While my husband and I are both relatively young and healthy, we have three young children at home – including a four-month-old baby, so it’s truly important for us to maintain our personal health and set a good example for our children. We both started quite a few new healthy habits this year, but we’re looking forward to taking it to the next level in the new year. Keep reading to learn about five easy ways to support your health in 2022 and find out about a great sale on some of our favorite supplements!
5 Ways to Improve Your Health in 2022
1. Creating An Attainable Workout Schedule
My husband and I bought gym equipment for our home as our Christmas present to each other, so we won’t have any excuse not to work out! With three young children in our home, having access to at-home workouts makes a huge difference. It completely takes away the excuse of not having time to workout because we can always fit in a short workout at night after the kids go to bed.
If you’re having trouble finding time to workout too, find a way to take away all of your excuses. Block out time in your schedule- even if it’s only half an hour. Find a workout that you actually like, and find a way to do it at home if necessary. We purchased an exercise bike, yoga mats, and free weights for our workouts, but there are SO many free workouts available online that require no equipment at all. Do whatever works for you and your family, and most importantly, find something that you can actually stick with!
2. Focusing on Healthy Sleep Habits
Sleep is such a huge component in our health, and after nearly a year of pregnancy with two toddlers in the house and then having a newborn, we haven’t gotten a full night’s sleep in quite a while! Now that baby boy is sleeping through the night, my husband and I are prioritizing a healthy sleep schedule. I’m one of those annoying people who can almost instantly fall asleep anywhere at any time, but my husband sometimes has trouble falling and staying asleep.
My husband Ryan is a big fan of melatonin, and Nature’s Bounty® Sleep3 is a great addition to his routine to help him fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. It uses Triple Action Time Release Technology with 10mg of Melatonin to help you stay asleep longer when you’re experiencing occasional sleeplessness plus L-Theanine, and a blend of nighttime herbs including chamomile, lavender, lemon balm, and valerian root extracts.* It’s available at Publix, and I’m so happy my husband has access to something to help him get a good night’s sleep!
3. Prioritizing Good Nutrition
After the holidays, we’re planning on going through our pantry and getting rid of all of the After the holidays, we’re planning on going through our pantry and getting rid of all of the holiday treats and stocking up on nutritious food. I have meal plans ready to go, so we’ll always have delicious and nutritious options to grab. When you make healthy food easy and yummy, it’s much easier to stay on track! Plus, our doctors recommended we add a great probiotic to our diet, so I picked up the Nature’s Bounty® Probiotic 10 to help give our digestive system the good bacteria it wants to thrive!*
Nature’s Bounty® Probiotic 10 contains 20 Billion Live Cultures and 10 distinct probiotic strains to supplement the natural diversity of your microbiome.* You only need one pill a day, and this probiotic formula helps support your body’s digestive system, immune health, and even upper respiratory function*. Probiotics are one of the only supplements I take whether I’m pregnant, breastfeeding, or not, so it’s really important to me to find a formula that works! Before introducing a probiotic to your routine, check with your doctor. I’ve had great luck with this formula, and I love that it’s available at a great price at Publix.

4. Supporting Our Immune System
It never hurts to give your immune system a little support! While we keep on top of proper nutrition and handwashing, I also like to have our cabinet stocked with Nature’s Bounty® Immune 24 Hour+ and Nature’s Bounty® Zinc Gummies for my husband to help support his immune system! Side note: the reason why I’m not personally taking these supplements at the moment is because I’m currently breastfeeding our infant, but I’m a big fan of both zinc and immune supporting ingredients when I’m not nursing! Even though I can’t take them at the moment, I love having them available for my husband!
Nature’s Bounty® Immune 24 Hour+ is such a great addition to our supplement regimen because it helps maintain a healthy immune system with Ester-C®, a highly bioavailable and the only Vitamin C that lasts for 24 hours in your white blood cells plus, supports upper respiratory health.* It also includes Vitamin D, Zinc, Vitamin A, to support immune and overall health in addition to Elderberry, and Echinacea.* I bought my husband Nature’s Bounty® Zinc Gummies as well, which supports immune health and can function as an antioxidant in your body*.
It’s important to me to find supplements that will give my family’s immune systems the support it needs in addition to maintaining our normal healthy habits. I love that Nature’s Bounty® is affordable, contains highly quality ingredients, and is available at our local Publix that’s only a few minutes from our home.
5. Decreasing Stress Whenever Possible
My husband and I both know we’re not our best selves physically or emotionally when we’re stressed, and it can take a toll on our health. That’s why we’re making it a focus to decrease our stress levels as much as possible through proper sleep, a good exercise routine, therapy, breathing techniques/meditation, and good old fashioned fun with the family!
When I’m eating right, getting enough exercise and sleep, and limiting my stress levels, I notice a HUGE difference in how I feel each day. Not only do I physically feel better, but I’m more productive and better able to appreciate each moment of the day. Now that we have three little ones to take care of, it’s more important than ever for my husband and I to refocus on our habits and prioritize healthy living.
