So while that can lead to positives (such as staying better connected with friends and family or being able to work from home), that also means that we're all spending less time being up and active and enjoying the great outdoors.
Fortunately, Shout is on a mission to help Americans reprogram their daily routines, which means: seize the moment, get a little dirty and live life out loud! With the Shout family of products, you can treat stains wherever and whenever they happen, so your family can get the most out of life and still look their best.
To encourage families to take a fresh look at their daily routines, Shout has once again teamed up with Olympic athlete and mom Jennie Finch to encourage all of us to unplug and get messy! Here are a few of her great tips...
Jennie Finch's Tips to Reprogram Your Daily Routine and Live Life Out Loud
· Unplug from Electronics - We all have our favorite TV shows, iPad apps and video games that can easily occupy weeknights. Make a commitment to take at least 30 minutes each day to unplug the whole family from their favorite gadgets and spend some quality time together doing a fun and creative activity. Encourage the whole family to go outside and get dirty!
· Get Messy with Craft Projects - Arts and crafts are another fun way to change up your daily routine with interactive, hands-on fun. Create a craft box of construction paper, glue, paint and seasonal items. Dedicate each month to a new craft project.
For example – carve or decorate pumpkins with markers in October, make "turkey hands" or acorn decorations in November and special ornaments or holiday decorations in December. These homemade craft projects foster creativity, add decoration to the house and are a fun memento to keep for years to come. Have no fear – paint, glitter and markers are no match for Shout so your family can be creative no matter how messy they get.
· Use Your Imagination - If the weather does not permit outside play, get out a board game, or better yet, make up a brand new game with items around the house. You can write down the rules on a dry erase board as you go and the whole family gets to be inventive and resourceful with playtime!
· Look to your Community - Getting involved in local events is a great way to reprogram your daily routine and switch up the types of activities your family participates in on a regular basis. Art fairs, color runs, pie eating contests… the list goes on and on. Get active in your community's events and you'll meet new people and live life out loud!
Additionally, be sure to check out the Reprogramming America for Fun App on Facebook. Upon log-in, the app will integrate your name and profile photo into a short, personalized video all about seizing the moment – setting you free to start living out loud and having fun, without worrying about getting a little messy.
I had so much fun with this app and watched my video more than once because it was just so cute how it personalized it to include my name, photos and more throughout!
When it comes to reprogramming your life and playing without worrying about stains, Shout is definitely the name that is there to help clean up any messes. We have long been fans of their effective and versatile products and have recently been turning to Shout Trigger and Shout Wipes for just about any issues that arise.
The Triple-Acting Formula of Shout Trigger is filled with stain-fighting ingredients and enzymes to quickly penetrate, break up and remove tough stains – being able to grab this handy bottle and spray it on to dissolve all of the messes that magically end up on my children's clothes has been a lifesaver!
I love that these Shout Wipes are individually packaged and portable, as I've simply tossed a few in my purse and have been happy knowing that they go everywhere we do.
Instead of my usual big sigh when Little Sister B drips ketchup on her shirt when we're out to eat, I can just pull out one of these perfect little packages and use the stain-absorbing cloth to instantly lift it off of her clothes.
