Ladies, Stay in Tune With Your Needs this Holiday Season + $25 Visa Gift Card GIveaway

This post has been sponsored by MONISTAT®. All thoughts and reviews are my own.

Hello, Sunshine! Can you believe that Halloween is less than two days away?! I can’t believe we’re already at the beginning of the super busy Holiday season. This is the time of year when high stress kicks in for moms. We’re so busy making sure the Holidays are magical for the entire family, that we often forget about our own needs and don’t listen to subtle clues that our bodies may not be quite as healthy as we may think. Mamas, we need to make sure that we paying attention to the hints that our bodies are giving us to stop and take time to meet our needs.


Get Your Beauty Rest

I’m always on the go and then out of nowhere, it just hits me like a ton of bricks. I’m exhausted and I can’t keep my eyes open for anything. If you’re flat out exhausted, try and get a nap in, because we all know that sleeping in is out of the question.


Feed Your Body Foods that are Nutritious and Delicious

I’ll be the first to admit that I love all of the yummy treats we have during the Holidays. I make sure that I limit all of the Holiday goodies so I can avoid a tummy ache and bloating after eating too many unhealthy foods. Eating nutritious food during the holidays will help give you the much-needed boost of energy you and your body needs.

Don’t Ignore that Yeast Infection

Yeast infections are one thing most women don’t want to talk about. It’s often an embarrassing subject, but something we shouldn’t be ashamed of. Common signs of a yeast infection include burning, itching, and abnormal discharge. When a yeast infection makes its ugly appearance, trust MONISTAT® for treating it.
