You’ve heard it said that a mother’s work is never done, and how true that is! Even in this day of equality, moms are busier than ever, especially when holding down a full-time job while taking care of a family. That is not to say that dads don’t have their hands full as well, but this is about moms and how their day never seems to end.
How many days have you ‘almost’ made it through until 3 o’clock rolls around and all of a sudden that extra boost of energy you experienced during lunch seems to drain away, leaving you more exhausted than you were before? Well, take heart because there are some tips to help you revitalize long enough to make it through dinner and the bedtime ritual your kids have come to expect.
1. Get up and Get Moving!
If you have an office job, probably the worst thing you can do is to sit there without moving. Even if you have tasks at hand that prevent you from moving about the office, take a restroom break to get you up and walking if at all possible. Walk as quickly as you can to get the blood circulating and take a few very deep breaths. Oxidizing all those cells in your body will bring a bit of energy you were lacking, so do make this a ritual every time you feel your energy waning.
2. OTC Supplements with a “Stimulant Effect”
Here is where you need to be a bit careful. Sometimes those energizing supplements can be as dangerous as prescription drugs, so take the time to do your homework. One of the more popular supplements on the market is Kratom capsules, which you can simply swallow with a glass of water. Check out the information on https://thekratomconnection.com/kratom-capsules/ to learn how much you should take.
3. Vitamin B12 Is Highly Recommended
Also, you can find energy drinks made from all natural ingredients with the main active ingredient being vitamin B12. However, it is known that all the B vitamins work better in a complex together, so remember to check whether any other B vitamins are in the drink. Also, you will want to stay away from those energy drinks with high amounts of caffeine or sugar. While you may get an instant rush of energy, the resulting crash and burn will make you more tired than you are now – if you can even imagine that.
As a final note, although Kratom from the Maeng Da genus is closely related to coffee, the active constituent of this natural product doesn’t affect the body in the same way as caffeine does. You will also want to carefully monitor the amount you take because a smaller dosage gives you that burst of energy and a sense of wellbeing, but a larger dose may not be appropriate. In any case, you are always advised to talk to your doctor before trying any new supplements. Some people don’t tolerate new products well, so you will want to know if this is right for you. With that in mind, remember that you should never do anything in excess. As the old saying goes, enough is enough.

Achiva's products consist of a select group of special ingredients. The result provides a mix of natural sugars and soluble fiber that does not burn off or digest quickly but is still easy on your stomach. Since our products digest a bit slower, energy is still there when you need it. Don’t believe it? Take their delicious chews or fabulous drink mix for a spin and see for yourself.
Chia is a staple in Achiva's products. Since these little seeds can absorb nine times their weight in water, they gel up. This gel won’t pass through you as quickly as water or sports drink will. The result is more sustained hydration than you will get from other products.
Achiva does not add any chemically produced ingredients to their products in order to increase the electrolyte content. Coconut water and fruit juice powders provide an electrolyte combo that is similar to the leading electrolyte
I recieved samples of Achiva's products to review, including their Chocolate Brownie Mix, Energy Chews and drink mixes.
Chocolate Brownie Mix
It does not get any simpler than this. Just add water to this mix and bake for 30 minutes. The result is a gluten free, vegan, chewy and flavorful piece of chocolate heaven.
My Experience: I substituted coconut water in this brownie mix for added nutritional content. Making these brownies is so easy and they are so yummy! They are perfectly moist and chewy. My family loves them!
For a tasty beverage, you mix this drink mix with water. Put it in your water bottle for an on-the-go energy drink, or add less water and enjoy it as an energy gel. Substitute milk and it becomes a yummy pudding. The primary ingredient is chia seeds, and so they do not completely dissolve in any liquid.
My Experience: I received a variety of flavors to try out.My favorite flavors are Mango and Pomegranate. I mixed a pack of this drink mix into an 8 oz. bottle of water and shook it up really well. It has a pleasant taste, but it has quite a gel texture. That is because chia seeds do not dissolve. The gel is what makes chia seeds special. I usually wait 15 minutes after shaking it to drink it so that it has a smoother taste. It may not be pleasant for everyone, but the energy I have found by drinking this miracle concoction is amazing! I can go all day long and I feel absolutely wonderful. I no longer rely on sugary sports drinks for hydration or energy.
Achiva Energy Chews
For a quick burst of energy, enjoy one pack of Achiva Native Energy Beans, and follow with 8-12 ounces of water every 45 minutes to an hour. Perfect for jogging, running, hiking or long walks.
My Experience: I have started to go running on the roads around my home and I have never had the energy to do this before. I have been wanting to exercise more in the new year, so I decided to take my Achiva Energy Chews right before my morning run last week. I found that after a little getting used to, that they taste pretty good. I then drank an 8 oz . bottle of water. After waiting 15 minutes for the energy to kick in, off I went. I found that I was able to actually run longer and farther than I had before. My stamina was amazing and I did not tire out as quickly as I had before. I even had energy throughout the rest of my day!
