Dear Future Me
Oh to be young again. I would do things a bit differently (wouldn’t we all?), but one of the most important things I would have done would be to take care of my health a little better. Don’t get me wrong, I am not unhealthy now, but I know there are a few things I could improve upon.
One of my biggest inspirations to get healthier is that I hope to have grandchildren one day. I want to be that cool grandma who gets down on the floor and plays with the babies and kids. I want to be able to take them to the park, on vacations, and bake for them. Basically most of the things I did with my own kids. I don’t want to be frail if I can help it. I would like to be spunky and able to move about easily (to keep up with the kids too!).
There are so many ways I could improve my health, and one way is to be better about taking multi-vitamins, or specific vitamins. Another way would be to eat more fruits and vegetables. I really hate to admit it, but I don’t think I meet the daily minimum amounts each day. I am hoping that between increasing my intake of fruits and veggies and taking Nature’s Bounty supplements, that my body will have all of the nutrients it needs. One product I will definitely take is Nature’s Bounty® Probiotic 10, which supports digestive balance and healthy immune function. Super important!
Being healthy is more than just physical, of course. We all need to be healthy mentally and emotionally as well. Taking care of ourselves now could pay off in a big way as we age.
Nature’s Bounty is a brand I know and trust and I know I am getting quality products. In fact, they use the finest ingredients, mixed with the latest breakthroughs in nutritional science to provide the supplements that we need. I have used their items in the past and since they have about 50 years of experience, I am confident that they know their “stuff”! I haven’t used them enough though, and that is where part of the problem lies, and one of the things I want to improve upon.
Now is as good a time as any to start taking better care of yourself, so while you are at it, you might as well share your thoughts with others. Did you know that research shows that you are 42% more likely to achieve your goals by writing them down! When you write a letter to your future self about the healthy steps you will take going forward, it feels good, and will hopefully help you stick to your plan. When you look back, you will have something to remind you of your thoughts at this point in life. It is a healthy living commitment of sorts. You will thank yourself in the future.
The other good thing is that when you share, your friends and family can also cheer you on and offer support (and hopefully they will decide to take healthy steps too!).
