Mindfulness is a powerful practice that can help you navigate the ups and downs of motherhood, and help you be the mother – and the YOU – that you want to be. Mindfulness is our ability to attend to the present moment, with curiosity and without judgement. It is a powerful tool that transforms how you relate to your own life and how you engage with the world. There is a growing body of research out there that tells us that when mothers practise mindfulness they experience less stress and anxiety, build stronger relationships with their children and feel less overwhelmed by the demands of motherhood. Their children experience less stress and anxiety, too. In this beautifully illustrated book, mindfulness expert Sarah Rudell Beach introduces the basics of mindfulness and offers a collection of meditations and mantras. From dealing with tantrums and your patience being tested to making time for yourself and practising self-compassion, you’ll discover how a mindful approach can lead to greater calm, balance and ease in your daily life.
