Five Minutes Away from Relaxation

Meditation for busy mom’s
By Jeanette Griffin

When the pressure of parenthood begins to build it is natural to look for ways to de-stress. A Busy mom’s life can leave us feeling overloaded and overwhelmed and it is natural to want relief. Sometimes the means by which many moms look for relief are not productive or healthy. Such as overeating, smoking, drinking, even excessive exercise can be harmful. There are many stress management techniques and one of the most well-know is Meditation. Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years. It was originally intended to help deepen the understanding of sacred and mystical forces of life. Today, meditation is used for relaxation and stress reduction. It has been known for its ability to calm and restore peace.

Mayo Clinic stated “Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health.”

As a busy Mom it can be difficult to find 30 minutes to sit, let alone to sit quietly. Meditation is not difficult to do; it does not need to be done on a regular base or in extensive sessions. Short, frequent meditation can offer some of the biggest gains.

Try to be mindful throughout the day and notice moments within your day that you can take five minutes to slow your mind, and body.
