Pay special attention to the physical and emotional state of the child. Due to stress, she may behave differently than on normal days. Help her relax. Iryna Harmash, a member of the International Federation of Functional Training and a speaker at international congresses, knows how to do this through the body.
Extend your arms, clench your fists, close your eyes tightly, then open your palms, shake your hands and open your eyes. You can sing together.
You can also take a walk in the fresh air, which is good for you and your baby – this is an alternative to fitness. By the way, walking not only improves muscle tone and blood circulation, but also calms the psyche. Classes with children help the mother to get a good physical activity without parting with her child.
1. Dancing with a baby
While holding the baby in your arms, dance constantly, but do not do it too actively. Your movements should be smooth: combine fast and slow dance to increase your heart rate.
At the same time, breathe deeply and sing along.
2. Exercises on the abs
Lie on your back, legs bent at the knees. Put the baby on his stomach closer to the thighs, lean the child on them, as if on his back. Tighten the abdominal muscles. Keep your head, shoulders and shoulders off the floor. Do this 20 times.
3. Raising the baby over himself
Put your legs wider than your shoulders, knees bent, pelvis twisted. We spread our elbows to the side, lower the child on the inhale, and raise the child on the exhale. If you have older children, it is good to march like a soldier, raising your legs high in front of you. By connecting the imagination, you can beat any exercise so that the baby was fun and enjoyable.
4. Ball games
Invaluable in their importance for the health, physical and intellectual development of the child. Take one or two large balls. Show your child how you play ball, ride, throw, catch and more. Try to teach your child.
Do not force the child to perform tasks, do not blame for distraction, incompetence, etc. Show imagination. For example, rhyming (poetic text) when playing a game with a ball, helps to make the game more interesting.
Do not forget about the age of your child, his physical capabilities.
For example: you can put a basket (basin, box) on the floor and at a distance of 150 cm from it in a circle lay out a circle of long cord.
Mom shows the child how to throw the ball in the basket. First, the child throws the ball first with his right hand, then with his left.
Joint training promotes mutual understanding, friendship and love between mother and child. The child becomes strong, healthy, and still feels completely safe.
