It’s not hard to get really caught up in the fast-paced life that we all seem to be living these days. Chilling out can seem like an unaffordable luxury when compared to all that we have to get done on any given day of the week. But, as I’ve gotten older I’ve learned that relaxation isn’t something to relegate to the occasional stolen moment. It’s something we should all attempt to work into our everyday lives, even if we need to actually schedule it in our calendars.
Rest and relaxation doesn’t need to be a big production or take a lot of time to prepare for, either. Small changes to many areas of our daily routines can bring big benefits. Here’s how I’ve added two simple products from Culturelle® and Mind Fuel Nest to my daily routine to promote personal wellness on a small scale.

Probiotics are something we hear about all over the place now. They are good strains of bacteria that promote digestive tract health. Most people don’t think about this part of their anatomy much, after all you can’t see it so it can be difficult to understand how it affects many areas of your life from how you feel physically to how you look on the outside.
I had no idea that probiotics can be very beneficial not only to digestive tract health but to the health of your immune system, as well. It makes sense, though, being that 70% of your immune system is located in the digestive tract.
I’m pretty excited (as much as one can be about probiotics, anyway) to have added Culterelle® Pro-Well™ Immune + Energy powder supplement to the list of things I do for my own personal health and well-being. It contains the #1 clinically studied probiotic strain, Lactobacillus GG††. It also provides 100 percent daily value vitamin C to support immune health* and B vitamins for sustaining energy*^.
I’ve tried several brands of powdered health drinks. Some of them didn’t always dissolve fully while others left an aftertaste that I didn’t care for. But, I have to say that the Culterelle® Pro-Well™ Immune + Energy powder packets did dissolve completely, a good early sign!
The next test was taste. The packet states that this product features a Fresh Citrus flavor, and I was delighted to find that it does indeed. It’s a light hint of citrus, too, not the overwhelming tartness that I’ve noticed with some other products that I’ve tried. And the texture is smooth, I couldn’t even tell I was drinking something made from a powder mix. That is pretty awesome.
With a light and refreshing taste, absolutely no hint of an unwanted aftertaste, and no gritty texture – I designate this health find a total win and have added it to my daily routine. Because, I’m just like most people. I don’t pay as much attention to my health or diet as I should. I know this already. But, this one small (and delicious) addition can help me do something healthy for myself without having to think too much about it. Pretty perfect!
With my fast paced life, it can be hard sometimes to remember to slow down, breathe, and relax. I love jewelry, so I think this Peace Love Yoga Bracelet from Mind Fuel Nest Inspirational Jewelry and Clothing is pretty cool. I often have my hands in my line of site because I spend a lot of time working with them while writing, reading, cooking, etc.
Now, I’m reminded when I catch sight of the bracelet about the importance of relaxing and taking Me time on occasion. I’m just a simple, go-with-the-flow kind of person naturally, so the simplicity of the design is perfect. Each handmade silver bracelet is made of sterling silver and silver filled wire with a hook and eye clasp. They are individually hand stamped and made completely in the USA.
Mind Fuel Nest is a company with the purpose of providing products that promote mindfulness and inspiration to help people connect with the beauty and peace in the world around them. They have so many beautifully unique (and useful) items available, there are several pieces that I’ve got my eye on purchasing for myself very soon.
One such piece is the Silver Tone Metallic Birdie and Tree Jewelry Organizer. I’ve got several necklaces with no good way to store them without risking tangles. And trees are something I find incredibly relaxing and soothing to look at, so this may be an item I purchase soon.
Finding ways to inject well-being into your life doesn’t have to be hard. It can really be just as easy as enjoying a cool drink or having something pretty to look at to remind us all that peace and harmony are goals worth pursuing.
How do you bring mindfulness and well-being into your life?
