Ah hello yoga mat 🙏🏼. baby finally went to sleep somewhere other than on me, so i took the chance to roll out my mat and pull out some props. i’m working on three things at the moment:
c o n n e c t i o n: finding the connection between my breath, movement, and pelvic floor, to help heal my diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles) and gently strengthen my core. this is easier said than done at the moment but focusing on contralateral movement (opposite arm and leg) is helping.
f o c u s: this is related to the first one as it is taking all my concentration to find that connection. but it’s also to do with being able to focus my mind in meditation. it’s hard to stop feeling rushed (because baby might wake up any minute) and to calm my swirling mummy-brain. so i’m starting with ten slow deep breaths at a time.
r e l e a s e: i’m carrying tension in my shoulders and back (and jaw), and there’s stiffness in my quads, hamstrings and calves. so i’m working on letting go and releasing, including using my trusty spiky balls to ease out the knots in my back and to reawaken the soles of my feet and palms of my hands. #postnatalyoga#5monthspostpartum#diastasisrecti#pelvicfloor#connection#focus#release#meditation#yogamum#whilebabysleeps#tendeepbreaths#breathe#yogaprops#myyogalife#peachyoga#mummymind#mummybrain#stillthemind#spikyball#postpartumrecovery#yogamat

Lunching in the car so the little guy can nap longer 😂 enjoying listening to throw back thursday on @nova937
lucky for me i still had some of this vegetable slice in the fridge from the weekends meal prep. being prepared with lunches and dinners for the week ahead really has been a lifesaver lately. patting myself on the back right now.
She’s not too pretentious. a good coffee in the morning a bright and breezy chat here and there and some old school humor will serve her needs. she’s wendy, the secretary 👩🏽💻 @woolywonderscrochet #crochet#crochetaddict#crochetaddiction#mycrochet#crochetedbear#crochetbear #ilovecrochet#ilovecrocheting#crocheteveryday#creativemother#creativemotherhood#whilebabysleeps#typewriter#valentinetypewriter#oldschool#woolywonderscrochet
