I’m starting to feel it… November is in full swing and every morning my bed feels increasingly comfortable. I want to stay curled up under the covers and sleep. It now takes 2-3 cups of coffee for me to start to wake up. My mind and body are getting ready for shorter days, lower temperatures, and holiday bills. I’m definitely getting a case of the winter blues, and with the holidays approaching I’m already starting to stress about buying gifts, sending out cards, and making food. I need to do something about it!
Here is my plan
I’m going to give my mind and body a 1-2 punch: outdoor exercise and vitamins! Just last week I wrote about how I’m making getting 10,000 steps a day easier. One of those ways is to take my dog out for walks. These walks are great for this cool weather funk I’m in. The sun and fresh air do wonders for my mood. Plus they’re great for my dog too!
The other thing I can do for my mood is to make sure I’m getting the key vitamins my body needs. A few days ago I headed over to Walmart to check out the Nature Made® vitamin display in the pharmacy section. Why Nature Made? Because Nature Made is the #1 Pharmacist Recommended brand for many key dietary supplement categories.* Why Walmart? Because they always have low prices, so I don’t need to wait for things to go on sale in order to save on Nature Made vitamins.
My Nature Made vitamin haul
There was a huge selection of Nature Made vitamins, minerals, and supplements at Walmart – score! Here is what I ended up buying:
Nature Made Stress B-Complex
Nature Made Stress B-Complex combines 8 essential B vitamins that help convert the food I eat into cellular energy.† It also includes Vitamins C & E which are antioxidants and essential nutrients.†
Nature Made Vitamin D3 1000 IU
I’ve written about Nature Made Vitamin D3 before in a post about improving your bone health. Vitamin D supports bone, teeth, muscle and immune health. D3 is the body’s preferred form of Vitamin D.† Usually you can get Vitamin D from sun exposure. As the days get shorter in winter, your body finds it harder to get enough Vitamin D. That is why I picked this up while at Walmart!
Nature Made Chewable Vitamin C
I want my immune system as ready as possible for this cold and flu season. That is why, in addition to the Stress B-Complex and Vitamin D, I picked up some Chewable Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps support the immune system.†
Walmart SuperCenters also have Nature Made Probiotics: Nature Made Advanced Dual Action Probiotic has been clinically studied and provides dual support to both your small and large intestine for comprehensive coverage to help support digestive balance and healthy gut flora.† This is perfect for the big holiday eating season!
Win a Walmart gift card
Want to pick up some Nature Made products for yourself? Winning this giveaway would make it a lot easier! You could win one of 60 Walmart gift cards (each worth $50)! Just head over to the Nature Made Retailer Hub to enter. (No Purchase Necessary).
I think a $50 Walmart gift card would help beat those winter blues… and it could help with some of that holiday shopping!
So what do you say? Let’s beat the winter blues together! Will you join me in outdoor exercise and getting key vitamins?
