Are you struggling with energy? You are not alone!
I used to reach for coffee or caffeinated tea every day around 3 or 4:00 because I couldn’t picture how I would make it through my day with the stamina I needed to care for my four kids and their after school activities (and struggles). I thought it was normal to be dead tired by 6 PM, but guess what!? It’s not normal! You can have better, long lasting energy that takes you through your day. Tip #1 Eat breakfast. Getting a balance of protein and carbohydrates in the morning gives you increased energy. Skip the surgery cereal and go for eggs with veggies and a side of toast.
