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

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.

Your emotions could be a bit vulnerable today and it may be hard to find shelter from the storm. Your umbrella is a bit too drafty and water seems to be leaking in from the top. Comfort yourself by centering and enjoying a quiet evening at home. Don’t let other people’s unsolved problems infect your space. Differentiate between issues that concern you and those that are out of your control.

You may have been looking forward to a social event, group activity, or perhaps a get-together with a lover today, but circumstances beyond your control throw some unexpected obstacles in your way. Don’t panic. If you’re focused and objective, you can find a way to get around the obstacles and do what you want to do. If you’re involved in creative projects, you might seem blocked today. This should pass by tomorrow.

Travel could be on your mind. You’re probably excited about a forthcoming vacation. You might need to finalize some arrangements today but find it difficult to reach people you need to speak to. This is frustrating but it shouldn’t lessen your enthusiasm. Keep trying. You’ll eventually reach the appropriate person and finish whatever you’re trying to accomplish. Hang in there.

Paperwork involving money could be a real drag for you today. It will be important to get it done but you will want to just leave it and go elsewhere. Try to channel your energy into getting the work done quickly rather than thinking of bailing. After a morning of intense, tedious work, you’ll probably be ready for some entertainment like a movie or sports event. Have fun!

Explore deeply your innovative, irrational side today. Your emotions may run counter to this principle, but instead of letting this put a damper on your progress, use the energy to spur you to action. Take advantage of the new gadgets and technology available to you. Incredible resources lie at your fingertips. Don’t be afraid to harness their power to your advantage.

This is a day when you should dust off your dreams. Do you have a secret wish or plan you’ve wanted to achieve for a long time? Now is the time to put it in some specific written form. You can achieve what you can imagine and work toward.

The one you love may send mixed messages. Don’t panic. Set a good example. Be an island of peace and kindness. There is no gain in allowing injured feelings to get the best of you. Friends can be especially supportive. Do not neglect little details in any plan or project.

The economy could well take a small dip, and you might hear from people expressing concerns about financial matters. Don’t take them to heart, and certainly don’t worry about your own financial condition. The trend will probably reverse itself soon, and this time in the right direction. Take no drastic action just yet. Wait and see what happens. You’ll probably breathe a sigh of relief.
