In my mind, summer means time to slow down and focus on me. In reality, summer means days spent juggling work and a busy kid. Time is spent wiping sticky hands that have been holding a popsicle too long rather than quiet time laying on the beach while reading a book.
The daily commotion and disruption to routine can cause me to lose sight of my wellness goals. It’s not uncommon. As moms, we know what’s best for everyone, but sometimes forget to take care of ourselves. I’ve written these wellness tips for moms with you in mind – and me, too!
1| Go to bed early. I know, this one is tough. With the temptation of late nights sitting around the fire pit or binge watching a new-to-you series, it’s easy to find yourself wide awake well after midnight. Push yourself to head to bed at a more reasonable hour. Not getting enough sleep can make the next day feel even longer.
If you’re like me and have trouble falling asleep at night, consider adding Restful Sleep from Olly to your bedtime routine. The blend of melatonin, L-Theanine, and botanicals work to relax your mind and calm your senses for a better nights sleep.
2| Establish a good morning routine. It’s hard to be successful with this one, if you’re not going to bed early. Plan to wake up 30 minutes before your kids and your husband. Brew some coffee or have a cup of tea, sit in the backyard and enjoy the quiet. Having this extra time to yourself will lead to a more productive day.
3| Drink more water. If you think you are drinking enough water, you probably aren’t. By the time you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. Water is essential to your overall wellness. To be sure you’re drinking enough, have a glass of water with each meal, and one in between each meal.
Stayed hydrated will help you feel more energized and have a healthier outward appearance. To kick things up a notch, add some Olly Undeniable Beauty to your routine, it is specially blended with biotin, vitamin C, and borage oil. I’ve noticed an improvement in my skin and my nails are stronger, too.
4| Take a multi-vitamin. Taking vitamins and supplements is a great way to fill in any nutritional gaps that you may have. Olly vitamins are formulated to be super effective by
pairing nutrients in powerful combinations that are designed to meet a specific health benefit.
As a mom, it’s easy to skip a meal now and again. Olly vitamins, available exclusively at Target stores, can help bridge the gap. The gummies are easy to chew and the flavors are complex, not like the gummy vitamins I’ve tried in the past.
What’s great about the Olly product line is that they’ve included specially formulated multivitamins for everyone in your family and for many of life’s stages. Through a combination of multivitamins and supplements, you’re able to focus on the formulation that is right for you and your loved ones. Learn more about mixing and matching on Your Olly.
