It can be hard for moms to carve out time to concentrate on themselves, but meditation expert Emily Fletcher believes meditating is actually the most selfless thing a mother can do.
“So many moms are so good at giving, sometimes to the point of exhaustion and depletion. If you’re running on empty, then you don’t have anything to give to your family,” explains Fletcher, who has instructed Jenna Dewan-Tatum in her Ziva Meditation technique.
“If you take the time to fill up your own tank with bliss and fulfillment and energy, then you’re going to be giving some higher quality time to your family.”
Whether you’re a mom of a newborn or older kids, Fletcher’s tips and advice will help you experience the benefits of meditation. (Dewan-Tatum credits meditation with her natural glow, so it’s definitely worth trying!)
