A book of wisdom and mindfulness exercises for mothers of young children. Becoming a mother brings a lot of change, both physically and emotionally. Time becomes scarce and stress levels rise. Many new mothers spend their days rushing from one task to the next. Mindfulness for Mothers is a book to help mothers create a sense of balance, awareness and calm for themselves and their children. Meditation teacher Rebecca Ryan has created a series of simple exercises, from 10-second tension breakers to 30-minute restorative body awareness routines, to do either alone or in the company of your child. Beautifully designed with instructional illustrations, this book provides a gentle solution to the upheavals of this challenging but rewarding time.
