5 ayurvedic tips for mothers

Every mother is different because her life situation is different. Some have just become mothers, others already have several children, and still others are single parents. Some are re-entering the workforce, while others have had to juggle family and career for some time. They all face different challenges. When we present 5 Ayurvedic tips for mothers in general, we have one basic thought that applies to all moms: If you as a mother are doing well, your child is usually doing well too. According to our European Ayurveda® motto "Life is Balance", the following tips should help you to take good care of yourself:

1. moms need me-time too

5 ayurvedic tips for mothers
Spend a lot of time in nature with your kids

Being a mother is only one part of your identity, even though it is of course a very essential aspect. Nevertheless, it is important that you allow yourself small time-outs. These are not only important for recharging your energies, but can also be used to pursue your own hobbies, meet with your closest circle of friends, or mentally nourish yourself. This can be an organizational challenge, and illnesses of children can quickly disrupt a plan. It's an advantage if you take your me-time seriously, so you don't run the risk of putting it off again and again. A tip: Talk to your partner or the people who are involved in the upbringing, and set up a plan together so that you can actively use these free hours for yourself.

2. spend time in nature

Especially with children, your home too often reminds you of housekeeping. In other words, there's still cooking to be done, the kids' rooms need to be tidied up, and the whole place is crying out for attention. Time for distance! And what could be better than going out into nature? For your kids, too, the forest or the park are a huge playground that you can explore together with them. Advantages? The kids can really let off steam, get fresh air in their lungs and connect with nature. You too! Because the power and beauty of trees, flowers and plants has a calming effect and immediately puts you in a good mood!

3. yoga for body & mind

Yoga helps you against stress and connects you with yourself

Yoga keeps you moving and in touch with yourself at the same time. Due to the many daily tasks, it can quickly happen that you are tense or stressed. In addition, yoga can do a lot to help you feel good in your own body. Depending on your individual situation, it is recommended to do some soothing yoga exercises as an evening ritual when the kids are already in bed. Check out our blog for the most popular yoga exercises. If it is possible for you, it is also a good idea to attend a yoga class on a regular basis.

4. pay attention to your diet

As a mother, you are very busy with the nutrition of your kids. Regular and freshly cooked meals as well as a good and healthy snack are always on the agenda. But you yourself also need the strength and energy of wholesome food. On the one hand, to be able to keep up with the irrepressible energy of your children. And on the other hand, so that your immune system is strengthened and you stay healthy. Tridosha cooking is very compatible with family life and also inspires your children to have a conscious and mindful attitude towards food. At the same time you can make sure that your doshas stay in balance. Check out another of our blogs or order our Ayurveda cookbook for delicious recipes.

5. selfcare with massages and beauty

Massages are good for you according to Ayurveda for several reasons. The regularity of touch promotes circulation, supports the purification process and generally has a very calming effect on the mind. An Abhyanga massage of five to ten minutes daily is already enough to feel the pleasant effect. You can comfortably massage yourself or you can celebrate this ritual as a couple, then both have something from it! Check out our online store for ayurvedic massage oils.

Regular beauty rituals also help you not to lose sight of yourself, are a gesture of self-love and thus also strengthen your self-confidence. This includes regular face masks, hair care and also the morning dental care.
