Focusing On Emotional And Physical Health (Plus A Giveaway)

This is a sponsored post but all thoughts are my own.

I can’t believe it’s almost October! You may have noticed my absence here on the blog and I apologize but I had to step away briefly. The past few months have been a blur and I’ve found myself really struggling. I have went through physical and emotional exhaustion and pain, grief from a loss, the stress of a move (that we are still in the process of), and starting a new job, all while raising children through this continuing pandemic. The good news is that my older two are FINALLY back in school so it’s a little quieter here at my house during the days (well as quiet as things can be with a two year old!)

My health has taken a back seat to everything else going on and now that we are starting to get back into a routine, and the fog of grief has lifted some, I’m focusing on my health more. I’ve made some great strides over the past few weeks, both with my emotional health and with my physical health.

Emotionally I have started giving myself more grace everyday. As a type-a perfectionist who has anxiety, I tend to be extremely critical of myself so I’m really trying to give myself the grace that I give everyone else around me. I’ve also been working through the feelings of “losing” yet another summer and being okay with not having a bucket list full of fun accomplished (you know me and my outrageously packed summer bucket list every year! lol)

Physically, one of the things I’m focusing on is eating lunch every day. I used to skip breakfast and lunch almost daily and that is really a habit I’m trying to break. I’ve stocked my fridge with fruit that I’ve washed and cut in advance and provided myself with simple, easy meals that don’t require much time or effort to prepare. I’m also trying to go to bed earlier by spending less time watching television at night (it’s a work in progress…sometimes I go to bed a little after my kids and sometimes I’m working late or really engrossed in whatever series I’m watching and I stay up later than I should.) Taking Melatonin helps calm my mind and let’s me drift off to sleep easier.

Vitamins in general are beneficial, especially with the flu season starting up. With my life finally getting back to “normal” the last thing I want right now is to get sick. I like Superior Source Vitamins because of their tiny size and the fact that I don’t have to have water nearby because they dissolve under the tongue. Superior Source Vitamins are MicroLingual® so they work fast and are quickly absorbed into the body, dissolving in seconds. 

Superior Source Vitamins was kind enough to offer a giveaway to my readers just in time for cold and flu season. Readers will win a prize pack of the vitamins featured above which support immune health and clarity of mind. The pack includes:

Sleep & Immune which is formulated for better sleep and cold and flu protection. Zinc promotes recovery from the common cold and related symptoms. Vitamin D3, C, and elderberry are added for enhanced immune system support and Melatonin for a restful night sleep.

Just Women Iron which helps maintain optimum levels of iron in women. Ferrous fumarate helps restore iron levels in the body when levels are low. The ferrous fumarate salt may help reduce the chances of getting gastro-intestinal problems which are sometimes associated with other iron salts.

Melatonin which acts as a natural aid for healthy sleep regulation and the promotion of normal sleep cycles during travel. Chamomile is an herb that works together with melatonin to promote calmness and restfulness. 

Advanced Zinc which is an essential mineral required by more than 300 enzymes for the support of multiple systems and functions in the human body. In addition, studies have indicated that zinc promotes recovery from the common cold and related symptoms. Our Zinc Lozenjets are formulated with vitamin D3 as added protection for your health.

K2 which is a formula that combines vitamins K-2 (MK-7) and D3. The benefits of Vitamin D (maintaining strong bones, immune system support, healthy muscle function, etc.), and Vitamin D requires vitamin K-2 to maximize its benefits. If you’re supplementing with vitamin D, it is a good idea to take vitamin K-2 as well. Just one MicroLingual® Tablet per day provides 100 mcg of K-2 (as MK-7) and 5,000 IU of D3 which helps support strong bones, a healthy cardiovascular and immune system.
