Do you find yourself drudging through your work day? Maybe the 2pm energy crash is a bit too familiar?
My favorite way to boost my spirits in the mid-afternoon is to sit out in the sun, for 10 minutes or so, and sip on a healthy, refreshing drink.
AND I have just the refreshingly light drink recipe to kick start your 10-minute energy-boosting journey.

Lately, my drink of choice for my energy-boosting sessions has been a bottle of RISE Kombucha (I’m on day 21 of 30 of the kombucha challenge that I mentioned over here).
BUT if I can squeeze in two slots into my day, I whip up a quick light smoothie for the sun action.
Using juice and smoothies is how I maintain healthy, balanced energy throughout the day – no more 2pm crashes, overeating, binging or guilt. Start your journey to a healthy, balanced you.
Now I want to hear from you (because I’m sure you have fabulous tricks up our sleeve that will benefit all of us) –
How do you combat the 2pm energy crash?
Do you find it harder to eat healthy, or make choices you feel proud of, when you’re tired, drained or maxed out?
