‘Mindful Thoughts for Mothers is the perfect present for mums everywhere. It explores a mother’s world, helping the reader to hold a sense of the “bigger picture” while being present in the day-to-day.’ – Mental Health Foundation
‘The opposite of hardline, hectoring motherhood manuals, this charmingly illustrated hardback takes a gentle meander through the motherhood journey.’ – Waitrose Weekend
Mindful Thoughts for Mothers brings mindful awareness to important moments on the mothering journey.
Part of the Mindful Thoughts series, this beautifully illustrated little book meditates on all aspects of motherhood, including:
The first few months
Your identity as a mother
Boundaries and compromise
…and many more
Motherhood is one of the most wonderful and powerful experiences we can have in life. As the early years of our children’s lives unfold, we will undoubtedly experience the joys they bring, but will also encounter the stresses and demands that appear daily and nightly on the parenting path. Using mindfulness practice to manage these demands we can become more present and meet life with awareness, in the moment. These 25 focused reflections on motherhood will help you find greater self-understanding and enable you to navigate a mindful path along this exciting journey.
