More Productive Weekends #MakeItHappen with Motrin

I have received information, product and materials from McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., the makers of MOTRIN®. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post.

Being unstoppable means keeping your cool even when things go wrong. I am happy to partner with MOTRIN® Brand and The Motherhood on this post about what being unstoppable means to me.

Being unstoppable means that no matter what life throws at you that you never let it get you down. Start the day, the kids are late to school which then seems to be the precursor to everything else being late throughout the day. Even on my worst of days I try to remember that being prepared is half the battle, having fun even when things go wrong can make everything right again.

I also like to use weekends to be prepared and tackle whatever it is that I need to do for the week. It helps me better manage my week and have expectations for goals I would like to accomplish. This last weekend I wanted to make sure our girls had an organized space for getting ready in the morning. Hoping to make all of our mornings work by organizing what each of our children needs to get ready in their own space. This causes less confusion and helps our weekday mornings stay unstoppable.

Staying unstoppable means I’m prepared for the busy week ahead. Having healthy snacks on hand helps us get through our days effortlessly. It also helps me stay prepared for packing school lunches which is a big help to our already busy mornings.

Another way to stay unstoppable is to spend the weekends with my family doing the things we enjoy doing like gardening and planting flowerbeds. Getting things done around the house not only makes our lives more organized but it helps us stay connected. Not to mention there’s nothing quite like seeing the garden you planted with your children flourish. rose portland rose garden The MOTRIN® Brand invites all of the unstoppable women out there to join in and celebrate Monday as a day of triumph by sharing how they “Make It Happen” over the weekend! They can share with us how they “Make It Happen” on the weekends when it comes to home, fitness, fashion and family by visiting the MOTRIN® Facebook page on Mondays for a chance to win a one-on-one session with actress Jennie Garth.

    I’d love to do some outside DIY’ing. My hands do get sore though. I’d need some Motrin to do gardening.

    I could not survive some days without Motrin. It is quick and works great.

    Being prepared is a great way to remain unstoppable! When I feel like taking a break but know I just can’t, I remind myself the only way around it is through it and get the job done.
