- Moving Day: Forget Calgon- BENGAY Take Me Away!
Ahhhh…nothing screams Moving Day like the crazed laughter of three kiddos using a UHaul truck as their own personal playground. Well, I guess shouldn’t say nothing? Chronic backache is a pretty good moving day reminder too!
Just like everybody else, I’ve got chronic backache and pains that pop up when I do crazy things like lift 50 boxes in one day. I’m sure it has EVERYTHING to do with my old sports injuries and NOTHING to do with me being a year older. Right?
One of the BEST solutions I’ve found for keeping me “ache free” has been yoga. It’s an amazing stress reliever and has done wonders to bring back the flexibility I took for granted when I was younger. I don’t want to wake up one day at 50 years old horrified that I can’t even touch my toes. My goal is to continue a lifelong practice of yoga and still be tree posing at 80.

But like I said, 50 BOXES. Not even yoga could save me that day!
Luckily, the awesome folks at Bengay just launched an NEW cold therapy formula and had sent over a sample for me to test out. After a few moments digging through the moving chaos, I managed to find my box. I’m so glad I did! For those of you who have visited a chiropractor or physical therapist before, I can tell you it’s just like that cold, tingly analgesic they put on after your treatment. No burning, weird sensation, or skin irritation. Just crisp, cool fast-acting relief that penetrates deep to keep your aches under control. Bengay has outdone itself with their PRO-COOL technology. They also worked wonders perfecting the smell. No more annoying “Bengay” odor, the new line uses a vanishing scent that’s undetectable. This came in handy as I’m meeting all the new neighbors. It’s bad enough to be sweating like a pig, the LAST thing I needed was to stink like a medicine shop too!
My moving day survival tips? UHaul, yoga, and Bengay…who knew?
