Tips for Boosting Energy During Pregnancy
While you’re pregnant, your body is working overtime to keep your baby healthy and nourished.
All this hard work can take it’s toll on a mom-to-be, leaving her body feeling fatigued and exhausted.
Although you might be feeling uncomfortable in those later stages of pregnancy, getting your body moving can actually give you a welcome boost of energy. We’re not talking about amateur body building here, just a walk around the block or a few gentle aerobic exercises. You might be pleasantly surprised with how refreshed you feel after incorporating a stroll in the park or some light yoga into your daily routine.
It might sound obvious, but if you’re particularly fatigued throughout your pregnancy you might not be getting enough quality sleep. Letting your body unwind and relax for an hour or two before you fall asleep helps balance your sleep pattern to whisk you away to a deeper, more meaningful sleep. Especially in your later stages of pregnancy, there’s nothing wrong with some mid day naps when you’re feeling uncomfortable. Your body is working hard and you should reward it with a good night’s sleep and naps as you need them throughout the day.
Pregnancy cravings are serious and although you might be finding yourself reaching for something to satisfy your sweet tooth, a balanced diet can actually keep you feeling energized. Powerful proteins and complex carbs will keep your body going while actually filling you up. Nuts, cheese and dried fruit make awesome snacks to give you that wave of energy your body needs to feel good and take on a busy day.
