I don’t know about you, but I know that I’m a creature of extra lately.

Sometimes it’s me wanting to have extra time in the day to get all of the things done. Other times it’s a matter of wanting extra nachos because nachos are delicious and deserving of my extra love and attention. And then, of course, the extra room I’d like in my maxi dress for after the extra nachos. I digress.

There’s this weird feeling I get about how overwhelmed I get with the unspoken need to have more. More information, more complexity, more everything. As I’ve ventured into placing a mindfulness on turning down the noise of needing extra XYZ, it’s also shown me that the only extra I need to be investing in is my attention on the things that deserve it.

The parts of my every day where I really try to omit the excess are in the practice of presence, activities that allow me to connect with my boys, the meals that I prepare, and what I choose to put in my body in general.

Especially during my time of the month…

And when it comes to my tampons, I want them to work with the things that are most important – comfort and protection. I really am no fan of all of the extra bells and whistles they sometimes come with. That’s also why I’m a big fan of Playtex® Simply Gentle Glide Tampons.

The comfort shape applicator is free of colors, dyes, and BPA. I am also really impressed that the purified fibers are washed up to five times and weaved together to form an absorbent core. That attention to the simplicity of the product paired with the 360° Protection allows the tampon to shape to your body for a protective barrier against leaks. Who can argue with something like that?! Not to mention that every ingredient used in Playtex® Simply Gentle Glide is rigorously evaluated to provide reliable protection that you can trust to be gentle and safe for your body.**
