Disclaimer: I am by no means qualified to preach about perfect parenting, but I'm trying and I'm learning as I go. It's hard, probably one of the hardest jobs I've ever had, and I'd love for you to learn right alongside me. I've taken the info for this blog post from the Attachment Parenting International website to best explain parenting in a natural and positive light.
Nope, I'm not talking about pounds. I'm talking about physical activity for mental health. Losing the depressed mood. I know, I know, you've heard it a million and one times before and, if you're anything like me, you are sick and tired of it. How on earth can you squeeze in a workout (that you don't even like doing, by the way) when you barely even have time to keep the house clean and run kids 300 different places? Stick with me and maybe I can offer something you haven't heard before.
C - Connect.
I’m not talking about reaching out to others for help. That’s another topic in itself. In regards to this post, Connect with yourself after birth. Really process what happened and move forward through any emotions you have surrounding the event. Trust me, you need to do this.
