This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. Staying healthy is a full time job. Even with all the help out there, it still comes down to making smart choices. It’s not always easy but what do you have to lose, except a few years. Quality of life is directly impacted by your choices and it gets more serious the older you get. Scary.
It’s all about feeling good and looking good. When your body feels good you strut around, about a foot off the ground, with a serious sense of funk. I want to find the easiest way to achieve that goal. You don’t have to run a daily half-marathon to stay in shape, but that probably wouldn’t hurt anything except your knees. My knees feel like they’re filled with jello so running from anything other than gangs or police is out.
Simple Health Rituals
- Plan a Healthy Diet: It’s really not that difficult to plan a healthy diet. Plan for the week so your meals are worked out before you go to the store. Decide ahead of time how to use your fresh fruits and vegetables in multiple dishes. Save money by not throwing anything out. It’s just as silly as revisiting the grocery three times a week. A little planning beforehand can go a long way.
- Exercise: Again, no one is saying you have to dead lift a thousand pounds or compete in an Ironman Triatholon, just get out there and do something. Start of with something you can handle so it’s not too daunting. Make a beginning goal of three times a week for forty-five minutes. Do something you enjoy. If exercise isn’t enjoyable, there’s a chance you won’t stay the course. It can be as easy as a afternoon surfing or a walk on the beach. If three days or forty-five minutes is too much to think about, drop to the floor right now and do five push-ups. There, you’re on your way!
- Take Nature Made® Vitamins and Supplements: If you’re bones aren’t healthy, it’s going to be difficult to build those muscles. Trust your bone health with Nature Made Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc. Adequate calcium, along with the pre-mentioned well-balanced diet, plays an important role in supporting bone health and may help reduce risk of osteoporosis later in life. Magnesium helps support healthy bones.† Zinc is an essential mineral necessary for numerous reactions in the body.† Each tablet of Nature Made Calcium, Magnesium & Zinc provides 333 mg of calcium, 133 mg of magnesium, and 5 mg of zinc as well as 200 IU of vitamin.
