How Our Family Stays Healthy As We Travel the World

As moms, we are always making sure our kids are happy and healthy. “Eat your vegetables” “Don’t eat too much candy”, but as a mom that travels, it can be even more difficult. There will inevitably be some unhealthy meals, since I don’t always have a kitchen handy, and unfortunately, I just can’t control everything we eat. It is important to me that our family stay healthy while traveling, even almost more than when we are at home. If one kid gets sick while traveling, it can throw all our plans into chaos. I knew I had to ensure that we stay healthy.

Mattresses… they can seem like such an inconsequential item in your house right? That is until your head hits your pillow at night and all you desire is a good night’s sleep. We need a good fridge to keep food, an oven to cook that food and many more items in our homes to make our lives happy and healthy, but what about the important role that a good mattress plays in our lives? We depend on a good night’s sleep to function at our best the next day, but when it comes to buying a mattress we sometimes decide to take a shortcut; to let our budgets rule over what we know will be the best mattress for our needs. All we are doing is shortchanging ourselves in the long run.

I don’t know about you, but I love being pampered while on vacation. Vacations are supposed to make you feel better, right? And what better way is there to feel refreshed and recharged than getting pampered? If you are heading to Vegas or already live nearby then you don’t want to miss the Salon and Spa and The Red Rock Casino & Resort. I recently went for a massage, manicure and hair treatment, and it was fabulous!

I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for WaterWipes. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

 It’s hard not to feel judged as a mom in this electronic day in age, everywhere you turn you hear moms criticizing other moms parenting skills, articles contradicting each other on how to take care of your baby and your own self-doubt making you question if you are doing a good job. But there’s a secret underneath all that negativity a secret the rest of the world doesn’t share with you enough; you are a great mom. That’s right… you are a great mom and even if nobody else recognizes it, your baby does.

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Sol Alpaca and Mom It Forward Blogger Network, as always though all opinion are mine.

I love pieces of clothing that have a history or a story to tell. Something you can truly treasure. This can be hard to find nowadays with everything being mass produced and nothing is unique anymore. So when I came across Sol Alpaca I knew I had found something special—something noteworthy.

Sol Alpaca’s creations come from Peru a country with very rich and ancient textile traditions. Sol Alpaca keeps those traditions alive bringing all the warmth the Andean people have to give. The Andean people love what they do and hold a special passion with nature.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
