New Moms Can Meditate on These Relaxation Ideas

Becoming a new mother is an amazing new change to happen in one’s life. Whether this is your first, second, or ninth time having a baby, you have heard of or know that almost everything aside from your baby takes a second seat – heck everything else is crammed into the very back. Newborns may be tiny, but they require more attention than anything else one can think of, save perhaps a dying friend or family member. We worry about SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), cuts, bruises, teething, feeding, diapering, digestion, rashes, coughing, throwing up, doctors’ visits and the family pet – its constant anxiety, at a high or low level. There are ways for us to relax however, and recuperate our sanity for another bout of dealing with our worries, which should no longer overwhelm us after some self-care.

2Drink Tea

Tea has specific aromas that help to bring forth the focus to senses that are not being used much at this time, and if you’ve ever heard of aromatherapy, you’ll know that aromas can actually change ones mood and bring forth certain reactions – calm, tranquility, focus, attention, zest, clarity, you name it, and there’s a scent for it. Try one of the many, many herbal teas out there for a moment of calm amidst the chaos. chamomile for calm, jasmine green tea for peaceful focus, orange spice for a bolder kick and hibiscus for a moment of fruit fun. Add whatever sweeteners you like, but if you want a healthier kind, add stevia (completely safe for breastfeeding.)

The main things will always be the main things no matter what you read, what age you’re living in, and what species you are – new moms need rest and movement, good nutrition and self-care. With those things you will be well-prepared, your relationship with yourself, your partner, your baby, family and friends will be much better maintained, so don’t feel you’re being selfish for taking a moment for yourself – in fact you are helping everyone you come into contact with by taking excellent care of yourself.
