Being in a romantic relationship is a great thing, but if it’s not done consciously, a person can end up
caring so much about the relationship in the expense of their personal needs and desires.
This mostly happens to women, when they get children and all they do is make sure that the kids and
her husband are happy neglecting her own happiness.
There are societal expectations that a mother is the builder of the home. She needs to be there, and
work hard to see that her family stays intact. Yes God has blessed us so much and gave us the energy to
do all that. But even as we pursue that, we also need help, we need encouragement and we definitely
need some time for ourselves.
Women in such scenarios mainly neglect their bodies and spirits and they end up being over weight, and
they wake up one daily and Voila! the sexy, feminine woman in them is lost.
So we should be very cautious when it comes to family, below are some suggestions of activities that
one can do to find herself;
Creating me time- this is a time dedicated to reading something that builds you, like a chapter of a self-
help manual, journaling, by journaling one will get to know herself better, and meditate.
Exercise- home work outs are the best for someone who has a tight schedule, thank God for YouTube
because it has lots of home workout videos, choose the one that suits you, go to the gym if you can, and
also do some kegel exercises to keep your pelvic floor muscles strengthen mainly after child birth.
Go out often- you are so used to being with kids and hubby, so you can go out with your girlfriend/s and
catch up on happenings which exclude your family matters.
Reclaim your sexiness- do this by wearing fitting clothes, do manicure and pedicure, buy a nice perfume,
this will definitely make you shine and happier even as you became a great mother and wife.
The bottom line is this, love yourself first because that the only way you can love others.
