Relief for Tired Moms


By Kristyn Kusek for Your Baby Today

"No doubt about it, being a mom is exhausting," says Martha Davis, Ph.D., author of The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook (Harbinger, 1995). Feel like you can't squeeze a single drop of energy out of your sapped self? Try these "feel better fast" tips:


  • Keep up the protein. "Don't skimp on protein -- it's what sustains energy," says Cynthia Sass, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association in Tampa, Florida. Try no-preparation-required protein snacks like cottage cheese, a golf ball-sized serving of nuts like almonds or pecans, or string cheese for an energy boost. 

  • Cut back on caffeine. Your energy crashes once the caffeine high fades. Have no more than a cup of coffee or two sodas a day. 

  • Eat often. If you go more than four hours without food, you're not eating frequently enough to maintain energy. Pack portable snacks and drinks in your diaper bag so you can snack every couple of hours.
