Drink 80 ounces of water daily. Adding lemon or lime to your water is a great way to make it a little more interesting! Hold yourself accountable and purchase a reusable water bottle and keep track of how many you have to drink each day to reach your goal.
Multivitamin: Try and find a food-based multi. These are easy to digest and absorb.
B complex: B vitamins have an important role. They help convert our food into fuel for our body, providing more energy throughout the day.
Adrenal Support: Continued stress causes fatigue of our adrenal system. There are many ways to help keep the adrenal system strong and well supported. Some examples include: Vitamin C, Magnesium and B vitamins. There are also a few herbs that are helpful but my favorite is Rhodiola Rosea, which can be taken as a capsule or tincture.
Fish Oil: Fish oil supports healthy cholesterol levels and also is a great mood booster!
Vitamin D3: When choosing a Vitamin D3 supplement, it should have at least 5,000 IU. Not only does healthy levels of Vitamin D3 help maintain a health immune system, it is also another great vitamin to help with mood.
Get Your Labs Checked!
These basic labs are so important to keep on top of as a woman. They are frequently missed so be sure to ask your doctor the following:
- Iron (hemoglobin, ferritin)
- Vitamin D3
Schedule Some “ME” Time!
This is easier said than done but it will make a huge difference! It doesn’t even have to be more than 30 minutes. Some days take longer breaks if you can, other days you may only get 5 minutes of deep breathing. Here are some examples of things you can do to relieve stress:
- Exercise. Yoga is a wonderful way to calm your body down and rejuvenate.
- Reading. Grab a book or magazine find a quiet place and let the world round you melt away for a little while.
- Laugh. Get a few girls together and have an hour or two of fun and laughter. It does wonders.
- Take a bath. Buy some Epsom salt and your favorite essential oil and take a 15-minute bath before bed.
Try and get to bed by 10pm every night. Having a full 8 hours of rest is ideal
