“We are all born with a unique genetic blueprint, which lays out the basic characteristics of our personality as well as our physical health and appearance… And yet, we all know that life experiences do change us.”-Joan D. Vinge
Most of us know that we are each made of a complex number of cells, bones, tendons, ligaments, arteries, veins, nails, etc., etc. We are so unique and individually made up in special detail!! No 2 human beings are ever exactly the same, even twins have there own individual genetic make up! So today I ask you, how do you take care of the precious being you are? Do you eat a well balanced diet, sleep, exercise, drink lots of water, and still maintain all your other life activities? It can be hard to keep a balanced diet especially when there is just SO much food to choose from!! That is only the physical part my friends! 🙂
Let’s talk emotional health now! 🙂 Are you happy? Do you feel you have a good amount of control over the life you live? When you look in the mirror are you proud of the amazing individual you see staring back at you? These are some important questions that only you can truly answer for yourself! Here is a factopinion (a word I made up to say it could be a fact or an opinion) Before you can truly love others you must first master the art of loving yourself. Just a little something to think about while you are contemplating your health! ❤
Most people are probably aware that these go hand in hand, but if you didn’t know, now YOU DO! 🙂 If you eat a well balanced, healthy, nutritious diet, you may find that you feel much more energized and excited about being happy. You might consider looking at this list I have made for you 🙂
Vitamin A- To maintain a healthy immune system and good eye sight, (especially the retina)!
Vitamin B Complex- There are 8 different B vitamins!!! B1 is to help your RNA and DNA production and is also known as Thiamin!

And last but certainly not least is B12 and it is also known as Cobalamin and is used to help with your cellular metabolism pertaining to carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids!
Vitamin C- To maintain good cardiovascular health! It also helps me with energy! I find it helps give me energy when I feel low!
Vitamin D- To maintain good bone health! This is also the vitamin used to help you get calcium which is fantastic for your bones! The sunshine has lots of Vitamin D so make sure you soak up the sun when possible! 🙂
