When you are a parent, you do not sit still. As a Mom, I am the Housekeeper, Nurse, Chef, Entertainment Coordinator, and the list goes on and on. Doing this for 3 children means I need to maintain a healthy immune system, keep my energy up, and reduce stress. This is where Nature Made and my own initiative have come into action.
In the past couple of months, apparently I have picked up the germs my kiddos have been bringing home from school or playtime, and I have gotten sick more frequently. This means I have not exercised as much as I have wanted, simply felt sluggish, and since we were planning a trip to an Orlando theme park, I decided it was time to take Steps To Better Health.
My first step was to visit Walmart and pickup a bottle of Nature Made Vitamin C. I need all the help I can get for immunity and these tablets are delicious and chewable. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps neutralize free radicals in the body† and also plays an integral part in the synthesis of collagen, which helps support healthy skin.†
Second step in this process was to add a supplement that would help with my energy. During my shopping excursion, I also grabbed a bottle of Nature Made Vita Melts. The Energy formula is made in great tasting fast dissolving tablets and contain Vitamin B12. I like that this product can support cellular energy production in the body.† FYI both these bottles went into my luggage.
Plus, I can feel confident about the quality of these products since Nature Made is the #1 Pharmacist recommended supplement brand in 9 categories* as well as the nation’s #1 best-selling brand for quality vitamins, minerals and supplements** to help support nutritional gaps.
In regards to the third step, it was all about the shoes. Lately my feet have been hurting between wearing flip flops and flats, and I wasn’t getting the support I needed. This was slowing me down, so after investing in a pair of memory foam flip flops, I can really tell a difference.
My fourth step has been make better food choices like salads and fish. I also avoided really rich foods on our trip, which made a big difference in how my stomach reacted. This allowed me to relax after eating.
Finally, my last step has been to practice better time management to get back into an exercise routine. I wasn’t the greatest at this before I got married, so imagine how I am now with 3 kids. However, I have found that with a little advanced planning and determination, I can fit it in. I have already walked 6 days in a row since our trip, added in hand weights to work on my arms, and already feel less stressed.
