TIPS

For Multi-task­ing Moms

Focus of SWFL - - News -

Even the most skilled multi-task­ing work­ing woman knows keep­ing ev­ery­thing on track is tough. From work sched­ules to so­cial cal­en­dars to find­ing time for your­self, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut with a chaotic rou­tine. Day to day is a chal­lenge enough and that holds true for moms across Amer­ica, even fa­mous ones like ac­tress Malin Ak­er­man. Ak­er­man ad­mits the joy of moth­er­hood and all of the in­creased ac­tiv­ity that comes with it makes her bal­anc­ing act tough, es­pe­cially with her new role on the small screen. The ABC “Tro­phy Wife” star wants to make the right choices with­out sac­ri­fic­ing time, taste or nu­tri­tion, while sa­vor­ing ev­ery mo­ment with her baby and hus­band. “Now more than ever, I ap­pre­ci­ate the lit­tle de­lights in each day. For me, that’s ev­ery­thing from get­ting to spend ex­tra time with my fam­ily to en­joy­ing my fa­vorite snack dur­ing a break on set,” said Ak­er­man. “I fell in love with Müller yo­gurt be­cause it’s a de­li­cious, nu­tri­tious snack that’s easy to grab and go.” Ak­er­man has mas­tered these sim­ple tips to make it all work:

Don’t Skip Break­fast.

• It’s im­por­tant for the en­tire fam­ily to start the day off right. Break­fast gives you en­ergy for the day and keeps you from cav­ing into all the bad op­tions when hunger hits mid-morn­ing.

Ready for Any­thing.

• Be­cause of her hec­tic sched­ule, Ak­er­man stocks the fridge with nu­tri­tious snacks that are easy to grab and go. Her fa­vorite treat is new Müller FrütUp Mango, a creamy yo­gurt topped with whipped fruit mousse which she de­scribes as pure bliss.

Take a Stroll:

• Ak­er­man al­ways tries to stay ac­tive. She loves go­ing on long evening walks with her hus­band and son.

Play Guess­ing Games:

• Ak­er­man likes to keep her mus­cles guess­ing, so she is al­ways chang­ing up her ex­er­cise rou­tine. Right now, her fa­vorite ex­er­cises are cy­cling class or pi­lates.

Buddy-up:

• She re­ally en­joys ex­er­cis­ing out­side in the sum­mer. Ak­er­man just grabs a girl­friend and goes for a hike. She loves that it keeps both of them on track.
