This thinking is absolutely not acceptable. Just like everyone else, mothers too need to take out time for themselves and do self-care. They should also get off days and just sit and relax. Working non-stop is not the healthiest habit to adopt. It can affect your physical and mental health in a big way. Now is the time to start being kind to yourself.
According to doctors, young mothers are generally nutrient deficient and experience hormonal disturbances. This is a result of a lack of self-care. Mothers do pay attention to their diet or exercise routine. They even do not realise the importance of their mental well-being. All they care is about their little once.
So, all the moms out there should start pampering themselves. Eat on time and have food rich in essential nutrients like iron, protein, carbohydrates etc. Also, do not forget to sleep for at least 7 hours. take out time for meditation and if possible book a spa appointment and have a relaxed day.
