New Mum? Here’s 8 Ways to Help you Get your Groove Back After Having a Baby.

You’re happy and relieved to have your body back but let’s be honest your birthing experience has taken a toll on your body when bringing your little one into the world.
Because of these bodily and life changes, your confidence may have taken a dip. You’re low on sleep and you’re not particularly feeling as sexy.
So how can you get your groove back?
Take 15-minute showers to meditate, clear your mind and refresh yourself. Those few minutes to yourself are key in helping you decompress and prepare you for the demands of your little one and family obligations.
If you have your doctor’s approval to start getting fit, Start slow with walks around the neighborhood get some fresh air. Connecting with nature as well as some form of exercise is good for the mind. When your baby has gotten into a rhythm find time for a quick work out. This will help you get back to your old self and also those endorphins will help you if your hormones are causing you the baby blues.
Understandably, you’re tired and barley get enough sleep. Date nights don’t have to be complicated you can have one indoors – order in and watch a movie. Make sure you have pumped enough milk for your little one to enjoy a glass of wine.
Find a window in your day or set a day for pampering. It can be an express mani pedi or a massage. These days masseuse, hair dressers and nail artists do home visit’s. If you need some air and have good help make a quick dash out of the house to get your hair, nails or massage done. You can also do a DIY home pampering, paint your nails, have some scented candles and a bath, do a mask or facial at home and up the ante on your skin care routine.
