My 3 Steps to Getting Healthy, Again

I have been compensated by Sundown Naturals® and Pollinate Media Group for this post as part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sundown Naturals® but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #GoodnessGiveaway #sharethegoodness

When I am trying to be healthier in my life I am all or nothing. Well, it’s time to be all again because I am getting a little out of hand. I was doing great with vitamins, running/exercising and eating right – then summer happened. It’s time to get back on the wagon.

I was having the hardest time trying to be healthy because I was going to the gym/CrossFit at 5:00 am every morning. This made me exhausted and when I would get home from work I was too tired to play with my own kids. Then, my FitBit battery died and if I’m not being tracked, what’s the point right?

Fortunately I have found three simple ways to overcome all this and jump back on the wagon. Here are my favorite things for healthy living:

My 3 Steps to Getting Healthy, Again by The Modern DadSundown Naturals® Vitamins: I love that these are not only vitamins that my body needs to stay healthy, but they are now in Gummy form! I am always giving my son his gummy vitamin wishing I had that same option. Well, now I do.  

Now, when you are deciding to take any kind of supplement, it is important to know what’s best suited for you. Thankfully there is this simple test you can take to figure that out. I personally love that Sundown Naturals® are free of gluten, dairy, and artificial flavors◊. Also, there is a wide variety of options at Walmart which is always convenient.

My 3 Steps to Getting Healthy, Again by The Modern DadI have always used a probiotic and their Probiotic Gummies provide friendly bacteria for the digestive system with over 2 billion live cultures per serving at time of manufacture. They feature a special probiotic strain called Unique IS-2™ that is naturally found in the intestinal microflora and surrounds itself with protective layers to increase viability*. I love the gummies because they don’t leave that chalky taste in your mouth like other chewable vitamins do.

Need to add more Vitamin B in your life? B-12 is an important vitamin for heart and circulatory health, and also contributes to the health of the nervous system. I need much more of that in my life with kids and this is exactly what I was looking for – a gummy version makes it better

My 3 Steps to Getting Healthy, Again by The Modern DadFitbit: I feel like since my battery died on that thing I have just been going downhill. There was something about always being against someone and trying to have the most steps in the day that kept me extra motivated. I guess it’s time to get myself a new one and get back on the tracking steps wagon.

Running with the BOB: When we were getting our stroller I had to get a BOB because I wanted to run with the kids outside in the amazing neighborhood that we live in. I haven’t taken that thing out for over a year and I hate myself for it. I always complain that I don’t workout as much because I hated all the time away from the kids, but putting one of them in the stroller and going for a run is better than sitting on the couch watch Bachelor in Paradise (just kidding, nothing is better than that).

My 3 Steps to Getting Healthy, Again by The Modern DadGrowing up I always knew that to have a healthy lifestyle was done by taking my vitamins, staying active and eating right is all I needed to do. For some reason the complete opposite is so much better. I am just glad to have adult chewable vitamins to have so I can enjoy them with my son enjoying his.
