Wrexham, North Wales Lifestyle | July 3, 2017 WHY OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS ARE SO IMPORTANT FOR US 3 months have passed since I published the post in which I told you (here) what I do to feel healthy. Currently I feel great despite the fact that we had so much on our plates these past weeks. We moved into a cute cottage in North Wales which wasn’t our initial plan to be honest. We actually wanted to move into a furnished apartment in Chester but there wasn’t anything we particularly liked and we were running out of time. So one day while browsing the web, I stumbled upon this cottage on the English/Welsh boarder and it seemed like the perfect solution. Only 2 days after moving and tons of unpacked boxes, we drove to Germany by car. It was my father’s big birthday and nothing in the world would have stopped us from going. We wanted to be with our family and celebrate together. And you know what? All of it was manageable. A bit of staying calm and taking care of one’s health does the trick. 3 months ago I started to cod liver capsules from Seven Seas I never took fish oil capsules before but Seven Seas kindly sent me their Simply Timeless Cod Liver Oil and I started taking them right away. The capsules contain very important Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA) and Vitamin D. It’s been 3 months now and all I can say is that I feel great! Funnily enough, I had no idea that my parents take fish oil capsules themselves until my father told me during our visit. omega-3 fatty acids As we get older nutritional supplements are beneficial for our health Nutritional supplements are extremely important for us as we get older. The Seven Seas #TRUEAGE campaign believes in living the age that you feel and not necessarily the age that you are. I support this from the bottom of my heart, particularly with the beneficial effects of Cod Liver Oil. Strong bones and muscles (due to the Vitamin D), healthy eyes and a well functioning circulation and metabolism is something we all want.omega-3 fatty acids I’m in my forties and Joerg in his very early fifties but numbers aren’t really that important to us. We think it’s absolutely crucial that you love what you do and that you work on your dreams. Always and no matter your age. Be open to change if you aren’t happy with something or an opportunity arises. The key to us is staying curious. Curiosity and and a lifelong dream has led us to leave Germany at an older age and start all over again in Britain. We always see how people in their twenties got stuck and are no longer willing to take any risks. We never wanted to be like that. The current cottage is only rented, it’s not perfect (but in the meantime we have some gorgeous blooms around here) and we’re still looking for our own place. We’re working on another dream if you will. Still, at the current cottage we sometimes feel like a couple in a trashy novel and live a bit of a cliché. It’s amazing. Again, this is why I love the Seven Seas #TRUEAGE campaign so much. Do what you love regardless of your age but try to take good care of your health at the same time. Personally I don’t want things to be complicated and really like the fact that the Simply Timeless Cod Liver Oil One-A-Day pack will last 3 months. You only need to take one capsule a day. Simple. It is good for your heart, your vision and your brain. I think nobody minds simple and if it helps us staying healthy for as long as possible? Even better. Joerg and I already made plans for Christmas: We want to decorate the fireplace with Christmas stockings, omg I’ve been wanting to do that for ages (though I dream of a white mantle and I’ll keep looking for it). It surely never ever gets boring around here. This post is in collaboration with Seven Seas but all opinions are my own. Follow Seven Seas on Facebook and Twitter or find out more here.
