Why am I SO Tired all the Time?!
Wakeup, coffee, get kids ready for school, squeeze in a quick shower and throw some make up on your face, drop kids to school, head to work, coffee, work all day (stuffing any type of food into your mouth when you get a spare minute), 3pm – more coffee/vending machine, pick kids up from school/after school care/ activities, head home, cook dinner, battle through homework/school readers, battle through bedtime routine, then pray for that ‘magic time’ where you are left alone before you need to head to bed to start it all over again…..but then you see the washing pile, or hubby wants a ‘special cuddle’.
You are not alone.
Women are doing more, achieving more, ‘having it all’, but boy are we paying the price..
So what if we made ourselves a priority?
Here are 5 EASY things that you can do TODAY, that will make a massive difference to your energy levels and how you are coping with stress:
1/ Drink more water – honestly, this is one of the things that I need to remind nearly all my patients – fill a water bottle in the morning and have it with all the time. When its empty, fill it again. Have it in plain sight, as a reminder to drink.
2/ Meal Prep – This doesn’t have to be those perfect instagram worthy shots we see on social media…..this can be as simple as filling a container with rice crackers/carrot sticks and a small tub of hummus…..the lovely blend of fats/carbs/protein will be incredible at 3pm!
3/ Use your slow cooker – I don’t think that I could survive without mine….oh the horror!!
4/ Reduce the coffee – I know that you will be hating on me right now, but I promise you, reducing your coffee intake will stop the rollercoaster ride of energy peaks and troughs….I love coffee and have one in the morning (with some coconut oil in it, where is another story for another day!).
5/ Get to bed! – I understand…the only time to get some downtime is late at night, but you are cutting your nose off to spite your face there.
So which of these can you do TODAY to feel better?
Can you look at these changes with a sense of curiosity?
Things are simple things that create BIG changes and results for many women – let me know how you go!
Big love and plenty of energy,
