Your Mama 360° Lifestyle Guide
"Taking care of yourself isn't about trying to become perfect. It's about realizing and honoring, in every moment, that you already are."
- Vironika Tugaleva
The Pacific Northwest has kept us on the edge of our seats waiting for Summer to begin but with the kiddos out of school and all of this sunshine, we can't help but get excited. How are you getting ready for the hottest time of the year?
Many ads and posts will be reminding you to 'Get Fit' for swimsuit season but we at Mama 360° think there is a much better approach for feeling Happy & Healthy these next few months rather than putting yourself up against unrealistic and stress inducing expectations. Check out our Monthly Inspiration, Choosing Fabulous over Fit and learn how you can prepare for a summer that embraces the current phase of life.
Our guest speaker this month is Josie Ball, she has a list of credentials that is very impressive and she did not let us down. "Wow!", is all I can say after learning about all the natural approaches to ailments for both mama and baby. She talks about teething, mastitis, thrush, diaper rash and more. She also makes great recommendations for books and companies that sell products but the majority of the remedies are things that most of us already have in our pantry. You do not want to miss this one, PLUS, I have included her notes from the talk in the blog/video post so you can easily see the incredible information that is covered in this month's Guest Speaker Interview.
Melissa guides us on how to strengthen our core with some Mama Moves. She shares her Top 3 Core Exercises for both pregnant and postpartum mamas and includes a simple breakfast recipethat is quick and delicious. Finally, we encourage you mamas to stay hydrated! Choosing cooling foods with a high water content is a great way to stay ahead of the curve and bring balance to your body. Load up on the Celery, Melons, Citrus and Coconut products.
Bring in on Summer!
Love, Melissa & Tracy
