Audaciously nourish yourself

pregnancy_nourishPregnancy is a great excuse to finally take good care of yourself! For some of us, and in this day and age where we women wear many hats, this is long overdue. Pregnancy is an excellent opportunity to consider not only the traditional ways to nourish yourself – get rest, be active, eat well – but also what nourishes you emotionally and sparks your enthusiasm. These ways of nourishing yourself may include taking a pottery class, commiserating with members of an expectant mommy group, reading solely for pleasure, enjoying massages, accepting help from others, indulging in long baths – whatever you know refuels you, energizes you, and are activities that you enjoy most.

You want your child to take great care of herself, and you can be a role model of that from the moment of conception.

Look for yourself:  What are you willing to do for yourself to nourish yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually? What are you willing to ask others for?

And, the most important question is, “How can you nourish yourself regularly?” How can you make taking care of you a priority, every week? Even every day?

Here are some ideas how: Schedule regular massages. Keep an evening or a morning each week totally clear to do what you most want or need to do for yourself that week. Take time to reflect and sort through any concerns swimming in your head. Regularly attend classes or coaching sessions that fuel you.
