You learn a lot of things when you become a Wife and a Mother. One thing I’ve learned is how important it is for everyone to have their own time. Finding it hard to catch up on cleaning? Too tired to cook? Yup, we all do at times. But one thing I’ve finally realized is IT’S OKAY.
If I don’t feel like I’ve got the energy or have the patience I make sure I get 2 things done: I take care of my child then I clean my room. Why my room? It’s my space. And it’s one thing done that I’ll really appreciate. It’s decorated the way I want, I’ve got my Google Home in there to listen to relaxation music, I’ve got my Essential Oil Diffuser and I can close the door.. :p
So once my son goes down for a nap that is MY time. Sometimes I don’t need it, but when I do and don’t want to do anything else while he’s asleep – I clean my room, make my bed and just relax in here. I’m actually doing it RIGHT now and it’s amazing.
Some people don’t take enough time to recenter themselves and empty their minds. Which ends up leaving people feeling overwhelmed and pissy. How do I know? That was me too. Sometimes it can make my family resentful that I need this time but in reality I’m helping them out, hahaha!
So don’t feel guilty about having you time, just do it! And make sure you do it in a space that feels like yours ❥
As y’all know I’ve been struggling with some fatigue for awhile. It comes and goes and I believed it to be a Vitamin C deficiency but have still been super sluggish lately without knowing the reason why, STILL.
When I would wake up in the morning the first thing I would go for is a cup of coffee which in the end left me feeling sick to my stomach and almost just as tired if not more afterward! So I’ve decided to give it up and switch to tea to see if that’ll help at all. And so far, it’s been amazing!
I started drinking Cusa Tea as it’s an instant tea that comes in to-go packets which are so very convenient for a Mom who is always on the go like myself! Not only did I notice my energy levels go up in the mornings but I don’t feel as sluggish afterward and don’t feel dehydrated!
Cusa Tea is a Colorado company based out of Boulder (I love supporting local businesses!) and uses only premium, high-quality teas and fruits without any sugars or artificial gunk you see in other to-go packets in the stores! So I feel great having my toddler have sips! (Cuz you know.. Their stuff is not nearly as delicious as what Mommy is having 😛 )
They have a lovely variety of teas from black, green and oolong tea with varying flavors as well! (So far my favorite is the Mango Green tea! ❥)
I went to a health event recently that said that common coffees could contain Mycotoxins (mold toxins) that could be detrimental to your body especiallyif you’re sensitive to these toxins, but why would you want toxins in your body anyways?!
So I’m sure I’ll have a cup of joe every now and then but after feeling the way I have sticking with Cusa Tea and Stevia (I use Wholesome’s Stevia packets because of the convenience and it’s just straight Stevia leaf extract, no added stuff!) I’m going to keep staying on track with these in the mornings and whenever I need a midday pickup!
Try for yourself and see if switching from coffee to tea helps you with whatever fatigue, foggy-headedness, or grogginess you’re experiencing! You never know what you could use as an alternative to make you feel like new ☀
