Now Momma, we all know you want your kids to have a wonderful life. But you don’t have to make every day a carnival. It’s important that you also get some time to stop and enjoy too. Not just for post natal Pilates or because you too deserve a break.

You operate at your best when you are well rested, stress free and happy. You need relaxation, too! You have to tackle another busy year of school, work and family life.

So make sure you take some time out for you.

Catch up with friends and family.

The kids aren’t the only ones who need regular play dates. We all need adult conversations, right? You can also join our Mother’s Motivation group for a little online fix on Facebook.

Get some sleep on your terms.

Grab a nap when the kids do. Let the cartoons give you a morning sleep in if possible. Keep to that bed time routine so you can keep the kids focused as well as recouping some evening time with your partner or yourself.

Move baby, move.

Exercise is a super important part of keeping us well, happy and inspired. So don’t forget to schedule out time for your Body Beyond Birth postnatal Pilates work out and a little incidental exercise!

Use kids activities to give you ‘me time’.

You don’t have to be available all the time. There are plenty of great ways the kids can be entertained without needing you to be at the helm. Allow them that creative thinking time- and take advantage of things like trips to the cinema, school holiday camps and activities, sharing the play mate load with other parents and more.
