Being a mom is a 24/7 job. Even if your child is past the age where they need constant attention, it’s likely your mom mind never turns off. But getting rest is critical. Without it, you can’t show up as the best version of yourself for your kids, or yourself. Yoga teacher Janet Stone created this 5-minute meditation just for moms. It calls on Shiva, who can help you learn to slow down and rest.
