Summary "Between feeding infants, sending kids off to school, helping with homework, getting little ones ready for bed, and countless other activities, it may seem impossible to find a few moments to restore your ever-subsiding sanity. Shonda Moralis has been there. A psychotherapist, she once devoted a half hour each day to meditation. Then she became a busy mama who needed the benefits of her mindfulness practice more than ever: perspective, calm, and the ability to be present for her family. Now, Moralis shares 65 strategies to help you turn everyday moments into your own mindful breaks: over coffee, while bottle- or breast-feeding, in the car, after a meltdown (yours or theirs!), or anytime you need a "Three-Breath Hug" or a reminder that "This, Too, Is Passing.", "--Page 4 of cover.
