My Christmas shopping habits have changed…

frustrated Christmas shopper 2I know in the past I have spent literally DAYS worth of time stressing about what to give my loved ones, friends and kids’ teachers at Christmas.  I stand in the stores holding various items in my hands, second guessing myself for so long that I end of buying all of the items, thinking I will return what I finally decide NOT to keep, only to never have the patience to return those orphaned gifts (I have two bins worth of “any occasion” presents sitting in my storage closet because of this).

OR, I stay up way too late trying to shop online for clothes that may or may not fit or be good quality, for technology products that I am clueless about, for seasonal gadgets I would NEVER normally buy, and I always end up spending so much more money than I ever planned on spending.

So, what am I doing different this year?  I have decided to make it simple, easy and less expensive on myself, all while giving thoughtful and useful gifts of love.  I am giving those I care about Gifts of Health this year, all with a 100% money-back guarantee.  Now that’s worry-free shopping at its finest 🙂

Most of you guys know that my family and I have totally changed our health around over the past 2 years. Though we continue to improve our eating habits, food choices and lifestyle, we got our kick-start on this amazing path by adding Shaklee products into our daily lives.  Shaklee only equates to 1/6 of my day. That’s it.  But, it’s that simple, healthy addition that make the BIGGEST difference.  Why?

First, I can completely trust Shaklee. That is saying a lot from a mother who obsesses about what my family eats, drinks, watches on TV, media, music, if my kids look both ways crossing the street,… you get it.  I’m a little neurotic when it comes to my family’s health and well-being.  So, trusting products that we ingest every day and put into our home have to be the best quality, especially if I am going to spend our hard-earned money on them.

Second, we FEEL completely different, in a very good way!  Our energy is solid, and our time spent working out is so much more effective.  I don’t spend 1 hour 10 minutes on the spin bike anymore, plus I never imagined I would run an 8 minute mile again!  Also, I no longer obsess about getting on the scale or how my clothes fit.  I. Just. Feel. Great.  Better in my early 40’s than I felt in my 20’s! Our skin, hair and nails are stronger than ever, and cognitively, we are accomplishing more tasks/work/at home projects, etc. than we ever have.  My husband just put in a complete patio and two huge sidewalks within a few weekends, which he never had the energy and strength to do before.  I’m LOVING his home improvements!

Lastly, I am able to help so many other people get to a better place of health.  I am very motivated yet so humbled when I see someone I care about or even someone I just met take control of their health.  The transformation is inspiring.  To watch a person with Type 2 diabetes or Fibromyalgia or another chronic condition start to feel better, or to see a mother increase her energy to keep up with her busy life makes me want to promote Shaklee more and more everyday.  And, it’s not just “a product” you get with Shaklee…it’s education about healthy living and taking care of our world.  We CAN take control of our health, and we have to, especially with the changes in our healthcare systems (another topic altogether).  In the end, we are going to spend our money on either being healthy or being sick.  My family has chosen to spend our money on being healthy.

With all of this being said, I want to let you know about an offer going on through Nov. 16th that I encourage you to take advantage of.  Shaklee is offering FREE SHIPPING now through this Saturday, Nov.16th on all orders $200 or more.  I will be crossing off many names on my Holiday Shopping List with this offer.  Below are links to some great ideas for Gifts of Health.  Those you love will totally appreciate you thinking about their health this season.  Last year, I gave my children’s teachers Gifts of Health, and they are still thanking me for their “thoughtful gifts”.

Ideas for Gifts of Health:  You can take any of these products and add a nice holiday card saying “Love and Good Health to you this holiday season”.  I know there are many options below, but Shaklee has so many clean, healthy products that I had a hard time choosing which ones to highlight.

Vivix A life changer!!!  We use this daily. Absolutely love Vivix!  It has helped millions with arthritis, fybromyalgia, other auto-immune disease, plantar faciitis, and so much more.  Only Vivix contains both resveratrol and a proprietary phytonutrient blend. This phytonutrient blend harnesses the powerful antioxidant properties of rare muscadine grapes and has been shown to be 10X more powerful than resveratrol alone in slowing a key mechanism of cellular aging.

NutriFeron:  Incredible product!!!!  A Shaklee exclusive, NutriFeron is a patented, clinically proven blend of immune-strengthening plant extracts. When used daily, it increases the production of your body’s natural interferon, a critical activator of the immune system. NutriFeron works at the cellular level, by rapidly activating your immune system’s defenses.

Vitalizer:  This is where it all started for me.  The Women’s Vitalizer vitamins was the first Shaklee vitamin I started using.  I noticed results within the first few day – first week, and I have been feeling the difference more and more with every month I continue to use Vitalizer.  BONUS:  you get a Free Shaklee Membership (worth $19.99) with Vitalizer.

Shaklee Turnaround Kit:  start someone you love on a proven path to health and better weight management. See more information and FAQs about this incredible product pack here.  Free Shaklee membership comes with this kit.

Shaklee Lean and Healthy Kit:  I use this kit every month. Love the simplicity of it.  Great gift for those who need more energy and essential nutrients in their diets.  Free Shaklee membership comes with this kit.

Shaklee RX for a Healthier Life:  My husband uses this kit every month. It has made a WORLD of difference for him. RX for a Healthier Life is supported by 26 scientific studies and is packed with more than 100 powerful vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, polyphenols, omega-3s, probiotics, protein and fiber. It’s the world’s best foundation for health! Plus, it is the best MONEY SAVING option at Shaklee, IMO. You can get another Shaklee product (valued at up to $100 retail) for just $10, every month you are on AutoShip! So, I can get $100 worth of my favorite products for $10 because my husband gets this kit 🙂

Meal Bars for people On the Go:  taste awesome, give me good energy, especially when I am on the go and cannot make a healthy meal for myself.

Snack Bars for people On the Go:  just like the Meal Bars, these protein-packed snack bars have saved me from making bad food choices, like buying pre-made convenience foods that end up making me feel horrible and bloated.

Energizing Smoothies:  I can’t say enough about Shaklee’s protein mixes.  There are SO many “shake companies” out there now trying to sell fast and cheap weight loss solutions that are just not sustainable or truly healthy.  This is another product I FULLY trust.  This product nourishes your body and gives you essential nutrients to build health in your body. They contain NO artificial ingredients or preservatives. They are clean and easy to use and to digest.  My family thrives on Shaklee Energizing Smoothies.

Energy Chews:  great to keep in your purse, backpack or briefcase. Shaklee Energy Chews provide a clean burst of healthy energy to help you get that extra edge when you need it most. Each chew contains a scientific blend of caffeine from natural green tea extract, plus L-tyrosine, L-theanine, B vitamins and vitamin D. And there are no artificial flavors, sweeteners or added preservatives you’ll find in other energy products.

Energizing Teas:  A refreshing energy boost!  Forget coffee and amped-up sodas. Here’s a safe and natural way to head off the slumps when you need a quick pick-me-up. An exclusive blend of antioxidant-rich green, white and red teas, as well as taurine, naturally boosts your energy and enhances alertness. Enjoy morning or afternoon, hot or cold.

Pure Performance Sports Nutrition Products:  for the athlete!  My kids are year-round athletes.  I trust these performance products (like the Shaklee Olympic Pure Performance Team) to perform my best!  Easy, safe and clean replacement for Gatorade or PowerAid drinks.  Fact: A member of the US Doping Committee recently joined the Shaklee Pure Performance Team to help promote Shaklee products to current and up-and-coming Olympians as a clean, safe and LEGAL way to supplement.  More proof that Shaklee works and is safe.

ANY of the Shaklee Get Clean Products for Your Home:  My home is now toxic-free because I only use these safe, effective cleaners in my home.  I also save a TON of money.  Ex:  one bottle of window cleaner costs me $0.05.  Yep, a nickle.  I can make 3500 bottle of window cleaner with just one bottle of Basic H 🙂

ANY of the Shaklee Healthy Beauty Products:  I use the Enfuselle skin care line from Shaklee.  Every month, I notice more improvements in my skin’s look, feel and elasticity. There are several great gift ideas in this line!!!  Guys, you could find many gift options in this line for the women you love.

Here are links to my favorite clean, add-on Shaklee supplements:

  • Chewable Vita-C: Great for kids!  My kids love these!  A healthy immune system is your body’s most powerful weapon in its daily battle against smog, smoke, and other environmental assaults.  Our chewable Vita-C has a fresh citrus flavor making it ideal for anyone who has trouble swallowing tablets.
  • Vita-D3:  Add some sunshine to your day with Vita-D3™! Vita-D3 provides 1,000 IU of high potency vitamin D3 to help your body thrive!
  • Stress Relief Complex: offers nutritional support that helps you get through the day in a calm, alert and healthy way.  It’s powerful ingredients are designed to provide relief from tension  — without making you drowsy.*  Includes L-theanine, ashwagandha, beta sitosterol, and L-tyrosine.
  • Alfalfa: contains a wide range of nutrients, including calcium (= to full glass of milk), phosphorus, and magnesium, as well as chlorophyll, bioflavonoids, trace minerals, and vitamins.
  • Defend and Resist:  When you feel that first tickle in your throat, help your body respond to seasonal challenges by giving your immune system what it needs to stay strong.

There are so many other Shaklee products that I could highlight, but I don’t want to overwhelm you.  Here is the link to the Shop Tab on my website if you want to browse more on your own. If you want to know more about Shaklee memberships (to save 15-25%), more about Shaklee as a company/business, or About Me, please visit my Shaklee home page.

As always, I am happy to answer any questions you have. Take care and Be Well! Eva
