When 2015 was coming to an end, I decided to forego the traditional New Year's Resolutions that people always make. You see, I've never been one to keep those so I decided to do something realistic and instead of saying that I was going to drop 20 or 30 pounds, I thought I'd just try to live a healthier lifestyle overall. Living healthy means different things to each of us but there are some things that we'll all have in common to meet those goals, so I thought I'd share them with you.
4 Tips for Healthier Living
- Eat Better?- The food that we put into our bodies most definitely affects our overall health and that's one of my biggest problems. I love food and I tend to crave certain things that taste delicious. In an effort to live healthier, I've started to grab foods that are better for me. I've been on a huge fruit kick lately and when I'm craving something sweet, I reach for fruit more often than not. Other good snacking options are vegetables and nuts.
- Take Vitamins - Your mom probably told you as a kid to make sure you take your vitamins and that's because vitamins can help you stay on track and supplement things that you're missing.
I've been really bad at taking vitamins and I've rarely done so. But now that I'm getting older, I've realized that I really am lacking quite?a few things. For some time now, I've had some pretty serious issues with being tired all the time. Most nights I don't get a good night's rest, but even when I did, I just wasn't feeling as energetic as I should have been. Something had to give and I needed a boost of energy.
Nature Made is the best selling brand in America and is known for providing?quality vitamins, minerals and supplements*, so naturally that's the brand that I decided to go with when I wanted?to start taking vitamins.

Since I needed something to help with my lack of energy, Nature Made Stress B-Complex seemed like the right choice for me and I've definitely noticed a change in my body. I don't always feel so tired like I did and it also helps support my immune system. I was honestly surprised at the difference that one little vitamin can do!
3. Drink More Water - Water is essential but it's also good for you! Instead of reaching for a can of soda or other sugary, calorie filled beverage, grab a refreshing glass of water instead. Trust me, your body will thank you!
4. Stay Active - Keeping active can be tough, especially for people that sit in an office or at school all day. But there are simple things that you can do, even from your desk. When you're not at work, go for a brisk walk around the block, take a swim or climb up and down some stairs!
