I'm thrilled to partner with The Motherhood and Johnson & Johnson to share more about the 7 Minute Wellness for Expecting and New Moms™ app. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Many things can take us by surprise when we enter the wonderful journey of motherhood. But one thing I completely underestimated (and I am now realizing after 5 kids), is how exhausting being a mother can sometimes be. It's certainly beautiful, but some days I just don't know where I am going to find the energy! 3 of my 5 kiddos are actually in school during the day, which leaves me at home to care for two littles. And, although they are pretty sweet kids and easygoing, it just feels like there's always something that needs to be done or that needs my attention. It's a rarity that I get to sit down sometimes. But what I do know is that the days are long but the years are short. I am just insanely amazed by how quickly the past 12 (almost 13) years have gone by since my oldest was born. What have we been doing all these years? It all just feels like a blur. Because I now know this, I am trying ever so intentionally, to enjoy the moments and embrace the chaos of my sweet babies. Lately, I've found myself turning to the new app - Johnson & Johnson 7 Minute Wellness For Expecting and New Moms™ - for some great ideas on how I can get a quick boost of energy by taking part in a fun activity.
