I don’t know about you, but I think it’s the perfect time of year to get my cuddle on.

It has been a ROUGH re-entry into work and school society in this family. The kids went back to school on Wednesday, Cassidy went back to work on Thursday, but our house guests are staying until Friday. Who wants to leave house guests? I certainly don’t. As I had lunch with one of them today, we talked about how tough this time of year can be – because sometimes there’s not as much to look forward to after the holidays end. Well I say a big NO to that. I’m looking ahead and I like what I see. I see Florida, Valentine’s Day, SPRING, and all of these early 2019 months to work on goals, work and fun.

5 Tips to Get the Most out of Winter Afternoons:

1 – I’m starting with my favorite. It’s about warm connections in winter, but started the night before! Make sense? Well maybe it’s the writer in me, but I like to send out nice emails, e-cards, gifts, etc. the night before – especially when I’m up late – and then I actually look forward to the next day because that means my loved one is reading my words. And smiling!

2 – Do something active. Maybe you’re the type to get up for a run. Maybe you can do a full-blown exercise routine every afternoon. Or maybe it’s just a five minute warmup – or a dance party with your kids. Do something to MOVE!

3 – Have something to look forward to – and then count down to it. For us, it’s the winter holidays – like Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day. We also have an annual winter Florida trip and Des never lets us forget to count down to it!

4 – Lights, camera, action. Whether it’s a simple act of opening the curtains, stepping outside, or even investing in an illuminating alarm clock that gradually lights up a room like a summer morning, I always use light to my best advantage.

5 – Invest in ClimateRight by Cuddl Duds from Walmart. Why? It’s because they’ll keep you warm while making you look good, and nothing says happiness like comfort and confidence. Through EVERY part of your day, no matter where you are.

Personally, I love them all but I can’t live without my Plush Warmth layers from the Warm Baselayer Collection. They fit MY lifestyle, which includes a lot of work, dog-walking, driving, and walking the kids to and from the bus stop – which is always a vigorous walk. We also make lots of time for winter activities, like sledding and playing. Often, it’s just about snuggling with Astro by the fire. That’s like my number one favorite winter activity – just chilling out.

Sometimes it can be so challenging that the holiday season coincides with cold and flu season.

It’s enough to make you want to stay home and hide! And not only that, but it’s also travel season! Now we travel by car only during December but we go to my parents’ farm where we then meet up with all of my siblings and their kids. Nine kids under one roof, come Christmas morning! Not only that, but we host a lot during the holidays and winter in general. When house guests are coming, I have an easy secret weapon that is a must-have in keeping the family healthy and well.

And that’s Nice ‘n CLEAN Antibacterial Hand Wipes!

Trust me that you're going to need these Nice 'n CLEAN Antibacterial Hand Wipes all through cold/flu season. Here are 5 hacks #ad #nicencleanwipes #whywipes

Why wipes? Well, many reasons! They are better than gels! 80% of common infections are spread by hands, and wipes kills 99.99% of germs. They remove soil and bacteria from hands and surfaces – which is something that gels don’t do! AND, Nice ‘n CLEAN wipes are NATURAL. They’re made with TENCEL® – a 100% plant-based fiber (never plastic) and gentle formulas – making them a responsible choice for environmentally-conscious families. (like us) And they come in an awesome 5-pack!

I love them for my kids because they’re infused with aloe and Vitamin E to help keep hands moisturized and feeling soft. And they’re SAFE! Des gets really chafed skin from constant hand washing. It always makes me sad because I don’t like to see his hands all red and raw. I’m happy to throw a pack of Nice ‘n CLEAN wipes in his backpack and in his school lunch.

Ok, and here’s where it gets even better. Nice ‘n CLEAN Antibacterial Hand Wipes are proven to remove 99% peanut residue from hard surfaces. There’s a reason they’ve been in the wipe space for 61 years!

And not only are they seriously awesome for many reason, but they’re a pretty big parent hack. We keep them in my purse, in both cars, on the kitchen counter, and in the bathrooms. It’s actually my #1 hack for keeping the family well during this winter season of travel, house guests, and colds and flus spreading. Seriously, no reason to be afraid!

5 Nice ‘n CLEAN Hacks for the Holidays and Cold and Flu Season:

1 – Send them with your kids to school! Not only will they help kill 99.99% of germs on their little hands when you’re not around them, but the wipes are trusted by FARE (Food Allergy Research Association) which helps kids with peanut allergies.

2 – Use the wipes to do last minute bathroom cleaning! You can use them on counters, sinks and tubs, and anywhere that hands constantly touch. I love the peace of mind I get using something more effective than a sanitizing gel.

3 – Use wipes to wipe down the kitchen counters. In our house, we do a ton of holiday baking. I love knowing that I’m using something that is comparable to washing with soap and water to remove allergens, and is more effective than sanitizing gel for cleaning surface areas, hands, faces, and even clothes. That said – the kitchen counters is a big one!

4 – Use Nice ‘n CLEAN wipes to clean shoes in the mud room. This is a great hack for us because with two dogs and 10 chickens, we’re never 100% sure of the state of our shoes when we walk back into the house. Isn’t it nice not to wonder??

5 – Use the wipes for last minute cleaning you’d never think of otherwise, but wipes are the PERFECT size for it. I’m talking cleaning household plants, cleaning your own clothes, dusting leather furniture and cleaning light switches!

And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that Nice ‘n CLEAN Antibacterial Hand Wipes are the exclusive wet wipe sponsor and proud supporter of FARE. And that 1% of every purchase of these wipes will be donated to FARE. I think that’s powerful, and makes me happy that kids within my own kids’ classrooms can feel safer.
