There’s nothing like a Monday put an end to a perfectly good week-end. Many people just don’t do Monday’s well, myself included. Unfortunately, hitting the snooze button indefinitely isn’t usually an option. Getting yourself and the kids ready to tackle the day can be quite the challenge, tack on walking the dog and dealing with traffic or public transportation….it’s just exhausting. It helps to get things prepared the night before, clothes, lunch, snacks, pocketbook, keys etc. A partner who’s a ‘Morning person’ is a plus, then you can divide and conquer. Caffeine is often a necessity just to get out the door. Wouldn’t it be great if Corporations avoided Monday morning staff or sales meetings, why do they do that? Breakfast to go is a given, and a smoothie is not only healthy, it leaves you with a free hand to do a balancing act with the keys, pocketbook, tote, baby, holding your child’s hand etc. Energy-Boosting Smoothies
