Feel Good Energy for the Busy Mom
Moms, we are all so busy, right? Whether you’re working, running errands, cooking supper or just tidying up the house there is always something to do. I feel like I never have enough hours in the day to get everything done. I’m always rushing out the door or rushing home to meet a work deadline. I am always in need of some great feel good energy. I’m sure there’s lots of busy moms out there that feel the same way!
How do you get your feel good energy once you start to drag during the day? Since I work from home I’m able to jump up as needed to get a break or just relax for a few minutes. I say relax but I never do. I’m always at full force no matter the time of day. There is always something that needs to be done. I do love being able to go outside. It’s more work because I’m always doing something but it’s definitely a nice break from working indoors sitting at the computer.
Tip 1 – Start your day off right
Be sure you’re eating breakfast every morning. I’m guilty on this one. I always fix my son breakfast but often skip it myself. I’m working on this one! Also, try staying more active in the morning. I am the most productive in the morning. I get up early, get my chores done and get right to work. For those of you that enjoy hitting the snooze button and sleeping in… stop, please! I guarantee you will feel much better throughout the day.
Tip 2 – Get moving
If you work at a computer all day like me it can be hard to stay active and get moving. Luckily, I work from home and can get up moving any time of the day I want. I feed cattle and do chores every morning and late afternoon. I also try to get up moving mid-afternoon and before bed. It also helps me stay focused and much more productive. Other ideas are taking a walk of an evening or exercising. I always save the evening for family. I try to shut down the computer and focus on family time.
Tip 3 – Try a natural energy drink
While picking up my son his favorite apple juice at Walmart, I found the new V8 V-Fusion+Energy single serve cans in the juice aisle. They had so many different flavors: Pomegranate Blueberry, Peach Mango, Orange Pineapple, Black Cherry, Tomato, Diet Strawberry Lemonade and Diet Cranberry Raspberry. I decided to try the V8 V-Fusion+Energy Pomegranate Blueberry in a 6-pack. Intrigued? You can learn more about these at Walmart.com.
By late afternoon I usually start to drag a little. I really needed a boost to get me through the day. I knew that these new natural energy drinks, vFusionPlusEnergy.com, was the answer for me. The great thing about the V8 V-Fusion+Energy is that they are a refreshing energy drink powered by natural green tea. You can actually feel good about it!
I swore off other energy drinks so I am very happy to have found one that gives me natural energy, from green tea. There’s no artificial medicinal taste. They don’t leave me bouncing off the walls with my heart racing like other energy drinks with a terrible crash later. Plus, they are nutritious and offer a combined serving of fruits and vegetables without that veggie taste. They taste like fruit and are only 50 calories per 8 oz. serving so you won’t feel guilty! You’ll actually feel amazing!
Tip 4 – Afternoon snack
Grab some fruit or a healthy snack. This will keep you productive and motivated. Try to avoid rich, greasy foods for lunch. These will for sure drag you down by late afternoon. I like to snack on trail mix or my homemade healthy granola bars recipe.
Tip 5 – Get outdoors
Getting outdoors is something I’ve already covered this multiple times so you can tell just how much I love it. What’s better than getting out and breathing in the fresh air? It makes me much more focused. I love watching our momma hens with their little chicks. So relaxing!
V8 V-Fusion+Energy drinks are the perfect feel good energy alternative for this busy mom! I love to take my delicious V8 V-Fusion+Energy drink when I’m feeling drained, sit outdoors and relax for even a few moments. I love watching our animals on the farm and enjoying the beautiful days with my son. We always have a lot of fun together even if we are working. What helps you get some feel good energy?
