Being a parent is hard, but being a single parent is another story. Juggling your time between spending time with your kids while balancing your busy work schedule could be a nightmare for some, but according to these amazing single parents, it is fulfilling and refreshing no matter how haggard you can get.
Anna, 38, a single mom from Makati shares: It is hard to work in the corporate world while making sure my kids have the attention they need, everything they need. Sometimes, I get home from work so exhausted and stressed out that all I want to do is sleep but I can’t do that because I have kids who depend on me so much. I don’t find it very difficult but you know it when everything just takes toll on your body. It’s either I get to spend an amazing time with my kids and be too tired for work or the other way around. For a long time, I felt like a zombie trying to balance mom and career woman life but my struggle ended when I learned the tricks on working around how I can maximize my energy without living like a zombie:
- As much as I can, I try to divide rigorous activities and not squeeze it on an entire day. This leaves me with more energy than ever. Like I wouldn’t do the laundry if I know I will be cleaning my entire house for the day. I schedule these chores and spread it out for the rest of the week.
- I exercise for about 15 minutes the moment I wake up. This makes me rev up and gives me plenty of energy to use on a daily basis. I feel a bit more sluggish when I don’t exercise that’s why I squeeze a routine even for just a short span of time.
- When I feel like my energy wouldn’t last very long, I pick up activities that my kids and I can do together without needing to run and play rough like do puzzles or water color painting.
Aside from all that, I get my fix of energy boost through food supplements with combinations of Taurine, Ginseng, Sodium Ascorbate, Vitamin B1, B6 and B12 can also help in providing daily energy boost as these components may have the ability to provide extra energy while improving alertness and focus.
Taurine and Ginseng promotes alertness, reduces stress and provide energy boost, Sodium Ascorbate helps in tiredness prevention and muscle weakness, Vitamin B1 aids in converting food into energy, Vitamin B6 enhances metabolism speed and Vitamin B12 aids in energy production. Now if you think it’s hard to find a product that has benefits like this and caffeine free, I am sure you’d like the new Robust Energy.
