Some of the key reasons to consider supplements
There are many reasons why people now use supplements on a regular basis to help boost their health. One of the key benefits is that is offers a simple and very convenient means of boosting health. We all want to enjoy good health but achieving this with today’s fast pace of life can be difficult. Often, we end up eating lots of fast food, failing to get enough necessary nutrients, and failing to live a healthy lifestyle, all of which can take its toll. With the use of the right supplements, you can counteract some of these issues by boosting your immune system and aiding your health.
Another key benefit of using supplements to help improve your health is that there are so many different options available these days. Finding the right supplements for your needs is much easier now because you can get online and browse a huge variety of options designed to meet different needs and goals. You can also more effectively research the various supplements you are interested in when you go online. It will enable you to check the ingredients, compare prices, look at consumer reviews, and assess the benefits. You will then be able to determine with far greater ease whether these are the right supplements for your needs.
One other reason why people take supplements in order to boost their health is because they don’t have another option in order to get the nutrients they need. For example, people who are vegetarian or vegan may miss out on many valuable nutrients in their day to day diet but can make up for this by taking the right supplements. Those that cannot tolerate dairy products may miss out on nutrients such as calcium but can make up for this by taking supplements.
With so many different supplement options open to you these days, boosting your health has never been easier. You can also find plenty of supplements made from totally natural ingredients to provide greater peace of mind.
Key factors you need to consider when choosing supplements
There are a number of key factors that you need to take into considerations when you are choosing supplements to aid your health. This is something that will make it much easier for you to find the best ones for your needs. Some of the key considerations you need to look at include:
- Pricing: The cost of supplements can vary widely based on a number of factors. This includes the brand of the supplements, where you purchase from, the size or quantity of the order, shipping costs, and whether you purchase in bulk. The price is obviously an important factor to ensure you can afford the supplements. However, you should never base your decision on price alone when it comes to products such as this, as quality is vitally important
- Reviews: It is important to take time to look at reviews of any supplements you are considering buying for your health. The more reviews you can look at the better. This is something you can do with ease simply by going online and using trusted review sites to get unbiased reviews and opinions from others who have already tried the supplements. This then enables you to make a more informed choice and learn more about the safety and effectiveness of the supplements you are thinking of buying.
- Ingredients: You need to make sure that you purchase supplements that are not only effective but also safe. As such, you should make a point of checking the ingredients before you purchase. You may be looking for supplements that are all natural or you may have sensitivities to certain ingredients.
By making sure you check the list of ingredients before you buy, you can avoid any issues and boost safety measures for yourself. Another key point to bear in mind is that not all supplements are suitable for vegetarians. So, if you are veggie or vegan, make sure you check and see whether they are suitable before you purchase.
- Special deals: With products such as supplements, you can often get special deals if you purchase more than one bottle or pack. This is something that is well worth looking at if you want to save yourself time, hassle, and money. Often you will get web based exclusives where you can get two or three bottles at a knock down price. If you have already used the supplements before in the past and know they work for you, it is well worth doing this.
- Effectiveness: You need to ensure that the supplements you purchase are designed for your needs and that they are effective in terms of what they do. Some supplements are created only for one thing while others can help you in multiple ways. You need to take time to think about your goals and what you want to achieve from taking the supplements. You can then check the different options to see which ones are best suited to your needs and are likely to be the most effective for you.
- The supplier: In addition to looking at the supplements themselves, it is also worth looking at the website or supplier you are considering buying from. You should ensure you buy from a reputable supplier that provides a good level of service as well as high quality products. This will provide you with greater protection and peace of mind when it comes to buying supplements to aid your health.
Enjoy the benefits of taking the right supplements by doing your research
By taking all of these factors into consideration, you can look forward to the benefits that come with using the right supplements. You can also avoid paying over the odds and you can get a great deal on the supplements you wish to purchase. In addition, you can benefit from finding out what others thought about the product before you buy, which means you are less likely to end up with an ineffective or low quality product. By doing your research thoroughly, you are far more likely to find supplements that are ideal for your needs, your budget, and to help you achieve your goals.
Not too many years ago, my advice to political candidates would have been pretty simple: "Don't do or say anything stupid." But the last few elections have rendered that advice outdated.
When Barack Obama referred to his grandmother as a "typical white woman" during the 2008 campaign, for example, many people thought it would cost him the election -- and once upon a time, it probably would have. But his supporters were focused on the values and positions he professed, and they weren't going to let one unwise comment distract them. Candidate Obama didn't even get much pushback for saying, "We're five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." That statement should have given even his most ardent supporters pause, but it didn't. It was in line with everything Obama had previously said, and it was what his supporters wanted to hear.
2016: What rules?
Fast forward to 2016, and Donald Trump didn't just ignore traditional norms, he almost seemed to relish violating them. Who would have ever dreamed we'd elect a man who talked openly about grabbing women by the **** and who was constantly blasting out crazy-sounding Tweets? But Trump did get elected. Why? Some people believe it was because Americans finally felt like they had permission to show their bigotry. Others think Obama had pushed things so far to the left that right-wing voters were more interested in dragging public policy back toward the middle than in what Trump was Tweeting.
Another theory is that Trump's lewd, crude, and socially unacceptable behavior was deliberately designed to make Democrats feel comfortable campaigning on policies that were far further to the left than they ever would have attempted before. Why? Because they were sure America would never elect someone who acted like Trump. If that theory is right, and Democrats took the bait, Trump's "digital policies" served him well.
And although Trump's brash style drew the most handlines, he wasn't the only one who seemed to have forgotten the, "Don't do or say anything stupid," rule. Hillary Clinton also made news when she made a "basket of deplorables" comment at a private fundraiser, but it leaked out, and it dogged her for the rest of the election cycle.
And that's where we need to start our discussion. Now that all the old rules about candidate behavior have been blown away, do presidential candidates even need digital policies?
Yes, they do. More than ever, in my opinion. Let me tell you why.
Digital policies for 2020 and beyond
While the 2016 election tossed traditional rules about political campaigns to the trash heap, that doesn't mean you can do anything you want. Even if it's just for the sake of consistency, candidates need digital policies for their own campaigns, regardless of what anybody else is doing. Here are some important things to consider.
Align your digital policies with your campaign strategy
Aside from all the accompanying bells and whistles, why do you want to be president? What ideological beliefs are driving you? If you were to become president, what would you want your legacy to be? Once you've answered those questions honestly, you can develop your campaign strategy. Only then can you develop digital policies that are in alignment with the overall purpose -- the "Why?" -- of your campaign:
- If part of your campaign strategy, for example, is to position yourself as someone who's above the fray of the nastiness of modern politics, then one of your digital policies should be that your campaign will never post or share anything that attacks another candidate on a personal level. Attacks will be targeted only at the policy level.
- While it's not something I would recommend, if your campaign strategy is to depict the other side as "deplorables," then one of your digital policies should be to post and share every post, meme, image, etc. that supports your claim.
- If a central piece of your platform is that detaining would-be refugees at the border is inhumane, then your digital policies should state that you will never say, post, or share anything that contradicts that belief, even if Trump plans to relocate some of them to your own city. Complaining that such a move would put too big a strain on local resources -- even if true -- would be making an argument for the other side. Don't do it.
- Don't be too quick to share posts or Tweets from supporters. If it's a text post, read all of it to make sure there's not something in there that would reflect negatively on you. And examine images closely to make sure there's not a small detail that someone may notice.
- Decide what your campaign's voice and tone will be. When you send out emails asking for donations, will you address the recipient as "friend" and stress the urgency of donating so you can continue to fight for them? Or will you personalize each email and use a more low-key, collaborative approach?
Those are just a few examples. The takeaway is that your online behavior should always support your campaign strategy. While you could probably get away with posting or sharing something that seems mean or "unpresidential," posting something that contradicts who you say you are could be deadly to your campaign. Trust me on this -- if there are inconsistencies, Twitter will find them and broadcast them to the world. And you'll have to waste valuable time, resources, and public trust to explain those inconsistencies away.
Remember that the most common-sense digital policies still apply
The 2016 election didn't abolish all of the rules. Some still apply and should definitely be included in your digital policies:
- Claim every domain you can think of that a supporter might type into a search engine. Jeb Bush not claiming www.jebbush.com (the official campaign domain was www.jeb2016.com) was a rookie mistake, and he deserved to have his supporters redirected to Trump's site.
- Choose your campaign's Twitter handle wisely. It should be obvious, not clever or cutesy. In addition, consider creating accounts with possible variations of the Twitter handle you chose so that no one else can use them.
- Give the same care to selecting hashtags. When considering a hashtag, conduct a search to understand its current use -- it might not be what you think! When making up new hashtags, try to avoid anything that could be hijacked for a different purpose -- one that might end up embarrassing you.
- Make sure that anyone authorized to Tweet, post, etc., on your behalf has a copy of your digital policies and understands the reasons behind them. (People are more likely to follow a rule if they understand why it's important.)
- Decide what you'll do if you make an online faux pas that starts a firestorm. What's your emergency plan?
- Consider sending an email to supporters who sign up on your website, thanking them for their support and suggesting ways (based on digital policies) they can help your messaging efforts. If you let them know how they can best help you, most should be happy to comply. It's a small ask that could prevent you from having to publicly disavow an ardent supporter.
- Make sure you're compliant with all applicable regulations: campaign finance, accessibility, privacy, etc. Adopt a double opt-in policy, so that users who sign up for your newsletter or email list through your website have to confirm by clicking on a link in an email. (And make sure your email template provides an easy way for people to unsubscribe.)
- Few people thought 2016 would end the way it did. And there's no way to predict quite yet what forces will shape the 2020 election. Careful tracking of your messaging (likes, shares, comments, etc.) will tell you if you're on track or if public opinion has shifted yet again. If so, your messaging needs to shift with it. Ideally, one person should be responsible for monitoring reaction to the campaign's messaging and for raising a red flag if reactions aren't what was expected.
Thankfully, the world hasn't completely lost its marbles
Whatever the outcome of the election may be, candidates now face a situation where long-standing rules of behavior no longer apply. You now have to make your own rules -- your own digital policies. You can't make assumptions about what the voting public will or won't accept. You can't assume that "They'll never vote for someone who acts like that"; neither can you assume, "Oh, I can get away with that, too." So do it right from the beginning. Because in this election, I predict that sound digital policies combined with authenticity will be your best friend.
