Moms want to be there for kids at all the times. So moms need to be very strong and active. But while taking care of their kids, they forget about their own health.
But by making very small and simple changes in your daily lifestyle, you can get major health benefits.
You may be suffering from back, neck or shoulder pain after the birth of your baby. The mot common reason for that is a wrong posture. It really matters how you sit and stand.
If you are breastfeeding, always use a pillow to support your baby during the feedings so that you can sit up straight later on. When you stand, stretch yourself as much as you can.
It is very important to loose that extra baby weight as soon as you can. Being over weight is not good for the health. Try to introduce fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet rather than munching on snacks.
Include fruits which are high in antioxidants in your diet such as apples, avocados, pears, almonds, sweet potatoes, and broccoli.
Never postpone your dental appointments even when you are very busy juggling with your kids. A gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Research shows that people who suffer from gum diseases are more likely to suffer from coronary diseases.
Always try to get proper sleep. Try to stick to your bed time daily. Keep your room dark and free of any unnecessary gadgets.
Many new mothers suffer from postpartum depression. It is triggered by hormonal fluctuations and stress of new responsibilities. Get plenty of support from your spouse and friends. Talk to your doctor if you suspect any serious issues with your behavior.
Go for regular tests like blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose screening, Pap smear, mammograms etc for a healthy life.
Take a break from your daily routine. Enroll yourself in dance classes. Dance not only helps in burning calories it also strengthens the muscles and keeps the heart healthy.
Dancing is a very good exercise and it helps in elevating your mood. You can dance with your kids too. Just put some music on and enjoy with your little ones.
