Spring Cleaning My Health + Nature Made Digestive Probiotics


This post was sponsored by Nature Made as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

When we think of Spring, we immediately think “Spring cleaning”.  I love getting our home in order again for the new season, but I’m also giving my time and focus to something even more important: my health!

The winter months can definitely take a toll on all of us. There’s something about the cold season that affects anything from the kinds of foods we eat to the types of activities we want to participate in. In other words, we easily fall into those bad health-related habits and tendencies around the winter time.  But now that I’ve said hello to Spring, I have also resolved to ditch those bad choices and I’m excited to spring forward to a healthier new me!

And because I love sharing about good stuff, I’m sharing with you what I’ve started doing to clean out my winter health baggage and one-up my health!

  • I’ve started committing to do my daily fitness workout at home again. My husband and I bought our new elliptical machine last year and I honestly have been very lazy about exercising so that said, I’ve said hello to my fitness again!  Exercise is such a huge stress reliever for me and I feel more energized all day after my morning workout.
  • I cleaned out our pantry and removed junky snack foods that make it all-too-easy to nibble unhealthily!  I’ve also started making a list of foods I’d rather have for me and my family to have handy for my next shopping trip.  This way, we’ll have something tasty but healthy and ready to go the next time we think about ordering a pizza!  And definitely, more fruits and vegetables on the shopping list!
  • I’ve started making my healthy morning smoothies again!
  • I know it’s not totally warm enough to spend time outside yet where we are. But whenever it’s warmer, I invite my husband and kids to go for a walk with me at our local park. Those walks always make me feel relaxed and revived physically and emotionally –  especially after being cooped up in the house everyday these past cold winter months.  I am looking to do this more in the mornings by myself at least 3-4 times a week whenever the weather permits.
  • Personal confession: I’ve been like most people when it comes to seeing doctors.  As long as I’m not sick, I’m not going to the doctor. But I’ve changed my attitude about seeing my doctor because I realized, those preventive doctor visits will benefit me greatly in the long run when it comes to maintaining good health, and will help both me and  my doctor catch any developing or potential health problems sooner rather than later.  So that said, I made my first appointment to see my primary doctor and I’m so glad I did.

  • For my gut health, I take Digestive Probiotics Daily Balance by Nature Made. You know, it takes care of those gut nasties we all experience like occasional gas, bloating and abdominal discomfort. It’s safe and gentle to take everyday and I  also really love the fact that they’re gluten-free and contain no dairy, synthetic dyes, artificial flavors and preservatives.

Nature Made is #1 Pharmacist Recommended and is actively pursuing health and wellness through product innovations and quality ingredients.  I can say that Nature Made is my trusted brand of vitamin supplements in helping me make my every day just a little healthier!  They help me maintain a balanced, healthy lifestyle and motivates me to one-up my health!

    Great spring cleaning tips. I now know the value of probiotics!

  2. 04/04/2017 / 9:34 pm

    I never realized the importance of probiotics until I got older. Thanks for showing the benefits of taking these. Natures Made is a great brand for supplements.

  3. 04/03/2017 / 12:08 pm

    Probiotics is definitely important especially when it comes to our metabolism. I think it keeps our body healthy and it’s a must to have. This sounds like an awesome supplement!

  4. 04/02/2017 / 11:22 pm

    Nature Made is my favorite brand for vitamins but I haven’t tried the Probiotics just yet. I may need to make that happen really soon.

  5. 04/02/2017 / 12:16 pm

    We take probiotic drinks but we haven’t tried the capsule form yet. My niece was recently advised by her doctor to take probiotics everyday. She suffered from renal disease 4 years ago and any infection of any sort can cause renal insufficiency. These probiotic preparations has kept her immune system up and we’re happy she’s doing great right now.

    Junk food in the house does give you a good excuse to nibble. It’s smart to remove it. My SIL swears by her probiotics. I will give them a better go at some point.

  7. 04/02/2017 / 2:15 am

    I just started my probiotics and I am amazed at the difference it made in my health. Yes, try these, it’s life-changing!

  8. 04/02/2017 / 12:37 am

    I’m so well-informed when it comes to my health, healthy products, and essential supplements, and I KNOW that probiotics are one of those essential ones…yet I still haven’t bought any for myself!

    We’re big believers in probiotics at our house. I take them a couple times a week for good gut health. My husband a bit more than me because he’s needed antibiotics during different stages. We even sprinkle canine probiotics over our dog’s dinner. NatureMade is a great brand!

    This sounds like a product I could really benefit from! I will have to check them out. I need more probiotics in my life!

  12. 04/01/2017 / 3:44 pm

    I recently started taking probiotics. Well, I’m trying to take them, at least. I’m super forgetful, but I need to make it a habit. I have so many stomach issues that I think are a result of just not having the right environment for proper digestion. I’m a big fan of Nature Made!

  13. 04/01/2017 / 2:14 pm

    This really is a great way to ensure your system is in check. Glad you shared a brand that you can stand by to help keep your digestive system working. I will look into Nature Made digestive probiotics!

  14. 04/01/2017 / 12:01 pm

    This is an interesting article.
    I do hear good things about probiotics and how they can help your digestive system.

  15. 04/01/2017 / 9:11 am

    Probiotics are very important for tummy health. I make sure everyone in my family takes this everyday. Nature made is a brand I really trust when it comes to supps.

  16. 04/01/2017 / 6:52 am

    There are products that talk about probiotics. I think it is about time that I should also have to research more about it. Health is wealth, so I should not take it for granted.

  17. 04/01/2017 / 3:39 am

    Taking a daily probiotic is a must for me. I do love the Nature Made brand and use it frequently.

    These are all great steps for staying healthy. I actually take probiotics every day!

  19. 04/01/2017 / 12:11 am

    I rely on my daily pro-biotics! I am so glad I found one that does not need to be refrigerated a well, so I can take it when I travel!

    I have taken probiotics since getting sick a few years ago. I do feel like they have helped a lot with my digestive health. Nature Made is a good brand for probiotics, even though I am not necessarily brand loyal.

  22. 03/31/2017 / 10:26 pm

    I am about to get serious about my health, and probiotics is a big part of that

  23. 03/31/2017 / 5:43 pm

    Probiotics are necessary to maintain health in this changing weather. Good review.

  24. 03/31/2017 / 5:34 pm

    I’m definitely going to have to look into these. I, unfortunately, have these issues and it gets to be annoying, let me tell you! I’m hoping with a new workout regimen things may get better as well.

    I take great care of my health in so many ways but have been so neglectful with my probiotics. Gut health is so important. Thanks for the reminder!

    I never thought about taking probiotics but I know that probiotics can do wonders and improve your health and immunity a lot. I guess I really need to try this now.

    Probiotics is something I have just started learning about! I am currently on the hunt for some good ones so I will check out the Nature Made brand.

  28. 03/31/2017 / 2:45 pm

    Probiotics are something that is super important in my house. My daughter has always had issues with her stomach and she is always taking some sort of probiotic. She is so much better now that she takes Probiotics.

  29. 03/31/2017 / 2:39 pm

    Probiotics are SO important to your overall health. I started taking them about a year ago, and I feel so much better. I’ll have to try these.
