Well, hey there! I am so excited to share this episode with you. If you're new to the podcast, my name is Sheena Walenta and I started this Mama Motivation podcast to help women and mothers everywhere design the life that they deserve and live a life with more joy and less overwhelm. Today's episode is about creating, cultivating, and maintaining energy throughout the day.

Keeping your energy up throughout the day is hard. And if you aren't paying attention, you can easily deplete all of your energy well before the day is finished.
Tune in to hear all about the four ways to manage and maintain your energy throughout the day.
Movement is the first key to creating and cultivating energy. Did you know that many athletes and high performers make it a mandatory practice to work out for 15 minutes the minute they check into a hotel when traveling? There is a reason for this, it reverses the effect of jet lag and creates energy. Motherhood is like constant jet lag. So it's imperative that we make movement a mandatory practice for ourselves each day.
Start your day with a full cup by doing something that makes you feel accomplished or pumped up in the morning. Whether that's journaling, meditating (see guided meditation link below), getting something off your to-do list, or getting your workout done, it's important that we feel like we are started our day off in a positive powerful way - it sets the tone for the rest of the day. As moms, we want to play offense, not defense.
Manage your social and work activities throughout each day. Are you an introvert? Do you feel exhausted after an outing with friends, long lunch meeting, or conference call? Schedule those out and limit your social activities each day. We want to ensure we have a little gas left in the take for the evening with our children.
