4 Instant Energy Tips

4 Instant energy tips

 

As a mom, I almost always feel zapped of energy on some level. Diapers, meals, snacks, potty, laundry, work, house, phone, snacks, meals….you know! I still have a mental check-list I run through on days when I’m really struggling to get (and stay) going. While it may be normal to feel run ragged at the end of a long day, struggling with energy all day is not normal. My 4 instant energy tips:

Get More Sleep

If I’ve gotten less than 7 hours, I’m zapped. Quick fix? Skip the T.V. and reading and go to bed earlier. Even 30-45 minutes makes a huge difference. For me personally, it never works to head to bed at the same time and just skip my morning workout by hitting snooze! Catch up on the front end.

Eat A Healthy Breakfast

Some days it’s 10 a.m. and I realize I’ve been up since 5:30, worked out and still not eaten. It’s difficult for me to recover on these days. Best I can do is to eat ASAP and wait it out until the next day. Skipping breakfast, or not eating a well balanced breakfast will zap your energy every time!

Workout

People don’t workout because they are tired. They are tired because they don’t workout. It’s a vicious cycle. Yes, the first couple of days are going to suck! But sooner than later, a short workout will help you feel more energized every day. Even 20 to 25 minutes!

Drink More Water

According to a study in The Journal of Nutrition, women who experience even mild dehydration saw significant drops in energy levels. Carry a water bottle with you at all times. You’ll sip unconsciously on it all day! If you’ve been dehydrated, drink up and your fog will lift.
