Being Mindful

7 Everyday Practices For Mindful Moms : Day 1 – What, Why And How – #BarAThon

7 Everyday Practices For Mindful Moms


When I decided to participate in second edition of BarAThon, I was thinking whether to go for theme seven or to go for the given prompts. And finally made a decision to go for theme seven since I wrote for the given prompts in my first edition of BarAThon. So my theme for second edition of BarAthon is 7 Everyday Practices For Mindful Moms.

What is Being Mindful or Mindfulness?

Being Mindful or Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way;

On purpose,
in the present moment, and
non judgmentally.”

Jon Kabat-Zinn

Mindful or Mindfulness is being aware of present moment without any judgement or hard feelings. Cultivating the practice of mindfulness can be a powerful way to train our minds and tune into the beauty of here and now. 


Why Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the current buzzword around the web. And it’s getting viral than anything else now. But that is not the reason for my decision. As you all know, word of the year, I chose for 2017 was Mindful. So its more than a justification for my word choice.

Why Seven?

I have already justified this in my first para. If you could recollect Why Seven?, you can continue reading.  😉  😉  😉 Otherwise, sorry my dear. You get back to read my first para.  😛  😛  😛 

Why everyday practices?

Any new habit can yield its best results only if practiced everyday. So here I am going to give you 7 everyday practices that are simple yet powerful ones. All these practices were self tested and proven ones. Hope you will enjoy this mindful journey with me.

Why moms?

Mindfulness is almost needed for all – moms, parents, kids, teens, teachers. And I chose mindfulness for moms since they are the vital backbone of a family. If moms love being mindful, then it becomes easy to inculcate the habit of being mindful to kids and others. Moms are super moms too, when they are mindful moms.

    Vasantha, I love how all your blogs are always full of so much positive vibe. It speaks a lot about you as a person. Looking forward to other blogs in the series.

  2. Love the concept of mindfulness for mom Vasantha – looking forward to reading more!! Cheers to a rocking Barathon

  3. Looking forward to reading your tips on Mindfulness for moms. I have been trying to learn more about mindfulness at least out of curiosity but haven’t made a sincere effort yet.

  4. What a great topic for the challenge! I look forward to reading your posts. Mindfulness is something moms and everyone in general should pay more attention to. I know I am bad at it and tend to daydream or fret or regret instead of paying attention to the now which is all we have.

  5. Anamika Agnihotri

    You are so right. Moms need to be mindful the most as they are the backbone of the family. I have a question, though. How does a Mindful planner work in this aspect?

    1. Vasantha Vivek

      Thanks Anamika. Mindful planner helps to plan for what you think to be mindful on particular day and your observation on that activity. It helps me a lot in recording my mindful moments.

  6. Loved reading your handy tips for moms for mindfulness. I’m a great believer of the mindfulness practice and find it makes me much more effective in my role as a parent to my newly-turned teen! Moms should never ever undermine the role of keeping the focus on their self-development goals alongside looking after the kids. It is no longer an option, it is a must!

  7. Thank you for this beautiful into to mindfulness. I am looking forward to know more about it and how you practice this in your daily life.

  8. Very positive post:-) Made me smile, and I practice this too- at least many of the same elements – being present in NOW – letting go of yesterday and not worrying about tomorrow. In contact with yourself. Big part of a happy life – thanks for inspiring:-)
