Overview
A "Mom Must-Read"--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 day'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 it--in just five minutes Plus, she shares over 60 "mindful breaks" that will help moms tune into their own well-being (along with everyone else's):
  • Eat a mindful breakfast--with no phone, TV, or newspaper
  • Cuddle your child and take three deep breaths together.
  • Give yourself a mindful-mommy high five--because moms can use positive reinforcement, too.

Every mom--whether caring for a new baby, an overscheduled grade-schooler, or an angsty teen--can become a mindful mama

This debut from Moralis, a psychotherapist and mother of two, consolidates the lessons of her Psychology Today blog into handbook form, offering harried mothers tools for cultivating mindfulness in the tiny bits of time that are often all thats available. Moralis starts by touting, and giving basic instructions for, a short sitting meditation. But the bulk of the book is dedicated over 60 brief write-ups, consisting of a personal anecdote plus instructions, of short mindful breaks that can be taken throughout a typical parents day to become still, less distracted, patient, and calm. Many are for specific timeswhile drinking morning coffee, at the school bus stop, or while doing dishesbut others can be used whenever stressful situations occur, as with STOP the Teen Tude, or encourage self-care in quiet moments in the day. As the title promises, Moralis also provides breath exercises, including some that can be done with children, such as The Three-Breath Hug. Some juxtapositions jump between stages of life and can feel disjointedYour Teen Driver is immediately followed by Bottle- or Breast-Feedingand some suggestions lean away from quick fixes and toward broad attitude adjustments. Overall, Moraliss suggestions strike an effective and empowering note. Agent: Claire Gerus, Claire Gerus Literary Agency. (Jan.)
