Super excited about this giveaway from my friends and partners at MegaFood!
21st century women have a lot coming at us – from balancing family with career, to enjoying the company of others and to carving out essential alone time, it takes quite a bit of effort and strategy to keep us running at our highest capacity. So how do we avoid the burn-out, maintain good health and feel like we’re accomplishing our goals? Women today have unprecedented opportunities, but that also brings unprecedented responsibilities. Taking care of you in the middle of all of that can be tough, and can sometimes feel impossible.
I’ve learned not to make “perfect” the enemy of “good”; to focus on progress not perfection. We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded by what most would consider “perfect” on social media. It’s hard to justify what’s real and what is happening in real life. I’ve learned to control what I can, and for me, that has everything to do with how I show up in the world and in my day to day.
It starts with simple things, like managing stress. As a working mom of four (all teenagers), that is no small feat. Things like sleep and hydration are critical. And while I can not always control the amount of sleep that I get, I can control when to rest my body when I know I need it most. Furthermore, I monitor my water intake and what I choose to consume every day. I pay attention to the thoughts and media I put into my head, as closely as I pay attention to my food and supplements.
That’s why I am so grateful for my MegaFood friends. Women’s health essentials are a key part of my routine and I certainly love their vitamins and supplements made with whole foods and oftentimes, tailored specifically to what a woman’s body needs.* Here is just a sampling of my favorite women’s health products from MegaFood:
- Daily Multi Powder for Women—I am a huge advocate for multivitamins and their ability to fill the holes in our nutrition intake. The new line of Multi Powders from MegaFood make it easy to get your multi boost in your favorite smoothies or juice. This made-just-for-women formulation supports you through normal hormone fluctuations* to replenish the iron lost during your menstrual cycle.* Vitamin D supports your mood and bone health too.*
- Blood Builder—A long-time favorite of mine, MegaFood Blood Builder is clinically proven to increase iron levels and reduce fatigue without common gastrointestinal side effects such as nausea or constipation. Proper iron levels are essential for women’s health and this product, made with nourishing beets, oranges and more, is the product for you.*
- New Women’s Health* Shelf-Stable Probiotics—You’ve heard me talk about the importance of gut health…it’s key to optimal wellness!* Now, we women have the opportunity to support a healthy gut and other needs specific to a woman’s body.*
I’m thrilled to be giving away 1 of each of the products listed above to one of you this month! Taking care of ourselves so that we can show up in our fullest capacity and take care of those around us is a serious commitment. MegaFood shares the seriousness of that commitment, taking care of the little things – premium ingredients from trusted farm partners devoted to organic or regenerative farming methods, B Corp certification, Glyphosate Residue Free Certification and so much more. They do that, so that we, as women, can take care of all that is happening in our lives – from the tiny little things to the big ones.
