5 EASY ways to boost your energy levels

“Having enough energy to get through the day has been a struggle of mine lately,” says Haley. “Always tired, finding myself falling asleep mid afternoon and struggling to get motivated because of it. 

“I know this is not normal for myself, so time time to make some changes to boost my energy levels.”

Here’s what I have focused on to gain my energy back:

1. Sleep

I started going to bed half an hour earlier each night, and I’ve felt like I’ve had so much more energy the next day.

2. Drinking the Healthy Mummy Smoothies

Every morning I have a smoothie filled with fruit, oats, chia seeds and spinach. By fuelling my body with nutritious food from the beginning of my day, I’m able to function better.

3. Meditation

Doing the Mind.Body.Breath session from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges app. I found I was able to fall asleep easier and was more rested the next morning.

The Healthy Mummy Mind.Body.Breath sessions are designed to support mindful motherhood (and compliment your exercise program while following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge).

It is designed to help reduce stress and improve mood among pregnant women and early mums, enhance your connection with self-care practices and really thrive through the transformation of motherhood.

4. Super Greens

Every afternoon, around 2:30pm, I fill my shaker with Super Greens. It gives me that pick me up for the rest of the day.

5. Exercise

Getting out for a walk each day not only clears my mind, but gets my body energised again. I also put a focus on completing 30 minutes of exercise from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge app.

“All these changes have given me a big boost in my energy levels and have helped clear my mind too,” she says.

“The Healthy Mummy app has honestly been a lifesaver for me over the past 11 months!”

Haley has lost an INCREDIBLE 16kg through the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, and she says she’s a HUGE fan.

“As a mum to three young children who wants to get as much nutrients into their diet as possible, I use the app to make the meals they love,” she says.

“A quick search in the recipe hub of their favourite ingredients and bingo! The whole family is eating a meal that is nutritious and delicious.

“The app comes with me everywhere! I can access it at anytime of the day to know what’s for dinner, keep track of my calorie and water intake and I’ve got a PT in my pocket. What more could I need!?”

Haley says that she spends each week planning her meals.

“I fit them around my kids and husband and can honestly say I rarely get any complaints,” she says.

“By following the meal and exercise plan I have been able to loose 16kg and 65cm! I feel like a new woman! Meal time stress is gone, exercise is no longer boring and I have all my information and progress in one handy spot.

“Joining the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and using the app has been the easiest and best decision I have made for me and my family. Even my hubby can use it!”
