Psychotherapist Shonda Moralis outlines the benefits of daily meditation and shows moms how to do it—in just five minutes! She shares over 60 "mindful breaks" that help moms tune into their own well-being (along with everyone else’s), and become mindful mamas. Her easy-to-follow practices help moms find quick, daily opportunities to reset and refocus with mindfulness, such as eating a mindful breakfast (with no phone, TV, or newspaper); cuddling their child and taking three deep breaths together; or giving themselves a mindful-mommy high five (because moms can use positive reinforcement, too).
Shonda Moralis is a psychotherapist in private practice specializing in stress-related disorders and mindfulness-based therapy. She writes the Psychology Today blog "Breathe, Mama, Breathe," and her own blog at ShondaMoralis.net. Shonda has developed and taught mindfulness courses and workshops for children, parents, teachers, and students.
