So. I’ve been trying to do more for myself lately. Which, as any mom knows, isn’t nearly as easy as it looks. Between taking care of kids and cooking and cleaning and working and keeping a household running….by the end of the day, all I can really think about is crashing on the couch. The thought of having a friend over or….gasp….going out? It’s pretty much the last thing on my mind.
But. When I do muster up the energy to make it happen, well, it always feels worth it. Because getting out of the house and spending time with friends and feeling like a normal adult feels good! Even if it does require showering and getting dressed and foregoing my couch time for the night.
I’ve done it a few times recently, and I have to say I think I’m getting better at it. I’m better about how I structure my day, what I eat for the right kind of energy (like this Vanilla Green Tea Smoothie), and how I get ready for a different kind of night. Including using Rohto Dry-Aid eye drops after my shower. Because if there’s one thing that’s true about me, it’s that dry eyes are always an issue. And there’s nothing worse than getting all ready, and putting on makeup, and going out for a fun night…..only to have red, itchy, irritated eyes! (AmIright?)
I recently discovered Rohto Dry-Aid and found out it’s the #1 global eye care brand clinically shown to provide longer lasting dry eye relief versus the leading over-the-counter brand. Rohto Dry-Aid helps restore the natural tear film to provide soothing relief for up to 12 hours, and is designed to address the five key symptoms of dry eye: dryness, irritation, grittiness, burning and stinging. I’ve found it to be greatly effective in eliminating my dry eye symptoms and making my nights out SO much more fun!
Which got me thinking: I wonder if there are other things I could do to help reduce my symptoms. So I started researching, and do you know what I found? Drinking green tea can actually help reduce the symptoms of dry eyes, too! And, when you mix it right into this delicious Vanilla Green Tea smoothie, it’s actually enjoyable. I love the combination of vanilla and green tea, and this Vanilla Green Tea Smoothie is smooth, creamy, and just sweet enough to be perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. And when you combine it with Rohto Dry-Aid, I feel like dry eye issues are a thing of the past. Interested in trying Rohto Dry-Aid for yourself? It’s currently available at major retail locations where over-the-counter dry eye drops are sold, and also online at the Rohto website.
