Living a Healthier You For a Better You ~ #BetterOffHealthy


This year my goal is to live a healthier life and today I want to share how Nature's Bounty® is helping me to achieve my goal.

This is a sponsored post in partnership with The Motherhood on behalf of Nature’s Bounty®.


We all want to live healthy and full lives and we all have different reasons for wanting to achieve that. Whether it's for yourself, your family or maybe just to fulfill a passion that you've had for many years. For example, I would love to visit each and every country around the world, it's always been a dream of mine, but if I'm not in the best health, it's not going to happen. Now living healthy may be different for everyone. Some people want to live healthier spiritually, mentally, socially, emotionally or even physically. I want to live all of the above, and not just for myself, but for those around me as well. When I'm not in a good mood, it not only affects my wellbeing, but my family as well. They pick up on my emotions and thus everyone has a bad day. Living healthy is important and no matter what you may think, we are all better off healthy. Today I'm sharing the three ways that I'm trying to live a healthier and better life, thanks to Nature's Bounty®.


About Nature's Bounty®. 

Nature's Bounty has been a trusted product for health-conscious individuals for nearly fifty years. That's a very long time, even more years than I have been alive. Their dedication to quality, consistency, and scientific research has resulted in vitamins and nutritional supplements of unrivaled excellence. They not only combine the latest breakthroughs in nutritional science with the finest ingredients, but they are proud to provide consumers with supplements of unsurpassed quality and value.


So how have I been living a healthier me? 

Getting more sleep
I have always had a problem with my sleep pattern. No matter what time of night I go to bed, not only would sleep elude me, but whenever it did arrive, it wasn't sound, but rather restless. After a visit to my doctor, there were a few recommendation. One was turning off the lights and all electronics, including the TV, placing my cell phone and laptop in a separate room and taking melatonin before going to bed. It was difficult at first, because I'm one of those who has to have the TV on in order to sleep because I needed the background noise. I have been taking Nature’s Bounty® Melatonin which is an excellent choice if you experience the occasional sleeplessness like I do or if you just want to improve the quality of rest you receive nightly. Melatonin is a clinically studied ingredient that helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.*


Taking care of my sight
My mother started wearing glasses when she was 19 years old, but by the time she was 40 it turned into bi-focals. My vision has always been excellent, as a matter of fact at my last vision screening it was stated that my vision was 20/15. Lately, however, I've noticed that there's been a change. My long distance sight was starting to get blurry and it hasn't been the same. While the thought of wearing glasses doesn't thrill me, the very thought of losing my sight does. I would LOVE to see my children grow up, walk down the aisle of their wedding and be able to play with my grandkids. However, I am on my computer for most of the day, and most bloggers can relate. When I'm not typing up ideas for blog posts, editing photos, I'm constantly searching shopping sites or perusing social media.

Did you know that digital devices emit high amounts of the high energy blue light which may induce oxidative stress to the eyes?

That's why I take Nature’s Bounty® Lutein Blue. It's a unique eye health supplement that helps filter damaging blue light from electronic devices*, thus protecting my eyes from those same damaging blue light.  It's clinically studied formula also supports eye health*.


Maintaining my heart health
Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death right here in the US, and it's very important that I take care of myself to reduce my risk for heart disease. Having a family history puts me at risk even more so, so it's imperative that I do what I need to do to stay healthy. One such step is eating healthier, and instead of totally banning items off my menu, I have been controlling my portion sizes, and incorporating more heart-healthy options such as eating more fresh fruits, veggies and fish this year. I have also added Nature’s Bounty® Fish Oil to my diet since it supports cardio and circulatory health*. When I was growing up, my mother would give me and my brothers fish oil, and I had no idea why she gave it, but I'm happy that she did.


Sure, we all want to be healthy for the big celebrations and victories, but it’s also those small, everyday moments, which truly make life special, that you want to be healthy for. We need healthy hearts to cheer our bowling league onto victory, the drive to whip up dinner for the family, a strong stomach to share embarrassing moments with friends, and the energy to celebrate all victories, no matter how large or small.

No matter what your reason for living healthy, Nature’s Bounty® is here to support you on your health journey. Sign up for Nature’s Bounty’s mailing list to receive news, offers and announcements right to your inbox visit http://bit.ly/NBSignUpNow.

  1. I am on my phone all the time so that Lutein Blue is just what I need. BTW I need them all. I haven't been eating healthy, haven't been sleeping properly and I'm not sure what's going on. These Nature's Bounty products will help me better this year for sure.

    1. You're not alone. While I'm not on my phone, I'm usually on my computer for more time than I want to admit and it's not a good thing so using Lutein Blue is great for me.

  2. Being that I do most of my work on a computer all day long, I think I may very well need to look into Lutein Blue now. So thanks for the advice and sharing about it here with me.

    1. Yes, you do need to look into Lutein Blue. It's the one that I always remember to take, even if I forget to take the others.

  3. I love Nature's Bounty. I actually started living a healthier lifestyle a couple of years ago. I look so much better, but about a year in, I noticed I didn't feel as great as I thought I would. I started using their multivitamin and fish oil, and I noticed a difference in how I felt fairly quickly. Love these guys.

    1. Oh I'm so happy to hear that. I started my lifestyle change this year and I can already see the difference myself too. I'm only sorry that I hadn't done it sooner.

  4. I also take vitamins to keep healthy. Our lives are so different that our parents's, we are always on the run, always doing something or trying to finish something. We do need vitamins for a good night sleep and to keep our bodies functioning properly.

    1. That is so true. My parents had a laid back lifestyle, while I'm always on the run for sure. Always trying to meet a deadline etc. Vitamins are essential and I take their multivitamins to supplement what I don't receive in my daily diet.

  5. This is great advice. I didn't know that the blue light can also cause oxidative stress to the eyes, but it makes sense. I try to limit devices at night but I'm not always successful. I do take vitamins, and agree that they are essential for a good night's sleep.

    1. I actually had no idea until I read up on Lutein Blue, and as a blogger, I'm almost always on the computer, except for the weekend when I take a break, I would suggest taking them too if you're always on your computer or cell phone.

  6. Great tips and there is a supplement that would help so many organ systems. I take Nature's Bounty Vit D and calcium for my bone health. I have to look into the lutein which I am first heaing about today.

  7. Health is so important to our well being! I love how you describe the benefits of the 3 different vitamins. I didn't know lutein blue was good for your sight. I am near sighted. I would love to give those a try.

    1. I just recently realized that I'm far sighted. I can't see much that are close to my face. It wasn't always so and think it might be the stress from being on my computer most of the time, so I'm happy that Lutein Blue is there to help.

  8. I need to try these out. I do want to be healthier. I need to try these out. I worry about my sight as well since I'm on the computer a lot.

  9. I always see their products at Rite Aid and there’s a few that I really love. Those gummies! My mom and my grandmother both have or had pretty terrible vision, but my father had perfect vision. My sister needed glasses by the time she was 11 and I still don’t wear them daily but need them for night driving, and have since my 20s.

    1. Their gummies are amazing and I had almost perfect vision until recently. I just set up another appointment with my ophthalmologist and hoping that with using Lutein Blue, it'll get better.

  13. I love Nature's Bounty. My cabinets are stocked full of their supplements. I haven't tried the Melatonin yet as I usually fall right to sleep, but I should pick some up on the off day that it just isn't coming easily.

    I take multivitamin and probiotic supplements. However, I don't have supplements that are targeted to a specific need. I think Lutein Blue is necessary for eye health. I don't have perfect vision and I don't want it to get worse.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Then you would totally benefit from taking Lutein Blue. My eyesight isn't the best, especially now that I'm getting older, so taking Lutein Blue is benefitting me.
