Eat Well to Manage Post Partum Blues - sharadi 

Sometimes it is a lot less stressful to manage on your own since you don’t have to worry about other factors such as your mom’s health when here, the excessive work load on her etc. For the first month postpartum you mainly need a lot of sleep and healthy non-spicy food. you could make a few daals and bland veggies a few days prior to your due date and stock them up. you could also buy/ make some ladoos and sweets with nuts that are handy so you can munch on them between meals. 

Get your husband to do the basic chores. Don’t stress out if things don’t get done the way you want them or if the house is messy. It’ ok. Your health takes priority over everything else.

Join prenatal classes to get tips on managing with your baby alone. you could also get nannies or doulas to help during childbirth and during the first few weeks .

Plus always remember it’s a temporary phase and you’ll go back to India soon

Thought for the day!

In the modern world of business, it is useless to be a creative original thinker unless you can also sell what you create.

Management cannot be expected to recognize a good idea unless it is presented to them by a good salesman.


-David M. Ogilvy

Your Fortune For Today
Thursday, October 02nd, 2014

Today you could find yourself brainstorming a way to put your inventiveness and ingenuity to work so that you can advance your career by leaps and bounds and increase your income. You could also become involved in artistic projects of some kind. Don’t be surprised if great ideas come to you with little effort. You’re very intuitive today, so enjoy it.

Tap into the electrifying energy of the day that encourages social interactions and activities. You’ll find that there’s a great deal of oxygen to keep your internal fire raging. Take the lead and others will follow willingly. Chords may be struck within you today that will resonate with larger plans you’ve been secretly brewing in the back of your mind for some time now.

You have become quite a wanderer today! Even while working, your mind will roam from one thing to another. It’s best to focus your energy on important issues and try to work harder since it could improve your life. Stimulate your mind and feel free to join a class if your instinct is pointing in that direction. Keep a positive attitude and an unbiased mind if you really want to move forward.

Change your lifestyle if you want to get immediate relief from your prolonged tension and strains of life. Put on your track pants and go for a jog or a brisk walk. Make exercise a part of your daily routine and remember to keep smiling as it will go a long way in keeping you healthy.

You may get caught up in a tug of war between your friends and family since both will demand your attention. Try and maintain your cool and make decisions based on practicality and sound reasoning. Also, try to handle both parties with tact so that neither end up feeling hurt. Just remember to keep your priorities straight.

This can be a powerful and stressful day for you. Some things you have wanted may be falling away. Apparent breakdowns could actually bring the seeds of important new growth in your life. Don’t hesitate to ask for help. Talk to people. You will find friends in unusual places.

You need to be surrounded and encouraged by people who believe in you and it’s good for you have people around to support you. Listen to what they have to say. It’s for your own good.

Have you planned a holiday? This is a wonderful time to get away with people you enjoy most. It’s also a lucky day for dating. Don’t be afraid to reach out and meet someone new. Any social occasion or gathering of friends can bring a fresh perspective.

This could be a very busy day and you will be wise to work from a list. You can be a wonderful influence on children and might want to make this a special time for them. Calls to people who are introverted can make a huge difference in their lives.
