Ok so yes 2019 is here and I have a resolution list a mile long! I know, it’s maybe cooler to not make one but I have a lot of goals this year for myself and for my business.
The most important thing I am focused on this year is to up my health and wellness game. I decided that as busy as I am I need to invest in some quality supplements and start exploring some different types of exercise that excites me.
I have posted a few of these on Instagram but I wanted to create a post that you could come back and reference and they’re all linked.
First I want to start with the women’s multivitamin I am taking from a company called Ritual. Ritual has engineered the perfect women’s multivitamin by figuring out what our bodies need most and they go above and beyond and use vegan Omega 3 from algae, which saves lots of little fishy lives.
The vitamin also tastes minty or like peppermint so there’s no gag reflex when swallowing it. And if I am being totally honest their packaging is super cool as well.
Next up is the FreshCap Mushrooms Thrive 6 powder. This powder comes in a 60 day supply and it does the following for you:
-Strengthen your immune system.
-Clear the fog, supercharge your focus and mental capacity.
-Shield you from disease and defend against illness.
-Finally get your body back in balance
I have known about the amazing benefits of mushrooms for years, since I was in nutrition school. I can honestly say I feel way more energized when I take this powder.
Let’s talk probiotic. I know just as well as you do that taking a probiotic daily is game changing, but I totally fell off the wagon with this one. I hate admitting that but I am human.
Our gut is the essence of our being and we MUST take care of it and replenish the bacteria necessary for it to thrive.
Next up is the Biosil (vegan) collagen supplement. First off Christie Brinkley takes this supplement and swears by it so If I can look like her as I age sign me up.
This is what you can expect to gain from taking this supplement straight from their site:
Collagen “plumps’ your skin from the inside out. It removes fine lines and wrinkles, and
prevents them from forming. In addition, collagen is essential for strong, healthy bones and joints. BioSil “turns on” the collagen-generating cells in your body known as fibroblasts.
Elastin gives your skin its ability to stretch and ‘bounce back’ (elasticity) preventing fine lines and wrinkles from forming. Elastin is also vital to the proper functioning of organs and eyes.
Keratin is the protein that’s packed into your hair shaft. It gives your hair thickness, body, strength, and elasticity. Plus, keratin gives your nails strength and clarity. Studies suggest the fact that BioSil stimulates the keratin-producing cells in your body known as keratinocytes.
Headspace is a meditation app that you may or may not be familiar with but it is super helpful no matter what stage you are at in your meditation practice.
I really love it because it’s guided and it gently reminds you when your mind can begin to wander to come back, and for me I totally need that.
You can adjust your time so if you only have 3 minutes or if you have 10 you can get something out of it.
Lagree Fit is a pilates inspired workout using the reformer machine and holy moly it’s an incredible full body workout.
Best part? It’s only 40 minutes!! I made a commitment to myself to try new types of exercise this year, I’ve been doing HIIT for 2 years and running here and there, but this is a game changer.
Reading: I am going to commit to reading 1 book a month this year. For me this is a hard one. I have a million things going on and when Jack is finally asleep the last thing I feel like doing is reading.
Essential Oils: I use oils daily and my diffusers are usually going in every room, but this year I want to really really use them. Like I want to try to use them for all that they can be used for whether that is medicinal or emotional. Stay tuned on this… I’ve got some fun EO ideas for this year!!
And last but not least I really want to be more present with my family this year. I want to put my phone down or away and connect with them. I don’t want Jack growing up always seeing his mom on her phone, because nothing is more important than my time with Jack (and Stefan LOL).
I hope this list inspires you to get out there and get your health and wellness goals met… or started!!
