All-day energy is the seemingly unattainable goal of mothers all across the country; a holy grail, if you will. Even if we pump ourselves full of coffee in the morning, it seems like that mid-afternoon crash is just inevitable! If you are sick and tired of the incessant fatigue that comes with having a child (or two!), then why not give the following tips a try?
- Laugh out loud. Laughing encourages our brains to release endorphins. That flood of feel-good chemicals can help you feel alive and refreshed much longer than that sugary frappuccino! Laughing is also known to boost your immune system and decrease your risk of heart disease and depression, so listen to your favorite comedian while you are waiting in the carpool lane! Still don’t believe us?
- Get moving. Step out of your mid-day slump by getting your body in motion! Hitting the gym, taking the kids for an afternoon at the park, and running those errands that have been adding up all week are just a couple ways you can get your blood pumping. Even if you only have time for a quick 7-minute total body cardio warm up, that’s plenty of time to get those endorphins flowing!
