Mindfulness For Moms: 3 Tips to Help Moms Transform Stress Into Peace

What moms want most is to de-stress! Studies have revealed that moms tend to be more stressed than dads. Drop into mindfulness throughout your day, and do it every day. Even the busiest moms can carve out one minute! The more mindfulness you create in your life, the more you will rewire your brain to easily tap into that sense of calm. Here are three tips to help moms transform their stress into more peace and inner calm:

  • Brush your teeth mindfully: For me, brushing my teeth is a great mindfulness exercise. It’s something I do twice every day, and now I consciously brush my teeth mindfully. I close my eyes to limit visual distractions, which makes it easier for me to think only about the feel of the brush on my teeth and gums – the taste of the toothpaste, the sound of the electric brush in my mouth, the feeling of my teeth when I am finished. And I carry the mindfulness through flossing my teeth. So, there are three minutes of total, in-the-moment awareness. What a nice break for my brain!
  • Drink your morning coffee or tea mindfully: If you are feeling the warmth of the mug in your hands and smelling the coffee and paying attention to how it tastes when you take your first sip – this is all mindfulness in practice. You might want to drink the entire cup like that, savoring each swallow!
  • Walk to/from your car mindfully: Walking to your car is another time that can be a mindfulness exercise. I love to open all my senses, feel the air on my skin, and hear and see the different elements of the scene around me. I feel my body walking, concentrating on different parts of my feet, legs and arms, and then switch back to focusing all my senses, taking everything into my awareness.

Julie Potiker Welcome to the #30Seconds community! Love this tip! Reading this I realized when I walk my dogs in the morning waiting for them to do their biz, I enjoy the warmth of the sun on my face and the quiet of the morning outside and the morning clouds dancing in the sky. Taking a deep breath before I head back inside to the morning craziness of getting the kids ready and off to school.
