Slow the F down

Right on the heels of International Women’s Day I have a message for all of us–

Slow the F down.

Seriously, you’ll be amazed at how much more sense your life can make when you take the time to really absorb what is happening to you.

Take that 5 minutes to breathe in the bathroom in the middle of your day.

Turn off your phone, computer and all the lights and sit beside a candle to drink a hot cup of tea.

Breathe in deeply right now through your nose and as you exhale close your eyes.

These things can seem like annoying nuisances– just another task to add to the laundry list of ‘To Do’s– but really giving yourself, and all of your internal systems, the time to rest like that is extremely beneficial.

Our most creative ideas happen in time of play or free flow.

We get more nutrients from the food we eat when our nervous system is not on edge.

If we spend all of our time cramming as many activities, tasks, and information into the time that we have… we end up losing out on our full potential as human beings.

To enjoy our lives.

To feel peaceful.

To connect.

To really reflect on how we are choosing to live, what we are celebrating, what is our growth edge, and how do I really feel anyway?

As the saying goes, when you rush you’re only putting yourself further behind…

Take a minute to meditate on that.

Yes, even if you have kids this applies to you my dears. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for support.

I founded Mamas To Be as a resource for savvy women who want to live healthy right now, and have babies one day. My personal motivation was knowing that I want to be a mom one day, and what I learned became a professional passion for supporting women, babies and families through the experience of birth.
