5 Things To Keep You Going

Buying a car is exhausting and stressful work, but when you add a 50 hour work week and preparing a store for memorial day weekend...Well I'm pooped. Here are 5 things that have kept me going this week.

1. Peanut Butter
Peanut Butter
I've never been a peanut butter lover, but after this week I'm an addict! It's filling, gives you protein, and a little fiber. If you lather it on some bread then you get some carbs and BAM! Powerhouse of a meal. Never underestimate a good PB&J. Just make sure you go for the reduced sugar options, and natural if you can.

2. Problem by Ariana Grande.
I've never been a big fan of Ariana Grande, but I LOVE her new song Problem with Iggy Azalea. It's up beat and puts a little dance pep in my step when I'm starting to drag my feet.

3. Deep Breath. Raise your hand if you want to smack someone when they tell you to "calm down" and take a deep breath. Uhm, yeah, that's me! BUT, if you're starting to feel frustrated, annoyed, antsy, or whatever, taking a second to just take a deep breath actually does help a bit. If you're about to go all King Kong on someone then I'm not sure how much it will help, but it definitely helped me through my stressful car buying process!

4. Water
Adding to the peanut butter, I kind of hate water...Is that weird? However, I've noticed that I feel so much better when I drink a few bottles of water while I'm working. Dehydration can give you headaches and make you sleepy and nauseous, so drink up!

5. Me Time. There aren't enough hours in the day. Can I get an Amen? I feel like this week I am in a routine where I wake up, work, come home, deal with car stuff, go to bed. It kind of brings my outlook down, which is never good in the summer! There isn't a lot of time for "me time," which most people can agree with. I've been trying to take an hour before bed, or an hour early in the morning to just sit, relax, and read a blog post, book, emails, etc. It helps me get motivated and back in a positive mood.

Doubt me all you want but I've seen quite an improvement in my overall mindset because of these things! Give it a try and let me know how it works for you! Since you've read to the end, here is a bonus Zimby pic to help keep you going ;)
