How many hats do you wear in a typical day? From chauffeuring kids to school and activities, leading discussions in the boardroom, and trying to keep the household up and running, we women wear many different hats. Go ahead and pat yourself on the back. You deserve it!

How many hats do you wear in a typical day? Women are busier than ever and I have 5 tips that help me stay energized throughout the day. These tips will help you as well!

Sometimes it seems like I’m juggling way too many hats at once. My schedule often includes speaking engagements (in front of 100’s of people – yikes), hosting large and small parties, counseling couples, planning weddings and spending time with my family. Plus, I have to make time for exercise and I would love a little me time. What’s a girl to do?

If you’re always running from one appointment to the next, I have some tips and tricks to staying energized while juggling your crazy schedule. You can thank me later.

5 Ways to Stay Energized

1. A Nutritious Breakfast

Start the day off right with a protein-packed meal. Trade in those doughnuts for hard-boiled or scrambled eggs and keep the carbs at a minimum. It helps reduce hunger and keeps your energy up until lunch.

Stay Energized Throughout the Day

Don’t skip lunch either! I like to eat a big salad for lunch every day. Most leafy greens are superfoods, so eat those veggies!

2. Short Exercise Routines

I tend to get bored when I exercise for long periods of time. That’s why I have an app on my phone with 7-minute workouts. Don’t laugh! These workouts may be short, but they are effective! I do these workouts several times a day and they help me stay energized.

3. Mid-Afternoon Snack Break

An afternoon snack will help you beat those afternoon energy slumps. Again, ditch those carbs and grab the protein. My go-to mid-afternoon snack is Honest Tea® and Lorissa’s Kitchen Korean Barbeque Beef.

How I Stay Energized

Lorissa’s Kitchen Korean Beef Barbeque is a better-for-you afternoon snack because it’s packed with protein and low in carbs. I also like that Lorissa’s Kitchen has a clean label featuring no preservatives or added MSG and it’s also gluten-free. The package fits in my purse and in my on-the-go busy lifestyle.

As a southerner, I’m all about that iced tea. Honest Tea is a tad sweet and so refreshing and pairs perfectly with Lorissa’s Kitchen premium protein snacks.

4.  Take it Outside

I try to spend at least 20 minutes outside every day. A quick walk in the afternoon will refresh you and you’ll soak up some Vitamin D at the same time.

When it comes to favorite places to walk, the beach wins every single time. The sunshine and the cool sea breeze is just what I need to clear my head.

5. Get Enough Sleep

I’m a morning person and I’m up way before the sun. I do my best work in the early hours of the day. So, in order to stay energized, I need to sleep like a baby at night.

To ensure I get a good night’s sleep, I never take my phone or laptop into the bedroom. It’s too tempting! Also, my bed is cozy and comfortable. It’s so important to invest in a good mattress.

I incorporate all 5 of these tips to stay energized during the day. How do you stay energized?

I hit a slump around 2 pm every day, so I always go get some coffee and a snack around that time. It usually helps pick me up!

I haven’t’ seen Lorissa’s Kitchen before. It reminds me of jerky ( a snack we all enjoy here) and sounds like it’s flavorful.

Amber Myers October 2, 2017 - 8:20 am

These are some great tips to keep in mind. I always try to get enough sleep. And I try to be outside when I can! I must try Lorissa’s Kitchen. It looks like a delicious snack.

I like to get up early and have some me time before starting my day. Eating a good breakfast is important. Drink water and take breaks and get outdoors are important.

I cannot function without a good breakfast! And getting some vitamin D in also makes such a difference in my mood and energy.

Jeanettte October 2, 2017 - 12:13 pm

I am pretty good at doing almost all of these. I have a hard time sleeping at night so I’m not good at that and I do forget to do a snack in the afternoon. I need to get on top of that.

Sarah Bailey October 2, 2017 - 1:49 pm

These sound like some great ways to stay energised, it can be so easy to overdo things, or forget to keep topped up on energy giving snacks

Great tips!! I’ve definitely been slumping lately and need to get back on track with all of this! 🙂

Anosa October 2, 2017 - 3:09 pm

One thing I don’t seem to do enough of is spending enough time outside, definitely loved these tips

Pam Wattenbarger October 2, 2017 - 5:47 pm

Getting enough sleep is really important. You can’t stay energized if you haven’t been getting enough rest.

Claudia Krusch October 2, 2017 - 7:12 pm

I need my afternoon snack to help me get through the evening. I am always looking for new products to try. I will have to pick up some Lorissa’s Kitchen Korean Beef Barbeque to try.

Mimi Green October 2, 2017 - 8:14 pm

I was almost failing this list until I saw #4. I’ve been taking it outside and going for walks and hitting my step goal. I’ve been doing pretty decent with getting plenty of sleep. I need to do better with my breakfast.

Kita Bryant October 2, 2017 - 9:48 pm

I’m terrible with just about all of these. Thank you for the reminder and the great snack idea!

Sapphire Kharyzma October 2, 2017 - 10:49 pm

You gave such great tips. They are all healthy and easy to do. I can literally see me doing them all.

Liz Mays October 3, 2017 - 12:22 am

These are wonderful ideas. Spending some time outside really is refreshing! I think the Honest Tea sounds really nice too!

That time between lunch and 3pm is my daily downtime. I feel so lethargic and most of the time I fall asleep on the couch. I will try your tips and those products to keep me alert and awake during those hours.

Jenn @ EngineerMommy October 3, 2017 - 9:14 am

These are great tips to stay energized throughout the day. It can get busy taking careof errands and getting everything done. I love your tips for finding an extra boost during the day.

Terri Beavers October 3, 2017 - 4:12 pm

I need to add some exercise into my day. I tend to get achy and that stops me a lot of the time. And I really need to get outside more and enjoy this sunshine while I can. Your tips are so helpful.

I know some good rest and an afternoon snack helps me with my energy levels.
