Becoming a mother is a wild transformation like no other. Yes, it is an absolute blessing and gift for a child to come into your life. But because this new little being needs so much love, care and attention, it is very easy for us to lose ourselves and become depleted. I hate to use this analogy, but it really hits the point home: just like on an airplane, we need to first put on our own oxygen mask so that we are able to actually help those around us. The same goes for motherhood. Many of us are trying to put those masks on everyone around us including our children, partners, parents and even co-workers … but we’ve neglected ourselves. Luckily Ayurveda is like a handy toolkit with simple pointers that will make a world of a difference in your energy levels and overall wellness. Here are some of my favorite tips and tools for rejuvenating through motherhood.
