Whether you have a baby in tow or are running kids back and forth from school, being a mom takes a lot of energy and sometimes leaving little time to take care of yourself. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still be a healthy mama. I got to thinking about this when Mom Central Consulting asked me to write a sponsored post about Provella which is designed for women to promote digestive, feminine, and immune health. There are many ways moms can stay healthy without breaking the budget. I’ve been chatting with some of my friends to see how they manage to keep healthy, without paying for costly gym memberships or meal plans. I personally have much room for improvement, and look forward to implementing some of their suggestion into my own routine. Ways for moms to stay healthy:
Get plenty of sleep. I know this seems impossible at times, but grab it whenever you can. Learn to fall asleep quickly and to take cat naps. Get comfortable and turn on some soothing music or a sound machine. Make sure it’s dark or wear a sleeping mask. If you are grabbing just a few minutes of quiet, set an alarm clock so you can relax and not worry about oversleeping.
Snack smartly. This is an area where I personally need to improve. Keep a bowl of fruit or celery sticks on the counter for easy access. Eat healthy snacks like fruit or a handful of almonds often, so your body doesn’t go into starvation mode. Try to not even have the ‘bad stuff’ in the house. If it’s unhealthy for you it’s most likely unhealthy for the rest of your family.
Two additional diet related things that have been suggested is to drink plenty of water, and learn to love breakfast.
Wash your hands frequently. It’s no secret that colds and other illnesses are spread via germs. Our children are exposed to lots of germs at daycare and school, so it’s hard to keep germs at bay. Germs are typically spread by all the things we touch throughout the day from door handles to grocery carts. Wash your hands frequently and carry hand sanitizer to reduce the spread of germs. Also, make sure you don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth after being exposed to a lot of germs.
Get active. There are many ways to get active, even if you have babies and toddlers at home. Pull out the stroller and go for a walk. If the weather is keeping you inside, try popping in a yoga DVD or workout using Wii Fit. If you want to mix things up a bit, try checking out a variety of workout DVD’s from your local library.
Take vitamins and supplements.
Provella™ is a unique probiotic supplement that contains a proprietary blend of 6 bacterial strains chosen specifically for maximum benefit to women. It helps promote digestive, feminine, and immune health.
What’s a Probiotic? Probiotics are not drugs or vitamins. They are friendly, good bacteria that help our bodies stay healthy. The balance between our body’s good bacteria and bad bacteria can be disrupted by factors like antibiotics, changing hormone levels and diet. A probiotic is one way we can restore the balance between the good and bad bacteria.
Probiotics can help maintain digestive, feminine and immune health. Not all probiotics are the same, so a probiotic like Provella™ may be recommended by your physician because it is specifically designed to meet the needs of women.
