Calm. Ok, ok, I know it’s not a word often used describing life as a mother of three. But hear me out here: As the girls get bigger, I’ve been working on making time for myself – it does wonders on clearing my mind and helps me stay calm and relaxed.
I’ve been adding Natural Vitality CALM to my water in the morning and/or evening. CALM is a powder that promotes healthy magnesium levels and balances your calcium intake. As you probably already know good health is all about balance and Natural Vitality CALM is a magnesium powder that represents one reliable and natural way of creating your moments of zen. The best part? The Raspberry Lemon flavor is fruity and amazing (but they also have an unflavored powder), they both dissolve so well into drinks that you don’t even notice you’ve added a powder!
Let’s talk about magnesium. Up until a few years ago, I never gave it much thought – until I learned that magnesium helps to regulates blood sugar, muscle function, and blood pressure! It also helps with energy creation – that is, turning food into energy. I began incorporating magnesium after reading a few studies about how it can actually help with migraines and stress!
My Calming Morning Routine
I’ve been waking up earlier this year, so I can get a jumpstart on the day. I take this time to sneak in a mini yoga session or 5-10 minutes of simple stretches.
I finish off my “me time” with a cup of tea or a glass of cold water with a spoonful of Natural Vitality in the Raspberry Lemon flavor. in peace, before the morning hustle starts.
After I finish my glass of water, I head into the bathroom to wash up, and curl my hair. There is just something about doing my hair every day that makes me feel so much better. I do this even if we don’t have big plans for that day! I have found, if I have a lazy morning, and don’t “get ready”, my whole day is thrown out of wack!
These simple steps do SO MUCH to clear my mind, and start my morning off stress-free… even if London is having a meltdown about her socks, or Peyton finds a blank homework sheet that was supposed to be completed the night before.
At night, right before bed, I have a big glass of water, with my Natural Vitality CALM mixed in. This clears my mind, and gives me that same “at peace/all is well” feeling that I get in the morning during my “me time“.
