Ok, now I’m a believer.

When I first heard about daily probiotics I thought it was some kind of vitamin.

‘Sure, I’ll try it!’ I thought. I’m all for getting in vitamins, all the A D and Cs

But when I investigated the package I quickly realized these were not vitamins.

Probiotic are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health. Particularly your digestive system.

“Right!” I said to myself. “I’ve heard of this kind of stuff in some yogurts.”

I set it aside and told myself I’d come back to it later. This seemed like something for old people to use, or people with stomach issues. Not something I needed.

The New Year hit and one of my goals is to better myself physically, mentally, and emotionally. From drinking more water, exercising a few times a week, learning piano, meditating, finding better makeup for myself, taking better care of my skin—it’s been an interesting process.

A couple of weeks ago I tried a Dead Sea facemask for the first time (loved it). I’ve also started setting alarms throughout the day to remind myself to chug a glass of water. Most recently I decided to give probiotics a try.

Ya’ll, I kid you not, I have noticed a difference from the probiotics. I wouldn’t say this if I didn’t believe it. With all my recent travel I have been getting jet lagged and I have been getting airplane bloat (really, this is a thing I recently Googled when I swore I was looking pudgier after my flights). All of the stress of getting behind on work, keeping up with homeschool, and crazy ambitions like starting a daily vlog… They all catch up to me and effect my body.

At the risk of sounding like an infomercial… I started taking Align and I noticed a difference. I don’t feel bloated and I feel like my stomach insides are all functioning properly. I dig it.

Have you ever tried a probiotic? 


Align is the #1 Doctor and Gastroenterologist recommended probiotic brand‡. It fortifies your digestive system with healthy bacteria 24/7*§. Only Align contains B. infantis 35624, a unique, patented probiotic strain.

There is also Align Jr. which comes from the same makers and has no artificial sweeteners and no artificial colors and with continued daily use, helps fortify kids’ digestive systems with a unique healthy bacteria 24/7* with their tasty chewable tablets for kids 6-12 and is great for kids when they are adjusting to new or stressful schedules as well.

Align partnered with bloggers, such as me, to get the word out about its great product benefits. As part of this program, I received compensation for my time.

I have a thing for challenges. Challenges are like a fun competition where everyone wins. In December we did an acts of kindness “challenge” where every day we did a random act of kindness for someone.

We have a photo a day challenge I mostly put on myself, but now that my daughter has her own camera maybe I’ll have her join in. We also have a very ambitious 365 books challenge we’re working on. I’m pinning down a few more ideas for us to try this year. Here’s what I have in mind:

1 . Family workout
My husband is easily the most fit person in our family, and daily workouts are his thing. He often encourages us to join him. My kids love it. Me on the other hand–I sometimes have to be drug into the garage to play along. A family workout challenge would be healthy and fun for everyone to complete.

2. Try something new
It’s so easy to get caught in the day to day routines. From trying a new food, restaurant, sport or skill–Busting out of the ordinary and trying something new together has the potential to be a really fun challenge.

3. Daily Probiotic
I’ve been reading more about probiotics and another great challenge idea is to take a daily family probiotic like Align and Align Jr. which can help support digestive health.*

Align Jr. comes from the makers of Align, the #1 Doctor and Gastroenterologist recommended probiotic brand‡. Align Jr. has no artificial sweeteners and no artificial colors and with continued daily use, helps fortify kids’ digestive systems with a unique healthy bacteria 24/7* with their tasty chewable tablets for kids 6-12.

4. Daily letters
With homeschool my daughter does a lot of handwriting practice (we call it copywriting). She’s usually copying classic poetry but I think it could be fun to take a detour and write letters to friends and relatives. From thank-you notes, to birthday wishes and “thinking of you” cards and pen pals… This is a challenge that could last a while.

5. Daily Gratitude
We love doing this around Thanksgiving but it’s been something I’ve wanted to try to implement more often through the year. In the morning over breakfast, or at night before bed, just jotting down some of the things we’re grateful for. Recognizing your blessings and expressing gratitude tends to keep me feeling happier all the time.


We’re a family that loves to play and challenge ourselves. That’s why I partnered with Align on this post.
