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

Who's the Boss?

A man goes into a pet shop to buy a parrot. The shop owner points to three identical looking parrots on a perch and says:

"The parrot to the left costs 500 dollars".

"Why does the parrot cost so much?" the customer asks.

The owner says, "Well, it knows how to use a computer."

The customer asks about the next parrot and is told "That one costs 1,000 dollars because it can do everything the other parrot can do plus it knows how to continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Saturday, October 25th, 2014

This is a positive day to take action. You may not like being told what to do. It’s possible to work successfully with irritating people. You have an opportunity to be very honest about your feelings. This can help you move on from any situation that haunts your thoughts.

You are likely to be in the public eye today. It can be easy to make a good impression and get what you want without too much delay or opposition. This is a day when you may be feeling particularly generous about money. Be cautious about overextending or buying on credit.

Like playing a game of chess, you may need to think through your next move carefully. It could be that your opponent is taking a long time to make the next move and you’re impatient. As a result, you may make your decision too hastily. Feel free to take as much time as you need. Your opponent may be thinking two or three moves ahead of you already, so concentrate.

Are you eating a good breakfast? Are you adding greens and extra fruit to your diet? Do you take care of your teeth? Simple changes to your daily diet can make a huge long-term improvement in your health. Resolve today to make one big change to your usual habits.

Today brings opportunities to break free and do things differently. Some may be inspired to play tricks on others. Anything that distracts you from harsh realities can be a relief. Listen to the advice of good friends. It is risky to gamble. Do your best to keep your commitments and be on time.

Today you might work on an artistic project of some kind. You’ll put in a lot of effort, yet the results may not turn out to be exactly what you wanted. This could result in many revisions. Eventually, you’re going to have to stop. It’s possible to revise and correct too much. Whatever you’re working on, try to remain objective and not get too caught up in unrealistic expectations.

The energy today could bring highly charged feelings to the surface. More than usual, you can be hurt by the words and actions of others. No one may guess, because you prefer not to show negative reactions. Stay calm and simply do the best you can with ordinary things.

Romance and marriage are very much on your mind today. A special encounter with a possible love partner could have you hankering for happily ever after. Books on attracting and maintaining relationships might be especially appealing as well as useful. Take care not to put too much stock in detailed analyses, however. Remember that such books are based on generalities. You’re unique.

This is a day for fun, drama, and celebration. Even if you have a long list of responsibilities, be open to making life more colourful and enjoyable. You may startle your family with what seems like a sudden or unexpected move. Investigate thoroughly any proposed purchase or major change.
