Keeping Our Bodies Healthy and Strong During the Summer

With school almost coming to a close at the end of the month it's time to think about keeping our bodies healthy and strong...cause summer colds and feeling unwell is not worth it. 

We all know that during the summer months, it's crucial to take care of your physical and mental health while enjoying the warmer weather. Apart from maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, taking supplements can help support your wellness goals. Here are some of the best supplements to consider using during the summer:

1. Vitamin D: Since the sun is the primary source of vitamin D, it’s important to get outside and soak up some sun rays. However, spending too much time in the sun without protection can be harmful to your skin. Taking vitamin D supplements can help support your immune system, promote healthy bone growth, and improve your mood.

2. Probiotics: Summer is the perfect season for outdoor activities, which can also expose you to harmful bacteria. Taking probiotic supplements can help support your gut health, improve your digestion, and boost your immune system.

3. Vitamin C: This essential vitamin is known for its immune-boosting properties and can help protect your skin against damage from UV rays. Consuming vitamin C supplements can help reduce inflammation and promote healthy collagen production for younger-looking skin.

4. Omega-3 fatty acids: These healthy fats are found in fish, nuts, and seeds and can help protect your heart health. Taking omega-3 supplements during the summer can help reduce inflammation in the body, improve brain function, and promote healthy skin.

5. Hydration support: Staying hydrated should be at the top of your list during summer. Young Living's Ningxia Red will promote stamina and is a great choice for hydration support and delivering a quick dose of energy.

Incorporating these supplements into your daily routine can help keep you healthy and energized during the summer months. As always, consult with your healthcare provider before starting any new supplement regimen.

Want to know a secret?!

Did you know that there is a huge difference between Young Living® supplements and regular store-bought supplements? 

Young Living® supplements have an 80% absorption rate compared to conventional supplements, which only have a 30% absorption rate. That is a 50% increase and it also means you get way more bang for your buck and the supplements will be that much more effective when you switch.

Are you wondering how it works? Young Living® supplements are infused with essential oils which help increase the assimilation (absorption) of other nutrients on a cellular level and they help remove waste from the cells, which helps detoxify them, in turn causing the cells to function at a higher level.

The bottom line... is that you should 100% be taking Young Living’s supplements over your store-bought ones.

Trusting Your Gut: Why Following Your Intuition May Be Your Best Decision Yet

We've all heard the phrase "listen to your gut" or "trust your intuition" at some point in our lives. And while the concept may sound simple enough, there are countless moments when we find ourselves questioning our instincts and doubting the path that feels right to us. We've been told time and time again that following our intuition may not be the wisest of decisions, but what if we've been wrong all along? As I get closer and closer to finding answers to my health I could have ignored my intuition and agreed with what everyone was telling me. But the little nudge to keep digging to find the answer never left. So here are a few reasons why listening to your gut may be the smartest choice you ever make...they worked for me. I hope you find them helpful.

Your intuition is unique to you...
No two people are the same, and that means that your intuition is a reflection of your personal experiences, perspectives, and beliefs. You know yourself better than anyone, and your intuition is a reflection of that inner knowledge. When people tell you not to trust your gut, it's usually because they're operating under a different set of circumstances or beliefs. What works for them might not work for you, so it's crucial to trust your intuition to guide you down the right path.

Your intuition is backed by science...Science has shown us that our bodies have physical responses to things before our conscious mind is aware of them. If you have a feeling about something, it's often worth paying attention to. Intuition is a result of the way our brains process information, and when we're presented with unfamiliar situations, our intuition is often the first response we have. It's a survival mechanism that's been honed over thousands of years of evolution, so trusting your intuition is, in some ways, trusting your primitive instincts to keep you safe.

Your intuition can help you avoid regrets...
How many times have you thought back to a situation where you ignored your intuition and regretted it? Whether it's a missed job opportunity or a bad relationship, we've all been in situations where we knew deep down that things weren't quite right, but we went against our gut instinct anyway. Listening to your intuition can help you identify potential pitfalls before they become major regrets, and can help you make life-changing decisions that will bring you long-term fulfillment.

Your intuition can help you navigate uncertainty...
Uncertainty is a fact of life, and there are times when no amount of research or analysis can help you make the "right" decision. That's where your intuition comes in. Your gut instinct is your subconscious mind processing information that you might not even be aware of. It can help you navigate those gray areas where there's no clear answer, and can help you make confident decisions that feel right, even when you can't explain why.

Your intuition is something to be proud of...
Finally, it's important to remember that trusting your intuition is a sign of strength and self-awareness. It takes courage to go against the advice of others and make a decision that feels right for you. And while it may not always lead to a positive outcome, your intuition is an integral part of who you are, and it should be celebrated and nurtured.

In a world where we're constantly bombarded by the opinions of others, it's easy to lose sight of our own inner voice. But if there's one thing to take away from this discussion, it's that your intuition is a valuable resource that should never be ignored. Whether you're making a big decision or simply navigating the ups and downs of daily life, your gut instinct can guide you to the right path, even when it seems like the odds are against you. So the next time someone tells you not to trust your intuition, remember that you have the power to make your own choices, and that your gut instinct may just be the smartest one yet.
