Released on Dec 13, 2016

In this 14th and final episode of 2016 for the Mindful Mama Movement, Shannon gifts us with 5 essential tips for how to stay mindful during the holidays. She emphasizes that we must "embrace imperfection," and that this is "a wonderful time of year to renew and to get's going to be up to us to create the kind of season that we want - which is slower, simpler, more present."

Continuing in the spirit of slower and simpler, Shannon has included a blissful, guided meditation for deep relaxation within the second half of the episode. You will also want to make sure to go to and sign up for our mailing list (if you haven't already) to receive an additional free guided meditation by Ashley on making space in your life.

So please treat yourself to these invaluable moments of reflection. As Shannon states, "Part of the point of the holiday season is to learn how to receive."


Additional quotes:

"Feel more grounded and reconnect to your breath...there is nothing more present than your breath."

"Let go of your need to do it all."

"Don't strive to be perfect; strive to be imperfect."
