How to love your body after having kids
Loving your body after having kids can be a difficult task, especially with the constant bombardment of societal pressure to "bounce back" to your pre-baby body. However, it's important to remember that your body has gone through an incredible transformation and should be celebrated, not shamed.
One way to start loving your body after having kids is to focus on the positive changes it has undergone. Your body has done something truly amazing by growing and bringing new life into the world. It may sound odd, but the fastest way to get to a new-and-improved situation is to make peace with your current situation. Instead of fixating on the extra weight or stretch marks, try to appreciate the strength and resilience of your body and the new curves and their softness.
Another tip is to prioritize self-care. Self-care can mean different things to different people, but it should always involve taking care of your physical, emotional, and mental well-being. This can include things like exercise, eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and setting aside time for yourself. We know this can be hard with a newborn but it is best for both of you when you are feeling nourished and supported and that begins with self-care.
They say comparison is the thief of joy and we couldn’t agree more. Maybe in this season of your life it is a good idea to unfollow or mute any accounts on social media that make you feel down or take you into a spiral of comparison, especially if it’s one where you find yourself lacking. Social media can be a great resource and comfort in this period of your life and allows you to stay connected to the outside world so just be conscious of what you are consuming when scrolling and how it’s making you feel. Stay connected to the positive, uplifting vibes and remember social media is just a snapshot not the full picture.
