15Stop The Information Overload
As a new mom, it’s extremely important to learn to be critical of what sources you put your trust in.
We consume so much information on a daily basis, but when we really sit back and think about it, a lot of this information is not necessary or essential to our lives. According to Mother.ly, we don’t need all the information that we seek every day.
This will allow you to reduce the chaos in your brain and focus on what is truly important and necessary. Sometimes it just feels like there are a million things going on and a million people trying to get your attention all at the same time.
While you may not be able to cut out all the noise, turning the news off during dinner, or not checking your social media accounts as much will really help you de-stress. Having a new baby at home is overwhelming enough and there are a lot of things that new moms still need to learn. However, don’t feel bad if you need to isolate yourself off from society for a little bit. Oftentimes, people who don’t watch the news or television, in general, seem to get judged. There is something to be said about being educated and informed on our current events. But, new mommies totally get a pass. So, don’t stress about it if you just want to keep the information out for a little while.
