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.

4Take a bath

While dad or other mom takes baby out to a friend’s house, or while grandma looks after baby, take a nice, hot bubble bath with Epsom salts. Take some deep breaths, relax, read a book, and/or do whatever it takes to bring yourself to a peaceful state while soaking in the tub. Epsom salts help relieve sore muscle for all of you walkers, and the bubbles will help you feel luxurious once again after being a rag doll for weeks. Put a deep cleansing mask on for an extra feeling of glamour while giving your skin a fresh renewal.

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.
