Giving birth to a baby is the most miraculous feeling, a feeling which fills you with felicity and yet leads to a lot of apprehensions. It’s irrefutable that a mother sacrifices everything for her baby, the purest form of love, be it her sleep, figure, schedule, or sanity. There are gargantuan of hormonal, physical and mental changes and hence, she needs to take care of herself in the right way. Here’s a look at some easy tips for all the new mothers to keep themselves sane and feel beautiful.
Keep yourself clean
It is really important to maintain hygiene all the time, however after the delivery, being there 24 by 7 for the baby can take your personal hygiene for a toll. Dirty diapers, gooey food, and maternity clothes, baby creams are an inseparable part of motherhood. Have a shower every day; this leaves both your body and mind fresh and more importantly relaxed.
Try yoga for mental and physical peace
Exercising is one of the best ways to release the toxins in your body, as well as to get rid of the stress. Yoga is known for imparting a natural glow while curtailing pessimistic emotions to a great extent, helping you control them instead of letting the emotions control you.
Post-pregnancy, looking after the baby may get tiresome, and hence you might want to binge eat. Often, women are stuck in a conflict of binge eating and reducing the weight gained due to pregnancy and this conflict may make you hysterical. While, it is very important to have food rich in fiber, full of fruits and green vegetables, it’s important to satiate your cravings as they can instantly lift up your spirits. So, there’s no harm in eating a little to satisfy your taste buds. Remember, a happy mother means a happy baby. However, avoid over-eating. Motherhood requires you to be physically capable as well mentally happy to take care of your little human.
Drink plenty of water
This is one aspect we tend to forget when occupied. For a healthy skin, one must drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day. It will moisturize your skin on the inside and will help retain the elasticity of your skin. Water is also beneficial for your liver especially post-delivery.
Skin care routine
Dead skin, pigmentation, and acne are common after pregnancy. It is essential for you to have a skincare routine – so don’t forget to cleanse, tone, and moisturize your face. This will not only help your skin but also help you enjoy as you indulge in some me-time.
Take as much rest as possible
As you sleep, your body rejuvenates itself. It is also why we tend to use most of our skincare products at night when we are going to sleep. However, with your baby constantly waking up in the middle of the night, it might be difficult to actually get some rest. Make sure, you get rest, take a nap whenever the baby is sleeping.
