Hey there supplement lovers!
Are you tired of starting your supplement routine with all the excitement in the world, only to lose steam a few days in? Consistency is hard, but with structure, it's made easier!
We've put together the ultimate guide to help you stay focused and get the most out of your supplements. From simple reminders to finding the perfect routine for you, we've got 8 awesome tips that will make your supplement journey a breeze. Get ready to achieve your health and wellness goals like a pro!
1. Remind Yourself
Setting reminders is one of the easiest and most effective ways to stay consistent with your supplement routine. With our busy lives, it's easy to forget to take our supplements at the same time every day. There are a variety of ways to set reminders that can help you stay on track.
One simple way is to set a reminder on your phone. Most smartphones have a built-in reminder app that allows you to set notifications at specific times. This can be a helpful tool to remind you to take your supplements at the same time each day.
Another way to set reminders is to use a calendar app. You can create a daily event with a notification to remind you to take your supplements. Some apps even allow you to customize the notification sound or message, so you can make it more memorable and fun.
If you prefer a more traditional method, you can also use a physical calendar or planner to mark down your supplement routine. This can be helpful if you like to have a visual reminder of your schedule.

2. Out Of Site, Out Of Mind
Store your supplements in a visible location, such as on your kitchen counter, bedside table or office drawer, so that you are more likely to remember to take them. Find that shaker the night before too - we all know how digging through the tupperware cupboard to find the matching lid seems to chew up so much more time when you are in a rush.
3. Habit Pairing
By pairing taking your supplements with another daily task you naturally create a habit that ticks off two goals at once. This also makes it easier to remember your supplements and when you should be having them. Habit pairing is effective and will motivate consistency.
Pair up taking your supplements with a task you do everyday - brushing your teeth, your morning coffee, each meal or before you work out.
Prefer to eat your supplements? You can add them to smoothies, shakes, baking and treats. Check out the recipe tab on our website for tasty family-friendly creations. Here are some of our favs!
Let’s face it, drinking water can get boring, adding a scoop of your favourite supplement powder can not only give your water some much-needed flavour, but it can also provide an extra nutritional boost. Some of our favourites are
- Lemonade Amino Switch,
- Mango & Passion Vitality Switch
- Peach Keto Switch.
We all know how important it is to stay consistent with our supplement routine, even when we're on the go. But let's face it, lugging around a giant tub of supplements can be a real pain in the you-know-what. That's why we recommend decanting smaller tubs of product, so you can take them with you wherever you go!
7. Re-frame your thoughts
Consistency is key when it comes to getting the most out of your supplements. While it can be tempting to skip a day here and there, or to only take your supplements when you remember, doing so can actually decrease their effectiveness.
When you take your supplements regularly, you're giving your body the nutrients it needs to function at its best. You're supporting your immune system, promoting healthy digestion, and fueling your workouts. All of these things add up to a happier, healthier you.
Plus, taking your supplements can be a moment of mindfulness on an otherwise hectic day. It's a chance to slow down, take a deep breath, and focus on nourishing your body. And hey, if you're taking a tasty supplement like our Chocolate Protein Switch, it can even be a little moment of indulgence!
8. Stack your supplements
At Switch, we're all about finding the perfect combinations of supplements to support our health and fitness goals.
Stacking your supplements means taking two or more supplements together to get even more benefits. For example, you might pair our Amino Switch with our Vitality Switch for a boost of energy and focus before your workout. Or you might mix our rich chocolate Collagen Switch with the salted caramel Adrenal Switch powder for a delicious, nighttime treat.
But it's not just about the benefits - supplement stacking can also be a lot of fun! Many of us at Switch buy complimentary flavours so our favourite supplements can be taken together. It's like creating your own custom cocktail, but for your health! Here are some of the best stacks…
- Rich Choc Collagen with Coffee Switch
- Vitality & Collagen Strawberry Kiwi (or any of our fruity flavours make a great pair)
- Estro in your smoothie with Protein Switch
- Lemonade Amino & Lemonade Adrenal for recovery
- Glutamine, Creatine & WPI
- Keto, Thermal & Carnitine
Ultimately, the key is to find a system that works for you. Sticking to a supplement routine can be challenging, but it's essential for achieving optimal health and wellness. But here's the bottom line: if you want to see real results, you need to be consistent. Skipping days or forgetting to take your supplements can decrease their effectiveness and leave you feeling less than your best. So don't give up - with persistence and dedication, you can establish a supplement routine that becomes second nature and helps you achieve your health and wellness goals. Let's do this!
