I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for CRYSTAL LIGHT. I received a gift card to purchase CRYSTAL LIGHT products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
A while back, Josh was diagnosed with a condition called vasovagal syncope (also known as neurocardiogenic syncope). While it sounds really scary, it is not life threatening and he is learning how to live with it without letting it affect his day to day life too much. After learning more about it, I’ve come to the conclusion that I most likely have it too as my symptoms over the years have pretty much matched his. Luckily for both of us, there are some pretty easy things we can do to minimize it’s main side effect, which is fainting. It is crucial to stay completely hydrated at all times as even the slightest dehydration can result in fainting and generally not feeling so well.
While I am not a huge fan of drinking a lot of water (I much prefer coffee!), I can certainly power through drinking it because I understand that it is necessary to stay well. Since Josh was only six when he was diagnosed, we had to find ways to make water “fun” for him to drink, which was not an easy task. People suggested adding something to water to make it more appealing to his six year old palette, but I didn’t want him drinking a bunch of sugar or artificial colors.
Luckily, we found CRYSTAL LIGHT Pure which has only natural flavors, is sweetened with stevia, and does not have any artificial preservatives. Plus, it comes in fun flavors like Strawberry Kiwi, Grape, Tropical, and Josh’s favorite – Lemonade! They come in single serving packets that make it easy to have with me when I’m out and about. I’ve gotten in the habit of adding them to my own water bottle and have found it helps me drink more water as well.
And just to make a good thing even better, I now earn reward points and cool swag from one of my favorite country artists for buying something I already know and love! Yep, that’s right – CRYSTAL LIGHT and Miranda Lambert are partnering to launch the Platinum Points Program. And it’s super easy to use…you just purchase your favorite CRYSTAL LIGHT products at Walmart, snap a pic of your receipt with your smartphone, and then choose your Miranda rewards. You can sign up for the program here. And because of course you will be anxious to rack up those points as fast as you can, you can use the promo code “mirandaic” to score an extra 30 points.
