3 Tips On Keeping Things Organized In Your Home And Your Heart.

Being a mom is a balancing act of who you were before kids and the mountain of overnight tasks that come home when baby does. It's information overload, and many of us freeze under the pressure.

But if you're like me, nothing beats the overwhelm like a rock solid plan. Just a few intention tweaks to your week can increase energy and create a mountain of joy in your life.

1. Designate one day a week to get organized. Try Sunday afternoon for grocery shopping and meal planning. Having one non-negotiable day built into your schedule will allow you to feel calm knowing things WILL get done.

2. Use a digital calendar like the Cozi app. Sometimes we forget to inform our partners of important dates or tasks. Using a digital platform that's shared helps keep the lines of communication open. Rest, Rest, Rest! Napping often will accelerate the healing process as our body heals during sleep. Listen to your body and take breaks as needed. Enjoy the fresh air. Short, frequent walks around the house or to the end of your driveway can help increase circulation and increase digestion. Gently move your body. Very gentle exercises such as diaphragmatic breathing, heel slides, or ankle exercises can help increase circulation in the abdominal area and in your legs.

3. Invest in yourself and get support. Using the Mama's Got Goals Planner is truly a daily act of self-care. Spending just five minutes a day to plan out your goals with intention helps you create the life you want (don't five years just buzz on by?) Built for busy new moms, it's the ultimate roadmap to making a positive impact in their lives through goal setting. It's the perfect new mom gift!

I hope these tips were helpful for you! Remember when you show up for your goals, you show up for yourself and you show up for your life.

"Louis and Léa creates such wonderful boxes for new parents, and are great gift idea as well. All their products are so well thought out - they are good for baby and good for the environment."

"Being a new mom, I came to Manitoba knowing nobody. Since joining Louis and Léa's Raising Little Ones Facebook Group, I’ve met a few people I think I can call lifelong friends. When I don’t know what I’m doing and need some help, the first place I go to is this community to find what other mamas do with their kiddos. I also like being able to help other mamas with questions that I just went through as well! Plus, having the monthly box is a bonus gift to myself which as a mama, I don’t get often. Louis and Léa has changed my life in many ways."

"I got my March box today, on my due date!!!! It was the best surprise. And inside were the most perfect items. I was wanting to get another swaddle before we head to the hospital but came to terms with the fact that I'll likely have to wait, well... now I don't!! The gender neutral pattern and colour is perfect as we don't know what we are having. The brush and comb are so sweet too, they were also on my list of must gets and now I don't have to! The rosemary mint shampoo bar smells divine, I cannot wait to use it and help reduce postpartum and hair loss. Love, love, love, all these items and the adorable St. Patrick's Day photo prop that will be used for many years! Thank you for making this day so special."
