Celebrate Without Worry

I’m a sponsored Pepto-Bismol Influencer, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

Long days, not enough sleep, too much caffeine, bad food choices… it started sometime around college when I stayed up late cramming for tests on weekdays and going out with friends on weekends, and kept enjoying foods and beverages late into the night. After the fun, came the pain in the form of indigestion and heartburn, and I realized I couldn’t do this every day unless I liked waking up at 4 am with an upset stomach.

Late night revelry took its toll on my tummy back then, and it still does today, especially after a night of great nosh and drinks… New Year’s Eve anyone?

Obviously, the best thing to do is to be a little more moderate late in the evening so I don’t upset my digestive system, but sometimes (often) that isn’t possible, especially during a night of celebration and fun- who wants to slow down? So when my tummy revolts in anger later that night or the next day, I grab for that familiar pink relief in my medicine cabinet, Pepto-Bismol.

I have a lot I want to do this year, so much to celebrate, and a great New Year’s Eve was the best way to start the year off right. Pepto-Bismol provides fast relief whether you take it as a liquid (like I did in college), a chewable tablet, or capsules and it is my standby on the shelf in the bathroom, waiting to take care of my upset stomach and heartburn. Heartburn was the thing that kept me up all night until I started taking Pepto-Bismol, and was finally able to sleep through the night without an overnight reminder that I ate or drank too late again.

Because this year, I resolve to do a LOT and don’t want to be slowed down!

2017 Resolutions

1. Take that weekend photography workshop in Maine with my best friend
2. Learn to make a killer soufflé´
3. Spend more time with my girlfriends- at least once a month, a late girls’ night out!
4. Perfect my shot in archery
5. Sleep more (one of these years, I’m going to keep this one)

I see a lot of fun ahead this year, with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, and I already know I’ll be staying up late enjoying myself that night. When your spirit is having a party, and your stomach stages a mutiny, pink relief is there, ready and waiting, to treat diarrhea, nausea, indigestion, heartburn, or upset stomach. I’m not worried.
