If you’re a young mom, chances are you wouldn’t mind getting a few healthy tips for young mothers to keep you happy, healthy, and balanced, right?

Having a baby brings a host of changes to your life, along with added stress, even if it’s from a good source!

Along with gaining weight during pregnancy, crazy food cravings, and getting less sleep, now more than ever the chances are that you’re finding it hard to stay healthy, regardless that you’re happy.

I’ve got some simple, slim down steps, and plenty of healthy tips for young mothers if you believe you might need some help.

Try them out, and you’ll be happier and healthier in no time!2

1. Sneak in a Workout

One of the most important healthy tips for young mothers is to be sure you sneak in a good workout during your day.

I know it sounds impossible, but trust me, it is doable.

Think about doing it during nap times, after your baby goes to bed at night, or better yet, getting up early to do it before your baby wakes up.

This gives you time to yourself each day, keeps off weight gain, and helps reduce your stress.

It also helps you sleep better and gives you more energy throughout the entire day.

A combination of cardio and strength training is best, and a great way to increase your metabolism to get you back down to your pre-pregnancy weight.

2. Meal Prep

Prep meals for one week ahead.

Meal prep might seem like the last thing you have time for, but one day a week, preferably when someone can watch the baby for you for a few hours, take 2-3 hours and make some meals and snacks for the week.

This streamlines your whole week, and can also help you reach for healthy meals and snacks when things get a little stressful.

As an added bonus, you won’t have to spend hours at the stove each night cooking dinner.

If you want some healthy suggestions for how to do this, check out one of my favorite blogs, The Lean Green Bean, which features a Sunday Food Prep special edition each week.
