As I’m sure you’ve realized by now, I’m all about making healthy choices and living a balanced and healthy life. For me, that means balancing work, fitness, nutrition and my family. With as crazy as this past year has been for me, I’m looking forward to the summer and getting back to a healthier, better balanced life. Because the fast few months have included one daughter’s wedding, the other daughter’s high school graduation, and an emergency appendectomy for me, my life has been a little out of balance (to say the least :)).
So as the temperature rises and life calms down (at least temporarily), I am focusing on making healthy choices again. My workout habits have slacked off since I wasn’t allowed to work out after surgery and didn’t have time to do much as the wedding approached. Now I am back to running regularly and adding in other workouts like yoga and weight lifting. These workouts make me feel healthy and strong and ready to take on the world. I’ll also be hitting the pool regularly. While I’d like to say I’ll be swimming, the truth is I’ll be floating on my raft with a cold drink. We’ll just call that increasing my vitamin D consumption, which is also part of a healthy life.
Since I’ll be running outside and lounging in and around the pool, I needed to stock up on sunscreen so I stopped by my local Walgreens. While browsing the aisles, I saw a J&J Healthy Essentials display with several different products that will support me and my family in living a healthy lifestyle. After seeing a sign on the display for the Walgreens Balance Rewards program, I had to immediately download the Balance Rewards for healthy choices app. Walgreens launched Balance Rewards for healthy choices in an attempt to help its 80+ million loyalty cardholders modify behavioral risk factors associated with the most urgent public health issues. I love getting rewarded for something I am already doing and think it’s a great incentive to get people to live healthier lifestyles. If you haven’t heard about the Balance Rewards for healthy choices app, it rewards shoppers for continuing their healthy routines this summer. Not only will enjoy the rewards offered by getting regular exercise, you’ll also be save some money at Walgreens. Purchasing certain products such as those from the J&J Healthy Essentials line also gives you points that will save you even more money! And since these products help support your healthy activities, it’s definitely a win-win in my book!
Since I originally went to Walgreens to purchase suncreen, I was able to find Neutrogena sunscreen here as well as Lubriderm lotion to keep my skin hyrdated after being exposed to the summer sun. After a cleaning rampage a couple of weeks ago and emptying out most of my medicine cabinet because my first aid products were expired, I thought this was the perfect time to replenish those supplies. When I saw there was a special offer to get a free first aid kit container with the purchase of 3 first aid products, I loaded up my basket. My new first aid kit will be perfect to keep those necessary first aid products on hand and easy to find. You never know when you’ll have a minor emergency and need some Neosporin or a Band Aid. Running can be a dangerous sport sometimes, especially if you’re accident prone and hit the ground. Not to mention the blisters :). And with kids and a pool, you never know when there will be a scraped hand or knee from getting in and out so it’s always good to be prepared.
