3 easy mindfulness practices to take you from stressed to relaxed to enjoy the present moment

Do you notice yourself getting caught up in worry, fear and anxiety? As a Mom this isn't hard to do. We worry about all the things. We are responsible for these little humans running around. Trusting they won't get hurt. Trusting others to help us care for them. Trusting people will be kind to them at school. There is so much we often worry about.



But, what if had a way to calm that inner Mama worrier? What if instead of feeling stressed and anxious and worried about all the little things we felt peace. If that heavy load on our shoulders floated away? 

Let me tell you something Mama....3 years ago I was overcome with worry. Stress. Anxiety. I was brought up in a home and family and generationally the women in my family- we worry. We worry about everything. I had all these crazy ideas floating through my head all day about what might happen that would be bad. And I  had a plan on what I'd do if that happened. Like WOAH. Talk about planning for the future..and in a negative way. I cringe just thinking about it. I  was thinking negatively, worrying about worse case scenarios and if you're familiar at all with the Law of Attraction (LOA), what we think about, we attract. You can read my blog about the 12 universal laws here. So the more I worried, the more I  attracted reasons to worry. Holy Cow. I  was a mess. 

But Mama, the truth is – life (& happiness) are only available in the here and now - neither in the past, nor in the future. And – spoiler alert – it’s your duty to stop holding onto what has already happened - or worrying about what might happen. 

Easier said than done. I know.  That's why I  wanted to share my 3 easy practical tips to get you out of your mind; and free from the worry, stress and anxiety into feeling happy, healthy and balanced.

1. Practice Meditation- Calm your Mind. Calm your Life

Practicing meditation on a regular basis helps you to let go of overwhelming thoughts and calms the mental discourse that goes on and on (and on) inside your mind. It might not feel natural to you in the beginning - it is worth it!

The point in this practice is to help you to let go of worries, fears, and regrets instead of holding on to them. There are tons of guided meditations on YouTube and I also include some in The Mama Protocol course that I've created just for Moms to find peace. 

2. Focus on The Good and the Good Gets Better. Recall what I said above about Law of Attraction (LOA).

Taking 10 minutes to focus on gratitude each day has the power to shift your attitude like nothing else.  

The practice of writing down what makes you happy and what you are grateful for makes your vibe higher instantly and it also helps you get clear on the activities that actually bring joy into your life. 

So, Mama, if you are feeling stuck, unhappy and overcome with feelings you don't like, gratitude journaling is an effective tool to (re)gain clarity and find happiness in the current moment. 


3. EFT or Tapping

This is a realtviely new technique I've learned but I'm here for it. It is called Emotional freedom technique (EFT) and it is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. It’s also referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure.

People who use this technique believe tapping the body can create a balance in your energy system and treat pain. According to its developer, Gary Craig, a disruption in energy is the cause of all negative emotions and pain.

Though still being researched, EFT tapping has been used to treat people with anxiety and people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). And your girl here is soon to be certified! There are tons of tapping videos you can look at online but I of course always recommend working with an expert that is trained and certified :) 


Implementing these 3 super simple mindfulness practices into my morning routine has really made a huge difference for me and I can highly recommend them if you are struggling with finding joy in the present moment with all the other things you're juggling in motherhood. 

I know how life goes and sometimes its totally overwhelming  – but remember that you are not your thoughts. You can reframe those thoughts and start feeling better and design your dream life that you want- not what society or anyone else tells you that you should want! 

If you are seeking guidance for re-claiming your power and getting rid of limiting beliefs, anxiety and overwhelm - I'm here for you Mama!

I’m happy to guide you towards the best version of yourself-the you that you want to be not that you think you should be, or your family thinks you should be. The you that sets your soul on fire and enjoy your present moment :)
