Your Pregnancy Journey

Staying healthy and fit in your pregnancy journey is one of the most vital elements for all the to be moms. Walking is one of the safest and easiest exercises to begin with and does not even need supervision. Ensure that you walk at a pace that you are comfortable with. Think about the Talk and Walk test. If you can talk without getting breathless but would still prefer to avoid talking then that is the right pace for you. Most moms will be comfortable with a 30-minute walk everyday.

Another exercise that you can safely start with is Deep breathing. It might seem odd that Deep breathing is considered to be an exercise but if done correctly it can actually tone the lungs and the abdominal muscles. It is a safe exercise and can be done even by women on bed rest. The best way to learn how to do deep breathing is to imagine that your body is a large deflated balloon. Now place one hand on your abdomen and the other on your chest. Slowly inhale, filling up your chest and then your abdomen till the maximum possible point. Now slowly exhale first allowing the air to exit the abdomen and then slowly deflate your lungs. Always breathe in and our through your nostrils and ensure that you do not hold your breath anywhere. It is recommended that you do this exercise at least once a day for 30-40 deep breaths. Also do the exercise in a non-air-conditioned environment as this will allow you to take in more fresh air and hence more oxygen.

When you begin your exercise program, you may feel lethargic and demotivated. Don’t quit. Once you have been exercising for a few days you will realize the immense benefits. Your body will feel energized and you will feel rejuvenated. And interestingly it will also help you to sleep better at night.
