A â€œMom Must-Readâ€â€”Parents
Easy-to-follow practices that will help moms find quick, daily opportunities to reset and refocus with mindfulness
Moms can feel as if they are sprinting through life, crashing onto the pillow at dayâ€™s end only to start again the next morning. In Breathe, Mama, Breathe, psychotherapist Shonda Moralis outlines the benefits of daily meditation and shows moms how to do itâ€”in just five minutes! Plus, she shares over 60 â€œmindful breaksâ€ that will help moms tune into their own well-being (along with everyone elseâ€™s):
- Eat a mindful breakfastâ€”with no phone, TV, or newspaper!
- Cuddle your child and take three deep breaths together.
- Give yourself a mindful-mommy high fiveâ€”because moms can use positive reinforcement, too.
Every momâ€”whether caring for a new baby, an overscheduled grade-schooler, or an angsty teenâ€”can become a mindful mama!
