We are living some stressful times right now. It’s no wonder that so many moms have no relaxation in their lives… let alone mind relaxation! This type of relaxation is extremely sought after and is actually incredibly easy to obtain... and for free. You can achieve mind relaxation through meditation. The connection between meditation and relaxation is essential as meditation leads to relaxation and most importantly mind relaxation.
Meditation for mothers is a way to recharge your "inner" batteries.
And the great thing about meditation for mothers is that it can be done anywhere. One of the greatest misconceptions about meditation in general is that it involves some sort of mystical ritual, that you need to be of some sort of specific religion, or that you need some kind of meditation guru. Nothing could be further from the truth. You can meditate just about anywhere, do not need a meditation guru to teach you, and definitely do not have to be a member of any specific religion or be part of a religion at all. Meditation is merely a way to reconnect with yourself and to achieve mind relaxation so that you can be present during your motherhood trials and enjoy being a mother to your child(ren), wife, and each and every other role you play throughout your daily life.
If you can set aside just 10 minutes a day, there are meditation techniques that you can begin to practice immediately.
Here's the basic idea behind meditation - relaxation. Meditation for mothers is all about gaining a better understanding of yourself- of finding and tapping into the inner peace that we all have and for some reason have forgotten is there or just don’t know where it is. The result is a state of relaxation (patience, compassion) that reduces, if not totally eliminates, the emotional response that the trials of daily stress create in your mind and body. The great thing, again, is that this can be done in the comfort of your own home or the office and at moments that are most convenient for you.
With all of this in mind, meditation for mothers and guided meditation videos are definitely worth the time to check out and will result in giving you mind relaxation.
Meditation is a proven means for a healthier, happier, and more productive life. Take advantage of what meditation for mothers can do you and your relationships with your family, friends, and co-workers. You will not be disappointed with the results.

Sonja: I'm reading with interest your "recovering lawyer" mental health writings. I've got a few ex-lawyer friends as well; one who is teaching high school english part time, after 15 or so years in private practice. I'm interested in your take on why people enter law school then the bar, and then are disillusioned about a legal career. What caused the disenchantment? What was the disconnect? No need to write a lengthy answer; I'm sure you've posted some thoughts somewhere earlier.
I write about immune health and quality of life. Some indirect tie-in with your field
may be here.
I've got to agree with you that I too know more lawyers that are unhappy with their profession than I'd like to admit. In my experience, I entered the profession of law thinking it was something completely different to what it actually is.
TV and society can certainly mislead you as to what your daily work can be as an attorney! I go much into detail about my journey from lawyer and all the stuff I did throughout my law profession to my current role as editor of My Meditation Garden. You can read more about
my journey here and by the way, I'm flattered from your interest!
