Welcome to Day 7 of 21 days of Mindfulness for Mums with Leonie Percy author of the award winning book Mother Om.
Yesterday you watched a lecture that helped you understand the difference between good stress and bad stress and what is happening in your brain when you feel stressed and when you feel relaxed. Activating your para-sympathetic nervous system tells your body to rest and relax. Today I teach you how to relax your body.
Watch the video and then take a moment to sit or lie down do the deep breath meditation.
This mindful moment of breathing is lovely to practice before you go to sleep or in the morning before you get out of bed. Visualise a calm morning flow and set an intention to be a mindful mama.
Thanks for watching the video. Tomorrow I will explain the benefits of using mindfulness to manage stress and how you can re-wire your brain so when your kids are pushing your buttons you can remain calmer and be a more compassionate mother.
