Welcome to day 2 of 21 days of mindfulness with Leonie Percy author of the award winning book Mother Om.

Yesterday we learnt how mindfulness can help you manage the emotional journey of motherhood. I hope you downloaded and printed your beautiful mindfulness journal so you can reflect on your journey and use it to see which mindfulness meditations work for you.

Today you will learn how to let go of guilt and cultivate more joy in your role of being a mother by unplugging and being present with your family. Watch me share tips on how to practise gratitude as a family.

Watch the video and then make a gratitude jar.

How to create a family gratitude jar

Find a glass jar and place it in the kitchen. Everyday as a family ritual write down what you are grateful for. A great time for this is around the dinner table.

Get the kids to do this too. When teaching younger kids about gratitude ask them what makes them feel happy in their heart.

Write them on post-it notes and put them in the jar. Stick the notes in lunch boxes and hide them around the house.

When feeling stressed just put out a post-it note and read it.

This instantly takes you out of your busy mind and into your heart space, where there is only love, no judgment or fear.

Another way to practice gratitude is when your hanging out the washing, be grateful for your family.


This is your mindful moment.

Tomorrow I will teach you how to mother from your heart, not your head.

  • Thank you for another nice video!
    It’s already 3 years that we have a gratitude jar in our home. We don’t write notes every day, but just when something that we think it’s special, happens. Then on the last day of the year, we open the jar and read the notes as a way to say goodbye to the year that has just passed. :-)

    • I love that you have a gratitude jar and your yearly ritual sounds beautiful. It is also lovely to use post-it notes to put around the house and in the kids lunch boxes. I always write I love you on bananas. Thanks for watching the videos. I really hope you enjoy the rest of the course love Leonie x

      • I’m sure I will. I love putting notes in my daughter’s lunchbox too! :-)
