I have been compensated by Sundown Naturals® and Pollinate Media Group for this post as part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sundown Naturals® but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #GoodnessGiveaway #sharethegoodness http://my-disclosur.es/OBstV
Mornings in our house are chaotic to say the least. Actually to be totally honest, that’s an understatement big time. I’m generally struggling to get out of bed because I was working until 2am and baby girl thinks it’s morning time the minute the clock hits 6am. That leaves me at about four hours of sleep, complete exhaustion and pretty grumpy. So I’ve had to create a routine with the husband. One that helps us both out, keeps things smoother and overall keeps all of our health a priority.
Each morning is a little different, but it generally goes a little something like this:
Blake wakes up, Marcus gets her, makes her a bottle and brings her to bed with us to snuggle. We snuggle, she drinks her bottle and then we turn on cartoons for her. That 30 minutes of bottle drinking, snugglin’, cartoon watching fun is pure bliss and allows both of us a little more rest.
Eventually she gets tired of TV and I start to realize I should probably be productive and we roll out of bed. Blake plays with her toys while I figure out something for breakfast and take my Sundown Naturals® Vitamins. I take the B12 Adult Gummies for much needed support with energy metabolism and then Fish Oil Omega 3 to help support my heart, bone and skin health. Marcus rushes around and does his own routine to get out the door for work while I feed Blake and myself. Usually while Blake is eating I do some sort of meditation or reading, even if it’s just for 2 minutes, it starts my day off on the right foot.
Marcus grabs his Sundown Naturals® Vitamins (he takes Calcium with Vitamin D3 to help with bone density and B12 for energy metabolism as well, we have a quick family prayer, kiss and hug goodbye and send him on his way to work!
Then my work day begins …
It’s been really nice to get into more of a routine every morning. Quite honestly if you had asked me 6 months ago I would’ve never thought it would be possible. But here I am and I’m saying IT HAPPENED!
One thing Marcus and I knew that we really wanted to fix, was our health. Our lives are busy and we often don’t take great care of ourselves. So we decided we were going to get up a few minutes earlier, cook a healthy breakfast, take 2 minutes for us and take a daily vitamin regimen.
We take Sundown Naturals® Adult Gummy Vitamins for several reasons. One, I’m not a pill swallower. I just can’t do it, so these are lifesaving and well… they taste like candy. Two, they’re free of gluten, dairy and artificial flavors◊ which was great for Marcus because he is gluten intolerant. And three, you can grab them at your local Walmart so they’re easily accessible. You can even take a short quiz here, to see what vitamins are right for you!
As far as keeping our breakfast healthy we usually do quick things like smoothies, eggs, avocados, oatmeal and yogurt. They’re easy to make but full of the right ingredients to start the day off right.
It’s been really good for us and has made a huge difference in our overall day. Not to mention, I have a happier baby and well, that’s a win! 😉
