Self care is an act of love. This month moving forward I will be sharing more things that involve “self care.” I believe we all can agree that last year, leading up to now has been very challenging. Physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. But one thing we ALL can do is take better care of our bodies. Mental health is vital for the function of all other factors. With that being said, the products you consume can take a toll on your body. From your skin, weight, mood, sleep, etc. But I’m here to encourage you that there’s still hope! We all can make small changes to what we put into our bodies. One major change is VITAMINS. Most of us have pretty busy lives. Whether you’re working corporately, or working from home. And one of the most poplar questions I get asked is “why do I need to take vitamins daily or even take them at all?” Let me explain. Vitamins are a sure way to get in those nutrients that you are not obtaining daily from foods that you may or may not eat. It’s like gas to a vehicle. You can only drive so long on fume. Eventually you’re going to tap out. Build up your body/immune so that it can help fight off different ailments, and other health related issues. They help you feel and look better! I’m a walking testimony. So starting today, let’s be proactive in being accountable for taking better care of our bodies. You deserve it. Your family deserves it. Your body deserves it. If you want to check out other vitamins I take, search my blog entitled “my daily vitamins”. I’ve recently added a few more to my daily regimen.
- Elderberry is very good for your immune, to help fight cold/flu, and they’re packed with antioxidants. I always amp up my dosage around the colder seasons. (not seen pictured)
- Apple cider vinegar gummies are good for digestion, energy, and can help lower cholesterol.
- Vitamin D3 are a game changer all on its own. Especially for African Americans. We don’t get exposed to enough sun as we should. Vitamin D3 helps to strengthen bones/muscles, boost immunity, and improve regulating your mood.
- Vitamin code Raw B are good for your hair, skin, and nails. It’s also very good for fatigue and increased energy. Note: I normally take these additionally as I see fit.
Cheers to self care!!
