It’s now February 2017 and for many of us the Near Year is the start of developing the New You. However often we set unattainable health-related goals. (Um, far too often) Which is one of the reasons I’m not signing up for a 10k race.  I’m trying hard to have goals I can achieve!!

Plus there’s competing information out there, which makes it difficult to understand how to be the healthiest version of yourself or to know where to start.

Heres’ some interesting stats:

  • Half of Canadians find it difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle yet 73 per cent wish they were healthier;
  • 62 percent of Canadians make New Year’s Resolutions and the most common resolution, according to 80 per cent of the country, is to live a healthier lifestyle;
    Yet, the majority of the country (86 per cent) agree they never stick to their New Year’s resolutions and many do not even attempt making health related resolutions stating it is too hard to stay on track.
  • Over one third (34 per cent) of Canadians are unaware of how to tackle resolutions

I’ve made an effort to use this Yoga App to help me improve my flexibility. I’m a disaster when it comes to flexibility and it’s time to address this issue.

I’m also enjoying this app because it has a calendar embedded in it so that I can keep track how many days I actually did the 10 exercises. Here’s what January looked like. Not bad eh? As you can see I started off strong and then got distracted with “vacation mode”.

I’m also aware that I need some vitamins in my life!! With nearly 100 years of experience, Jamieson’s team of experts have done the work for you and identified Multivitamin, Omega-3, Probiotics and Vitamin D as the four products Canadians should take every day as a foundation for healthier living.

These four essential supplements provide me with a perfect foundation to baseline health, which targets my digestive system, heart, bone and whole body health.

I’m a big believer in the whole picture; exercising regularly, good food choices (I’m trying), getting enough sleep, and taking Jamieson vitamins. 

I’m also a huge fan of meatless Mondays. There’s nothing like starting off your week with a lot of colourful healthy food.

Here’s wishing you a wonderful New Year that includes a Healthy New You and Jamieson Essentials too!

A few years ago, I walked out of my doctors office with a list of supplements to take. I then found myself at the drug store buying Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Calcium, Magnesium and Iron.

I also bought one of those storage containers. (which made me feel like a senior citizen but knew that it was the right thing to do…LOL).


I also did some research on why I needed to take these supplements:

For example I learned that Iron is essential to our health.  Iron has three important functions in the body including:

 Assisting in the carrying of oxygen from our lungs to the rest of our body

  Helping to produce energy

  Keeping the immune system healthy

Iron Deficiency is caused when the body has an insufficient supply of iron. According to the Centres of Disease Control and Preventions (CDC), Iron Deficiency  is the most common nutritional deficit in the world. As well as the leading cause of anemia. Symptoms of Iron Deficiency are often brushed off or even go unnoticed. This is why I’m always tested when I visit my annual check up!!

FeraMAX® partnered with registered nurse and blood specialist, Leona Dove, to create The Iron Maiden, an online resource where you can learn more about Iron Deficiency, symptoms and treatment options.

I also discussed with my Doctor why patients preferred FeraMAX and she explained that it was easier on the stomach. #goodtoknow

Please note, that it’s really easy to mistake symptoms of Iron Deficiency with the winter blahs.  Therefore, I’m really happy that my doctor is on top of this and I’m regularly tested.

Here’s to your health!
