Let's hope it does the trick because this mama does cannot be sick! .

New moms have a lot to balance: learning an incredible important role, maintaining a healthy relationship with her partner, feeding schedules, sleeping schedules, and the often overlooked need for personal identity and space. .
As a new mom, I'm finding it difficult to maintain this balance.  Someone recently asked me what I like to do and a couldn't come up with an answer, not a single one.  That's when I knew I needed to strive for a little more balance in my life. I preach on here the importance of self love but realized I haven't been practicing what I preach.  I love being a mom but I feel like I've lost my own personal identity.  I've been diving into personal development and mediation to help me reignite my passions. .
Mom's, if you're experience this too... you are not alone!  It's tough to find balance that makes you fulfilled and happy, and not bogged down in the guilt that can come from doing something for yourself instead of giving every moment to your children.  I've had to remind myself that I am part of the glue that holds my family together and by taking some time each day for myself, I am making the glue of my family stronger.  If you're finding it hard to find your balance, I'm here for you!! As mommies have to stick together, Let's talk πŸ’•

Doing some Myofascial Release on my IT Band after Day✌️of Shift Shop!  My IT band has been bothering me lately so I'm rolling it out to release tension in connective tissue layer surrounding the joint. .
Technique:
1.) Position Yourself on your side lying on foam roll. 
2.) Bottom leg is raised slightly off floor.
3.) Roll just below hip joint down the outside thigh to the knee.
4.) If tender point is located, stop rolling and rest on tender point until pain decreases by 75%
NOTE: this may be painful for many, and should be done in moderation.
