I was woken up by my crying baby around 2 am. I was exhausted. I was a first time mom and I was struggling. I would have done anything to feel like my “old self” again. Of course this was impossible. Now that I was a mom my life would NEVER be the same. In amazing ways, but also in challenging ones. I found that the unrealistic expectations of what it means to be a good mom, not making time to take care of myself and worrying about whether I was doing a good enough job left me feeling anxious and overwhelmed.
Can you relate??
It was during this 2 am feeding frenzy that the idea for The Mindful Family was downloaded. As a clinician working with other families for the last 15 years I knew that I was NOT alone in my motherhood struggles. While their struggles were different than mine, they were still there.
I also knew that I was uniquely designed to help other moms through this adventure. So The Mindful Family was created.
I want to invite you to take three deep breaths, close your eyes and imagine that you feel calm, confident and inspired in your role as a mother AND in every aspect of your life. How is your physical health? How is your mental health? How is your spiritual health? What do you look and feel like?
What if this was your reality? What could change in your life? What could change for your children? What could change for your grandchildren?
It is our belief that the healthier and happier an individual is the healthier their family will be and the better off our planet will be. We created The Mindful Family to support mothers to feel happier, more confident and more relaxed about their lives and their future.
The Mindful Family is for you if you are open to new ideas, committed to personal growth and interested in learning about and experimenting with Mindful Living, Human Design and other healing & wellness tools.
Will you make the commitment to yourself and your family?
"The Mindful Family is committed to supporting mothers to find the balance between being compassionate and non-judgmental, while bringing awareness to those things that they want to improve upon.
There is no such thing as a perfect mom but I have learned from personal and clinical experience that by learning new ideas and taking care of ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually we can be a pretty good mom; and that is good enough."
