This morning, I woke up and tackled some much needed work awaiting me. Then, I proceeded to get two little misters ready, head off to an outside the home job and play taxi driver for the different school and activity times. After which, I ran home, made dinner, headed out the door for class and collapsed onto the couch before prepping for my nighttime workout. This crazy busy life means my body can use all the immune system support it can get, especially to make sure I can keep up with these two heartthrobs.
Whether you find yourself running from one place to another or you’re looking to supplement your life with a bit more Vitamin C, I have put together some simple tips for you to get that immune support.
1. Make Time for YOU
As a busy mom, I know the difficulty you have when trying to make time for yourself and the hours in the day seem nonexistent. By carving out that time and focusing on YOU, you will find the benefits are immeasurable.
Practical Application: Set the kids up with their favorite movie while you catch up on your favorite television show. Spend some time on social media and reading a good book. Sip tea as you watch the sunrise.
2. Get Enough Sleep!
This tip can be a bit trickier for a multitude of reasons. Everyone is different when it comes to sleep requirements for their particular lifestyle and body. Do your best to set specific deadlines for yourself to ensure that you are in bed for the night or that you wake up at a certain time in the morning to ensure that you can get what you want accomplished, but also get adequate rest time.
Practical Application: Maybe you trade roles with your spouse one night so that he or she takes over the whole bedtime routine so you can wind down. Call a friend and ask for her help watching your little ones while you catch up on some much needed sleep (especially if you have a non-sleeping baby at home!
3. Drink Water
Since the beginning of the year, I have made it a habit to not only have a cute water bottle with a straw (I drink more water for some reason), but to fill a pitcher with water and try to drink the entire container by the end of the day. As I see the water decrease, I feel like I have accomplished a small goal and I know that drinking water helps to improve my mood and energy levels naturally. Not to mention the added bonus of my kids seeing me drinking water and setting an example in that way!
Practical Application: Not a fan of water? Try pumping it up with fresh fruit or flavored ice cubes. You might also consider warming cups of hot tea and honey in lieu of water by itself.
As part of my daily routine, I take two capsules of 500 mg of Ester-C® daily. Ester-C® delivers up to 24-hour immune support 365 days a year. By being proactive about immune health and taking a supplement for immune support, I am able to keep up with my daily activities and with two busy little misters!
