You spent 9 months pregnant; eating, drinking and exercising for your baby. Now baby is here and your focus is on how much is baby eating/drinking, sleeping and of course.. pooing (who would have thought that would be a conversation topic?!) But mama, what about you? I want you to know that, You. Are. Important. Yes all the gifts are for your little bubba and everyone visiting wants a cuddle; with the baby. But you are the one giving life and your life needs sustaining.
Do yourself a favour today and when your baby naps, whether that is in your lap or in their bed (triumph!) I want you to sit. Sit comfortably. Turn off the TV. Forget about the washing. Forget about the laundry. Think only about you. If your hands are free, place one on your heart centre and one on your belly. Close your eyes. Bring your awareness to your breath. Allow your hands to rise and fall with every inhale and exhale. Slow you breathing to a steady, even pace. Begin to count to 5 on your inhale and 5 on your exhale. Stay here, with your breath. Relax the face, unclench the jaw and release the eyebrows. Let the face be soft. Bring your attention to your third eye. Breathe.
Aim to stay here for 5-7 minutes or as long as possible for you and your baby.
