Updated: Nov 3, 2018
For the past five years, I have started my mornings off with a simple wellness routine.
I take my vitamins, probiotics, drink water, and get active.

I used to not be a morning person. I would have to be dragged out of bed and my bad mood would stick with me for a good couple of hours. Now, I love waking up in the mornings and starting my day off with my healthy habits.
Not only do I feel better after completing my routine, but I'm excited to take my vitamins because they taste like a treat! If you're not a fan of swallowing fishy tasting pills that are too big for you to gulp-- I have good news: I only take liquid vitamins that taste like a smoothie.
Did you know that, "your body absorbs liquid vitamins better than its pill counterparts do. In fact, the body absorbs approximately 98 percent of the vitamins and minerals contained in liquid form. However, the body only absorbs anywhere from 3 to 20 percent of the vitamins in a vitamin pill. Moreover, liquid vitamins bypass digestive processing and go directly into the bloodstream within minutes" (Source: LiveStrong.com).
So here's exactly how I start off my mornings:
Take a multi-vitamin. A spoonful of Vit-acell Sugar Free Piña Colada is packed with 13 essential nutrients and antioxidants to support healthy joints, improve cognitive function, and enhance energy. Raspberry Lemonade is another great tasting option!
Drink probiotics. A shot of Good Belly Probiotics will settle your stomach of any rumblings from digestive problems like constipation, indigestion, and flatulence. Probiotics are living microorgranisms that lower your gut's pH levels and maintain a healthy digestive tract. It's best to start off with a few sips of the shot and see how your body reacts before taking too much your first time and flushing your gut all at once. For more info, click here.
Have a spoonful of fish oil. A teaspoon of Barlean’s Omega Swirl Fish Oil, Mango Peach is packed with omega-3 fatty acids which reduce your cholesterol, reduce inflammation, prevent dryness in your eyes, and brightens your skin. The best part is that this vitamin has no fishy taste to it-- it tastes like a smoothie, but has no artificial sugars! Try Key Lime or Lemon Zest for my other favorite flavors.
Drink a glass of water. Help eliminate toxins, kickstart your metabolism, and keep your skin healthy with an 8 oz glass of water first thing in the morning. Continue to drink 7 more 8 oz cups throughout the day to ensure you are properly hydrated and your body continues to absorb all of these nutrients you just consumed.
Exercise. Morning workouts help burn more fat, build more muscle, and create a better night's sleep than evening workouts. Jumpstart your day with at least 10-minutes of push-ups/squats/crunches. Otherwise, head to the gym for 40 minutes of strength training plus 10-30 minutes of cardio.
