How I'm Prioritizing My Heart + Immunity in 2016 [+ a giveaway!]

Friday, February 5, 2016

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of an Influencer Activation from Influence Central.

Since the beginning of 2016, I've been focusing on taking better care of myself on a daily basis.  

I've been doing a great job with cooking healthier meals and exercising a few times a week but I wanted to take care of myself even more so after checking out the Nature Made microsite, I've determined 2 "Need States" that best suit my life and wellness goals!  By the way, their site is awesome so I highly recommend you sign up and be a part of the Nature Made Daily Boost program! 

Nature Made has a great selection of quality vitamins and minerals to help support nutritional gaps.  Walmart is a great place to purchase Nature Made vitamins, minerals, and supplements regardless of if there's a sale or not! I love that I can go in to shop for groceries and have a wide variety of vitamins to choose from. 

The first "Need State" I'm focusing on is Heart Health & Function.  In order to focusing on that need, I've incorporated Fish Oil into my everyday routine.  Each morning I take my Nature Made Fish Oil supplements. Fish oil helps support a healthy heart by providing EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.  Since I'm nearing my 30's I want to make sure I take care of my heart now while I'm still young rather than waiting till I'm older and out of shape. 

The second "Need State" I'm working on is Immune System Support, which is why I'm taking Nature Made Vitamin C everyday to help support my immune system.  I can't stand getting sick and Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals in the body and plays an important part in the synthesis of collagen which helps support healthy skin.  

Vitamin C is so essential and it's found in many fruits and vegetables and it must be consumed and replenished daily.  Taking a Vitamin C pill everyday helps me meet my daily Vitamin C needs.  

Taking these every morning is a great way to start my day because I know I'm doing something that takes care of my health and body.  Every morning I take the first step to a brighter day! 

I am working extra hard to make sure I drink lots of water each day regardless of if I work out or not.  Water is important to stay hydrated and in addition to fish oil, water really helps my skin stay clear and blemish free!  

When I exercise, I'm not only helping myself physically, but I'm mentally blowing off steam after a long day.   Being on an exercise schedule also keeps me disciplined to lead a better lifestyle where I stay active on a regular basis.  

And I have some great news... Influence Central is hosting a contest where you can enter to win one of 20 $50 Walmart gift cards!*  The contest closes 2/15/16 and all you have to do is enter by choosing a social media sharing option from the social media amplification tools!
