The holidays are quickly upon us and as hard as it seems to believe we will turn the pages on the month of December in just a few short days. Where has the time gone? Is it just me or does time seem to be flying this year?? 
And while the holidays and winter season bring a lot of fun times to gather with those we love the most, it can also be a prime season for many seasonal illnesses, aches, and pains. Often times visiting family and loved ones becomes difficult with pain due to pushing ourselves a bit more and using muscles that we are not used to using in decorating or fun holiday activities that we have planned. Each day is a treasure to be valued and experienced and holds so much activity and fun!
During this season I have found it helpful to create a winter toolkit that helps me through the holidays and well into the winter season. My main "ingredient" into the toolkit is MOTRIN® IB. I have shared before how I use this product and for me it is definitely the way that I keep the aches and pains of this season away so that I can thoroughly enjoy this time with my loved ones. 

Do y'all have a winter toolkit? For me I include in my toolkit simple and easy things that are also cozy. I include my favorite cozy socks, soft tissues for the cold season, my heating pad, tea bags to brew, some of my favorite girly movies, a couple of favorite books, essential oils, and of course as I just mentioned MOTRIN® IB.
One of the things that I love during this extremely busy season is that MOTRIN® IB is easy to find and purchase at Target Stores. While I am there doing additional Christmas shopping I can easily go and find MOTRIN® IB in the pharmacy section or at Target online.
The other day while I was doing some Christmas shopping I walked over to the Target pharmacy section and easily located the MOTRIN® IB in the aisle. It was near the front of the aisle, so it was easy to locate. If you are looking to create your own winter toolkit using MOTRIN® IB this is where you would find it!
In this particular Target the MOTRIN® IB was located on the bottom shelf. Obviously I am not the only one who uses this as there was just a few boxes left! 
For those of you who may be looking for help with aches and pains at nighttime, MOTRIN® PM might be something that you would want to add to your own winter toolkit. 
MOTRIN® PM is easily located a little bit further down the aisle from MOTRIN® IB and still very easy to find on the shelf. If you are a parent who is looking to create a winter toolkit you may want to consider purchasing one of the Children’s MOTRIN®. 
To locate this in the Target it was simply on the other side of the aisle from the other two Motrin products I mentioned above!

Don't have time to run to Target during this busy season? Why not purchase the above Motrin products on line? You can find all of the ones that I mentioned that are available from Target by clicking HERE
What about y'all? Do you use MOTRIN® IB? How have you found it helpful during the holiday and winter seasons?

I hope that this has been helpful and encouraging in how to not only survive this busy and active holiday season but also to thrive during it. As we quickly approach December I hope that each of you has a wonderful holiday season- treasuring each and every day!


  1. Thanks to early onset arthritis, I do have particular aches and pains. Especially in my hands and knees which is more so in the latter and affects my ability to travel and get in exercise. Aleve is my main go to for pain relief. Glad to see you pushing ahead Rebecca and wishing you all the best. Any company willing to sponsor your amazing site is one to give kudos to. Will look up on information for Motrin to see how it and Aleve compare. There is no winter in Jamaica but we still have the holidays and when a sickness drains you it's great to have helpful tips to deal with the busy Christmas season. Also my birthday is tomorrow. Yay!

      Happy (belated) birthday! I hope that you had a wonderful day and that this is the beginning of a WONDERFUL year! I am so sorry to hear of your diagnosis of early onset arthritis. That is so incredibly painful and my heart truly goes out to you. I am praying specifically for you and this today. Praying the Lord would bless and touch you and provide many many pain free moments ahead.

      I hope you have a wonderful day and a wonderful rest of the week!

      Blessings, Rebecca :)
      PS As a gal heading back into the heart of winter I may be longing after the "no winter" in Jamaica! :)
