Mom Energy





Hey Holistic Moms! Want Energy???

Today, whether it’s food, supplements, or holistic practices, moms everywhere are clamoring for more energy to get done what they need to in a day. But is this pursuit one that will help achieve optimal health? No.

Behold, Mom Energy:A Simple Plan to Live Fully Charged (Hay House 9/2011), which seeks to explore the differences between more energy and better energy (the latter providing the path to optimal health). Like the airplane safety speech, we have to put on our own oxygen masks before putting on anyone else’s and Mom Energy is your oxygen mask.

Join Ashley Koff on the Holistic Mom’s Network Facebook wall Monday night 10/3 at 8pm EST to answer your Mom Energy questions.

Comment below about your need for energy before, during or after the chat on the Holistic Moms Network Facebook Page wall (https://www.facebook.com/HolisticMomsNetwork) on Monday night. Two winners will be announced on Tuesday to receive Mom Energy!




Congratulations to Chakra angel and Kase's Mom - you are our winners! Please email us your name and mailing address so that we can send you each a copy of Mom Energy. Email info[at]holisticmoms[dot]org.

  1. I loved Ashley's top tips for more energy! Her idea of getting a massage and being a Qualitarian are my favorite tips :)

  2. Personally, I never got hooked on coffee and it turned out to be a blessing. I'm allergic to it and it sends my lil heart in to a FIT (like blood pressure that reads 180/100). I keep things simple by making sure I get as much sleep as I can and eating well-balanced meals (even when I want nothing but a big bowl of sugar to keep me going). By making sure I get enough protein and good complex carbohydrates I'm able to function. Also, the fact that I make the time to hit the gym 5-6 days a week helps to give me energy. The first few weeks were hard and it seems counterintuitive, but it really does make a huge difference in my energy levels.

  3. Great chat - thanks so much! Fun format, and great to have it all on FB to go back to and review in the morning while I sip my coffee (gasp! LOL!). Seriously, though, I learned that I am doing some stuff right :-)
    I would love to learn more about nutrient balancing - and make it a habit that's natural, not needing to consult a book or a list at every meal. I loved the idea of water with lemon to counteract my coffee habit - that's an easy one I can start (again!) right away.

  4. Great chat. I am glad I was able to follow on FB because I am a Twitter-phobe. After hearing Trudy Scott speak at the conference as well as reading this chat with Ashley Koff, I am committing to a few small but MAJOR (to me) changes in my diet. Thank goodness I have my HMN ladies for support!

  5. Great chat. Thanks for putting it together. I always miss the twitter parties, this was much more accessible for me. Was interesting how many Mom's rely on coffee to get through the day. I gave up caffeine many years ago and just recently I have considered just having a little bit to get me through the day with my 2 year old. Good to be reminded of all the other wonderful ways to regain energy. Also wonderful reminder that finding time to recharge with meditation, exercise and yoga need to be a priority in my life. Looking forward to reading the book and learning more about energy/food balancing. Thanks again ladies and HMN for helping to enrich our lives.

  8. Thanks for the chat! I am a mom who could sure use some more energy. The tips were great! I have 2 kids ages 3 and 1 and I just went back to work part time. I am feeling very challenged and tired. I know I need to make some major changes in order to have more energy! I should go to bed now and get some sleep. Thanks for the giveaway and chat!
