Being a new mom takes a lot of adjustments to make and many discoveries to learn. Having a baby seems to take a toll on a new mom’s ability to take on new challenges brought about by their conception. In fact, 70% of new moms tend to struggle with their emotions after giving birth. This is according to the recent survey done by The Baby Show.
New moms may also experience having little to no time to look after themselves. They may also find it difficult to be at peace during their motherhood journey. In fact, it takes an average of 4 months and 23 days for new moms to become used to the idea of being a mother. This was according to a study done by Munchkin. Besides, they also claimed that 57% of people see things as muddy and blurry during this time.
As a new mom, it is important to catch a breath for a few minutes everyday to maintain balance in your life. Taking care of your spiritual health will also help you cope with the lifestyle changes of having a baby.
Finding some “me time”
“Me time” is a precious commodity when you are a new mom, albeit essential. If you can’t look after yourself, you can’t look after your little one. When tired, treating yourself to a few things can also make all the difference. For instance, a new soft robe can make you feel comforted when you need it most. Ordering easy meal kits may spare you some time for yourself. Hiring someone to do household chores may also free some time for you to focus on yourself. When your baby is sleeping, you can also find time to rest, rather than always trying to get stuff done.
Spend some time to practice mindful meditation. As a new mom, meditation will give you a spiritual cleansing to rebalance and relax. Learning meditative breathing techniques are also particularly helpful when stressed or anxious. Apps such as Calm, Headspace, and Simple Habit may come handy. Mindful meditation, combined with crystal therapies, may improve your focus. Feel free to do it anytime whenever possible.
A research published in Medical News Today has found that yoga is beneficial for your health. It helps boost your energy levels and well-being. As a new mom, this is exactly what you need. Yoga helps lower your resting heart rate and blood pressure, making you feel relaxed. The effects of doing yoga is also associated with having positive outlook in life. Following some guided yoga sessions online is easy. As a result, finding spiritual happiness may be within reach as well.
Your spiritual health is extremely important when you are a new mom. Taking just a few minutes for yourself every day can make all the difference.
