Am I kidding myself that I should have more energy?
I have complained to Doctors, family and friends and my children about how tired I am at the moment. I don’t have much get up and go and its getting me down.
It’s funny the solidarity and reassurance you get however when talking to other mothers.
They sympathise, empathise and add in their own problems that this affliction (motherhood) is causing.
It’s a tricky time in life, simultaneously wonderful and exhausting as we run from activity to activity trying to feed both our children and our souls.
I try to rest as much as I can but time is limited. I drink energy boosting juices and eat healthy, cell-nourishing food. I get eight hours sleep and close my eyes when possible during the day. I try to meditate and get myself a little self-care time but still….tired.
I love my kids and enjoy the luxury of staying at home with them. I really want to make the most of this precious time…so…tips from the wise old internet on how busy Mums should get more energy:
Take a vitamin B complex: These vitamins reduce stress and increase energy.
Get dressed as if going to a job: Take a shower, get dressed in clothes to face the world in otherwise lounging in lounge pants will make you feel tired.
Exercise: Boosts energy and keeps you fit and healthy.
Laugh: Releases tension and releases endorphins and good feelings.
Eat Your Vegetables: As you try to put those greens in your kids mouth make sure you are eating too. It’s easy to forget ourselves and make some toast later….
Get Outside In The Sunshine: 30 – 60 minutes has been proven to increase energy.
Has anyone got more energy-producing advice?
