How To Boost Your Energy As A Busy Mum

Enjoy life in a way that feels good for you!

Feeling sluggish and tired? Parenting is hard work and after a long day, it's far too easy to grab the iPad and binge on your favourite show.

Although this feels like you're 'turning off' your brain, it's actually taking in a barrel of information but not processing it. If you want to put a spring back in your step, it's time to skip the Netflix sessions, and those extra cups of coffee and try these tips instead:


Let the sun in

Throw open your blinds and curtains as soon as you wake up in the morning and let that beautiful sunshine soar in. This will reduce the excess production of melatonin in your body (the hormone which makes you sleepy) and lift your mood so you can start your day with a smile.

Lightly exercise

Not only will this increase your endorphin levels, but it will also boost your cardiovascular health, which allows you to have greater endurance throughout the day. It doesn't have to be anything huge – take a fitness class, go for a walk or follow a workout video in your living room – anything that gets your body moving!

Enhance your diet

Support your body's needs with a diet supplement. We love Oz Farm Mother Care Nutritional Formula – a no-fuss nutritional shake, especially great for pregnant and breastfeeding women. It contains key nutrients to help with energy production and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue including magnesium, iron, and vitamins B6, B12 and C. See here for more information.


Be Social

Easier said than done, we know, but when you make time to catch up with friends (try to find family-friendly places so the whole family can come), it lifts your mood and your energy. You could join a social club or start a new hobby that gets you out and about. Take a look at these Adelaide Cafes With Play Areas.

Work these into your lifestyle, along with drinking enough water, eating healthily and getting enough sleep and watch your energy levels rise so you can enjoy being in the moment more with your family.
