Ways to Combat the Feeling of Fatigue Every Morning

Does the sound of birds singing outside your window at daybreak make you want to reach for shotgun?

That’s ok. You’re not a morning person. I hear you. It’s perfectly normal. Maybe you’ve been up all night tossing and turning. Perhaps, you’ve got a horrible day at work ahead and you just can’t find the desire to get up. Or maybe it’s just another in a long line of wet, miserable days outside.

Easy Yogurt Cups (with reusable dishes!) #canningparty

Disclosure: I have partnered with YMC and Bernardin and have received compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.

I’ve been trying to cut down on waste this year so for all our meal and snack prep I have been using reusable dishes and sandwich containers. Plastic litter takes thousands of years to decompose.

One small change I implemented is that I stopped buying single serve yogurt cups. I buy the big tubs and dish out servings in our reusable plastic containers or mason jars. This not only saves a lot of extra garbage, but it also saves money because the big tubs of yogurt costs considerably less then single serve yogurt cups.
