Which Energy?

By Partycraftsecrets @partycraftsecrt
Which Energy?It's no secret that under the 'consevation of energy' law energy is neither created nor destroyed; it's simply transformed or moves place... Ok, so that's a bit intense for a blog post on a kids' party craft site!
It's all about energy in my life at the moment; finding the energy to get up in the morning, maintaining the energy to push the double-pram up the hill from swimming lessons, grabbing some spare energy from a cup of coffee to make it through the dreaded afternoon hours until our dinner-time boost... you know the drill.
I recently read some articles about increasing personal sources of energy, and in making notes can paraphrase the key elements into a nice little acronym for you; SWANEY - think of the ugly duckling that grows into the graceful swan, and then remember these words;
  • Sleep - get as much as you can!
  • Water - drink your 8 glasses a day.
  • Attitude - fake it til you make it.
  • Nutrition - eat lots of good stuff and minimise the rest.
  • Exercise - boring but true.
  • Yes - say yes, be positive, open yourself up to trying to create a new, energetic life for yourself.

I say start small - like Lotti loving a little mermaid treasure in the photo... I guess if you can't change anything else in the SWANEY arrangement - go for attitude.
If you're like me, you get little or no sleep, forget to drink while busily running after toddlers, and eat apple-cores and toast-crusts for breakfast, then energy often seems like an illusion... I understand - I'm there with you... the only advice I'm qualified to offer is "keep going"... we're all in this together!
