I’ve struggled to keep my energy levels up in the shorter days of winter my entire life and it’s impacted my routine, working out, staying motivated and keeping up with the craziness that is Christmas, New Years and everything in-between. And just when you think you’ll be receiving some downtime to recuperate after the holidays, you will be facing the shortest and coldest days of the year head on.
In addition to putting more focus on my health and wellness routine, I decided to take an additional small step towards supporting my health when this holiday season kicked off. It seems really simple, but so many people forget this daily… and sadly, myself included - VITAMINS! Taking a daily multivitamin can help support and maintain your health and complement your healthy routine.
So, you’re maybe thinking…. “Right, Vitamins! Okay, but there is so much info out there about them and their benefits. Which one is right for me?” I wanted to give you more information on certain vitamins that might help you depending on what your needs are.
