3 Ways to Recover Quickly from March Break #ChurchAndDwight #ad

March Break always feels like a whirlwind; or at least it used to!  My daughter is now in College so her break was in February … don’t worry, my tips still apply!  Whether we go somewhere sunny, or have a stay-cation doing activities with the family, everyone is always a little exhausted when the week is over (especially me)! Since we don’t always have time to recover before the next week starts, and we have to be back in action at school and work, I make sure I have a couple of revival tricks up my sleeve for us to feel our best.  As best as best can possibly be!

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Other than helping my kid get as much rest as possible, GRAVOL Kids™ Dye Free Quick Dissolve Chewables always came in handy when my kid was feeling woozy during or after an active week. They help prevent and treat nausea, vomiting and dizziness from motion sickness, so I used to keep an 18-count pack in my purse in case she got car sick, feelt nauseous on plane rides or ate too much when we went out for dinner. Sometimes half a chewable is all she needed to get back to enjoying the day, but if she really wasn’t feeling well, I gave her one tablet every six to eight hours, as needed.Dosing amounts can vary by age group, so always read the dosage instructions carefully to figure out what’s best for your little ones.  These chewables have a yummy orange flavour (that taste way better than what I had when I was a kid!) and dissolve so quickly that your kid likely won’t even ask for water. Gravol is essential; to this day, when we’re on the go and when we’re on the mend — we love them!

After a busy week, my muscles feel so achy! Like most moms, I don’t usually have a lot of time to relax, so I rely on RUB A535™ Anti-Inflammatory Cream with Arnica for quick relief. I put it right on the spot where my sore muscle is, or where I’m having joint pain, and it works so fast! I love anything that starts to work instantly so that I can get back to taking care of my family. It’s not greasy like some other products and I don’t have to worry about it staining my clothes. I like to keep one at home and one in my car in case I need it anytime when I’m on-the-go!Last but not least, now that my daughter is very much coming into adulthood, we both enjoy going together for a mom/daughter trip to get a pedicure.  It’s our way of taking time for us, connecting one-on-one, and totally relaxing!  It’s a great way to feel revived and ready to take on the world again.

So tell me, what do you use for fast recovery after a busy week of fun?

Honour St. Patrick’s Day #stpatricksday #paddysday

Let’s commemorate the patron saint of Ireland 🇮🇪 with the festive green colour.  It doesn’t have to be with green beer!

I’m not Irish, nor do I have any Irish blood in my veins, but that doesn’t mean I can’t take part in the fun.  Did you know that the shamrock is a piece of clover that is used as a metaphor for the Christian Trinity (the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit)?IMG_0502While we can dive right into the festive fun with all the regular leprechaun and, luck of the Irish type of fun, I prefer to keep it subtle and simple.

I usually try to incorporate more green foods into the day’s meals like:

  • avocado
  • green grapes
  • lettuce
  • asparagus
  • brussels sprouts
  • broccoli
  • kiwi
  • green apple
  • pears
  • zucchini

… to name just a few!

Have fun with it!  You can always set up a buffet-style dinner and have everyone sample a bit from all the different dishes.  So go overboard with it.  You can be a wee bit Irish.
