I call you fellow sojourners, because, while each person who reads this is distinctly different, each of us is on our own little journey through space and time.
It's been over a month now since the New Year arrived, with such a sense of promise. It's been a month now since many of us made those little resolutions that some of us are wont to make.
And even if we never formalized them out loud, perhaps in our hearts, we promised ourselves, that this year we'd do better. This year, we'd make some changes that would improve our quality of life. That would, perhaps, even improve our health.
I've screwed up.
How 'bout you?
I wish I could take a pill that would magically give me vibrant health.
Don't we all?
I sometimes watch Dr. Oz, in hopes of learning what his promos interminably promise will give me the secret to health. And if you've watched his show a few times, I bet you picked up on the fact that on nearly every show, he is offering some new scientific breakthrough in regard to a vitamin or herb, or supplement that will add years to your life/give you heart health/cushion your aching joints/aid you in weight loss/fight cancer and on and on and on it goes.
In my quest to enjoy good health, so as to better enjoy the life I've been given, I'm totally willing to take a little vitamin or a little supplement. My own doctor recommends it: he says that a multivitamin is a good idea. And that there are some supplements that can help my particular health concerns. But which ones? What does a person of my age with my issues need to take to give herself her best chance at enjoying good health?
Have you ever wondered what YOU should be doing to keep yourself running at your own peak efficiency?
|A bit overwhelming, yes? And remember: this is ONE aisle of four more aisles just like it.|
before you know it, it starts to feel like I'm seeing this:
|I don't feel so good anymore...|
What's a body to do?
I read about a site sponsored by Centrum Vitamins and WebMD called Nutrition Possible. It offers trusted information from health sources, nutrition experts AND guided information through a unique self-assessment tool – for free! I created an account, and completed an assessment: quick and easy!
The results of my assessment make it easier for me to choose the vitamins and supplements that fit my nutritional needs, based on the health concerns and goals that I selected. Based on the information I provided, this site made great recommendations for foods I should add to my diet, that provide the nutrients that my present diet lacks. And finally, they offer suggestions for exercises that will help me to achieve my health goals.
One more thing to be aware of: once you complete the assessment, you'll have access to a $10.00 off coupon for any of Centrum's ProNutrient Supplements, if you purchase one of Centrum's Multivitamins. And if you've been vitamin/supplement shopping lately, you know that $10.00 off is a GOOD thing.
What was already good, is about to get better.
