What do you suggest for an energy drink or food? I’m wiped out because of stress.
It's important (especially during stressful situations) to eat as healthy as possible and drink lots of water. That is the best way to fight fatigue and stress. Greens (like kale) and fresh or dried fruits are great at providing energy quickly and whole grains, like brown rice or quinoa, and potatoes also provide slow and steady energy. I don't recommend caffeine or energy drinks or pills. It's like paying a credit card with a credit card. Also, if you haven't already, try our meal plans. -- you prepare a week's worth of healthy, energizing meals in 2-3 hours, and reheat during the week. I find having healthy food on hand helps reduce my stress and anxiety, particularly in situations where so much of my life is out of my control, in limbo or out of balance. It’s always great to have a plan and structure. Feel better soon!
