Pregnancy can be a great opportunity to take your time. Try to avoid over-scheduling and block off some time for yourself. Your body will appreciate it and your baby (whether inside or outside) can sense your anxiety, so will also be grateful.
It Takes as Long As It Takes.
If you’re hit with a less than desirable change, see if you can give yourself a moment to experience whatever you may be feeling due to the adjustment. Sit. Breathe. Then try to let it go.
Get a good night’s sleep.
If you make a habit of taking naps during pregnancy, you’ll most likely carry that forward after your baby is born.
Let your practice adapt with your baby.
Your mindfulness practice will inevitably change when your baby arrives, just as it has likely changed through your pregnancy. It might be a while before you can get back to your old routine, but taking time to do bits of practice every day can make a huge difference in your energy level, your patience, and your ability to engage with your little one and others positively and mindfully.
