My Tackle the Day Survival Kit

To say that life is busy, is an understatement. As you all know, or in case you're new to this blog: I am a mom, grandma, entrepreneur, mom of 6 pets, caretaker to my mother, and chauffeur to the whole family. My days start pretty early and can end as late as after midnight, especially when my days are so long that my work gets left behind. Hey, life wouldn't be life if I wasn't belting out a deadline on my computer in the middle of the night.

But like most women in this world, I can handle it. There might be days that I am a little worse for wear, those days that really knock one down, but for the most part I get up the next day ready to do it all over again.

One of my secrets for being able to tackle the day and survive intact is to carry everything I need with me. Today I am sharing what is in my current Tackle the Day Survival Kit (aka my bag).

As any smart mom or busy woman on-the-go, we all know the power of our purse, and the importance of making sure everything we'll need throughout the day is in it. I have another bag filled with my work essentials: laptop, mouse, chargers, etc. But in my handbag I carry everything else I will need:

  • My comfy new scarf because 5:00AM drop offs are so cold - this also makes a great pillow if I happen to pass out waiting for the kids to get out of school
  • My card holder with one credit card and pre-loaded coffee card

  • Snacks that won't make me get the jitters
  • My refillable water bottle - less waste and I can even add ice!

  • Aleve Back & Muscle Pain Tablets 

I put my whole self into each day and I'm not going to let back and muscle pain sideline me. On those days when my back is killing me, I turn to Aleve Back & Muscle Pain.

Aleve Back & Muscle Pain offers all day pain relief so I can overcome my tough pain and put my whole self into each day. With a one-pill dose, Aleve helps me power through the day and allows me to live life without that awful backache pain that creeps into my life more and more as I get older.

Life is busy and each day is another test in perseverance and patience but I have zero complaints. I know that I am actually very lucky to be able to work from home so that I am able to be here for my kids, my grandchildren, my mom and all of our pets. I am: the prescription runner, the "I forgot my homework" dropper-offer (is that a word?) and I could not be happier about it. After aches and pains are covered with Aleve Back & Muscle Pain and Aleve PM for those occasional nights that the pain interrupts my sleep.
