon us, and cooler weather may put an end to some socially distant activities. Since there are only so many types of bread to bake and closets in your home to reorganize, The Real Deal’s staff has compiled a list of items to help real estate pros with all their non-deal related, personal goals:

1. For the aspiring international business person…

Rosetta Stone

There are so many reasons to speak more languages: improved memory, global business opportunities, impressing your in-laws, digging into Netflix’s foreign film options… the list goes on. And for those who are scared of commitment, Amazon is offering a three-month subscription. You’ll improve your eavesdropping abilities in no time.

2. For the time when you can’t take your client to Per Se…

“Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat”

One silver lining of the pandemic may turn out to be a home cooking renaissance. And “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat” provides a foray into chefdom. Samin Nosrat’s work is an engaging mix of story, chemistry, and, of course, recipes. Multiple TRD staffers attested that the book goes far beyond what you can learn in the accompanying Netflix show.

3. For anyone who wants to add literary critic to their resume…

“100 Years of the Best American Short Stories”

Fall means back to school (in some way or another) for kids, and this anthology will help you dive back into the most popular works of the most celebrated authors of the last century. Not every businessperson is a bookworm, but these cultural touchstone stories are a great way to ease into classic literature without committing to a thousand-page tome.

4. For the fitness lover who can’t stand another YouTube workout…

The Echelon Reflect Smart Connect Fitness Mirror 

Nothing can replace the change of scenery your favorite pilates studio offers, but the Echelon mirror can offer a pretty similar workout. Fitness mirrors have gained popularity lately as an easy way to substitute in-person workout experiences. Plus, it takes up less room than a Peloton and lets you admire your progress post-workout.

5. For the up-all-night businessperson who needs to get some rest…

YnM Weighted Blanket 

Good sleep is the foundation of a good work day. After years of staying late at the office and heading early to meetings or showings, many industry pros are still running on an old schedule. Take advantage of your lack of commute and grab one of these weighted blankets — which help calm even the most restless sleepers — so you can start off your work week feeling rested.
