“If you were experiencing anxiety before, it’s probably increased with the COVID-19 situation and new government advice. ⁣ ⁣・ It’s totally understandable and normal: the unknown and uncontrollable are scary! You’re not alone.⁣ ⁣・ These are some tips that may help you to reduce your anxiety in the coming weeks. They’re not a quick fix, in fact they’ll take a bit of practice, but you’ll be surprised how much better you feel when you start to take control again. ⁣ ⁣・ Firstly we categories our worries into Hypothetical and Practical. You’ll probably notice that MOST worries are hypothetical. ⁣ ・ We often get overwhelmed when we don’t act on our worries appropriately: What we’re supposed to do is "Take Action" on the Practical worries. Instead we start procrastinating, delaying and avoiding doing the things we really know we should. And then probably feel guilty too!⁣ When it comes to Hypothetical worries, rather than “letting them go” because they’re out of our control, we try to plan and control them as much as we can. We can obsess about them and their details.⁣ ⁣・ So now we can start to take steps to start managing them the RIGHT way: we take back control… And importantly, we give our worries some Boundaries - they may enter our brain for a second, we take note of them and then we get on with other stuff. We don’t let ourselves dwell on them. We compact the REAL worrying to our 20 minutes Worry Time. You may even start to find that 20 minutes is too much!⁣ ⁣・ ❓Do you have any other tips or tricks to control your worries? Deep breathing, relaxation tips, to-do lists, diarising things?“ ・ Today’s post is an insightful share by @drKimberley & just one great example of what you’ll discover on her page. Sending her a big thank you for joining our #parentingtogetherwins series and for all her efforts to support parents on Insta and the Kidbo app. ・ #kidbo #parenthood #newparents #newmum #newdad #familyfirst #2monthsold #1monthold #anxietyrelief #mummyandme #mumlife #mentalhealthmatters

Wenn ich frage, ob das Baby denn auf den Papa reagiert, höre ich meist, dass es dann sofort „still“ ist. Also hat Papa einfach eine beruhigende Wirkung, was den Mamas später einfach oft zu Gute kommt. Wie oft war ich froh, dass der Papa sie mal einfach genommen hatte, wenn ich selbst völlig am Ende, durch den permanenten Schlafentzug war, den mal gut, mal weniger gut wegsteckt. Als Eltern ist man immer ein Team, wenn auch das meiste einfach an der Mama hängen bleibt. Aber ich erinnere mich gerne zurück, in der man so viel im Team gemacht hat. Spazieren gehen, baden, kuscheln ... zusammen ist es einfacher. #team #momtobe #dadtobe #parenttobe #parenthood #pregnant #pregnancy #babybelly #babybellyshooting #babybumb #schwangerschaft #schwangerschaftsshooting #shootingliebe #vermissemeinenjob

Balance. The word has taken on a new meaning for all of us - and particularly for parents who are now faced with so much right now. This is just a reminder to all of our #nuiworld conscious parents that you can’t “do it all”, and in fact, now more than ever, you need to make an effort to allow yourself the space and grace to LET GO. Because that IS what sustainability is all about. It’s not just about #sustainablestyle - it’s about a SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE. And that means, now in this new period in our lives, to create new habits and routines that help you manage your your kids, your family, and most importantly your own #selfcare and sanity. If you haven’t read our recent blog post about Embracing Slow & Sustainable, we’ll put a link in our IG stories today with real tips you can implement in your own life. To get you started, the first tip is to define what is most important to you - family, activities, items, emotions. So we want to hear from our #nuiworld - what is most important to you? We love this sweet moment from @sweetpoppystudios in one of our Merino Silk tops that shows us the most important thing for all of us- our children. . . . #nuiorganics #siblings #siblinglove #thehappynow #documentyourdays #motherhood #childhoodunplugged #parenthood #thesearethedays #heymama #momentslikethese #shelterinplace #motherhoodrising #momentsinmotherhood #unconditionallove #capturedchildhood

It’s so hard to believe it has been a whole year since this picture was taken! One of my favorite third-trimester support tools was this beautiful rebozo from Mexico. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While many use a traditional Mexican rebozo for comfort measures during labor, I was definitely loving the snug support it is gave my growing belly! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The bigger I got, the more tired these abdominal muscles were. And while my velcroed under-belly band gave great support when I was at work, at home, I relied heavily on the all-over support from my rebozo. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you used a rebozo for pregnancy, labor, or postpartum support? #rebozo

🐣 Research has observed that parents/caregivers who are anxious tend to raise children who are also anxious. This is because anxiety can affect ones parenting style. Anxiety can influence parents to react to their child's environment in ways that inhibit them from experiencing failure or making mistakes and learning from the opportunity. This parenting style is often labeled as being over protective in fear of their child may become harmed in some way. These worries can result in: • Ineffective problem solving. • Undermining children's belief in their ability. • Reinforcing the child's perception of the world being a dangerous place regardless of experience. • Lead to avoidant coping strategies. Thus managing parental anxiety can contribute toward a parenting style that teaches children to learn how to handle the uncertainties of life and cope effectively. If your anxiety is becoming overwhelming to manage, seek your own support from family, friends, and professionals. Parental anxiety is ongoing as children develop through their stages into young adults. By helping yourself you will be helping your children. __________ (Information modified from Judy Reaven's, PhD. presentation on "Identification of Anxiety in Children and Adolescents", 2019 ) __________ #parenting #couplegoals #childrenmatter #personaljourney #child #selflove #selfcompassion #bekind #counselling #parenthood #love #support #life #parentproblems #happiness #family #familygoals #therapy #mentalhealth #healthylifestyle #anxiety #anxietyrelief #psychology #personalgrowth #play #mindfulness #mindfulparenting #infant #childcentered

Just keeping busy over here and having so much fun!! 🙌🏻 It is so hard for me to let go and let the messes take over. I’ve been trying so hard to focus on the fun and remember that the house can be cleaned later. Really trying to embrace this time with my kids and create fun memories. Let them play. Let them live. Let them get messy. Let them get dirty. Let them be free. Let them be. 💕💙

Anyone else feel like all those regular nighttime problems have become more extreme recently? 🙋🏽‍♀️• • Working, eating and sleeping in the same space is not natural and our bodies have no choice but to adjust. Our children’s circadian rhythms have been disrupted under the current circumstance with increased screen time and decreased movement. Maintaining a bedtime routine is as vital now as ever. This is stressful• • As adults struggling with creating routines in this new normal, it is important to recognize bedtime as a challenge for kids as well. By discussing solutions with your child, you are acknowledging this novel and difficult experience while providing structure. Everyone feels heard, a win-win!• • These are some sleep concerns parents have shared with me. While children with ASD and ADHD are naturally more susceptible to sleep disturbances, these scenarios seem relevant in every household right now• • DM me for other sleep routine ideas. With more tools in your toolbox, you will gain some control over the uncontrollable✨ #socialemotionallearning #specialneeds #specialed #specialeducation #autismawareness #autism #autismo #autismspeaks #autismmom #parenting #parenthood #parent #parents #anxiety #anxietyrelief #adhd #adhdparenting #child #children #kid #kids #advice #tip #tips #psychology #asd #sel #socialskills #executivefunction #behavioralhealth

March 28th 2020. We went in for our scheduled c-section early Saturday morning. Based on hospital policy even before this pandemic, only one person could accompany our surrogate in the operating room. We all decided it would be Alec because Paul would probably pass out if he saw blood! At 9:07 am, our son Simon was born weighing 5lbs 8oz and 18.25 inches in length. 2 minutes later at 9:09 am, our son Philip was born weighing a chunky 6 lbs 8oz and 20 inches in length. We were discharged yesterday around 3pm so we were only in the hospital for about 30 hours which is awesome. One thing that drastically changed our journey because of this pandemic was the fact that no one could come see us or the babies, including our surrogate. Even though we understood it is for our safety, it was a huge disappointment for us not to be able to introduce our sons to our surrogate directly. But things will soon clear and because we all live close to each other, our surrogate will absolutely see them and always be a part of our lives! She is recovering well from the c-section and should be discharged from the hospital soon. As for us, we are tired and humbled with our new responsibilities as parents but are so in love and wouldn’t have it any other way! #hubbinout #surrogacy #surrogacyjourney #twodads #lgbt #lgbtq #pride #loveislove #love #husbands #lovewins #husbandandhusband #IVF #surrogate #twins #twinboys #thirdtrimester #38weekspregnant #parenthood

I don’t know if it’s just the fact that we’re coming up on Selah’s 6-month birthday or that I’m finally feeling like I found my groove. Or maybe it’s the state of everything going on that I’ve found I want to hold my daughter closer than close, but I’ve found myself missing my bump. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ll be honest, I had a hard pregnancy. I was high-risk due to my autoimmune disorder and previous losses. I was a wreck mentally about the what-ifs that could happen. I was HUGE and gained over 70 pounds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But there’s something about watching the baby you created in your womb grow on the outside. She’s getting more and more independent and while I’m happy to see she’s hitting milestones and sleeping more, there’s something about her not needing me as much that makes me tear up a few times a week. I miss those little kicks that let me know she was in there growing. And I miss her getting hiccups and seeing my belly move in rhythm. I miss getting to hear her heartbeat and know that my own was a comfort to her. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To all the mamas pregnant and about to give birth... my heart is with you as you navigate this new season, especially in this difficult season of our world. As hard as it might be, try to enjoy these moments growing your babe. Just know that there are mamas out there rooting for you. Myself included.

I love this kid. What’s something funny your toddler has said lately? I wanna keep laughing ☺️🖤
