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!)

After wowing the crowd with a phenomenal dance routine alongside partner Travis Wall on the finale of So You Think You Can Dance, Jenna Dewan-Tatum admits that the stage isn’t the only place she busts out the moves.
In fact, she might even have a cuter, yet tinier, dance partner: Daughter Everly.
“Everly loves a good dance party,” Dewan-Tatum told PEOPLE of her and husband Channing Tatum‘s 2 year old at the show’s finale Monday.
“She definitely is a Frozen fan at the moment. All we do is dance to Frozen and it’s fun. Every now and again, I can get her to change it over and we listen to some actual fun pop music and she’ll be like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, so Let It Go.’ ”
Here’s a sweet way to kick off your Sunday: Take a look at a photo actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum just posted of 21-month-old daughter Everly.
“So @Reebok challenged me to #getpumped and run this hill 10x on a sat morning … buuuut I had a lil helper too,” the Step Up star wrote Saturday on Instagram.
Dewan-Tatum, 34, recently told PEOPLE that she loves her daughter’s confidence and passion. “She’s a go-against-the-grain kind of girl, which I love.”
“I just want her to be a confident, happy, passionate girl who feels comfortable in her skin and is able to pursue her dreams,” Dewan-Tatum said.
Everly is a quick study when it comes to dancing, too.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum says her 21-month-old daughter Everly has acquired the gift of the gab.
“She’s talking a lot more,” the actress, 34, said at the Old Navy, On The Road event at Fig & Olive in L.A. on Saturday. “Her new favorite thing is to tell me, ‘Mommy, I want down,’ but it’s never an appropriate time. We’ll be walking down the street and I’m like, ‘No Everly, you can’t [sit] down here.’ ”
It’s just that Everly likes to do her own thing, the actress explains.
“She’s a go-against-the-grain kind of girl, which I love,” says Dewan-Tatum. “I just want her to be a confident, happy, passionate girl who feels comfortable in her skin and is able to pursue her dreams.”
And the best way to achieve this, according to Dewan-Tatum, is by spending as much time as possible with her little one.
But the 34-year-old actress insists that it is just the result of much hard work.
“I work out with Jen Johnson, this trainer that I’ve worked out with forever who does a dance-based training,” Dewan-Tatum told PEOPLE while attending the Hollywood Reporter‘s Women in Entertainment Breakfast.
“It’s awesome. It’s so hard. Everyone I brought to it says it’s the hardest workout they’ve ever done.”
But even the demanding certified trainer has nothing on Dewan-Tatum’s other exercise partner.
And their 1-year-old daughter has yet to decide for herself what makes it on her plate.
The first-time mom’s main priority is ensuring she creates a positive — and fun — approach to good nutrition.
“We have a little garden so I’ll say, ‘Let’s go pick the vegetables we’re going to eat tonight,'” the Witches of East End star, 33, shares. “My pediatrician believes it’s completely healthy and possible to have a vegan child and I think that’s amazing.”
