Relaxation during pregnancy

Ideas for relaxation during pregnancy

If you enter the keywords "relaxation" and "pregnancy" into a search engine, you will quickly come up with yoga or meditation tips. And even though these two relaxation methods can be a wonderful source of peace and relaxation, there are plenty of other ways you can count on to stay calm during your pregnancy. Below we have some ideas for you on how you can relax reliably, far away from yoga and the like.

Movement & Hearing

Fresh air is healthy, and this also applies to pregnancy. That's why you should make sure you get regular exercise, unless your doctor prescribes otherwise. Go for a little walk outside every day. This will not only boost your circulation and improve your mobility, but will also strengthen your back and possibly relieve back pain. To make your physical activity a little more varied, just listen to a podcast. Either you look for an interesting mommy podcast or one on a completely different topic. Audiobooks are also a great way to keep yourself busy while running. But don't forget to listen to nature sometimes.

Gratitude Journal

Humans are creatures who like to improve and optimize themselves. Conversely, this often means that we often don't think about how grateful we can be. That's why a gratitude journal is a perfect way to take time to calm down and appreciate the beauty of life. For example, write down at the end of each day what you are grateful for. Even if you haven't had a great day, it is important to find fulfillment in even the smallest things. This sharpens your focus on what is important and clears the way for contentment and serenity.

Pampering through massage

So far, the tips have been very proactive. But you can also relax by letting yourself be pampered. How about a relaxing neck or shoulder massage from your partner, for example? This time spent together strengthens your bond and provides a moment of relaxation. During pregnancy in particular, the body has to withstand great tension, so massages can work wonders.

Caution: However, caution is advised when massaging other areas! Strong massages in the pelvic or abdominal area should be avoided, especially towards the end of the pregnancy, to prevent premature contractions. Leg massages, massages in the sacrum-pelvic area or the use of certain aromatic oils should also be avoided.

If you are not sure, you can pamper yourself with gentle caresses and, if in doubt, ask your gynecologist or midwife.

Avoid stress & accept help

Physical and mental stress is not just an issue during pregnancy. But since you are responsible for two beings - yourself and your baby - it is all the more important that you recognize stress factors and consciously counteract them. The same applies to things that are physically difficult to manage. Listen to yourself and try to honestly assess whether the situation or task is too difficult for you in your current state or not; this becomes increasingly likely towards the end of the pregnancy. Don't be afraid to ask for help from your partner, friends or relatives. They will definitely be happy to help you.
