My first impression of how to have a healthy lifestyle came from my Grandfather. As a very young child, I remember him doing his daily exercises in the dining room. My Grandfather, a military man, knew the importance of a balanced lifestyle. Even in his elderly years, he rode his bike daily. He also took his daily vitamins!
As I grew older I too had an active lifestyle. Then when I hit middle age, I realized I needed more to stay healthy.
I draw my inspiration to live a balanced, healthy lifestyle from my Grandfather, and from nature. Hiking, nature walks and spending time outdoors are activities I love. Enjoying time with my pup Lyla, we go on walks together often.
I love fruits and veggies and eat them daily. I also enjoy blending and creating new smoothie recipes.
Nature gives us so many wonderful ways to enjoy life and stay healthy. We receive Vitamin D from the sun. The soil gives us the ability to garden and to grow plenty of veggies. We get fruit bearing trees if you are lucky enough to live in a place where they grow. Nature provides us beautiful places to explore, ride bikes, and work out.
Still, with a midlife metabolism, that may not be enough.
With all the wonders nature provides us for good health I still choose to one-up what is already provided. I take Nature Made® vitamins for that extra step.
We need different types of vitamins at different stages of life.
As a mid-life woman, I have learned that it is the little choices we make each day that paves the way to a healthy lifestyle.
Nature Made vitamins play a critical role in helping me maintain balance, and be able to stay active! I choose Nature Made because they are active in the pursuit of health and wellness. They are also the #1 Pharmacist recommended brand! You can find them easily at your local Dillions or Kroger locaion.
My personal opinion – the gummies taste amazing and I actually look forward to taking them each day! I kind of feel like I am cheating because they are such a treat to eat!
Nature Made is also a fun brand! They are currently offering two exciting things you can get involved in.

I do not claim to be the perfect person when it comes to eating healthy. I try, like most, I do my best. Exercise is certainly an area I could work on. I know I need to do more when it comes to getting my heart rate up. What I can do, and do daily is take my vitamins. That is how I one-up my lifestyle for balance and health.
