Motherhood! Seems one of the best word in the Oxford Dictionary. But, let’s admit it, if it brings a bouquet full of beautiful memories, it also accompanies a basket of worries. If it brings smile, it also pauses them with cries. If it makes you patient, it also brings craziness of a mum, if it makes you open minded, it also brings in possessiveness for your child. The perks it brings along are really which a mind cannot understand but only a heart full of emotions can!
And, as this journey continued, I worked harder to pass on the Examination of Motherhood! As all the mums do, I too tried my best in all fields to give the my child more than what I could. But in that course, somehow I started losing myself. My looks in the mirror changed, My passions in the course of life turned their back to me. I had no time to ponder upon, I really had not a single minute for myself and even plan my future. I was really a happy mama of a bubbling and twinkling child. Many times few questions came in my mind, but again, I really never thought much as I was enjoying the blissful moments.
One morning I had an exquisite time to myself, when I stood in my window sipping coffee. I thought it was a perfect morning to answer my inner queries. The blotted ink that day gave me a realization that I need to revive my old self and passions. I just cannot let them go. They were nurtured with lots of love , emotions and ardor. How can they be forgotten? I need to maintain a healthy and energetic life and at the last, I really need to work upon myself now. To raise a child and passion simultaneously, I need to be a dynamic mama.

Motherhood Chapters of how “E” turned a mama into a Healthy “Me” :
Chapter A : Fitness :
It was a routine to practise Yoga and meditation before having my baby. Time was scarce now, but then I ensured to restart this fitness regime, atleast 4 days a week. The blood circulation started increasing, fresh air filled my lungs again. The mornings became more active and energetic. The look of flowers and trees, chirping birds in the mornings gave a positive assurance towards life. Change for the goodness started again!
Chapter B : Nutrition :
Instead of winding up things quickly, I started focussing on my nutrition along with my baby. Somehow, I had forgotten my nutrition, trying to work out wholesome meals for my Toddler. I regained the focus on more of fibres, raw vegetables, nuts & enhanced the intake of iron and protein rich foods. I started having more of Vitamin A,C,E to have an energetic day throughout. This mama looked fatigued all the time after having a baby, could be due to loss of stamina. But Vitamin E, came to the rescue and helped me regain that nourishment to stay lively and energized.
Chapter C : Regaining hair loss after motherhood :
Honestly, I started losing my hair from the 3rd month birthday of my infant. And that spree continued for more than a year. The initial phases of being a first timer mama, really couldn’t help me with any time for myself. I really lost a track of my glowing hair.
I soon stopped all Paraben and Sulfate Shampoo’s and switched to organic, chemical free shampoo’s. The next step was involving Vitamin E to get back those healthy hair. And that was via the natural foods supplemented with the most effective #Evion Vitamin E capsules. I started using Vitamin E drops in my hair oil regularly to help me contain the loss and get the glow back.
Chapter D : Glowing Skin :
The skin was getting darker, sometimes dull due to lack of sleep, sometimes patchy, due to no care. I formulated a complete skincare regime and in this there was an important role of Vitamin E, to help me get that glow back.
Chapter “E” :
Well, this has to be a conclusive chapter, wherein I started Blogging again, this time with dedicated focus. I wanted to convey so much to the world, I had so many emotions to be penned down. There was a beautiful “mEmoir” in the making. There were amazing “friEnds” in the waiting.
Here is when I realized my love for “E” – Vitamin E. My every chapter has a link towards Vitamin E, which got me back into a confident and a super energetic mama.
[This time I was not looking out of the window, rather, I was in the garden amidst the colorful flowers, running for a slice of life. This time, I was feeling that I was passing the most “Examinations, acting upon rather than just thinking! ]

Foods which I focussed on for Vitamin E :
- Almonds : Daily morning take 6-8 soaked almonds or go for Almond milk.

Other foods which you can add in your diet are Parsley, olives, Mustard green which are great source of not just Vitamin E, but even other micro & macro nutrients to keep your body healthy.
Supplements for suggestion :
Vitamin E is a must element for our health. Using the right amount of Vitamin E in diet along with Vitamin E supplements, one can have a well balanced, energetic, and multi-tasking life. The best supplement, which I can say after having used are the #Evion Supplements, from Evion, India’s No.1 Vitamin E Brand.
