The lives of women often require a Herculean effort. Juggling work and family obligations can create stress and can leave little time for self-care. Many women find themselves perpetually exhausted and dragging around with little pep in their strides. Our children seem to have boundless energy….wouldn’t it be nice to feel that way again…or even come close??
There are ways we can energize minds and our bodies. It seems so basic, but the ways in which we eat and drink are of paramount importance in maintaining a balanced energy throughout the day.
Coffee, Soda and Alcohol – these are all substances that affect our energy in some way – either stimulating or sedating (or both!). To get off of the roller coaster, instead drink water (try infusing with essential oils) and herbal teas, which contribute to your wellbeing and create balance in your body, mind and spirit.
Sugar – another roller coaster. A quick burst of energy and then a crash, leading to a vicious up and down cycle. There are so many healthy treats that you can be found in health food stores, and sometimes even in your local grocer’s, that can satisfy your sweet tooth without causing damage. Read the labels!
Nicotine – you guessed it. Another roller coaster!
Try these instead...
1. Exercise! At least three times per week at the gym or at home. Finding a workout buddy can be a big help – you’ll be less likely to let each other down!
