Happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend! The weather was beautiful here in Maine, so it was great to get outside with the family and enjoy it. However, because it is Maine, I woke up this morning to find it snowing hard outside…*sigh* Winter is not quite over yet! I have also been struggling with a cold for the past week. It is the second one in the past few months, so I started thinking about what I may be missing in order to stay healthy. So, I came up with these Five Daily Rituals for Health and Wellness. Check them out!
Five Daily Rituals for Health and Wellness
1. Hydration is Key: Almost everyone is familiar with the advice that “You should drink 8 glasses of water a day”, but why? Proper hydration is important to maintaining health and wellness for a number of reasons. It aids in digestion, maintains body muscle tone, assists the brain to work efficiently, and helps burn fat by making sure the kidneys & liver are functioning optimally. With all of these great reasons to drink up, it should be easy to get in the H2O our body needs each day. However, something so simple can feel very hard to do at times, especially in the winter months. A few tips to ensure you get in your water, include: drink 20 ounces of water as soon as you wake up (before your coffee), carry a large mouthed container with you that makes it easy to drink from, infuse your H2O with slices of fruit or fresh herbs, and set a goal to drink half of your daily water intake by lunch time.
2. Get Your Rest: Proper sleep is essential to staying healthy both physically and mentally. While we are catching z’s, our body is busy at work healing and repairing our blood vessels and heart. A good night’s sleep is necessary for our immune system to function optimally to help prevent illness.
3. Eat a few Super Foods Every Day: “Superfood” is a term to describe anything edible that is a nutritional powerhouse. These foods contain high amounts of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. They may also aid in weight loss and reduce the risk of chronic diseases in individuals that consistently eat them. These nutrient dense foods can help increase one’s energy level and may help to fend off illness. Some examples of superfoods are: broccoli, sweet potatoes, blackberries, apples, bananas, and chia seeds.
4. Exercise often: It is so important to stay active, especially during the colder months. Bundle up and get outside for a short run or walk, even if it is just for 20 minutes. Winter is also a good time to try other activities like a boot camp class, cross fit, or yoga.
5. Don’t Forget the Fiber: Many people know that a diet that is high in fiber helps to promote digestive health and regularity. However, it is also beneficial for heart health as a high fiber diet can help maintain normal blood sugar levels* and lower cholesterol. One quick and easy way to add some extra fiber to your diet is by drinking a glass of Metamucil Premium Blend every day (take as directed).

I found and purchased this delicious, sugar-free product at Walmart.
It is sweetened with plant based stevia and contains natural flavors and colors. It is made with 100% Natural Psyllium Fiber, which helps to curb appetite*. Another great benefit of Metamucil Premium Blend is that it helps trap and remove waste in the digestive tract, which in turn will help a person to feel lighter and less sluggish*! It has become a daily ritual for my health and wellness! Now is a great time to give Metamucil Premium Blend a try by participating in the 2 week Metamucil Challenge. Take just one glass per day for 14 days and experience the benefits of Metamucil’s Psyllium Fiber.
