Summer is in full force, and everyone is busy. It happens every year, and sometimes even the most simple tasks in our life can be forgotten due to the hustle and bustle of everything else going on.
Simple tasks such as taking your daily vitamin and mineral supplement.
We all know how important it is to keep a steady flow of nutrients entering our body, though, so it’s very important to do whatever you can to make sure that you remember to take them.
For some people, remembering to take their vitamins is a routine, and unfortunately, it becomes quite easy to fall out of a routine with only a few missteps. With that being said, there are some methods that can make it easier to remember.
- Set an alarm on your phone – You can set an alarm on your phone to repeat every single day, or at different intervals. Chances are, you have your phone with you almost every minute of the day. Use it as a reminder tool!
- Keep your supplements in a high-view area – If you work at a desk all day, keep vitamins on your desk. If you work from home, keep them in an area that you will view frequently throughout the day. Not only will this provide a reminder to take your supplements, but also make them easily accessible.
- Use a pill organizer – If you’re taking supplements multiple times per day, it’s easy to forget whether or not you took your breakfast dose or not. A pill organizer will allow you to keep things straight.
- Pair supplements with a daily task – There are a few things you do every single day, and pairing those tasks with taking your supplements is a great way to remember to do both. Taking them when you eat, for example, is a good habit to start.
It can be difficult for some people to get into a routine such as remembering to take their supplements, but implementing some of the easy methods above will help you complete one of the most important tasks of your day.
