Even if you love to reflect, which I hope you don’t mistake for rumination, starting a meditation practice can still be a struggle. If you are a new mother like me, then that makes it harder. Did you say you are a working mom, too? Now it seems impossible to begin meditating.
But please, do yourself a favor and commit to meditating even just for 10 minutes a day. Turn your me-time into a mindfulness practice session. It’s as easy as turning idle time (aimlessly scrolling Facebook or Instagram) into a mindfulness exercise. It’s a choice you can make starting now.
Mindfulness meditation can reduce stress, according to studies. Mothers, whether full-time, working, or stay-at-home and working, are drowning in stress. That’s according to a US study. In the Philippines, I bet the same is true.
Day after day, you give so much of yourself to your child, your job, and your partner. It’s time to give yourself a much-needed mental health break. This is your soul’s source of true power.
Whether you want to cultivate a grateful heart, improve your focus, or simply start the day right, there is a meditation practice for that.
Here are some awesome beginner-friendly meditation practices for mothers that you can listen to now for FREE. Each guided meditation below is about 15 minutes or shorter.
