I hate being busy. What I do like is being productive. In my mind, "busy" and "productive" aren't synonymous.
"Busy" is when you're so stressed out about getting things done that you actually don't get them done. What you end up with is a haphazard, half-finished job.
"Productive" is when you use every ounce of your being to focus on one task at a time. You're not multi-tasking. You're laser-focused. And when you finish a project, you have some time to relax, regroup and choose your next project wisely.
Unfortunately, I've been more "busy" than "productive" these days. Answering texts all day long while taking notes in class. Working on an assignment that's due for one class while sitting in another class. Dealing with simple but time-consuming day-to-day tasks like cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, dry cleaning. The list goes on and on . . .
Needless to say, I'm trying to automate more parts of my day so I can focus on the most important tasks (i.e. school, fitness and obligations for ROTC). Luckily, Bulu Box has allowed me to do just that - automate how I look for and try new food and fitness products.
So here's how it works: You order a subscription. Each month Bulu Box sends you a box filled with 4-6 samples to try, usually a mix of snacks, health products and supplements. Here's what I received in my first box:
The first thing that "jumped" out at me - cricket protein!
Up next: Fast running fuel from island boost, which has DEFINITELY come in handy since I started running 15-20 miles per week training for the Army Ten-Miler race.
Fiber formula (a.k.a. what to drink when you've been less-than-stellar in eating veggies one day).
Favorite item in the box: mediterra bar - sundried tomato and basil. Snack bars are usually sweetened with chocolate chips, honey, etc. It was a nice change of pace to eat a savory snack.
Now for the products. True story - I call my backpack "Mary Poppins' bag" because, with the addition of this brush and toothpaste, it's now prepared for a weekend trip at all times.
Overall, I liked the products in the box and will definitely buy at least one of the items again. If you'd like to try your own box, go to Bulu Box's website and enter the code SWEATPINK for 50% off a 3-, 6- or 12-month subscription!
Until next time,
