5 Things I Do to Avoid Anxiety While Pregnant

Let’s be clear about anxiety.

We cannot control everything what we feel during pregnancy due to the hormonal changes. It’s normal feeling many thing, so don’t feel overwhelmed.

One of the most important causes of anxiety are hormonal changes while pregnant because they change the chemicals in our brain, so we can feel more anxious about the process.

Still, we can do some daily activities to control your thoughts. Here we have them!

Stay hydrated

Hydration is important for our body function.

Our body loses a lot of water while doing daily activities, so we need to drink water during the day and keep our water levels in the right place.

Also, water helps our baby to get the correct amount of amniotic fluid in the uterus. So, it’s a win-win!

how to stay hydrated while pregnant

  • Drink more milk (I drink calcium-fortified Almond milk)
  • Make your favorite juice
  • Have soup for dinner since it will warm your body and help you to stay hydrated
  • Eat more watery fruits (watermelons or cucumbers)

Eat more veggies and fruit

Vegetables and fruits are great types of food because they provide a lot of vitamins. Just like water, they help our body to work properly.

my favorite veggies and fruits

  • Broccoli

Move your body

Giving your body the chance to work on something will help your brain to stay healthy. Our brain and body are connected, so we need to move it.

activities that you can do to move your body:

  • Going for a walk
  • Taking an online yoga class
  • Working out for 20 minutes
  • Playing with your pet outside

Keep my mind focus on different activities

Anxiety can also be produced because of overthinking. If we don’t do anything to distract ourselves, we be thinking about everything that’s related to our pregnancy.

And it’s great! We have to think about our baby, but don’t do it till you start having negative thoughts.

some ideas to distract yourself:

  • Practice your favorite hobby
  • Cook a delicious meal
  • Stay outside to get fresh air
  • Watch your favorite TV program
  • Do some exercises

Always remember that negative thoughts don’t have room in our mind.

Journal your thoughts

Usually, I write my thoughts on my journal because it’s a great therapy, not only for avoiding your anxiety, but also for knowing yourself a bit better.

Our mind and thoughts vary greatly from the moment we get pregnant due to hormones. Therefore, we can also change our perspective of life and journaling will help to know that new part.

Try some of these journaling prompts for self discovery if you need to.
