Welcome back to the Zen(ish) Mommy Podcast! We have been doing a series on Back-to-School Mindfulness where we equip parents with the tools to share with kids if those back-to-school nerves are filling your home! During today’s mini episode, we are diving into the question of what mindfulness really is.
“Mindfulness is a word that gets thrown around a lot, but it truly means to be in the present moment, without judgement.” – Jessica Gershman
We start by discussing the benefits of mindfulness, which include, decreased stress, increased attention, improved interpersonal relationships, and more!
Join us as we explore how to combat the mind’s tendency to keep us stuck in either the past or the future through mindfulness.
“Feeling into the body – allows us to drop out of the mind and into the physical body.” – Jessica Gershman
Tune in today to learn how to find your Zen and pass down these skills to your children. Check back weekly at The Zen Mommy to learn a new exercise to add to your mindfulness toolkit.
