The pregnancy journey is a beautiful one, where your body transforms to meet your baby’s needs. You may even find changes in the way that people act around you. Getting accustomed to the changes you observe in your body and your life can be both exciting and challenging. There are so many questions running through your head about what you can or cannot eat, and what you can or cannot do.
Now, as confusing as this journey may seem, it is important for new mothers to stay as stress-free as possible. Your happiness is good for your baby’s health. So, here are a few tips for you to stay happy and stress-free throughout your pregnancy:
1. Do Things You Enjoy Doing
You feel your best when you treat yourself well. So make sure to do a couple of things you WANT to do. This could be shopping for trendy maternity wear (you can wear them later on as well) and doing activities that you enjoy - walking, painting, etc. You could also treat yourself to a massage. Massaging your skin with oil before a bath helps promote blood circulation thereby giving you softer, firmer skin. Himalaya FOR MOMS Toning Massage Oil contains Country Mallow and Winter Cherry, which are known to help make the muscles strong and healthy.
2. Make Bath Time All About Relaxing
Don’t just take any bath to de-stress yourself. Take a relaxing, aromatic bath to calm your senses. Himalaya FOR MOMS Moisture Rich Rose Soap & Himalaya FOR MOMS Moisture Rich Jasmine Soap are enriched with natural emollients like Virgin Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, and Mango Butter, which soothes the skin and prevents dryness. Also, the mild fragrance of Rose or Jasmine can help uplift your mood by calming your mind and relaxing your body.
3. Embrace The Changes
Every woman is different. Some may get stretch marks, others may not. Although you can’t completely avoid the appearance of stretch marks, you can help fade the marks by acting early on. Using Himalaya FOR MOMS Stretch Marks Cream and Stretch Mark Oil from the second trimester can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. It contains Butter-Oil Infusion which helps relieve dryness and itching linked to stretch marks. It also contains an advanced Herb-Oil blend that improves skin elasticity and gradually fades the marks.
4. Take Good Care Of Yourself
When you get those cravings, try to opt for healthier alternatives. Make sure you drink plenty of water. With the frequent trips to the bathroom, it is necessary to rehydrate. Go for a stroll outside with your partner (if your doctor approves) and talk to each other about anything that may be on your mind. It is important for you to stay stress-free and to have a support system.
By following all of these tips, you can have a healthy and happy pregnancy. Himalaya FOR MOMS is your best pregnancy companion with products that are designed specifically for pregnant and new mothers.
