I’m proud to partner with CVS Pharmacy on this post for the CVS Health brand line. All opinions expressed are my own, and all product claims or program details shared should be verified at CVS.com or with the appropriate manufacturers.

One of our favorite things about summer is that it's a great time to relax, reset and recharge. Yes, even if you're busy, juggling many items on a full plate of responsibilities; you deserve to slow down and #FindYourHealthy. I've partnered with CVS to share some of their high-quality and innovative products that you need to try and an opportunity to win a care package for you and a friend! 

Here are 3 tips & CVS Health product that will help you add a little 'me time' to your routine. 

1. Sleep

Did you know lack of sleep can result in an inability to focus and respond quickly?Whether you have a busy summer or plans to unwind sleep can still be an issue. I'm loving CVS Health Melatonin Sleep Chews to get the rest I need. 

2. Beautiful You

Try to soak in some 'me time' in a bath of CVS Health soothing mineral salts. I like to lower the lights, use candles and listen to calming music while soaking. Another way to create a spa-like feeling is by adding some DIY beauty treatments using coconut oil  or dissolving whitening strips from CVS Health. Post bath, use stress relief moisturizing lotion to keep skin soft and hydrated. 

3. Be Prepared

How do you relax with guests? Whether you’re hosting overnight guests from out-of-town or a backyard summer barbecue, a care package of items for your guests is a great way to welcome them into your home and also allow free up time for you! First Aid and health essentials from CVS are great to prepare for the unexpected. You never know when someone may trip and fall or come down with a headache, really needing some of these products! Some CVS Health suggestions include: Dental floss, pain relief, PMS relief, bandages & first aid kit, Manuka honey burn pads; anti-itch spray.

Want to upgrade your first aid kit? Add this: CVS Health Manuka Honey Burn Pad. Ideal for minor abrasions, cuts and lacerations. 

Manuka (Leptospermum) honey is a medical grade honey that's harvested from the Manuka plant in New Zealand. Researchers have found this species has unique components that make it ideal for healing wounds and burns. This innovative product is infused with medical-grade honey, which assists in maintaining a moist environment for optimal wound healing.
