How to Stay Healthy So You Can Indulge

How to Make Sure Your Entire Body Stays Balanced — So You Don't Have to Worry About Indulging

We partnered with vitafusion™ Gummy Vitamins to give you a roadmap to keeping your body balanced, so you don't have to feel guilty about treating yourself every now and again.
Despite how "good" we try to be on a daily basis, sometimes life just gets in the way of making it to the gym or doing our 10-step skincare routine at night. There are times when having a social life or even just vegging out on the couch after work needs to take priority. And hey, sometimes you really just need that afternoon brownie — without beating yourself up about it.

That's where the heart of the matter comes into play — how to make sure that when you're indulging in the fun of life, you really are indulging, without getting caught up in feelings of guilt. It all starts with having a solid healthy lifestyle "backbone" that can support you even when you go off the rails a little bit. Because when your foundation is sound, the little indulgences won't knock you out of balance. Keep reading to find out the essential building blocks you need to stay healthy, so that you can feel your best even if you (momentarily!) fall off the wellness wagon.

No matter how much skin care you do or makeup you put on, a radiant complexion always begins from within. Your face is a mirror for what's happening inside your mind and body — it's going to be the first thing that gives you away after a long night out, a stressful week at work, or a greasy meal. However, those are all things that inevitably occur in a well-balanced life! So, to ensure that your skin doesn't scream, "I'm so tired!" to all your coworkers, make sure that vitafusion Gorgeous Hair, Skin & Nails Gummy Vitamins are part of your morning routine. These yummy raspberry-flavored gummies are packed with 11 essential nutrients including biotin and vitamins C and E to support luxurious hair, gorgeous skin, and healthy nails*.

We're not sure who needs to hear this, but just because there are doughnuts in the break room, doesn't mean you have to eat one. The office seems to be this bizarro world where all bets are off when it comes to snacking, drinking copious amounts of coffee, and hunching over a desk with abominable posture. Not to fear — there are supersimple ways you can stay balanced while at work. The key: your secret-weapon desk drawer. Start with snacks — keep things like trail mix, nuts, dried fruit, and even reduced-sugar oatmeal on hand so that you have something to munch on during the 3 p.m. slump that isn't whatever treat is lurking in the office kitchen. Of course, you're probably going to have a cup of coffee in the morning, but make sure to have tea bags ready to sub in after your first cup of joe. Even better, let water be your drink of choice — keep a reusable water bottle at work, along with lip balm, face mist, and perhaps a small desk diffuser to keep you hydrated and dewy all day long.

The best part about staying on track while you're at work is feeling good about treating yourself in your off hours. If you took your vitamins, had a lunch that didn't stray from your healthy eating goals, and ate a snack to be proud of, you'll feel much better about indulging in something for dinner. Whether your eyes land on a slice of pizza, a decadent dessert, or your favorite glass of wine, remember — life is all about balance. There's no shame in luxuriating a little when you have a strong foundation to back it up.
