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

Your Fortune For Today
Friday, August 29th, 2014

This is a fantastic day to be as active as possible. The more enthusiastic, creative, romantic, and even wild you are, the better. Plan tricks to play on friends, go out dancing, or do anything you most enjoy that generates excitement and passion. Be ready to accept any physical challenges.

You may not want to openly admit something to someone today, even though you know it’s true. You’re more than likely working to hide behind a barrier that has formed between you and a close loved one or family member. If you insist on behaving this way, you may want to consider why you even bother staying in the relationship in the first place.

Oppressive stress on you or those close to you could cause disconcerting upsets within your relationships today. Try to be objective and work things out rationally instead of going to pieces. Avoid being sucked into quarrels where you might say things you’ll regret. Don’t let this temporary situation get the best of you. Make the effort to stay focused and relaxed. Tomorrow all should be back to normal.

Try not to be smothering today. You may want to seek comfort in the company of others but find that this only produces grouchiness on the part of all involved. Curb your tendency to find fault in loved ones. Your best bet is to focus your energy on tasks you’ve had on the back burner for some time. Tackle projects that need special attention and the most discipline.

At first, events today may not seem so lucky. But if you persevere with a positive attitude, doors will open and people will be supportive. Stay in close touch with those you like best. This is a great day to get as many little chores out of the way as possible.

Things seem to be going quite well for you in many respects. Your thinking is clear, your emotions are under control, and the puzzle pieces are fitting into place. This is your time to take advantage of these pockets of good fortune and turn them into something huge. You have the power to make anything happen – especially now.

It’s a day to be brave. State your opinions even if you think they’re different or unpopular. Wear the clothes you like and stop putting yourself down compared to others. A self-confident attitude will attract people who share your interests and sincerely admire what you do.

Although you might find the day ahead somewhat stressful, it’s a key day in your professional evolution. Since you’ve lacked inspiration lately, you must not miss the opportunity you’ll be presented with today. You could find out about an internship in a new field, which may lead to a new passion or commitment. Expect to see a new wish for the future forming within you!

This day calls for a lot of emotional strength from you since some very old deep-seated feeling may emerge. You may find it difficult to cope with them. Try to avoid any situation that can cause you to erupt since you may utter painful words that you will surely regret later.
