Can’t make it to work on time? Feeling extra tried?

You’ve been pulling 50-HOUR weeks, and your BlackBerry is filled with events, which you must grace with your presence, but you are thinking, you may need to skip out on most of these events to catch up on some much needed rest.

You go to bed early to make sure you're getting your recommended 7-8 hours of sleep, so you'll wake up feeling refreshed and energized. But, alas, you still feel extremely fatigue and tired during the day. You begin to wonder: What is going on, why am I so tired? Do I possibly need more than 8 hours of sleep? Should I start taking vitamins or change up my current vitamin regimen? Do I need to increase my Starbucks runs from two to four times a day?

Whether they have children or not, women on the go typically have a full day of activities. And if you are a FAB Chick, well, we know you have a multitude of things going on in your life, making you susceptible to feeling weary. But you don’t have to be tired. You can gain control of your life and win the battle over exhaustion.

Here are some FAB tips to help boost your energy:

·Eat breakfast
·Don’t skip meals
