I’ve partnered with Procter & Gamble and Source Naturals as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
Being a busy mom of two, I’m always on the go. “Always” is my normal. Not only do I homeschool my daughter, but I also frequently plan homeschool field trips for students and run a successful online blog for families in Southern California. With all that’s required of me as a mom, wife, teacher and business owner, I must stay healthy for everyone who needs me.
So, here are the top things I do to proactively support my health, especially in the wintertime and now that it’s the New Year.
Get A Good Night’s Sleep
Exercise Is Key
Take A Daily Supplement or Two
When my son was a baby I learned about importance of digestive health. He was frequently irregular and fussed a lot. His naturopath recommended that I give him a probiotic to normalize his digestive track. Since it worked for him, I thought I would try it too.
Several years later, I discovered that they now make a probiotic that also has a prebiotic in it. This is brilliant I thought since prebiotic fiber is helpful in increasing the good bacteria that already lives in your digestive track.
I personally take Align Dualbiotic Gummies as a prebiotic + probiotic supplement. Aligns’s gummies are naturally flavored and contain less than 1g of sugar per gummy. Having both a pre and probiotic in one is helpful, and the results seem to be a settled system.
Source Naturals® Wellness Formula® is also another helpful daily supplement that I like to take. It contains a high-potency vitamin C plus 25 more key nutrients and time-tested herbs all in one product. The Wellness Formula® supports my immune system, especially during cold weather and physical stress, and is formulated to boost overall well-being.
The vitamins and herbs found within the Wellness Formula also encourages normal mucus production in your respiratory system, keeps white blood cells healthy from free radicals, promotes a healthy response to stress, and supports a healthy respiratory system. That’s a lot of health benefits packed into one tiny bottle!
Increase Your Fiber Intake
As I’m getting older, I find it harder to get enough fiber in my diet. Blame it on traveling, being out and about with my family, or whatever else you may, I simply forget to eat the daily recommendation of 5 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. That’s why I turned to the #1 doctor recommended fiber brand Metamucil to increase my daily fiber intake and eat Metamucil Fiber Thins as a part of my overall diet.
Their delicious crunchy fiber thins provides 5 grams of fiber with just 100 calories per serving (4 g total fat). They also help satisfy my hunger when I’m on the road a lot or leading a long field trip. Metamucil Fiber Thins also contains 20% of the daily recommended value of fiber.
Stock Your Pantry with Winter Essentials
As we all know, winter is the hardest season to stay healthy. Of course, I wash my hands frequently, avoid getting “run down”, stay away from others who may not feel well and get enough rest. But it’s still not 100% foolproof.
What are some tips and tricks that you use during the winter season to help stay strong and healthy? Please share your ideas in the comment section below. For my best tip, I recommend shopping at Walmart or heading to WalmartHealthSupport.com for all of your immediate and long term health needs this season!
