Nikki Bella plans to prioritize ‘Me Time’ during the first year of motherhood

Mom play strong! Nikki Bella wants to make sure that self-care is part of her routine so she can be the best mom for her new baby.

Nikki and her twin sister, Brie Bella, both 36, opened on Wednesday, August 5, episode of their “The Bellas Podcast.”

“My first year goals are to focus on being the best mom I can be, putting my son first, whether it’s’ how can I continue to breastfeed and is that the best for him? “Nikki explained.” Learn about vaccines, schools, what helps him grow, what keeps him safe? As if I’m going to make it such a focus in my life. “

She added, “But I’m also going to make sure I make ‘time for myself’ at the beginning, so I know I will remain a happy, healthy mom. For example, I have goals to get my body back in a very healthy way and to meditate, just as I do with him now in the womb. We will continue with that. ‘

For her part, Brie said the pandemic made her realize that she should prioritize what fulfills herself and her family.

“I am always the person who is like, ‘Well in five years time …'” she said. “Well what do you think? I am almost 37 years old, so when are the five? So I’m ready to stop saying “Five years from now” and start saying “I’m going to do this within this year.” I don’t wait until five years. ”

Nikki opened up about the pressure she feels to get back in shape after giving birth in the July 22 episode of her podcast.

“I’m like, ‘OK so I have to wait for eight weeks to start, like, train hard or do you think I could push it up to six weeks?” “The first Dancing with the stars participant said. Because someone asked me, “How soon do you think you’ll get your body back?” I bet you’ll get it soon. “And I already started saying in my head, ‘Okay, January 2021, Nicole, you better have your abs back, you better be this weight, you better be in this shape.’ ‘
