Give Yourself the Gift of Good Health

December means that it’s cold outside, the days are shorter, and our lists grow longer and longer as we get closer to the holidays. During this time of year, it’s especially important to take care of ourselves. If we’re not careful, the stressful pace can make us overwhelmed, exhausted—maybe even sick. Nobody has time for that!

During this time of year, it’s especially important to take care of ourselves. If we’re not careful, the stressful pace can make us overwhelmed, exhausted—maybe even sick. Nobody has time for that!

While it’s tempting to focus primarily on others—it is the season of giving, after all—do yourself a favor and add “taking care of my health” to your list. Being proactive with healthy habits will reduce stress, keep up your energy levels, and boost your immune system to prevent illness. Then your holiday season truly will be merry and bright. Here are some helpful tips:

  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and flush out toxins.
  • Get enough sleep, and try to keep your bedtime and waking time the same each day for best sleep quality.
  • Recharge with mini-breaks to keep energy up and stress levels down:
    • go for a walk around the block at lunch
    • make a cup of tea and sip it mindfully—perhaps outside or by a window
    • close your eyes and take three deep breaths
    • get down on the floor and do some stretches
  • Get regular exercise, and try to get outside for some fresh air each day.
  • Eat a healthy diet—minimize sugar; eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and complex carbohydrates; and focus on getting enough immune-boosting nutrients such as B-complex vitamins; vitamins C, D, and E; beta-carotene; zinc and selenium; and probiotics. Taking a quality supplement, such as Movita Organic Women’s Multivitamin, can help ensure that you get enough of these, especially during the party season when you may not be in control of every meal.
    • The eight B vitamins, known collectively as B complex, help you convert food to energy and boost your immune system. B vitamin complex includes B1 (thiamine),
      B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6, B7 (biotin), B12, and folic acid. They also help fight the effects of stress on your mind and body, as
      they are essential for healthy neurotransmitter production. Movita provides 100% of the RDA for B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and B7; 200% of folic acid; and 300% of B12.
    • Probiotics, which are live bacteria that are beneficial to your digestive system and necessary for overall good health, have antibacterial, antiviral, antiallergenic, and antioxidant effects. The probiotics in Movita come from whole, organic food sources and include Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, and Bifidobacterium bifidum.
    • Vitamin D is essential for a healthy immune system, but we are often deficient because the only way to stimulate D production is through exposure to sunlight. In the winter, with the sun much weaker, it’s practically impossible to get enough in that way. Since D is not common in most foods, you also don’t get enough through your diet. This means that D is a vitamin that doctors recommend taking in a supplement. The best form is D3, which is what our bodies make. Movita provides 800 IU.

Movita is an organic whole-food vitamin and mineral supplement made with organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs. It is non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy- and egg-free, and allergen-free for shellfish and nuts. You only need to take one capsule a day and it doesn’t have to be with food; a cutting-edge fermentation process makes Movita easily digestible with increased absorption and bioavailability.
