Q and A With Dr. Sharon

Products on the Go is all about happiness

Ever wondered what inspired the groundbreaking lifestyle brand, Products on the Go®? We sat down with founder and CEO Dr. Sharon Fried Buchalter to learn about what inspires her to help people.

 

Q: How do the daily pressures of modern life cause us to be stressed?

A: I’ve worked for many years as a psychologist and marriage and family therapist and I see stress as the biggest complaint of most patients. We’re out the door, at the office, uploading photos, reading articles and eating dinner out all while accomplishing more in a single day than any society before us, which is great. It also means we are really busy, all the time. When we discover we can’t fit in everything that’s important, we become stressed.

Q: How do Products on the Go cut down on stress?

A: The sets are designed with the consumer in mind; the average person. I wanted to create a solution to the stress, so I did it through products that make things easier for people who are busy. My products simply allow people to spend more time doing what they want to do and less time shopping.

Q: Can you describe some of these Products?

A: We have five prepackaged lines and in there are products that you would normally buy for a specific event or purpose, say for example, changing a diaper. Everything is in there, all-natural, eco-friendly and recyclable, there for you. All you have to do it use it, put it back in the bag, and throw it out.

Q: So what’s in the diaper changing set?

A:Well it’s called Poop Happens, because it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. We have a bamboo diaper (it’s so soft!), bamboo wipes, diaper rash cream, the diaper changing pad which is disposable, and hand sanitizer for after.

Q: Wow! What are some other Products on the Go?

A: In addition to prepackaged sets, we also wanted to look at the lifestyles of teens and tweens so we developed a sunscreen with shimmer and sparkle. The Sun Bomb Action and Sun Potion Princess sunscreens are a favorite with kids and parents because it’s fun to wear and looks great in addition to providing great protection and all-natural ingredients.

Q: Anything else we should know about Products on the Go?

A: Really just that they’re made with you in mind. Our collections allow consumers to reduce the hassle, shopping time, and pressure related to purchasing individual items by offering everything you need in one easy to grab pack. We know you work hard, that is why we at Products on the Go strive to simplify your life at home, on vacation, or anywhere you go.

Five Tips to De-stress Your Life on the Go

Products on the Go less stress more happiness

It’s official: summertime is gone and the living is no longer so easy. With school, work, after-school activities and the holidays looming just around the corner, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with all the things life tends to throw at us this time of year. In order to conquer the daily grind and be the hero of the holidays, consider these 5 tips to de-stress your life.

  1. Identify the source of your stress. It’s easy to identify major life events that cause stress; a big move, divorce, change or loss of jobs are all things that typically cause stress. It’s the daily stressors that can be a bit trickier to pinpoint. That’s why being honest and realistic with yourself about your thoughts and feelings is a good way to identify the real reasons we freak out. The American Psychological Association recommends keeping a to-do list, journaling or even just verbalizing your feelings in the moment can go a long way in the fight against stress. It can also be a step toward getting the help you need, whether it’s your spouse helping with the grocery shopping or empowering your kids to decide for themselves what to wear the night before, instead of the morning of.
  1. Unplug and power down. A recent University of Kansas study revealed that excessive smartphone use can lead to stress and anxiety. Our brains are incredible structures. They process so much information, store a lifetime’s worth of memories and through ‘neuroplasticity’ actually change their structure throughout our lives so we can continue to learn and remember things into our advanced years. But brains also need downtime to process the ever-increasing amount of sensory information with which we bombard them. If we are constantly engaging at school and work, then hopping on Facebook and continuing to engage with whatever people are sharing and posting, the brain isn’t getting that break it needs. That also means we’re not involved in activities we find relaxing and fun, less time engaging with the kids and connecting with our loved ones. Power down the tablet, put the laptop to sleep, and silence your smartphone. You’ll be glad you did.
  1. Get Physical. Physical affection releases oxytocin, a hormone that reduces pain and causes a calming sensation. Whether it’s holding hands with your little one, having a sexy night in with that special someone, or even cuddling up with the dog, giving and receiving affection is a good way to break up stress and anxiety for everyone in the family.
  1. Get Out. There are a whole bunch of ways getting outside reduces stress. For starters, becoming one with Mother Nature promotes exercise, increases brain function and is an excellent way to get some Vitamin D. The smell of many flowers found outside, including jasmine, lilacs and roses, have been proven to decrease stress and increase relaxation. The scent of fresh pine has even been shown to lower depression and anxiety. Not to mention that much of the United States is transitioning into fall colors right about now, so scoop up the kids, peel your husband away from football and take a day to immerse yourself in nature!
  1. Just Say No. It can seem as though our plates are always piled high with obligations and commitments which is why cutting stress can be as easy as simply saying no, according to the Mayo Clinic. It is important to remember that other people’s priorities are not your priorities; only you can determine what your priorities are. Politely declining to make yourself available to others on occasion, can free up your schedule to do the things that are really important.

These are just a few way ways you can cut down on the stress of the season and keep everyone in the family sane all the way through to the New Year.
