Postpartum Weight Loss- Overwhelm

Posted Jan 07 2009 2:49pm

As a therapist, one of the biggest complaints I hear from moms of all ages is the feeling of overwhelm.  Moms often feel there is so much to do, yet not enough time to do all of it.  I’ve found the greatest cause of the feeling of overwhelm is actually NOT all the to do’s, it’s the little “me time” that moms have.  My solution for moms who feel really overwhelmed is to take a break, re-group, and have some quality “me time”.  Me time may include getting a massage or pedicure, having luch with a girlfriend, or having a few hours to herself doing things she enjoyed doing prior to having children.  Once mom feels recharged, her overwhelm will decrease and she’ll have more energy to take on the demands of being mom.  You deserve it, go ahead and schedule some “me time”!
