There are certain areas of a woman’s life that we like to sweep under the rug and one of those areas is the area of self-care and wellness. When going through major life changes it is important that we (women) remember to focus on wellness and incorporating self-care into our routines.
Focusing On Wellness: Self-Care During Life Changes
I am not sure why women…especially moms…seem to forget how to make time for themselves. The hustle and bustle of being a mom takes over and suddenly we are broken down. Simple or even not so simple life changes seem to add to this forgetfulness too. Again, instead of helping ourselves by finding a way to keep our mind and body healthy and well we focus on making sure everyone else is OKAY! That has to stop and one way that I know we can all find wellness is by some simple acts of self-care.
Recently, I shared with you all that I went through a pretty sudden and painful divorce. To say I hit my lowest of low in terms of wellness is an understatement. Sure, I was sharing that I was going to Pilates, enjoying my family and losing weight but the fact was – I was not well. A lot of my own self-care and self-love was gone. I was running through the day, checking items off of my to do list and starting all over in the morning. While not every woman is going through such a major life change I do know that with every season of life, we often need a little reminder of taking the time to bring Self-Care into our routine!
Finding Relief With Pamprin Max Pain + Energy
I am 37 years old, and you would think that after having two kids I wouldn’t have to worry about that dreaded time of the month but that is not the case. When that time hits I find that my focus on self-care and wellness goes out the window…just like my energy. My motivation of taking care of myself during that time of the month disappears and to be honest, the cramps and bloating doesn’t make anything easy during that week. Exhausting for someone like me who is always so completely invested in making sure my kids and I have a great time no matter the day or our plans. Talk about a time to feel like I am failing as a mom, when I just want to lay down with a heating pad.
But, thankfully Pamprin gets me, the makers of Pamprin understand the drain that a period can have on a woman and how that can completely change a special plan for the day. I have been taking Pamprin for years and it works. As someone that struggles with terrible cramps, bloating and exhaustion during my period I need Pamprin to give me some period relief and help me feel my best!
What You Need To Know About Pamprin Max Pain + Energy
Pamprin Max Pain + Energy was made specifically for the most painful period days. Formulated to relieve the discomfort of cramps, headaches & backaches but also provide the energy we all need, for maximum strength results. As women, we usually try to just get through any pain and to be honest we usually have a pretty high pain tolerance but we do not deserve to just grin and bear it. Relief is possible…and so energy!
Pamprin Max Pain + Energy includes caffeine to help with period-inducing fatigue plus it acts as a diuretic to relieve bloating and water weight gain many of us experience as a result of period symptoms. Pamprin Max Pain + Energy contains both aspirin and acetaminophen for pain relief and caffeine for water weight gain, fatigue & bloating, it is clear that Pamprin Max offers complete coverage for PMS symptoms we all hate!
As someone that struggles with so many of these PMS symptoms, I am happy that I have found period relief in Pamprin Max Pain + Energy. I feel that my overall wellness – mental and physical – is boosted now that I have the extra energy and pain relief during that time of the month. This is not a weakness ladies, we are strong and goodness knows it is okay to ask for help – Pamprin is ready for the challenge.
Trojan™ Ultra-Touch™ Personal Massager
I will be honest, it is a topic that most people blush (me) and do not want to discuss…sex. No matter how you incorporate sex into your life, we know that healthy sex is a piece of your overall wellness as a woman. The relationship status you claim has nothing to do with your self-care and self-love. It is important to remember that Self-love is an important part of self-care and wellness.
Trojan Brand Condoms, a brand known for helping people explore with confidence, is asking everyone to take a moment and Sexplore At Home With Confidence to show that staying home can still be sexy. It is no surprise that since the start of social distancing 29% of women are enjoying some self-love time more.
The Trojan™ Ultra Touch™ Fingertip Massager brings pleasure into your own hands, so you can explore with confidence and improve your sexual wellness. Hello Self-Care…hello whole body wellness! This unique vibrator attaches to your finger, giving you enhanced stimulation. The TROJAN™ Ultra Touch™ Intense Personal Massager puts big thrills at your fingertips. Because it’s worn directly on your finger, it has all the flexibility and rhythm of your finger — enhanced, of course, by a vibrator.
Adding BOTA™ To Your Routine
Finding a skin care product that you love can be a challenge but it is such an important step to a whole body wellness journey. No matter how confident you are, when your skin looks and feels healthy you will radiate wellness and health. Finding and creating a great skincare routine is a perfect self-care activity. I was so excited to try BOTA™ skincare products recently and I truly believe I have found a skin care regimen I can stick to and thoroughly enjoy.
BOTA™ is a company on a mission to provide gentle, yet effective skincare that’s free of harsh chemicals. They identified the best elements nature has to offer our skin and created a plant-based skincare line enhanced with CBD. All BOTA™ products are infused with the highest quality hemp oil derived from non-GMO hemp grown in the U.S. through natural farming practices. Keeping in mind that all products contain less than 0.3% THC.
What You Need To Know About BOTA™
I was provided with two of the BOTA™ products; the Age-Defying Hand Lotion and the Warming Muscle Melt Creme. From the moment I opened each of these products I knew I would enjoy them. The texture of the creme and lotion are great, not greasy and the scent is very pleasant and not overwhelming.
BOTA™ Age-Defying Hand Lotion (150MG CBD / 2oz. $15.00):
BOTA™ Combined three of their favorite things to formulate the BOTA™ Age-Defying Hand Lotion; plant-based ingredients, a non-greasy formula that absorbs quickly, and hemp extract. This hand lotion contains natural emollients and essential fatty acids that soothe and hydrates dry skin. I have enjoyed using this hand lotion for a few days now, I especially love the addition of an Apricot Kernel Oil and hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD).
BOTA™ Warming Muscle Melt Creme (300MG CBD / 2oz. $28.00):
I have to be honest, I was most excited for this. I recently got back into my Pilates routine and I am SORE!! Who would have thought that Warming Cinnamon Oil + hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) would be my new recovery after a few great Pilates classes? Did you know that our ancestors used cinnamon oil as a natural warming mechanism for centuries? The next time you have a draining day or complete a tough workout, melt away with the BOTA™ Warming Muscle Melt Crème. Combining warming cinnamon oil, shea butter, and hemp extract you will unwind and recover quickly!
