5 Ways I’m Improving My Health This Coming Birthday Year

This is a sponsored post in partnership with The Motherhood on behalf of Nature’s Bounty

My birthday is coming in a month and I want to start my next trip around the sun with healthy habits.  I’ve been feeling like I  have been failing with my health goals this year!! There is always so much to do, that I feel like I let taking care of ME fall to the bottom of my to do list.  When I sat down to be honest with myself, I realized it wasn’t that I had too much to do, it was that I wasn’t making myself a priority.  You know the saying: put your own airbag on before you help anyone else? I realized that I wasn’t following that advice.  So I sat down and made a list of 5 ways that I am improving my health this coming birthday year.

1. Eat Better

I am out of control! Burgers, fried food, snacks…I have been stress eating all of the unhealthy things. I know that getting in my nutrients every day is important to my overall health, so I am going to start taking Nature’s Bounty Adult Multi Gummy vitamins to help me achieve my goals while I’m getting my diet on track.

Nature’s Bounty Adult Multi Gummy vitamins are a  delicious way to get the nutrients my body needs. Each serving provides 100% Daily Value or more of four key B Vitamins, Vitamin C and Vitamin D to keep you going while supporting your immune system and promoting bone health.*

2. Move

I spend my days sitting down, not really moving around. I NEED TO MOVE. Studies have shown that exercise not only improves your physical health, but improves your mental health also. My plan is to make exercise a priority by actually scheduling it into my day. That is the only way it will get done.

3. Limit Screen Time

I’m going to have to limit screen time. Did you know that digital devices emit high amounts of the high energy blue light which may induce oxidative stress to the eyes? I spend a lot of time in front of my computer everyday because…that’s my job.  So I worry about my eyes and eye strain. That’s why I’m adding Nature’s Bounty® Lutein Blue to my routine.  Nature’s Bounty® Lutein Blue is a unique eye health supplement that helps filter damaging blue light from electronic devices and is a clinically studied formula to support eye health*. 

4. Prioritize Me Time

Mental health is just as important as physical health. We need that time where we can just sit and take care of ourselves. I’m vowing to take the time everyday, even if it’s only 20 minutes, to do something for me. That might be reading a book, sipping a cup of coffee in peace, or taking a quick walk. Something for me everyday.

5. Get More Sleep

Guys. I get up at 4 every morning. I used to be really good at going to sleep early or on time, but I’ve fallen off! My priority this year is to GET MORE SLEEP.  But sometimes, I just can’t stay asleep or I wake up an hour before my alarm!  That’s why Nature’s Bounty® Melatonin is a great choice if you experience occasional sleeplessness or jet lag, or if you want to improve your quality of rest.* Melatonin is a clinically studied ingredient that helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.* Have you tried melatonin?


So these are the ways that I’m going to improve my health this year. You know, we all want to be healthy for the big celebrations and victories, but remember, it’s those everyday precious moments with friends and family that we really want to be healthy for! Your goals might not look like mine, because we all have different versions of what healthy looks like for us, whether that’s spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically or mentally. It’s up to you to decide what works for you and your life!

    We are all guilty of the things you are listing like not eating right and not exercising enough. I need to get that Lutein because I am always on my computer and that can not be good.

    I have heard great things about melatonin. Some nights I feel like I cannot sleep and believe this could help.

    These are all things I need to be doing as well. I do spend a lot of time in front of my laptop. I’ll have to pick up some Lutein Blue.

    I agree with all of these. I need to do the same. My biggest one is to get more fit. I don’t do a whole lot of exercising, and I’d like to get back to that again.

    These are some great goals to work towards! I’ll be the first to admit I eat a lot of fast food as I’m always on the run. I need to be better about eating healthier.
