Welcome to day 11 of 21 days of mindfulness with Leonie Percy author of the award winning book Mother Om.
Yesterday, you learnt how to practice mindfulness using your senses. Today, I will teach you why it is so important that you take a break. It is not selfish. It is essential for your emotional well-being.
When you soothe yourself, you are also soothing your children.
Watch the video where I give you 10 reasons to take a break.
Download this poster and put it somewhere you will see it each day as a reminder to take a break.
Now mamas, it is time to do my favourite meditation. Yes, you can meditate with chocolate. The trick is to do this slowly and mindfully.
I do this everyday. Enjoy.
Tomorrow I will teach you how to fill up your own cup, so you can give to others without feeling depleted and exhausted.
