NORTHRIDGE, Calif., May 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Nature Made, a leading national vitamin and supplement brand, announced it has partnered with Jeannine Morris, a health and wellness guru, plus a panel of well-known health and wellness experts, to engage in the conversation on what it means to be "Healthy Together." The initiative, informed by a national survey of 2,000 American adult men and women who shared their challenges in being healthy, found that 77% of people say their schedule gets in the way of their healthy habits. However, more than 60% of people are successful at keeping their routine when paired with a virtual or real-life wellness partner.
"The desire to be healthy is universal, but when life gets in the way, it is easy to get off-track. As a member of Nature Made's Healthy Together influencer collective, we want to empower everyone's health journey by offering meaningful solutions to common barriers," said Jeannine Morris, a certified wellness coach, writer and Founder of Joyfully-Me.com. "I, along with the rest of the team, want to share inspiration and ideas for keeping healthy while motivating our followers to employ small changes that add up to big gains in achieving their health and wellness goals."
The influencer panel was selected to represent a multitude of views and individual experiences that factor into a wellness conversation including:
- Jeannine Morris, "The Active One," is a yoga teacher and certified holistic health coach known for sharing authentic, encouraging advice and inspiration on national broadcast outlets.
- Doyin Richards, "The Social Chair" is a best-selling children's author, on-air contributor to NPR and HLN, and a charter member of the Today Show's Parenting Team.

A Snapshot of Survey Results:
Small changes can make a big impact on overall wellness, even when a packed schedule and demands at home contribute to an inability to meet daily health goals. Respondents shared they could reach a healthier version of themselves by:
- Getting just 30 more minutes of sleep (38%)
- Getting just 30 minutes of exercise (28%)
- Having a partner make a home cooked meal (22%)
Mornings set the tone for health each day, and data shows that most people (77%) start their days with quick fixes because they feel rushed, including:
- Eating something unhealthy (50%)
- 42% of women regularly skip putting on makeup
- 39% of men routinely skip shaving because they're in a hurry
- Skipping taking vitamins or supplements (32%)
- Leaving something important at home, like their phone (23%)
More than half of those surveyed confirmed that mornings and early afternoon are the best time to tackle goals on to-do lists because it has been shown that energy and focus drop off by as early as 2 p.m.
Taking the time to reboot a bad or unhealthy day can be done, but it does require the discipline to stop and recharge, which more than half of respondents don't get a chance to do.
- In fact, the majority of respondents claim they would need 45 minutes to themselves to recharge and one-third would be happy with 10 minutes.
- Millennials are also operating at more of a deficit than Boomers, with 62% not getting enough time to recharge, compared to only 41% of Baby Boomers.
- Americans responsible for others are operating at a deficit for time for themselves, with more than half (55%) not getting the time they need to themselves each day compared to only 34% of Americans who are flying solo.
