Hi there, welcome to our link up party! This month's topic Not Just A Mom is Daily Must Haves. If you have a blog, please link up with us below. And please check out the other posts linked below.
Things that I have to have/do everyday:
This is a no brainer for me. I am one of those people who is literally addicted to caffeine. On those very rare occasions where I have not had a coffee in the morning (like I can count on one hand the number of times this has happened) I will be met with a pretty bad headache. I only started drinking coffee on a regular basis after my first son was born but now I love it so much, unapologetically so.
I got my Apple Watch for Christmas and I wear it all day long. I like to track my fitness, but even on days that I don't close my rings, I still like to see what I've done. It has come in handy for more than I thought it would.
Bruush and Floss
I, of course, brush my teeth everyday (twice) and I have gotten into the habit (finally!) of flossing before bed. I did not misspell brush above, it is instead the toothbrush I got for my birthday. Dave has one too and they are pretty sleek. Since I've started flossing on a regular basis, I get praise from my dentist on every visit. It only took to my late 30s for me to figure this out!
I take Vitamin B12 and D and Iron supplements each day. My iron has always been low so I need to take the pills and a couple of years ago my doctor recommended B12 as well. And since we live in a northern climate and I am a sunscreen person, I need the D as well.
Now, I guess I don't use them every single day but I do most days. I have the Immune roller which I use on my throat and chest at the slightly sign of a sniffle or sore throat. I also have the Peppermint Halo one if I have a headache. I know that most of their effectiveness is the placebo effect but I do call them my magic potions and I love them.
I have to have a hair elastic on my wrist everyday. Even when I do my hair for the day (I flat iron it), it eventually ends up in a ponytail because I'm hot, cooking, or working out. I like these flat ones with the little tie.
