With the beginning of the new year comes a renewed determination to get healthy. We vow to eat better and exercise more. Spend more time with friends and less time online. I know I certainly have a few new health goals that I have set for the coming year! Along with our determination and our defined goals, however, comes a need for quality products for better living. If we continue to buy junk at the grocery store and spend our free time playing online games, our chances of achieving our health goals is slim to none. If you are interested in healthier living this year, here are a few quality products for better living and how to incorporate them into your daily life.
Quality Products for Better Living
Understand how nutrition affects overall health:
You cannot achieve your health goals if you do not understand your own basic physiology and nutritional needs. I am a firm believer in the idea that you really are what you eat.
Clean eating (whole foods, cooked from scratch and minimally processed) along with proper supplements will supply your body with everything it needs to get and stay healthy. Food allergies are becoming a huge concern in today’s population so if you have serious undiagnosed medical issues, consider food allergy testing.
Gluten is highly inflammatory and many people choose to limit consumption even if they don’t have a true allergy. There are many gluten free items available in regular grocery stores. Birch Benders Pancakes are a delicious, gluten-free way to start your day! They start with a perfect blend of wheat-free flours, then add Oregon hazelnut meal, resulting in delicious and all natural pancakes. You won’t even miss the wheat!
Cut back on caffeine:
I know, you love that morning cup of coffee. And that is okay! But, when that morning cup of coffee turns into FOUR cups of coffee with an additional soda or two in the afternoon to keep you going, you have a problem.
Too much caffeine isn’t healthy and you should consider replacing a few of those cups of coffee with herbal tea and water. (or choose safe decaffeinated coffee if possible) My herbal tea cabinet is overflowing with variety. Stash Tea has a wide variety of quality products for better living, whether you are looking for a tea that is therapeutic or one that just tastes good. Here are the two that I was sent to try out:
Organic Gold Cup Chai w/ Turmeric: This golden brew yields a sweet and spicy cup. Aromatic chai spices combine with turmeric, an Indian spice known for its brilliant yellow color and lively flavor notes. Smoother and milder than a traditional chai, this naturally caffeine-free chai is delicious plain or can be enjoyed with milk and sugar.
Organic Lavender Tulsi: A soothing organic tea that blends leaves from the tulsi plant, which has been revered in India for more than 5,000 years. According to folklore, tulsi is a healing balm for body, mind and spirit. Gentle lavender adds its special aroma to create a tea that fosters a sense of calmness and serenity. Naturally caffeine free.

Stop pushing yourself so hard:
Our minds and bodies can only handle so much stress before they start showing signs of distress. We need to learn to say no more often, nap occasionally and accept the fact that we are not perfect.
For many people, striving for perfection just leads to emotional and physical stress. We wouldn’t send our children to school and expect them to learn if they had a horrible cold, yet we continue to push ourselves when we are sick, which makes it hard to get better!
Cold-EEZE® offers a number of quality products for better living and I encourage you to stock up BEFORE you need them!
Choose the right supplements
The NEW Cold-EEZE® Plus Natural Multi-Symptom Relief Cold & Flu lozenges shorten your cold PLUS help relieve cough, congestion, and sore throat. These lozenges are formulated with zinc gluconate, the same effective active ingredient found in the best-selling, clinically proven and #1 pharmacist recommended original Cold-EEZE® lozenges. Each package contains 12 lozenges in a natural mixed berry flavor. They may even shorten the length of your cold.
Simple changes are the most effective:
I have always been a huge fan of the ‘baby steps’ method of getting healthy. If you try to go from the Standard American Diet to tofu and bean sprouts overnight, the chances you will continue that lifestyle are incredibly slim.
Make small changes to your diet and exercise routine for life long results. The Stop & Drop Diet Book has some good ideas to get you started. It teaches readers easy ways to STOP eating unhealthy versions of food they love and the simple, healthier substitutes you should START eating instead.
It’s easy and flexible, and no foods are forbidden! It offers a mix-and-match 21-day meal plan designed for both weight loss and balanced nutrition. For more information, visit StopAndDropDiet.com and for the Stop & Drop online companion course, visit the e-learning platform, EnrichU.
You are what you apply to your skin:
You’ve heard the phrase ‘You are what you eat’ right? Well, don’t forget that you are also every single thing you apply to your skin. I am a huge proponent of natural beauty products since our skin is porous and absorbs everything we apply to it. Slowly start trying out natural beauty products to replace those chemical laden ones that you are currently using.
Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel On-the-Go Refreshingly Clean Towelettes are the only individually wrapped towelette to utilize 100% natural witch hazel. This conveniently sized product allows you to gently remove excess oil and impurities from your skin while continuing your active lifestyle.
The added aloe vera helps restore essential moisture, revealing perfectly clean and naturally balanced skin. They won’t over dry your skin like other towelette products and are formulated with 100% natural witch hazel to be suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
If you were taking up a new hobby or a new sport, you would invest in the proper equipment and supplies, right? Well, when you commit to better health, you need to surround yourself with quality products for better living. Making sure you have a few of these things on hand may help you achieve your health goals this year.
