You know the feeling – it’s mid-afternoon, your children want you to do something fun and active, you have to get dinner ready soon, and you just want nothing more than a nap. It’s that draggy, afternoon feeling that busy parents sometimes experience. Besides slugging down caffeinated drinks (which isn’t very healthy), what can a busy parent do to get an energy boost?
This week I had the luck of trying out the new Smoothie King Veggie Blend smoothies! If you’re looking for an afternoon pick-me-up you’ll want to give it a try to. From their “Take a Break Blends” to their “Fitness Blends“, you’ll be able to find something to fill your needs!
I’m kind of known as the girl who blends veggies into EVERYTHING, so it’s no surprise that I’m crazy over these new Veggie Blends, designed to help you fill your health and wellness goals. Plus, we’ve got a coupon for you to try the new Veggie Avocado Pineapple Smoothie, with a full, and delicious, serving of fruits and vegetables to make your body happy.
In honor of these delicious new smoothies I wanted to share a few pieces of advice on natural ways that you can get an energy boost as a busy parent!
1. Eat well.
This one is a no brainer, right? Fresh, raw fruits and veggies are the way to get some powerful nutrient that’ll keep your body going all day long!
Did you know that Smoothie King gives you the option to add supplements to your smoothies? They’ve got enhancers for: fitness, slimming down, and just general wellness. Their energy enhancer includes Ginkgo Biloba, Siberian Ginseng.
While it may feel like the last thing you want to do, exercise can invigorate the body. It promotes good circulation and gets oxygen throughout your body. Do something light and invigorating like jumping rope or brisk walking.
Even if it’s just for a few minutes, meditation can help you escape from what’s stressing you out in the first place. All the stimulation and stressors of life can be overwhelming, making you feel driven all the time to accomplish as much as possible. Meditation gives you a break from your stressful environment.
5. Sleep well.
Do try to get at least 8 hours of quality sleep every night. It seems obvious, but it’s actually one of the last things many people consider when they complain of fatigue during the day.
