The running around, the twenty-four-hour attention, and the everlasting worry for the child even after a child move on in life is a universal feeling. But motherhood is most difficult for new mothers who have just set off on a new journey of understanding a human they call their “child.” Amid all this mess, mothers hardly have any time to have a quiet meal, leave alone care for themselves.

    Unlike the regular push-ups that require rigorous effort, wall push-ups are simple to do. All you do is take the push-up position against the wall and get your body moving. Do it anywhere, in the kitchen while you wait for the food to cook, in the shower (don’t slip!), or in the living room while watching television. 

  2. Walking:

    Doesn’t sound difficult already, right? You might think, “I already walk all day long in the house picking stuff up!” Well, that’s just chores. Why don’t you start counting steps on your mobile so that you feel good about those chore-accompanied walks and then set a goal for whatever time you have left in the day and use that in walking? Take a walk when on a call or take your child to the park where you get a couple of rounds. 

  3. Single-Leg Balance:
