Birth Control + Exercise + Supplements
The last year was weird, crazy, and everything in between. One thing it taught me was that even in the chaos we must not forget our health. And yes I'm guilty of not really looking after my mind and body, especially in the last few months.
I'm bumping my health and wellness to the top of my priority list. I needed something to hold me accountable and keep me on track, otherwise, I'd flake like I do every year.
But not this year cause I have my wellness checklist;
✓ Birth Control
I've been saying I'm going to change my birth control or at least look into new options for ages. So it was the obvious place to start.
My sister told me about Nurx, an online platform for birth control. At first, the thought of not going to my doctor or pharmacy for my birth control sounded weird but then I read about everything Nurx offers. You aren't skipping the doctor or pharmacy, you get a medical consultation for only $15 and your health profile is reviewed by a medical professional before you can request a prescription.
Nurx offers over 100 types of birth control including brand name and generic pills along with the patch, the shot, and vaginal ring so you can stick to what you've always used or discuss new options with your provider and find what suits you. Plus they accept insurance which means it works out at $0, or if you don't for as low as $15.
Now the best part, Nurx delivers your birth control in discrete packaging to your door every three months. No doctor's appointments, no half days from work, no long lines in the pharmacy, just a quick online consultation in your time, friendly and helpful advice, and your birth control delivered to your door.
It sounded perfect and now after receiving my first delivery from Nurx, I'm delighted I've switched. It's the fastest and most stress-free way I've ever gotten my birth control.
✓ Workout App
The gym freaks me out with all those machines and massive weights. But I needed to start working out, thankfully the last year showed that a physical gym isn't necessary.
I downloaded the highest-rated workout app and off I went. I wanted to start off small, just 20 minutes a day and maybe build myself up. The home workouts were great, all I needed was me, a mat and to push my coffee table over. The app is keeping me on track, giving me new workouts every day, and allowing me to schedule a time for them.
I even took it outside and went for a short jog. Fresh air and exercise really is a winning combo.
A vitamin C lozenge when I'm already coughing and sneezing is my only previous supplement history. I always thought, don't I get everything I need from the food I eat? Answer is No!
With so many supplements on the market, I was so confused. Then I came across personalized vitamins and it made so much sense. After a short quiz, I knew what vitamins my body needed to help with my low energy, mood, and vitamin D and E levels.
And after a month of taking my personalized vitamins, I can feel the benefits. But being more active with my new workouts is helping with that too.
The biggest winner of my wellness checklist has to be Nurx. Never having to worry or stress about my birth control might seem small but it is having the best impact on my health and wellness.
If you want a new, fast and convenient way to get a wide range of birth control options, then you have to check out Nurx.
