And if you’re a ‘stressed-out, tired and exhausted soccer mum’ wondering where all your energy is going, this will help you monitor it much more closely and will likely reveal even the exact time of the day, you’re starting to loose it.
And if you knew that, you’d be able to fend it off.
It could be something as simple of a few bits of dried fruit and a few glasses of water, 20 minutes or so before your energy is about to be zapped.
