When are you most energetic? #NaBloPoMo

I've shared with you where I draw my personal energy from, what my daily energy drains are, my favorite way to recharge, and now I will share when I feel most energetic.

As I mother of three, most days I feel like I am going from sunup to sundown, and then some. I often times find that I have more energy first thing in the morning between 5am-8am. I believe that energy comes from getting a good night's sleep without any interruptions. Though I am never really too productive during that time! I get short bursts of productive energy throughout my day with the help of music and a relaxing bath. But I am always energized and extremely productive between the hours of 4 pm and 9 pm. I get my second wind once the kids are home from school and the day is coming to a close. After helping the kids with any homework, I get dinner wrapped up.

                                                 The kids' favorite board game this month

After dinner, we normally play a game or two either on the WII or one of the many board games that they have accumulated. Then come baths and bed, I am never up more than two hours after the kids are in bed because I know that 4:30 comes awful early! The hours before bed are just for me and the hubby to catch up on our day and spend a little bit of time together.

So, at what time(s) of the day do you find yourself most energetic and productive?

This blog post is part of NaBloPoMo January 2013.  The theme this month is “Energy” and today’s prompt was “At what time of day do you feel the most energetic and productive?”  Check out other great blogs that are participating and feel free to join the fun! 


  1. I applaud you for getting up at 4:30 in the morning. My husband gets up at quarter of four every day to drive to work for his 5 am shift. I don't know that I could do it day in and day out though I guess you do get used to it, don't you?

  2. My body is used to it, me not so much! I complain the whole half hour until I get everyone else up! If the kids were not in a school all the way across town, I wouldn't need to be up so early, but I love the school they are in and will do whatever I need to to keep them there!

  3. I am generally not up when you get your 1st bought of energy, but I am definitely with you on the 2nd. :)


  4. Great blog :) I applaud you as well for getting up that early...that's about the time that I'm going to sleep these days!

  5. Finally getting around to saying hi. I'm from bloggy buddies group. I tend to have the most energy - creative - between the hours of 3am - 5am. I have 2 boys (not littles) one of which I homeschool. Right now I'm loving it because they're out on school break but as soon as they're back in school I'll have to do a late night work schedule again.

  6. I have the most energy between 11 p.m.- 2 a.m..... generally. I do have that rare occasion where I fall asleep putting the babies to bed, but not often. This is also when I get the majority of my work completed.
