Here a mother of two gives 6 ways to energize yourself daily. Especially for mothers who are supposed to be everywhere.
So, being a mommy to a 6-year-old and almost an 8-month-old has its own challenges. The never-ending sleepless nights with the little one are still going on and the ever demanding activities and outings of my first born are so taxing at times. Even though it drains me out completely but believe me, when I say that I don’t want it any other way. The kids need all the stimulation they can get to learn and we as adults have to find our ways to keep up with them and keep that energy beaming at all times.
I know it sounds cliched but when I say ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’, I really mean it! Of course, all you good people already know that and I am not telling you anything new but having your breakfast at the same time every morning gives you a jump start on those energy levels to keep you going for the day. As they say, a right start is what really matters and that’s what a healthy breakfast gives to your body. Don’t be a breakfast skipper and try some carbohydrates and fiber rich breakfast options for more alertness, I generally do that by adding some roughage rich fruits like an apple or a pear and maybe by a slice of brown bread to my breakfast.
All the wise people hydrate themselves quite a bit every morning, which is the best thing that you can do as your body loses a lot of water while you sleep, but that is not enough. If you want to keep fatigue at bay you need to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. For people like me who can’t drink too much water (just can’t keep having that tasteless thing throughout day— I need flavour!), try adding lemon or other fruits to your water. Water by the way of green/herbal tea can also be very beneficial for health.
A lot of people cannot start their day without a cuppa full of caffeine in the morning. But the trick I’ve learnt through this process is, save that cuppa for late in the day when you are actually feeling tired and sleepy. Caffeine helps by blocking the sleep generating chemical, so save that 1/2 or 1 cup of caffeine or it’s equivalent when you actually need to be energised. A coffee date with my lil girl or a friend generally does that for me.
