vitamins are supplements? And so are probiotics.

Supplements vs Vitamins vs Probiotics

Is it the same or different? When looking into vitamins and supplements, it's easy to get confused as to which is which. A vitamin is defined as a natural substance usually found in food that helps your body be healthy. A dietary supplement is defined as a product taken orally that contains one or more ingredients, such as vitamins or amino acids, that are intended to supplement one's diet and are not considered food. With that in mind, it is important to understand what your body needs to function at optimal efficiency. Which supplements should I take? Multivitamins are supplements that come in many forms, and can be targeted toward different people dealing with different medical issues. Centrum is a line that specializes in multivitamins, including those that target seniors over the age of 60. Prenatal vitamins are supplements that women take when they are expecting a child. These tend ...

Cooking Healthful Joyful Meals with a Picky Family

Cooking Healthful Joyful Meals with a Picky Family

by RSS Feed on Saturday, March 30th, 2019 with no comments By Leo Babauta Shifting from a convenient but unhealthy diet to one of healthful, delicious joy can be a challenge when you’re living alone — but there’s a whole new level of challenge if you are part of a family. The problem: while you might want to change to a new style of eating, picky eaters (kids, but also spouses) can disagree with the change. Who wants to eat kale when fried chicken and pizza are go-to staples? Who wants to eat oats and fruit when Poptarts and sausages are the usual breakfast foods? Well, me. And maybe you. But how do we deal with a family full of picky eaters? A woman in my Sea Change Program asked me: “I’ve got 2 kids who are picky and a husband who doesn’t generally like vegetables and really hates having ...

How to do self care more consistently

How to do self care more consistently

I'm Laura Agar Wilson. I'm a Mum, coffee addict and Hygge lover. I help women remember that they are enough. Whether it's eating well, exercising, meditating or any kind of positive habit, something a lot of us struggle with is doing it consistently. We all wish we could start a habit and have it stick, but so often life can just get in the way and make it hard! I do sometimes think we can beat ourselves up over our lack of consistency – sometimes we don’t need to be as ‘consistent’ as we think, we just need to reframe how we think of it! But If that sounds like you and you wish you were able to do things to take care of yourself more consistently then read on. Define consistency The first thing to consider is what consistency actually looks like for you. Weekly? Daily? Twice a week? ...

5 ways to get your calm back

5 ways to get your calm back

I'm Laura Agar Wilson. I'm a Mum, coffee addict and Hygge lover. I help women remember that they are enough I’m reading a new book at the moment – it’s called Too Much Information and it’s a comedy take on the crazy amount of information we’re exposed to these days. Given that often feel like my brain has too many tabs open, that my to-do list is never ending and that my Dr Google habit sometimes gets a bit out of control – ‘too much information’ is definitely one way to describe how I feel sometimes. One of my intentions for this year is to slow down. Slowing down and creating space in my day to day life has been something I’m consciously working on so I thought I’d share a few of the things that have helped me find my calm. Boundaries Having boundaries in place that support my ...

These Brownies Will Teach You How To Be Your Own Best Valentine

These Brownies Will Teach You How To Be Your Own Best Valentine

It may be a made-up Hallmark holiday but Valentine’s Day can have the power to make anyone, single or coupled, feel like they aren’t enough. Aren’t loved enough, aren’t happily coupled enough, didn’t get enough of a present for their partner, etc. etc. And so I propose that this Valentine’s Day we simply focus on being our own best Valentine. Which brings up all sorts of questions about how you love and take care of yourself. But the bigger question is…hey, how about these beautiful brownies?? Lessons from these no-bake Valentine’s treats include: 1. Don’t wait for outside validation. Validate yourself, and often. I literally drove down the street yesterday saying out loud to myself, “Michelle you did a GREAT job today. You killed it and I’m proud of you.” Luckily no one else was in the car that I would have had to explain myself to. Or, on second ...
