Sometimes, as a mom, you find yourself feeling a little bit drained. It’s so important to make sure everyone gets everywhere they need to be and that everyone actually gets there wearing pants and shoes and all of the essentials. It’s hard to ensure that all of the laundry gets folded, that all of the meals get made, and oh yeah, maybe taking some time for yourself, too. All too often, as moms, we push ourselves to back burner– we make sure that everyone in our family is taken care of, but when we run out of hours in the day, we tend to neglect ourselves. I have quickly started to realize that filling up other’s cups when yours is empty can be quite the challenge, so I’ve been making intentional time for self-care, and I can’t wait to share my tips for easy self-care ideas (when you’re pressed for time), starting with taking your vitamins!
For me, one of the best ways I can practice self-care is simply by taking my vitamins. It’s something that takes just a few moments each day, but keeps me going for my family.
I know that my diet doesn’t always contain as much B12 as it should, which is one of the reasons I find supplementing so important. Nature Made® Energy†† B12 Adult Gummies contain 1000 mcg vitamin B12 per serving. Plus the cherry and mixed berry flavors seriously can’t be beat.
I also love the tangerine flavor of Nature Made® Vitamin C Adult Gummies. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps support the immune system and helps neutralize free radicals in the body.† During the busy months of the year, I need all of the immune support that I can get!
The thing I love about taking my vitamins is that caring for myself doesn’t have to be complicated. It literally takes seconds to open up the jar of vitamins, take my recommended dosage, and get on with my day knowing that my Nature Made® Energy†† B12 Adult Gummies is giving me the nutrients I need. These are things that really matter to me, and it’s a small act of self-care I can easily take care of even when I’m short on time.
Diet and exercise are a big part of taking care of yourself, too, but I don’t have time to make it to the gym on a regular basis. One of the ways I manage to take care of myself is to keep a yoga mat near my bed, so whenever I have a chance to do a few calming poses, whether it’s before bed or when I first get up, I’m prepared without having to search for my yoga mat or take a ton of time for a full workout. For me, these few calming moments at the beginning or end of the day are really helpful for making sure I’m feeling my best.
I also love keeping a blender bottle handy so I can get breakfast in every day. It’s much easier to mom without grumpiness if you’re not hangry, and getting in some breakfast is my way of staying out of the hanger zone. A great, protein-packed shake is a great way to indulge in the morning without taking a ton of time out of your busy day. I love knowing that when my protein shake contains iron, Nature Made® Vitamin C Adult Gummies contain plenty of vitamin C. Vitamin C aids with the absorption of iron†
I also know how important laughter is for getting in the right mindset to start your day, which is why, as I do a few yoga poses and drink my breakfast, I listen to a funny podcast or watch my favorite YouTube channels to start off the day with a laugh. Laughter is great for staying in a great mindset!
My biggest indulgence for self-care takes a little bit longer than the others. Every week, I try to make time for a hot bath with a favorite bath bomb or some relaxing bath salts. I know that it takes a lot of time, but it definitely gets me in a better mind-set for the week ahead, and for that reason, it’s definitely something I try to stay on top of. Knowing that I’m taking an hour of my time to improve my mood and recharge after hard work is important to me!
For me, it’s about making sure that I’m making the right choices for my self-care, and that means I rely on things like Nature Made® Adult Gummies. I love that Nature Made® has the 1st Gummies to receive USP verification. The U.S. Pharmacopeia Convention (USP) is a third party nonprofit organization that verifies products for purity, potency, and quality. The thing that makes this so great is how reassuring it is to know that my vitamins contain the nutrients I expect them to! It definitely makes them a gummy I can trust.
