Summer time is here. School is out. Last summer was so much fun – hanging with my girl at parks, museums, swimming, Tahoe, traveling back to the Midwest to visit family. But one thing I noticed in the midst of the travel and fun was that I stopped taking care of myself. This summer I am going to keep having fun with my family, but keep healthy and active at the same time.

I was so excited to partner with Olly vitamins and try their simple and personalized way to take vitamins. Have you seen Olly at Target recently? Such a cool design that makes it so simple to pick and choose what combo works for you and your family. I went with the gummy women’s multi-vitamin, alpha & omega 3 and picked the heart health for my husband. And I absolutely love that the children’s multi-vitamin has probiotics in it. Check out the “your Olly” section of their site to personalize your vitamin combo. I am really pleased with the taste and texture of the gummies. So easy to take!

5 Way to Stay Healthy and Active this Summer \ alice & lois

I’m sharing five fun ways to stay healthy this summer when it’s hard to find the time for self-care.

  1. Jump rope challenge – have a jump rope contest with the kids each morning.
  2. Chasing scooters & bikes – go out for a run with the kids while they are on scooters or bikes.
  3. Take your vitamins – It is so easy to remind the kids to take their vitamins, but why so hard for the grown ups. Do it all together each day!  In the morning Harper and I take our vitamins together and talk about the importance of drinking lots of water. We both are filling up our re-usable water bottles and carrying them with us all day.
  4. Yoga with kids – Do a 20 minute morning yoga session with the kids at home. They will love being a part of your at home yoga practice.
  5. Eating healthy – try new fruits and veggies each week. Make a certain day of the week a new produce day. Explore the farmer’s market and have fun with trying new things.

I have made a commitment to take better care of myself this summer. I may not have the time to fit in a pilates class, but I can make little everyday changes so that I get more exercise in a fun way that includes my daughter. I’m loving the jump rope challenge every day, my yoga mornings and focusing on how much water I drink is making a real difference. Give these a try and have an active summer!
