Your little bundle of joy has finally arrived! This is what you’ve spent the last several months (maybe even years!) waiting, praying and planning for. You expected to feel joy, overwhelming love and relief. Maybe, like me, you mistakenly thought you would strap your baby in a carrier and go on about your busy life. What you didn’t expect were the tears, bone-crushing exhaustion, constant worry or intrusive scary thoughts that can come with postpartum depression and anxiety.
Why am I posting a breakfast recipe on a mental health blog? Well, these are a total sanity saver for busy mornings, that’s why! Your mental health (and taste buds) will thank me.
Social media has forever changed the way we interact with others, making it easy to stay connected. But it’s not always good for us.
Do you ever have days when you just feel STRESSED out, like you are at your breaking point?
Most of us feel that way from time to time! You may notice tension in your neck, clenched jaw, racing heart rate or sweaty palms. You feel this way because your adrenal glands are pumping you full of stress hormones and sending a message to your brain that you are not safe.
We need friendships and community, but often struggle to make friends or have time for the ones we have.
My heart goes out to all of the moms out there getting ready for the first day of kindergarten.
