I often hear moms say that they don’t have time to meditate. Or that they get too distracted. I get that! Meditating with your kids around you is not something that makes you feel relaxed. You have a better chance of feeling annoyed or irritated!
When you do have time for yourself, you might not want to spend it meditating. Or you’re afraid that you’ll fall asleep as soon as you close your eyes.
But what if I told you that there are ways for you to meditate? That there are ways to find your calm and reconnect with yourself? And what if I told you it can be easy?
Meditation sometimes sounds complicated and boring. And as something not for moms… Even though as a mom, you might need it the most! But I know that meditation can be easy and fun!
A few years ago I was a single mom with two small children. I was sick and overworked. Meditation was one of the things that helped me to feel better. Because it helped me reconnect with myself. It helped me to find my calm in the chaos that my life was at that moment.
It all started with a meditation cd that had one long meditation of 30 minutes. I had other cd’s too, but those were 1 hour! That was way too long for me and I was very happy when in the evening I could find the 30 minutes. In the years that followed I was lucky to learn that there are easier ways. And I found out that meditations don’t have to be long to help you relax.
I also found that there are other things than meditation that can help you find your calm in the chaos. That can help you relax and reconnect with yourself.
These may all seem like tiny acts, but they will have a big effect. As a mom you need use the imperfect moments in your day to add a little bit of calm here and there. These are all tiny acts of self-love and you’re so worth it!
