Making marvelous mornings a daily occurrence is absolutely possible! If you want a healthy, happy life, then getting your mornings right can be your best step forward. Not enough people think about this. Just consider how you start your day. Do you wake up groggy and tired, reaching for that cup of coffee with eyes half-shut? Do you worry about how much time you have before work every day? Do you stress about the busy day ahead?
If you take a step back, you’ll likely see that this is not a healthy way of doing things. Wearing yourself out can easily happen if you’re not careful, and over the long term the morning stresses are sure to accumulate and drive you a bit crazy.
This is why the morning is the most important thing to get right. This mini-guide will help you do that:
Please join me today in welcoming Breanna, also known as The Medical Mama, to the blog with this guest post. I first came across her blog a few weeks ago and right away appreciated the in-depth research she does on parenting, health, fitness, and more. She is helping women and I’m so happy to have here here. First, here’s a bit about Breanna.

Hi there. My name is Breanna and I am The Medical Mama. I want to first and foremost thank Christy B for allowing me to guest blog today. You can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and my own personal site. I am a mother of 2 beautiful little girls. One is 5 years old, and the other is coming March 5th. I have a background in nursing (Pediatrics) and education (K-12). Again, thank you for having me and reading my article today.
Let’s jump right in.
Your Child is Watching You.
Have you ever sat and thought about what you put in your mouth? Have you ever sat and thought about what your child watches you put in your mouth? Or what your child sees as your eating habits and health habits? I never really thought about it until I got bit by the “fitness bug” about a year ago. I noticed while my husband and I started counting calories and talking about it out loud our daughter started becoming obsessed with calories and eating. Granted, she didn’t know what a calorie was or what it meant, but she knew it was important for getting fit and eating healthy. She then started making healthier choices on her own. I can proudly say, to this day, that she continues to make healthy eating habits a priority.
We all know that we need to be healthy in life – or at least try as hard as possible to be. Although sometimes, it’s so much easier in theory to lead a healthy lifestyle, it’s something that we should all strive for. But when you’re busy, and you can’t always focus on getting the right diet in place, you’re going to need a little helping hand. And that’s where supplements come in.
Topping Up Those Vitamins
Firstly, look into a great vitamin supplement. Of course, the variety you choose is often going to be very personal to you and your lifestyle needs. But, because we can’t always guarantee that we’re getting enough vitamins through what we eat, taking a multivitamin supplement can boost your health.
Although protein is a key macro that we know we all need in our diets, it’s not always easy to ensure that you’re eating enough. This can especially be the case if you’re not much of a meat eater, or you are a vegetarian or vegan. So a suitable protein powder or supplement can be a great idea for you.
And, finally, you’ll want to think about how you can boost the antioxidants in your diet. Although foods like blueberries are powerful antioxidants, you can also use key extracts in your diet too.
