Before You Read the steps to Energize a Tired Mom, Take an Honest Assessment

Sometimes our biggest enemy can be ourselves.  We make choices every day that impact how we think, believe, and act. These actions and decisions can make such a difference in our daily reality.

Our lives get rocked when that little baby comes into our lives and totally upends our normal routine.  We have to figure out how to meet another humans needs…every hour of every day!  

We go into survival mode for those first few months when sleep is little and feeding and bouncing is lots.

However sometimes we can get stuck in that survival mode and never take the space to make a plan or check in with our needs.  Before you know it you are exhausted and feel miserable. 

Here are 3 simple steps to energize a tired mom.


#1: Fuel Your Body with the Right Nutrients!

The most important factor to energize a tired mom is what you fuel your body with.  

When fueling your car you make sure to put in the correct type of gas.  Fuel that has the wrong mix will lead to poor performance or it not running.

It is the same for our bodies.  Feeding our bodies the wrong mix leads to lack of energy.  

When we get stressed and busy, we tend to grab the easiest thing, high carb, sugar-filled, and highly processed but low on nutrition. 

Look for foods that are dense in nutrients such as fish, beef, leafy greens, seeds and nuts, berries and avocados, and sweet potatoes. 

 PROTEIN SHAKES!

I highly recommend hitting an easy button and add a Life Shake protein shake into your daily routine. 

Protein shakes are the number #1 super simple way to energize a tired mom and make sure you are getting high quality protein and micronutrients every day.  

Protein shakes take only 3-4 minutes to mix up in the blender.  It is so easy to take on the go in an insulated mug and drink while you are busy with the kids.  

I choose Life Shakes because they have 20g of Non-GMO protein, 6g of fiber so it is filling, prebiotics to help a healthy gut, as well as a whole list of great nutrients that we need to feel energetic. I have noticeably felt more energetic once adding this to my daily routine. It is like coffee in that I don’t want to go without! 

NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTATION

Another nutritional step that greatly helps is nutritional supplementation. 

 After growing a baby our bodies are depleted and our food alone might not meet the levels of nutrients we need to get back to feeling ourselves. 

 Look for supplements that are tested and a company that is interested in making them bio-available which means they actually are absorbed by the body.  Omega 3s, Vitamin B Complex, vitamin D, and probiotics are all foundational supplements to start off with.  

Paring quality supplementation with protein shakes has totally transformed my energy levels and is the #1 way to energize a tired mom.

#2 Get Active!

The next step to energize a tired mom is to get active and move that body.  

But wait you say, “I feel so tired I don’t have the energy to do a workout.”  This would be one of those sabotaging self talks.  Your body needs to move.  Change that thought to “I will work out or move to get more energy.”   

Just getting in 10 minutes a day can make huge improvements in your energy not to mention your mood.  

Movement such as taking a walk, doing a quick 10 mobility routine or HIIT workout, or a short yoga session gets your blood flowing to all parts and your brain which promotes alertness.  

Your muscles get stretched and warmed up to improve mobility.  Also it gets some of those feel good chemicals such as endorphins flowing which makes you feel better.  

Another great benefit is that movement tires your body out to help you with your sleep!  

Plan a 10 minute window in each day where you can move in some way. 

#3 Protect and Maximize Sleep

I remember trying to adjust to the new life of never having anytime to just be by myself and do what I wanted to do.  When I got that little window of free time while the baby naps or the kids are in bed I was excited to finally have time to myself.  

It felt like a waste of time to try and sleep.  I might not actually get to sleep. It was the only time I had to get things done.  

However, sleep is a very important part of your wellness.  It affects your moods, your functioning, and outlook on life.  

Love yourself enough to set limits to protect your sleep.  Don’t get tempted to stay up just one more hour to watch that TV show for “me” time.  Before you know it you have stayed up until midnight and shortened your overall sleep time to 5-6 hours.  Your “me” time, if you are feeling low on energy, should be a date with your pillow.  

Your goal should be to get 8 hours of sleep.  Here are a few tips to make sure you are able to maximize your beauty rest and energize a tired mom.  


Set a routine bedtime for yourself and stick to it.
Sleep when the baby or kids are asleep
Stay off screens for at least 30 minutes before bed
Enlist spouse to take care of kids so you can get some sleep.
