What’s on tap for 2020? Well, hopefully EVERYTHING. Lately, I think it’s largely about raising these great kids and watching them grow up – and a become bit more independent each day. Once we got out of the swirl and whirl of diaper changes, naps, and feedings, we are left with the core of this life. Love. Work. Meaning. Dreaming. TRAVEL! Once Des grew out of the toddler stage, it hit me that while we still have many vivid and gorgeous years of parenting to come, I want to work more on the foundation of this life. I suppose there is more than one thing holding up the foundation. I want to work on my career. And, I want to work on ME more!
There are so many intricate pieces that add up together to make a fulfilling life. They are steps! They are big by themselves, especially when you work on them daily, and they also add up together to make big changes – for your best year! I keep this cute TASKS app on my phone, and while it doesn’t necessarily propel me, reward me, or hold me accountable, it does serve two purposes. 1 – it does inspire me. It’s just one step of many little steps, that add up to BIG changes. And 2 – it shows me what I find important – and what it means to me to succeed.
Take These Steps for a Healthier Life in the New Year:
As you know from my previous post, I took the free lifestyle quiz from GNC that is helping to give me the tools I need to support my health, wellness, and fitness goals. GNC created a breakthrough in personal wellness and it’s called GNC4U! So what I did was to take the free lifestyle quiz. GNC, backed by superior science, used the answers from my quiz to build a customized vitamin and supplement, exercise, and nutrition plan that’s tailored just for ME! Then, they sent a 30-day supply of personalized daily vitamin and supplement packs. I received up to eight different vitamins and supplements, based on my individual needs. For me:
L-Theanine 200 MG
Women’s Ultra Mega® One Daily
Rhodiola Extract 340 MG
Melatonin 3 MG
CoQ-10 400 MG
Triple Strength Fish Oil
So by now, I’ve had a few weeks with my supplements. And it’s a GREAT time of year to start because I’ve been exercising less and eating more rich foods and sugar right now because of the holidays and new year. What’s important to me has been better and more consistent sleep. That means going to bed when Cassidy goes to bed (early) and waking up around the same time every day. I made this a priority in my quiz, so GNC4U added Melatonin to my personalized packets. I’m also concerned about heart health – as I stated in my free lifestyle quiz – because my father passed away young from heart disease. That’s why I was happy to get CoQ-10.
I filled out some questions about stress relief and anxiety, and L-Theanine supports relaxation, which we can definitely all use for the new year! And I also love having Rhodiola (mn. My brain is super important to me. I love the way it works, however oddly, and so I love having it work at capacity.). Plus I’ve always been interested in Fish Oil supplements so I love this Triple Strength Fish Oil. I really love that this packet is addressing the concerns I have about heart health, stress, cognitive health, and sleep. I’m working with these supplements to ensure a great start to the new year. I know they help.
When you take the free lifestyle quiz it will ask you about your age, weight, family history, and lifestyle choices. Remember that this quiz is free for everyone! As for the cost of the monthly customized vitamin and supplement packs, that will vary based on each recommendation. There are other options too! You can submit your DNA info, if you choose, and the cost of a free lifestyle quiz and GNC4U DNA kit is $89.99. The cost of the free lifestyle quiz and the submission of existing personal DNA information is $29.99. You can find out more on GNC4U.com. Just click “GET STARTED NOW” and you’re on your way to personalized daily vitamin & supplement packs!
So much to love! Daytime and nighttime packs and options showing up at your doorstep! I love this because health is a top priority, and these nutritional vitamins & supplements can help me reach my goals. No matter what motivates you to start a healthier life in the new year, GNC4U has your back!
