Make Exercise a Habit
Physical activity should be part of your daily routine. Take your workouts seriously just like you do with your job. Go to the gym a few times a week, stay active throughout the day, and engage in physical activities. Brisk walking, swimming, yoga, dance, and aerobics are excellent for expectant and new moms.
Wear Stylish Maternity Clothes
Maternity clothes are more stylish and very comfortable than you could ever have imagined,while the nursing clothes ensure the style continues well after the baby is born. And guess what! You can start your pregnancy wardrobe with 4 essential pieces of a dress, pant, skirt and a blouse. Mix, match and accessorize and remain effortlessly chic.
Avoid Sugar and Junk Food
Sugar consumption is the main culprit for the onset of diabetes and obesity. It can also affect your pregnancy and cause massive weight gain. This harmful substance is being used in over 80% of food products on the market, so you read the labels carefully. Stay away from sugary desserts and highly processed foods.
Find Time to Rest
In this very busy time where there is always something very reasonable and important to do the whole day. However, be intentional about creating time specially to relax your body. You can sleep or listen to your favorite song while you lounge on the bed or couch during pregnancy. In another words find a couple of minutes to be lazy. Remember resting for few minutes won’t disrupt the world!
Being happy can be intentional, so give yourself a gift of happiness by thinking about beautiful memories, remember beautiful events, surround yourself with people who make you laugh and find time to laugh out loud with others and at yourself.
