4 Simple Steps for a Family Striving for Healthy Living

Being healthy is something that my family is striving to do better!

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

It’s hard sometimes though, isn’t it?  There’s labels to check and calories to count.  There’s so many messages out there. How many steps did you take today?  Did you take your vitamins?  Eat more fiber!  Go to bed early!  It is easy to get overwhelmed, but it doesn’t have to be!

I feel so much better and notice positive changes in my family when we do the following 4 things:

  • Drink 8-8oz glasses of water each day
  • I take my 100% vegetarian, gluten & dairy free Nature Made Advanced Probiotics/ kids take their vitamins
  • Cook healthy meals for my family
  • Get 30 minutes of exercise daily

I want to set a good example for my children and provide them with the very best nutrition and health.   Drinking 8- 8oz glasses of water a day, eating healthy (cutting out unhealthy carbs,) taking our vitamins and getting 30 minutes of exercise each day is the big push around our house.  Your kids copy what they see you do, so my #1 focus is to teach them and show them what healthy living is about.  They take their vitamins in the morning and I take my Nature Made Advanced Probiotics which has 15 Billion live cultures per serving.*  We make it a team effort!

Nature Made Advanced Probiotics from Kroger are gentle enough for everyday use so I don’t have to worry about it and super easy to take for my digestive health.  Advanced Dual Action Probiotics work in your small intestine and large intestine. † It helps support digestive balance and a healthy gut flora.†  When my inside is working well I can feel better all around.  When I feel better all around, I can take better care of my family, that’s for sure!   I believe true wellness starts on the inside!

We get out and go to the park, walk or go to the gym every day for at least 30 minutes.  I try to make it fun so the kids will be fond of exercise and can pick up the pace when they are older.

Kroger is a go to spot for us when we need to pick up healthy food as they have an amazing produce and deli section, household items and even my Nature Made Advanced Probiotics.  Yes, they have a huge pharmacy section so you can pick up everything you need all in one place, which makes for really easy!  Everyone is always nice and the kids love pushing around the little kids carts!  I highly suggest checking out Kroger next time you need to pick up some healthy food and Nature Made Advanced Probiotics.

Buying and picking healthy choices is half the battle when it comes to being and eating healthy.  I find if I have it ready and prepared, I am more likely to eat it versus not being prepared and opting for takeout.  Takeout food in excess and all those unhealthy carbs/calories are so not good for us!

It takes a little preparation sometimes but you can be and live healthy!  Remember your kids are watching and they want to be just like you!  So, one step at a time, Mom!  Just pick one or two of the tips above and start there!  You can do it!

    Yes! I’ve been working on all of this. Lately, I’ve been slacking in the exercise department. I like to go outside and walk with my boys in the double stroller, but it’s just way too dang hot in Texas for that right now!
