Mums around the country are waiting in anticipation for schools and day care centres to open up once lockdown restrictions are eased. However, until we get there, work from home, home schooling and the seemingly never-ending planning of lunches and dinners, is leaving us with little (to zero) time for ourselves.
Having me-time is seldom accomplished – as self-care often turns out to be a slump on the couch after a full day. Nevertheless, it is so important that we find small ways to reclaim some time for our own health and well-being so that we can show up for others when they need us most.
Nurture yourself from the inside out
A forgotten and often underrated way of taking care of yourself is checking in on your daily supplementation needs, but sometimes, just taking a multi-vitamin can feel like a mammoth task in between breaking up fights between kids, getting breakfast ready and just simply starting the day.
However, a new and exciting online supplement subscription service, Vitable, allows you to take a five minute online quiz and provides you with a bespoke and affordable health recommendations. A monthly subscription will see you receive 30 individualised compostable packs at your door, making it convenient to take. If remembering to take vitamins is a pain point, then you can set a reminder on your Vitable App AND receive bonus points towards some great discounts. Set and forget – it does not get less stressful than that.
We all know the amazing benefits of staying active on a regular basis. From helping us manage stress to keeping us as fit as a fiddle, keeping active especially during a lockdown is a great way to carve out some me-time for yourself. Setting a goal to move with intention for 30 minutes everyday will help you release those much needed endorphins we all need. Whether you enjoy long walks or intense HIIT sessions, there is likely an exercise or activity out there to suit your interests and fitness levels.
Recharge in nature
If lockdowns have taught us one thing – it is to enjoy the things we so often take for granted. Spend time embracing nature, whether it is a walk in a local park, next to the ocean or simply getting some vitamin D while gardening outside, a healthy dose of nature is one of the sure ways to feel nurtured.
Vitable is Australia’s first vitamin and supplement subscription service that wants to help you take that time for yourself.
Whatever your concern or lifestyle, Vitable will support your wellness needs. Vitable takes away the burden of researching and deciphering what vitamins you need through their easy quiz.
