Once I became a mom, mindfulness practice became one of the most anxiety producing activities I could think of. I could wrap my conscious around physical activity because exercise = health = energy = longevity for my little guy ⚡️👌🏼 When it came to practicing for my mental well being...I felt like I was taking time away from him, being selfish, or wasting time I could use productively. .
Because it felt so hard, meant it was one of the things I needed most as I was regularly blaming myself for my baby’s NICU stay. Now my chocolate faced monster is ✌🏼dos años 😭😍 and I can’t even describe how much better of a place I’m in. Of course, life gets easier as you get the hang of #momminghard 🔥 but a lot of that growth and content is the result of listening to what I need on a soul level. It sounds so weird to want to connect on a deeper level with yourself, but sometimes we require that attention to find our deepest desires and rawest self 🧜🏼♀️ 🌵#firsttimemom #millennialentrepreneur #yogamom
