On Morning Routines (+Vitafive Coupon Code!)

img_0802

It is officially Autumn. And Autumn always seems to bring on the busy, don’t you think? For us, Chet’s semester is in full swing and I’ve been finding my footing at a new part-time job. (More on that later!) When things start getting a little hectic and To-Do lists start to lengthen, I have a few tactics that simplify my morning routine and set me up for a great day ahead…

Taking vitamins. With changes in weather (and changes in how many gross people you’re going to encounter on a daily basis….HelloooOO Back to School Time!) comes the possibility for picking up all sorts of ookies. So, I’m super stoked to always have a month’s supply of vitamins on hand. My vitamins come from vitafive, the brilliant and budget-friendly subscription service. I take my pre-packed, daily dose each morning. (Scroll down for why I love getting my vitamins from vitafive.)

Keepin’ it simple. While I love smoothies, egg bennies, and avocado toast as much as the next girl; keepin’ breakfast simple helps me streamline my morning (and allows me a few more minutes for scrolling through my IG feed). I stick to oatmeal most mornings and leave longer recipes for less busy seasons of life.

Peruse the news. I like to allocate time in the morning to hit up a few favorite websites. I scan for articles that look interesting, read a few, and save the rest for when I have some free time. That way, later in the day, I won’t feel pulled from productivity to click my way into a time-sucking, internet black hole.

Wash hair the night before. I used to dread my morning routine simply because washing and blow-drying my hair always felt so. damn. DAUNTING. Yes, it took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out I could just wash my hair the night before and have much more pleasant mornings. No, I will never look back.

Forward focus. While at bedtime I like to reflect back on something I’m grateful for, my mornings tend to be more forward focused. Whether sketching out my day in a planner, writing a To-Do list, or just taking a second to get internally amped; I find it helpful to pick at least one thing I’m super excited for in the day to come.

Need a little nudge to place your order? Here’s what I love about vitafive:

  • Vitafive has a ton of different vitamins that you can order in various combinations. Pick from one of their pre-formulated packs or create your own custom pack! I love the Essentials Pack for general wellness (multivitamin, D3, and Omega 3) and am currently taking the Active Pack (calcium, D3, and CoQ10) to help me keep up with these chock-full days.
  • Stacked up against supplement prices at Whole Foods or GNC, vitafive’s cost breakdown of $1 a day is totally affordable.
  • It’s incredibly convenient to have all your vitamins pre-packaged together for each day of the week. They’re all in one place and ready to go! Not to mention, you don’t have to keep up with multiple bottles running out at different times and remembering to re-purchase. Vitafive will just send you your next month’s supply.
  • They’re gummies! Sure, I CAN swallow pills but that doesn’t mean I WANT to. Vitafive’s gummy vitamins taste great!

Time to get to work!

Thank you so much, vitafive! I love starting my day with your vitamins.

Review: Vitafive Vitamin Subscription

review

Here’s the deal. I KNOW I feel better when I take vitamins. Remembering to take them consistently is something I always promise myself I’ll be better at. But the thing is, for YEARS, as hard as I tried I just couldn’t fall into the routine. Some brands gave me a stomach ache unless I swallowed them just the right time after eating a meal. I would miss the window once, twice, and then never pick them back up. Others I remembered to take for weeks…and then forgot to re-purchase once I hit the end of the bottle. I sorta resigned myself to this pattern.

But then I found out about vitafive. Holy smokes! Why didn’t someone think of this sooner? As you may know, I’m all about eliminating decision fatigue and automating aspects of life to use that brain space for more important things. I’ve found ways to do this with my money, my clothes, even my snacks! Why not my vitamins, too?

So, here’s how this genius system works! For about $1 per day vitafive will ship you a 4 week supply of gummy vitamin packs. You can either choose from one of their pre-formulated packs or create your own custom pack. I opted for the Essentials Pack which includes a multivitamin, Vitamin D3, and Omega 3. Other pre-formulated options include:

Beauty Pack – Biotin, Vitamin C, Omega 3

Active Pack – Vitamin D3, Calcium, CoQ10

Brain Pack – Omega 3, Vitamin D3

Heart Pack – Vitamin C, Omega 3, CoQ10

Sleep Pack – Multivitamin, Melatonin, Vitamin D3

Immune Pack – Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Omega 3

(There are also packs for kids!)

I love the convenience factor! Your daily vitamins are pre-packaged together for each day of the week so they’re all in one place and ready to go. This is absolutely perfect for tucking in your purse as you head out the door or packing in your lunchbox along with your food. And signing up for the subscription service means you don’t have to think about re-purchasing a bunch of different bottles at different times as you run out. You’ll simply receive a package with your next month’s supply!

And look how cute these little gum drop vitamins are! There’s something to be said about the convenience of a gummy, too. I’m not embarrassed to say that, even as an adult, swallowing pills isn’t all that fun. If there’s a way around it I’m all about it. It certainly helps that this particular option tastes delicious. So, they’re fun to take post-meal or as a little mid-morning “snack”. They’re also all gluten free and vegetarian (some are vegan, too!).

I definitely wouldn’t want to swallow a huge horse pill on the beach. A delicious dose of gummy vitamins? Yes, please!

I would recommend vitafive to ANYONE looking to live a little healthier, searching for consistency when it comes to taking vitamins, or seeking an easy and fun vitamin option!
