Exercise while going through pregnancy can certainly be quite tough, as your body is changing day by day, you are carrying another life with you, and you are going emotional changes as well. Depending on one’s stage, exercise should be very much monitored while pregnant, Moodzie believes that all women firstly, should go and consult with their doctor, and ask them whether exercise is suitable for them, and what types of exercise should they be doing. If the doctor approves, then women should certainly do some sort of exercise during pregnancy, as it can help them keep active and healthy, and also keeps them stable emotionally and mentally, as a lot of the times when the body moves it can also keep mood swings away and keep a person happier, as statistics prove those who remain active are a lot more mentally stable and happier.
Moodzie’s tip firstly, would be to exercise safely and avoid dangerous sports, basically no contact-based sports, no risky sports, also avoid water sports or those that require high elevation. Sports such as hiking, rock climbing, intensive swimming, rowing, contact-based sports should all be avoided, as during the phase of pregnancy women should aim for moderate exercise to keep themselves stable and active, rather than focusing on burning tons of calories. As this would lead to another tip by Moodzie, which would be to keep your diet in check, and especially if you are exercising as a pregnant woman you will require more calories than you normally would consume, thus make sure you eat a relatively calorie dense and nutritionally rich diet. Thus, it is very important to even if you are exercising to keep your diet in check, and essentially eat more calories, as while going through pregnancy your body requires a more calories, and when you exercise as well naturally you will need a little bit more calories.
Another tip by Moodzie, would be to keep yourself hydrated, as during pregnancy women are more likely to get dehydrated and during exercise it is even more important that you have drank the right amounts of liquids. If your doctor, has told you to stay away from intense exercise, sports, or workouts, then just keep moving and simply try to be active doing chores, walking around more, and doing things such as yoga or stretching. Stretching is very important, as it also warms you up right before your workout, and gets your muscles relaxed, as working out when the muscles are tight or tense can put one at risk of injury. In overall aspects, exercise can be great for women going through pregnancy, however they should certainly not overdo, consult their doctor, eat a healthy and adequate amount, and also make sure you keep yourself hydrated, it can be tough to do, however exercise certainly has its benefits.
