Did you know that Renew Life offers multiple bacterial strains to reflect your gut’s natural diversity and keep it thriving?* Their formulas contain billions of live cultures to give you more of the gut-friendly bacteria you need.* Also, delayed release capsules ensure that the benefits reach your intestinal tract – and the brand guarantees live bugs and potency through expiration, unlike other probiotics on the market.
I’m my best self when I’m active, open, kind, and addressing my physical health. One thing that I’ll be doing to care for myself is to get ahead of my digestive health. It’s so important! I definitely tend to slack in some areas – like getting consistent exercise, and eating enough vegetables. Incorporating probiotics into my routine is something I can get down with.
Some people do mornings well, but I’ve never been one to enjoy the pre-9:00am time frame. When I lived in California, that might have been the only exception because the world I had known and still knew was always three hours ahead of us. Also, and this is a big one, they didn’t have winter there! I didn’t know a life of rounding up snow boots & snow suits! I didn’t know what it was to reach for the car door and find it iced shut – with a cold steering wheel to boot.
And that’s in making new routines and changes, and becoming your best self in 2020. In that respect, every morning can be a morning to enjoy. I have somehow found a way to struggle less, and enjoy more. I had to work to get there, but now I get up earlier and enjoy it more than I ever thought possible. It was really a work in progress. Once I had kids, I knew mornings might never be the same, but they didn’t have to be terrible. Now that I work more than one job and get the kids/pets ready for their days, I also work at adding balance, nourishment and joy to my days.
Caring about my gut health only improves my already healthy life. This is a key step in my wellness plan. Caring for your digestive health can increase energy, reduce stress, support immune health, and more. Let’s talk about it because I have found steps that really help!
7 Daily Steps to Better Digestive Health:
1 – Wake up naturally, if you can.
Or as naturally as you can. Sometimes waking up too suddenly can give you a little bit of a stomach ache, or maybe that’s just me? Also, if you know you’re going to have a rough wakeup, sometimes that impacts sleep the night before. Wake up naturally by going to bed at the same time every night, have a bedtime routine, and maybe use an app that wakes you up slowly.
2 – It starts with breakfast.
That’s right. Make sure you’re getting a belly-friendly breakfast in, complete with probiotics. I love plain yogurt with a little honey and I’ve found bananas and oats really help my stomach.
3 – Get that exercise in.
You can look up Yoga routines that help with digestion, and I know that walking or jogging daily, or even just three times a week, really help to get things moving! I bicycle.
4 – Drink a warm glass of water with lemon.
Do this when you wake up, and also throughout your day. And make sure you’re on top of your dental routine because lemon can harm enamel, but it’s beneficial for your digestive routine!
5 – Take time every day to avoid stress and screens.
This is your “me time.” Use it wisely. Maybe you love nature or books, or both at once. Maybe this is time for a brisk walk or cooking class, or maybe it’s meditation or journaling. You can find your mojo! “Me time” goes great followed by “family time.”
6 – Choose the right foods for meals and snacks.
Limit fats. Although fats are also important to your diet, pair them with fibers, and pair carbs with proteins. Also, eat (at least somewhat) on a schedule. Aim to eat three meals and 2-3 snacks around the same time each day.
7 – Use Renew Life Ultimate Flora Women’s Care.
This is such a favorite of mine. I’ve been using the product for a month now and I can’t imagine going to anything else. Renew Life Ultimate Flora Women’s Care is the #1 probiotic for women* and has thousands of 5-star reviews for a reason. Renew Life Ultimate Flora Women’s Care supports digestive, immune, and vaginal health. I have loved starting 2020 off with a 30-day challenge for better digestive health! And since not all probiotics are created equal, and everyone has their own unique needs, Renew Life offers a 60-day money-back guarantee. You can find Renew Life in the Vitamins & Supplements or Digestive Health aisle at Walmart or shop it here. Have you tried it yet?
