3 Tips to Enhance Postpartum Mood 🤱🏻

Updated: Jul 30, 2019

I recently talked to a mama friend adjusting to life #postpartum & experiencing all the very valid emotions & transition that come along with it. In honor of our conversation I wanted to share with you 3 Tips to Enhance Postpartum Mood. (I’m convinced these keys promote positive mental health well beyond the immediate postpartum!)

1) Get outside daily!

Whether it’s on the back porch, a walk down the street, or a drive, getting out of your house daily can “reset” your emotional clock and help reduce #overwhelm. 2) Plan something you are looking forward to, whether big or small.

Looking forward to something you are excited about builds anticipation & releases helpful endorphins. Do this as often as needed, anticipating your favorite snack after you lie down for a quick nap, an ice cream date with your honey at the end of the day, or an outing that weekend. 3) Make a 5 min phone call or FaceTime with a friend or family member.

This has been clinically proven to reduce rates of #postpartumdepression & #postpartumanxiety with as little as 5 mins of positive personal interaction. It directly combats the feelings of isolation that can often accompany postpartum emotions.
