New mums are really good at giving themselves a hard time for not being perfect. This creates negative feeling which can sap your energy levels.
It's really important to be kind to yourself and make sure you do all you can to keep your spirits high with these top tips.
1. Create a tiny bit of 'me time' - reconnect with yourself and you'll feel calmer and stronger. So find one quick thing to do each day that helps you feel alive and energised. It might be playing your favourite song or calling a friend.
2. Delegate - you can't give 100% of your time and energy every day without getting exhausted so don't try and do everything yourself. Decide which tasks you could delegate and let your loved ones get involved with looking after the baby and house.
3. Get talking - if you're having a bad day or week then do talk to someone about how you're feeling. Just talking through a problem releases tension from the body and can often lead to unexpected solutions.

6. Take a quick walk outside - research shows that even a quick trip outside can lower blood pressure, boost the immune system and reduce stress and anxiety.
7. Restore your energy reserves - sleep when your baby sleeps and feed your body with food that restores your energy and doesn't take long to prepare such as fresh fruit.
8. Find others in the same boat - often the only people that really understand what you're experiencing as a new mum are other new mums. Meet up regularly and you'll soon find conversation goes beyond babies plus you'll pick up lots of helpful tips and ideas.
