I am a Superior Source Brand Ambassador. I received compensation and product for sharing this information with you; however, as always, all words and opinions are 100% my own.

For many of us, our 2014 resolutions and goals included one for our health.  Things like walk more, lose weight, train for a marathon, quit smoking, cut back on sugar, be more healthy in general.  As you’re putting your plan together for the remainder of the year, you might want to consider adding vitamins to that plan.

Now, I’m totally not a doctor (though I have watched every episode of House) but after my doctor prescribed B-12 years ago I’ve been a big supporter.  For me, anyway, it’s amazing how different you can feel when your body has the appropriate amount of vitamins and minerals.  Growing up my Mom was the same way with Vitamin C; when she forgot to take it for a few days, she just didn’t feel as well.

Everyone’s systems are different, but Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Vitamin B-12 are ones I know a lot of people take.  I meet more and more people every day that are even being prescribed Vitamin D, B-12, and others by their doctors.  And this time of year everyone I run into on the street is talking about Vitamin C to stay ahead of colds and other winter-weather yuckiness.

As part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias® I was able to use the new Answers at Walgreens program to find sleep solutions.  All words and opinions are mine.

I’ve always been a night owl, but it’s never kept me from sleeping before.  I’m not one of those people that can fall asleep while draped over the arm of a chair, and I can’t sleep in a moving vehicle, but when I laid my head down on a pillow, I could sleep.  It served me well when I was in college, when sleep was the last thing on my to-do list.  Between classes, being an RA, studying and a social life, who had time for sleep?  So I was thankful that when I did finally have a chance to close my eyes, I didn’t lie there looking at the ceiling for hours, and I didn’t wake til the alarm sounded.

Over the years, though, there has been a shift in my ability to get quality sleep.  Work stress would make me toss and turn, and then I was rarely able to sleep for more than an hour at a time while pregnant.  While I hoped it would resolve itself as Bubbles got older and we had a better nighttime routine, that hasn’t really been the case.  I still keep with the tradition of being able to fall asleep fairly easily, it’s the staying asleep that continues to be a problem.  I wake up to check if Bubbles has kicked her blankets off (again), from dreams, and because the neighbor kids seem to think that 3 a.m. is the perfect time to blare music from their car speakers.  By then the sun comes up and I can’t even think about falling back to sleep (another new development in the past few years).
