Did you set goals for your health this year? What about your family's health? These are my top tips for keeping my family healthy this year!

Did you set goals this year? One of my goals this year revolved around health. But not just my health - the health of my family! This can be a challenge with as busy as we all three tend to be {yes, even our baby girl is a busy and social butterfly!}, so here are some tips I am implementing to help keep us germ free and ready to make this year one of our best years ever!

Washing Our Hands

It seems like common sense, but we’ll be washing our hands multiple times a day {especially when we head home from church, school, the grocery store, restaurants, or playdates}. Our baby girl loves washing her hands {she even has a song that she sings when she washes them} and we make her feel SO grown up when she does. We also make sure and avoid soaps that contain triclosin {it's been linked to some yucky stuff}, sticking to brands like Method* and The Honest Company*.

Limiting Processed Sugars

We try not to keep sugary treats or cookies in the house… instead, our pantry and fridge are loaded up with fresh fruits, veggies, nuts, and other whole foods for snacks. On birthdays or holidays, we may make a batch of cookies or have a cupcake {Bliss Cupcakes are our current favorites}, but these really are treats reserved for special occasions.

Filling Up On Nutrients

One of my priorities this winter {and throughout the year} will be making sure that we are counting nutrients rather than calories. I'm working hard to eat as many whole and unprocessed foods as possible. One way that our family makes sure to get plenty of nutrients is by drinking our Shakeology* shakes at least once per day. Everyone in our family loves the shakes, and I can be confident that we are getting plenty of fruits, vegetables, and dense nutrition as part of this meal.

Getting Plenty of Rest

I read an article not too long ago that said being deprived of just one or two hours of sleep over the course of a week can leave you feeling as if you haven’t slept at all! I don’t know about you, but I need my eight hours a night. It helps me be a better mom, a better wife, and a better friend! One of my action items for this year is to make sure that we stick with a reasonable bedtime so that we can be well-rested, refreshed, and ready to start our day!
