As Ferris Bueller would say, “life moves pretty fast” – so it can be tough to remember to take care of yourself (both inside and outside). Well, lucky for you this week is Women’s Health Week! Check out our list below for simple ways to be kind to your body each day.
Snack on real food
We’re all running around like crazy people on a normal day, which means we sometimes reach for the nearest sugary granola bar (guilty) or just skip meals altogether. That being said, nobody likes guzzling down a fake, chemical-filled protein shake (yummm) to get in a quick nutrient fix. Keep some healthy stuff in your purse or gym bag.
RX Bars – They actually fill you up (shocker), and they’re made of straight up real ingredients that all listed on the front of the package. They come in tons of flavors (can’t go wrong with Blueberry), many of which are Vegan, Paleo and/or Whole 30 friendly.
Make it shine
There are so many dang good oils out there that are a form of nature’s super food. It can get a little overwhelming, so we’re a fan of the kinds you can use daily on your face, hair, and body as an all-in-one.
Acure Moroccan Argan Oil – In a nutshell, Argan oil is a skin and hair godsend. It’s rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and proteins, so it can help restore texture and tone. Frizz, be gone! Plus, it’s super lightweight so it’s not dragging your hair down and won’t feel too greasy on your skin. A little dab’ll do ya.
We all know can help you look and feel awesome. “But, how do I trick myself into it? I’m so bad at drinking water!” says you, in your head, right now.Easy! Get a big, stylish water bottle like this one.
Ergo Spectrum Insulated Water Bottle for both hot and cold drinks (and we love it in Aqua). It’s nice and light in your bag with the BPA-free plastic, and has a wide mouth for easy cleaning. Plus, it’s dishwasher safe!
Build up from the inside out
We’ve come a long way from Flintstone’s gummies, people. Be an adult and talk to your doctor about the benefits of taking vitamins and supplements – your future self will thank you. Not all vitamins are created equal.
Youtheory Collagen Advanced Formula Tablets – You’ve heard and read bits about Collagen – but what’s the fuss about? Collagen is one of our body’s key structural protein, so it helps create strong and healthy hair, nails, bone, muscles and tendons. Yep…so, basically could contribute to everything from younger-looking skin to your acing your next workout.
Commit to sleep
Firstly, say “NO” to that third Netflix series episode in a row and get to bed at a decent hour – it’ll be there tomorrow. Secondly, help yourself sleep soundly when your brain isn’t getting the memo.
OLLY Restful Sleep Gummies, Blackberry Zen – Olly’s Restful Sleep was designed to make your mind chill out, relax your body and calm your senses so that you sleep better by boosting your body’s natural sleep hormone. Win, win.
