Being a mom is an exhausting job and one that leaves me yawning almost all day long.
If you find yourself reaching for a cup of caffeine to boost your energy, it is time to make those yawns work for you, instead of against you!
Here is the plan: every yawn before noon will earn you 10 push ups and every yawn after 12pm will have you doing 10 jumping jacks.
Ideally you want to do them right away, but if you are in line at the grocery store when the yawn hits, make note of it and do it as soon as you get home. (Here is where my 2 year old comes in very handy. He never seems to forget how many yawns Mommy has!)
If push ups and jumping jacks are not your thing, feel free to substitute lunges or squats instead. Just make sure that your body does as much, if not more, moving than your mouth.
Chances are, these little bits of exercise sprinkled throughout your day will give you the energy you need and you’ll find yourself yawning less and less.
