Product Description

Product Description

For New Mums: How to Look Good, Stay Sane and Live an Enriched Life is a candid look at being a mum and knowing how to navigate the waters of motherhood. Your first realization is likely to be that life, as you once knew it, has changed forever. Your children become not just your priority, in many cases they become your obsession! Everything revolves around them and mum becomes a second or third priority in her own life. This guide reveals a practical plan for staying in shape, coping with the stress of being a mum, and how to effectively parent your child. For New Mums is a concise but definitive book on doing what makes sense for you as well as your baby or toddler.

The first, most obvious conclusion you will draw is that this book was written by a woman/mum who’s been in the trenches of motherhood…and survived! Rucha Dixit’s advice is not only mum centred, but opens the door to areas most mums overlook such as:

1. How we can learn from our children—they don’t come into the world with a need to control;
2. To keep our heads free, we have to have time for ourselves--mums can’t parent effectively if they’re tired, sleep deprived and live on a diet of fast food and crisps;
3. Prayer and meditation are lifelines to your sanity—acknowledge the issue, exhale and let it go. The world won’t stop if you take time to get centred—you have a life, live it.

For New Mums: How to Look Good, Stay Sane and Live an Enriched Life is the ultimate book on being a mum and its message is clear: by living a balanced, fulfilled life, you’ll be able to teach your children to do the same. Get your copy today and secure this precious gem as a treasure to pass on to your children when they become parents—they will love you for it!

What an insight in to life after child birth!!!! I really would like to start off by appreciating Rucha to have taken time off her busy schedule and 2 young kids and put down her thoughts and reflection of her life and also wanting to share her experiences with all those new mums out there.. Kudos to that!!!!

Now coming on to the book itself.. i think its really honest from page 1 clearly reflecting what was Rucha's intent when she would have started off.. it slowly gets on to being quite inspiring when she talks about losing weight, how to feel good about yourself when you are low , tips about meditation which I have decided to take it very seriously and also all those nice little tips about being not only happy with your kids but also with your partner .. i think often we don't realise that we are doing a great job as a working mum but jsut need a bit of pat on the back or a hug to be reassured that all is well.. this book certainly makes you feel quite happy, content and positive about the whole motherhood experience!!

If i do have to say something less positive it has to be the fact that the book needs to be longer enough!! I would have loved to read another few hundred pages.. more tips on meditation and dieting tips which I hope Rucha would do it in the next book!!!

Good luck and keep writing!! You are doing a great job!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging Advice for New Moms 14 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Any new mom knows that being a mom is exhausting, and there's very little time for yourself. For New Mums is a book full of good advice to help moms preserve their sanity and take care of themselves. Topics include, Putting Things Into Perspective, How to Shape Up and Look Good, Preserving Your Sanity, and Learning from Children. A list of inspirational books and articles is included at the end.

For New Mums is an easy, enjoyable read. The author's style is personal, making it feel like you're sitting down with her, enjoying a cup of coffee, listening to her tips. There are quite a few useful ones, like drinking warm water after a meal to help your body break down and digest fat easily, and tips to divert tantrums for kids under six. There's also a lot of emphasis on setting goals and committing to them.

For New Mums is a very good book which offers encouragement and tips for moms struggling with the job of raising young kids.

4.0 out of 5 stars stays slim and super hot, does great at her job 18 Aug 2014
By dg
I bought this book as a gift for my friend who's a new mum and is struggling a bit. I know Rucha personally and have always admired how well she balances all aspects of her life, stays slim and super hot, does great at her job, always finds time to hangout with friends and she has 2 lovely little one she cares for. When she wrote a book I was really really curious to know all her secrets, so my friend gets a pre read book :D. The best part about the book is that is so frank, genuine and 100% authentic. Her conversation style made for an engaging read, the book comes from the her spiritual and genuinely nice side. There are many spiritual and practical tips in the book, which I know for sure work as they have worked for her. I also like that there are loads of pointers in her book which lead can lead us into various directions to make a really make us life richer. Not to mention my friend too loves the book .

5.0 out of 5 stars straight from heart and easy to follow 4 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I generally start a book and by the midway loose the interest to complete it. But this book seems like its my story and the challenges I faced being a new mom. Very well explained with examples and easy to apply solutions to problems.

Looking forward for more to come so I can know what meditation techniques and what yoga can be better and quick for new mums

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring! 12 Aug 2014
By Kavitha
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Some books tend to overload the reader with immense advice, but this one is different in a way that it just shares the author's personal experience and how she copes with it.
Being a month-old mom, I could already associate myself to the book in many ways. The book has given me a positive outlook to plan things and manage them diligently rather than spending time brooding over them. Amongst the many moms I see who accept things as they are, the author differs in how she realizes her goals through sheer commitment and hard work. Inspiring!
Rucha scores in her first work with the reassurance she gives to every new mom. Well written and wonderful read!
