Mothers are the busiest people on earth. Some mothers have developed the notion that since they are mostly just at home and making breakfast and taking care of the kids, they do not need to mind their bodies. If you are one of the many mothers drowning in this wrong idea, then you should read on the many reasons why you should still look your best and stay fit and healthy, not just for yourself but for your children and husband as well.
Here are some of the many reasons why you should keep yourself healthy and fit especially now that you are a mother:
- Mothers are the best type of workers there are. They are on duty, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with very minimal sleep and very minimal chances of rest. All the things that a mother does, very much require physical strength. Hence, to be able to accomplish your tasks, like cook, do the laundry, feed the children, take the baby for a walk, and all other mother-duties, you have to make sure your body is able to deal with all the work.
- While you think your friends do not see you so it’s okay to look horrible, you should realize that your children see you. As a mother, you have to set a good example for your children by showing them that everyone should always be at their best no matter what. When you take care of your physique, your children will develop that attitude as well and they will also practice being healthy, fit, clean and presentable, all the time.
- You do not want to be a sickly mother because it will ultimately lead to sickly children because the diseases you could get because of a weak immune system will highly reflect in your children. At times, you might be the cause of their sickness because you become the source of the virus. As a mother, you are to keep an eye for the safety of your children, and not jeopardize it by having the disease yourself
- Being healthy despite the difficult task of motherhood will enable you to feel confident about yourself and your capability as a mother. This confidence will shine and your children will see that you are happy, hence they will be happy.
