MomsGetReal is declaring this year to be the year every mom takes a few more minutes each day for herself. As moms, we all tend to get caught up in the roles we play – nurturers, chauffeurs, CFOs, caretakers (to more than just our kids!). We sometimes forget to be individuals.
So this year, we think every mom should carve ten minutes out of the day for mind clearing. Meditation. Me-time. Whatever you want to call it, carve out for yourself a 10-minute escape from everything (including the Internet, cell phone, tablet, and other digital devices that keep you bogged down).
There are proven benefits from taking even ten minutes a day for quiet meditation, including the physically measurable result of lower blood pressure, as well as providing your body with a better mechanism for handling and reducing stress, improving your overall sense of well-being, and even improving your ability to sleep at night. All those benefits in 10 little minutes.
You are worth it.
And when you take that ten minutes and it starts turning into ten minutes of thinking about what you should be doing, making grocery lists in your head, or otherwise not being able to shut out the noise of the day, you’re going to do one more thing: push play.
When you need a little help toning down the busy-ness in your mind, Dean and Dudley Evenson are creating peace inducing, beautiful music that can help you escape.
Meditation Moods is one of many beautiful collections of music available from Soundings of the Planet. Incorporating sounds of nature with peaceful music created with flutes, harps, keyboards, and singing bowls.
The music the couple creates provides an escape from the pressures of life that works better than a massage (although they have had their music recommended by massage.com) and allows you to literally float off into a relaxing space and discover the magic of utter escape.
I was provided a copy of the CD in order to offer my honest review.
