When we’re on the struggle bus - we often look for big, dramatic solutions to solve our problems.
I’ve been there too. When I was drowning in overwhelm and exhaustion I invested so much money in professionals, online programs and products that I thought would fix my problem in the quickest way possible.
Really though - what made the most difference was small, basic stuff that I needed to do on a daily basis.
When working on recovering from exhaustion and overwhelm in motherhood…I do NOT suggest starting here:
Investing in fancy and comprehensive labs tests or panels
Buying heaps of supplements
Starting to train for a marathon
Taking up a bootcamp class
Doing a dramatic diet overhaul
Going to the spa for a weekend but ignoring daily self care
Here’s where I DO suggest you start:
Go to bed 15 minutes earlier
Eat breakfast before coffee in the morning
Get three big and balanced meals in every day
Cook double of something and freeze it
Take a minute to breathe in the middle of your day
Go for a 10 minute walk after supper
Start with the simple things FIRST before jumping into the more “sexy” stuff.
Which one of those things stands out as something that you want to start working on?
Your dietitian doula
P.S. - Did you know that accountability increases the probability of completing a goal from 10% (with just having the idea) to 95% with having accountability specific to your goal?
