Mindfulness for mums
Mindfulness for mums

Mindfulness meditation might not be the first thing that comes to mind if you are a mother with young children (especially during these days of mandatory self-isolation at home!), but Izzy Judd’s new book may be just what the doctor ordered. Judd battled anxiety long before she became a mother, though having children made matters much worse—she ended up worrying about them, about herself, the family. To escape this cycle of stress, she began to practise mindfulness in situations that are hardly conducive to meditation. The result is this witty and humane collection of 30 techniques, one for each day of the month, that might help families keep “calm, connected and content".

A weekly guide to a better you at home, life and work.
