As always, all opinions expressed here are my own.
What's the first thing to go out the window when you are stressed out? Sleep? Eating? Exercise? Taking care of your health? What about taking the time to enjoy a beer with a friend? Or giving that special someone a phone call? For every person this may be different. We all react to certain life experiences, specifically stress in this case, in different ways.
For me, it tends to be the first four that I mentioned - sleep, eating, exercise and taking care of my health. When I am stressed out, my mind races at a million miles a minutes, thinking about the to-do list that I need to tackle or even the different outcomes and obstacles that I my face. I've always heard that stress eating is a popular coping mechanism. Me? I have the exact opposite reaction. I'm not hungry when I am anxious. I have zero appetite. And finally exercise and taking care of my health, which is many ways is one in the same.
I recently realized that I needed to make a change. While the stresses of life may not be going away, I can most certainly change the way I respond to these situations. Care/of Vitamins is a custom vitamin subscription that factors in where you are at in life. By taking a short survey online and calling out factors that you want to focus on (immunity, health, heart, skin, stress, etc.), Care/of creates a fully personalized daily vitamin regime specifically for YOU.
So as I continue working towards getting more sleep and finding time to exercise, I can be confident that I am getting my daily doses of calcium, Omega-3, and other vitamins to help get me through my busy days.
