Every morning, I wake up with a pretty clear vision of what I need to accomplish that day. Our morning routine doesn’t stray too far with Brayden in school, and I usually have a pretty productive morning with just Kenley in tow. But most days, by 3pm, I am hitting a wall. I feel like I can’t be alone in this, so here are my tips for powering through the afternoon slump.
Make a list.
When I stay on top of what is in my planner and my to-do list, I find a little more energy to check some things off. I sit down with a Skinny Cow® Mocha Latte Creamy Iced Coffee and take 15 minutes getting my list up to date, crossing things off I did that morning, and adding things as I need to. It helps me stay focused on what’s going on, and allows me to plan ahead. Who doesn’t need a little caffeine boost?
Read for 15 minutes.
Sometimes, I need to just escape reality for a few minutes to recharge, so I sit down with a book for a little bit. Add a dark chocolate Skinny Cow® Blissful Truffle Candy Bar, and a little of my favorite Young Living essential oil, and it’s just the retreat I need to power through the rest of the day. The chocolatey candy bars come in two flavors, milk chocolate and dark chocolate, and either way, they are a great boost for my afternoon.
The times where I don’t want to work out are the times I NEED to work out! If I am feeling tired mid-afternoon, I go hop on the treadmill or put a PiYo DVD in. It’s a mental break that also helps strengthen my body, and I find that I sleep better at night on the days that I exercise. Funny how that works…
A big glass of ice water with a lemon is one of my favorite afternoon pick me ups. Every once in a while, the kids like to change up their normal afternoon snack of crackers, fruit, or fruit snacks with popsicles or ice cream. It’s usually a special treat- so sometimes I grab a Skinny Cow® Vanilla Almond Crunch Bar for myself. So decadent!
You can find all of these Skinny Cow® products at your local WalMart, and look for a Skinny Cow® demo in the Champaign and Bloomington WalMarts on May 10th! You won’t want to miss out on a little indulgence.
