Busy mom? 5 easy ways to support your immune system #24HourEsterC #ad

I'm not a doctor or any medical professional at all, but I have learned these tips along the way. Between three kids, a full-time job, extra-curricular activities and a marriage, I am a very busy lady. I have to be proactive about my health. These tips have helped me and hopefully, can help you too!

1. Take a supplement. Taking a supplement, like Ester-C, provides up to 24-hour immune support. It lasts longer than regular Vitamin C, supports heart health and helps maintain healthy skin and gums. I take two 500mg capsules every morning with my breakfast and I'm ready for the day!

2. Sleep. Yes I know sleep is a luxury for moms but I make a conscious effort to be in bed and lights out by 11pm the latest. I don't freak out about not picking up the toys, doing laundry or any other chores that might keep me up past 11pm. If I didn't do it by then, it can wait until the next day. 

3. Get outside. Nothing is more amazing than a breath of fresh air. It invigorates you. I spend all day in front of a computer. I'm thrilled for that 5pm cut-off time when I can get outside and walk to my car. Spring will be here soon so get outside. Put the younger kids in a stroller or wagon, have the bigger ones on a scooter and walk around the block. Stand outside on your driveway for 10 minutes. Anything, just get outside. You will feel so refreshed.

4. Eat more fruits and veggies. Every Sunday morning, I go to the market and do my weekly groceries. I make sure to stock up on fruits and veggies (strawberries, clementines, apples, carrots, cucumber, pears, grapes). When I get home, I put small portions of them into ziploc bags and toss them in the fridge. In the mornings, I line up the lunchbags, toss fruits and veggie baggies in all the bags, including my purse, and those are everyone's snacks during the day. I also make smoothies for the kids and add veggies to our dinner but the baggies are the easiest way to make sure we all snack on something good for us!

5. Don't be afraid to be silly! Laugh, laugh ALOT! Laughter decreases stress and makes you feel good. I am not a serious person at all. I love to make my kids laugh and vice-versa. One of my favorites is to sing loudly in the car. They all get a kick out of it. Soon enough, everyone is giggling.

  1. I have been taking a C supplement right now during allergy season. I get allergies when the trees just start budding.

  2. Supporting our immune system is critical to longevity. I will have to check out the products you listed for myself.

  3. I have been trying to take vitamins every day as my goal is to loose some weight and get healthy this year! Plus just finding out I have sinus disease, I need all the help I can get! Will have to check this out!

  4. I could use some Emergen c between allergies and fibromyalgia I always seem to get sick.

  5. Love this! It seems like everything my kids pick up, I get to, and I can't afford to be sick!

  6. Nice ideas! I need to be better about fruits and vegetables for the kids. I think it will get easier as spring and summer come because we belong to a CSA.
    And sleep is key!
    I love supplements too. And drinking a lot of water helps me.
