Aside the fact that many are being thrown out of their jobs due to the ongoing economic strain in the country, quite a number of women are faced daily with the decision to stay at home to look after their kids. Such situations can be quite traumatic as it means a cut-down of income amongst many other issues. But the truth is – losing a job or taking a break off your regular 9-5 isn’t the end of the world. It simply means it’s time to become your own boss by exploring your business ideas while also enjoying quality time with your family.

It’s been a few weeks or even months since you welcomed your baby, and while you have been enjoying the time bonding with your baby you may have noticed that you still look as if you are pregnant. Don’t worry, it’s normal. Many women struggle to get their pre-pregnancy bodies back. However, remember that you won't get your flat stomach in a day; after all, it took 9 months for your uterus to grow.

You have to be consistent with exercising and eating healthy to get a lasting result sooner.
