Hey MAMA - are you feeling the post Christmas frazzle? Are you feeling the January Blues? Do your New Year's Resolutions need a reboot already?
Dang it all we say! It's time for a MAMA reset and to give your mind and body a little loving. Throw away all the pressures of a New Year New You (we love the old you) and take some time to simply be.....you!
Burble Baby is teaming up with some amazing MAMA brands in January to bring you a NEW competition and a whole host of treats to calm your body and mind allowing you to luxuriate in your own beautiful uniqueness. Check out what we're offering below, throw in a few simple moments to do what you love and enjoy just for you, and we're sure you'll be chasing away those January Blues in no time!
Positive affirmations are a wonderful way to truly believe in yourself. They release you from negativity, anxiety, guilt, fear and pain. They are simple messages that when repeated begin to worm their way into your mind. These positive affirmations might begin as wishful thinking, but soon become the reality of your life. Do you have a mantra that you believe in? At Burble Baby we have a whole range of merch designed to empower your belief in yourself. Look out for our You Got This Pin in our competition and free with all orders over £50. In the meantime, we love these empowering affirmations - which one would you choose?
A Good Cuppa can solve many a problem or woe or just give you 5 minutes to sit still and relax. It's true! Put the kettle on and introduce yourself to Hot Tea Mama, a gorgeous range of pregnany and breastfeeding teas for new mothers and motherhood. Designed to support women in each stage of pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and motherhood, these delicious teas are whole leaf herbal blends in biodegradeable pyramids. Soon to be stocked at Burble Baby, our favourite is the Night Owl Tea, a calming blend to aid sleep and to help soothe breastfeeding mothers in the wee hours. A welcome addition to our competition bundle for the lucky winner and a saviour for the sleep deprived! Speaking of which...
A Good Night's Sleep is hard to find if you're a mama, whether this be in those first few months of no sleep at all, through the disturbed nights caused by monsters in wardrobes, or little feet digging in your back when you're least expecting it! Then, when you do get an early night, guess what, you're too restless to sleep! Arrgh!Cue the fabulous Spacemasks Warming Eye-Mask!
Spacemasks are the game-changing eye masks designed to help you drift off. Quite different from an aeroplane eye mask, these jasmine-scented iterations heat up on contact with air and block out light for a peaceful night’s sleep. Sound good? Just pop on your eyes when you have a spare 15 mins or before you go to bed and we can guarantee pure relaxation and a beautiful night's sleep (little monsters dependant!). They are so good these spacemasks sold out over Christmas but we have new stock arriving very soon and thankfully, a box will be included in our Mama Reset bundle of goodies! Bliss, just what you need to reset! (PS - why not try one of our relaxing candles at the same time for a pure heavenly 15 minutes?)
Delicious and nutritious treats are a paradox, are they not? But who says you can't have both? Not when you have the yummy, tasty, nourishing goodies straight from Truffle Pigs Kitchen! Their cookie mixes are designed to boost milk supply and allow mothers a tasty wholesome treat, giving them a 'pick me up' and improving their breast feeding journey with their baby. New for January is their Chocolate, Date & Almond Brownie Mix. Simply add a few store cupboard ingredients to their mix and you can bake your own goodies in less than half an hour! Hmmmm. Go well with that cuppa! The perfect treat we say, whether it's January or otherwise.
A good surge of endorphins will help in boosting your mood whenever you feel a bit low, stressed out or out of sorts. When you exercise your body releases endorphins which trigger a positive feeling in your body and mind. You don't need to be a fitness junky to get an endorphin hit. Why not go for a good run and play around the park with your little one or try walking the school run instead of driving, to get the blood pumping. Look out for local post natal exercise classes you can take your baby to as well if you feel you need some structure or are looking to meet up with other mums - Sweaty Mama is one of our favourites and there are plenty of local yoga, swimming, sling swing classes around the country too - why not check your local Mumsnet forum for details.
What else do you like to do to relax, to reset and recharge? At Burble Baby HQ we love to eschew the digital devices and take 5 mins before bed for a good read, and we like to start the day off with a swim after the school run - good for the body and the mind! Let us know your tips in the comments below. Remember Mama, You Got This!
