The first 3 months of the year are insane for me at work, so I always wait until the early spring before I vow to improve one area of my life.
There's just something about the days getting longer and warmer that makes me want to make a change. I'm one of the rare people that doesn't actually dread the thought of change. It's the chance to wipe the slate clean and accomplish something new. The problem is finding something I'll actually be able to stick to.
I always have the best intentions and shell out for some expensive gym membership, but my schedule is so unpredictable, I never really make the most of it. I like to work out but find going to a pay-as-you-go class or two a week works better for me.
While the first 4 months of 2020 have gotten off to a great start for me, work has gotten even more stressful, and I've been feeling exhausted and run down overall. I take B12 and Turmeric supplements, but no matter how much sleep I get, I'm constantly tired. I was chatting to a coworker about not feeling myself at our office gift exchange, and she recommended hundred.
I'm already taking vitamins, so I told her that it probably wouldn't help, but she explained that hundred's vitamins are customized just for you. She said she too had always taken vitamins, but once she started taking ones that were tailored to her exact needs, she felt so much better.
I checked out hundred's site and liked that they had a pretty in-depth quiz asking about your exercise habits and health goals. The quiz covered things I would never even think of, like if you get UTIs often (what girl doesn't?!) and other questions about exercise habits, sleep, nutrition, and stress ( in a constant state of stress, check).
What I really loved is that the hundred quiz asked me what my goals are. I want to feel less stressed, get more sleep, and improve my energy. From there, they formulated my custom mix of vitamins. Hundred recommended supplements I'd never even heard of; Krill Oil, an anti-inflammatory, Pre / Probiotic, for gut health, and Cranberry to help with UTIs.
They also suggested a melatonin supplement to help me fall asleep a little easier. I decided to add their CLA supplement to the mix, too. It's got caffeine in it, which is supposed to help boost your metabolic function.
Right At Your Door
Take The Quiz!
Hundred's vitamin mix comes in individual daily packs that have my name on them, so I know exactly how much to take every day. Plus, having them shipped right to my door every month felt like something even I could stick to - it couldn't be easier!
I chose the monthly plan because I saved 15%. Plus, it's easy to tweak or cancel your plan at any time. My hundred membership also gave me access to ongoing support from a nutritional expert, as well as quarterly health assessments. My friend told me how helpful it has been for her, so I'm looking forward to having that continued support.
My personalized vitamins arrived the Monday after the clocks went forward(I'll never get used to losing an hour in bed ) in a cute turquoise box. Having the daily packs already portioned out made sticking to taking them so much easier - I just grab them on my way out the door in the morning. Hundred says it can take 2 months to form a habit and feel the difference, but I'm already sleeping better, thanks to the melatonin.
I always just assumed that all vitamins are the same quality, but hundred's are in a league of their own. They source the highest quality ingredients from around the world, resulting in better absorption. Turns out, the old supplements I was taking had mostly filler ingredients.
It feels good knowing that I'll be easily able to stick to this new healthy habit, and what's more important than improving your health?
