I started working from home on March 2nd, 2020. Covid was on every headline around the world and the CDC, WHO and every health organization was heeding companies to take preventative measures.
Stay at home orders were expanding throughout the country and my state was no different. The change of pace was honestly a little refreshing at first, but whatever pleasure I derived from it was overshadowed by the anxiety over job security, school closures, imminent health concerns, and the absurdity of the run on groceries, hand sanitizers and toilette paper. So what really changed and how did it affect my life and that of so many others facing the same issues?
In my case, working from home is having two full time jobs.
WFH means having to cook, clean, home-school and supervise kids full time, while carrying a full time "office" job. My routine and that of millions of others has changed dramatically. Our kids were no longer waking up at 6.45 and "out the door at 7:24" to catch the bus. That alone had its challenges. But now, I have to wake them up and herald them through online learning, check their homework and catch them in their little lies from 9-5.
One can't forget that during this time, the kids' routines have changed as well. They're "studying" from home, isolated from friends, sports and activities, and perpetually gaming, which they can now justifiably claim as their only connection to their friends on outside world. Driving me crazy may be their only form of non-virtual entertainment.
As per my office job, a 20% furlough didn't cut back the workload. I still had attend several live Zoom meetings every day to "maintain productivity in this time of crisis".
WFH has meant trying to juggle more activities, and In short, homeschooling + work = skyrocketing stress and anxiety, difficulty focusing and complete physical and mental exhaustion. According to many sources, stress and anxiety levels have risen significantly since the onset of covid. That's why #selfsupplements makes so much sense. It's designed to support my immunity as a top priority plus Energy, or Brain Focus, or an Unwind/Calming blends for people like me.
Everyone needs a healthy immunity, and self supplements give me that in every single product. It feels like I need that now more than ever. Given the health concerns we're all facing, nothing sounds more important to me today than having a strong immunity.
Self IMMUNITY + ENERGY has all of the most trusted ingredients to support a healthy immunity including Vitamin C, D, Zinc, Elderberry, Echinacea, and Mushrooms rich in Beta Glucan. The energy driver is Yerba Mate, which is rich in antioxidants and caffeine, but in a cleaner form that doesn't results in the jitters of coffee.
Self IMMUNITY + BRAIN has my immunity favorites plus the nootropics that I need to focus, concentrate, learn and support my overall cognitive health. It includes Alpha GPC, which is a naturally occurring choline with amazing cognitive benefits. Its also charged with essential amino acids, Acai berry and Vitamins B-6 and B-12 to help me filter out the noise around me and concentrate better on the tasks at hand.
Self IMMUNITY + UNWIND is made to help me "find my happy place". Aside the from immunity ingredients, its loaded with Ashwagandha, my favorite de-stressing and calming ingredient. But it also has essential amino acids, Melatonin and Magnesium to help me relax and have restful sleep when I need it most.
Self+ Supplements only uses ingredients that I recognize and trust. There are no trademarked names or patented blends that I've never heard of and the website provides helpful information on each ingredient. I'm impressed by how it simplifies my routine and does what it promises.
