New Year + New Routine = Enter Vitamine Wellness – Amanda Jochum, RD, LMNT, LD

With the start of every New Year, we often find ourselves evaluating our habits, lifestyle choices, diet plans, exercise routines – and the list goes on. However, all of this evaluation can bring stress and uncertainty as to where to start. The thought of developing healthier habits to lead a healthier lifestyle can be overwhelming and can even halt a person’s motivation to make that first step to develop these healthier habits. 

If you are feeling the stress of developing healthier habits, consider the resources available within Vitamine Wellness. Vitamine Wellness is our personalized vitamin subscription program which was created to help individuals continue to meet their health and wellness goals by utilizing the addition of vitamins and supplements to support a healthy lifestyle. Vitamine Wellness is especially helpful because the large selection of vitamins available can sometimes seem confusing.
