Moms, we’ve got a Go Easy, Go Healthy On Yourself cheat sheet for you!
We know, there’s only so many hours in the day and most of yours are spent making sure your family is ok. That’s just what comes with the territory, right? But study after study shows that the health of women who are caregivers in any capacity tends to suffer. And that part is NOT ok.
One way to start to change your lifestyle is to make a mind shift about food. Think of it as fuel, think of it as medicine. And think of how you can fill in the nutritional gaps when necessary. Many women tend to think of food as the enemy or as a friend, and both of those can lead to dangerous behaviors. Eat whole foods that make you feel good from the inside out and treat yourself with a supplement program that’s made just for you.

Here are some more simple steps to get you going in a better direction, so that you can set the example for your family to follow:
“Give up sugar. You may not think you are addicted to sugar, but I challenge you to avoid it for 2 weeks. It can be found in most processed foods — including healthier ones — and is getting into our systems in quantities far greater than we realize. Sugar causes inflammation, and many people’s health issues actually resolve once they ditch sugar from their diets. It’s best to wean yourself off of sweetness, because artificial sugar substitutes aren’t much better, either.
Let go of stress. Most diseases result from inflammation, and a major culprit of inflammation is stress. Chill out. Yoga and meditation are great for dealing with stress, but writing in a journal, taking a nature walk, and drawing a hot bath are also excellent substitutions. Find what works for you and let your health-harming stress slip away.
Support your belly. We are learning more and more about the internal workings of our guts every day. The critters in your microbiome have an incredible impact on your health — from immune system strength to weight maintenance. Give them some support by including a daily probiotic in your regimen and avoiding antibiotics unless absolutely necessary.
Move. You’ve heard it a million times. A body in motion stays in motion… if you don’t use it, you lose it… every little bit counts. Stop being content with the constant comfort and leisure of modern life. Walk up the stairs instead of taking the elevator, do some stretches of ab workouts during TV commercials. Most importantly, try to get at least half an hour of moderate physical activity in on most days. Try pushing yourself to do what you don’t want to do, and you may actually surprise yourself. Bonus — regular exercise also helps to lower inflammatory stress levels.
Live passionately. Life is about balance — in your physical body, in your mind, in those closest to you. Without internal and external harmony, you aren’t giving your body a real chance at true health. Surround yourself with positive, like-minded friends and spend your free time doing what you love. Be the person you want to be, and your body will follow suite. A positive atmosphere is essential to a healthy mental state.”
