As a later in life first time mom, who now has a fifteen-year-old son, retirement is in my not too distant future. All the more reason I want to be healthy and fit so my husband and I can continue to hike together and travel whenever and wherever we want. I also want to be healthy enough to enjoy my future grandchildren. And, I want people to think I’m younger than I am.
I’m not ashamed to admit it when my son tells me his friends think I’m in my thirties… it feels good. Although looking like I’m in my thirties while I’m actually in my fifties is nice, feeling like I’m in my thirties is even sweeter.
That’s why I love Nature’s Bounty so much. Including Nature’s Bounty vitamins and supplements along with smart, healthy lifestyle choices, I am a better me. And that’s what we all really want, right? We just want to be our best, healthy selves. Because no matter what, we’re always better off healthy.
Small Victories Equal Big Health Results
I’m making little changes every day in my life that are going to equal big health results…
I’m eating healthier. I’ve made it a goal this year to eat less meat and eat more raw foods, like fruits and vegetables.
One of my favorite things to eat is a superfood salad. It’s loaded with good for you foods like green cabbage, kale, blueberries, cranberries, cashews, carrots, edamame, pomegranate, and sunflower seeds.
I’m also eating less sugar and fat, and drinking more water and detox drinks or smoothies like beet, carrot, spinach, cucumber, and apple detox drinks. What I put into my body is essential and one of the victories that equal significant health results.
Take Nature’s Bounty® Ultra Strength Probiotic10
Provides advanced support for optimal digestive balance and healthy immune function* through 20 billion live probiotic cultures, at time of manufacturing, and 10 probiotic strains.
I’ve been taking Nature’s Bounty Probiotics for awhile now, so I’m excited to see how the Ultra Strength Probiotic10 helps my digestive balance even more.
I also recently learned from Dorothy Hamill (Nature’s Bounty spokesperson), who was on The Talk earlier this week, that Ultra Strength Probiotic10 not only supported digestive balance but a healthy immune function* as well.
Dorothy is still a wonderful role model and an inspiration for all girls and women.
Take Nature’s Bounty Adult Multi Gummies
A delicious way to get the nutrients your body needs. Each serving provides 100% Daily Value or more of four essential B Vitamins, Vitamin C and Vitamin D to keep you going while supporting your immune system and promoting bone health.*
Even though I’m making healthier food choices, I am a busy mom, so I may not always eat enough of the foods that contain the vitamins I need for a healthy immune system and good bone health, so an adult multivitamin is important. And, who doesn’t love gummies?
Whether it’s a hike with my family in the Smoky Mountains (since I live near them), getting 10,000 steps a day, or practicing yoga (great for the mind, body, and soul), I am making exercise a top priority. I want to be heart-healthy, more flexible, and stronger.
Take Nature’s Bounty® Fish Oil
Supports cardio and circulatory health.* I’ve been taking Nature’s Bounty Fish Oil for several years now. My doctor actually recommended I take it.
Another way I plan on being healthier is to spend more time with my family and friends, as well as more “me” time. My work keeps me in front of a computer screen for many hours every day. I realize that I’ve become “disconnected” from real life.
I want to change that and become more spiritually and socially connected, so I’m disconnecting from technology more. I’m going to make a schedule for work and stick to it. And Sundays are going to be more tech-free.
Take Nature’s Bounty® Lutein Blue
Speaking of technology… Did you know that digital devices emit high amounts of the high energy blue light which may induce oxidative stress to the eyes? Nature’s Bounty® Lutein Blue is a unique eye health supplement that helps filter damaging blue light from electronic devices.*
Helps protect eyes from the damaging blue light of electronic devices.* Clinically studied formula to support eye health.*
I’m most excited about the Lutein Blue. I spend a lot of hours a day looking at my computer screen, my iPad, or my iPhone, and I know that I put a lot of stress on my eyes. Another great reason to disconnect from technology that will equal substantial health results.
Get More Zzzzzzzz’s
It is recommended that you get at least 7 hours of sleep a night.
Confession: I’m lucky to get 5 hours of sleep a night. And it’s been taking its toll on me. Another reason I need to disconnect from technology. So 30-minutes before going to bed I close my laptop and put my iPad and iPhone away.
I then spend 30 minutes doing something just for me. Whether it’s read a book, give myself a mani or a pedi, or take a bath, I do something that relaxes me before going to bed.
Take Nature’s Bounty® Melatonin
A terrific choice if you experience occasional sleeplessness or jet lag, or if you want to improve your quality of rest.* Melatonin is a clinically studied ingredient that helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.*
I do a lot of my work at night, so I’m taking the Melatonin to help me fall asleep faster instead of sitting in front of my laptop (which contributes to my eyestrain from the damaging blue light from my electronic devices). See how it I’ve come full circle here?
Are you noticing how my new healthy lifestyle choices are interconnected?
While we all might have the same goal to be healthy, we all have different visions of what healthy actually looks like – whether that’s spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, or mentally.
I think all these aspects of our lives are connected to make one beautiful and healthy YOU.
If you make small healthy changes every single day, they will add up to give you the health results you need to live a long, happy, healthy life.
That’s why I will celebrate my small victories each day because they equal BIG health results overall!
