A #MindfulMonday: On The Mindfulness Fad

I recently came across a LinkedIn post on mindfulness which was an article shared by the extremely talented, intelligent and inspiring Arianna Huffington. Set aside the fact that I have a completely platonic woman crush on this admirably successful yet humble woman, I am also equally intrigued by any information that can help me be a better me — hence, my immediate mental attraction to the article, titled “Tony Robbins Breaks Down the 10-Minute Exercise He Does Every Morning to Have More Energy.“

More energy? Hell yes, I need this!

I sure as heck need more energy because between balancing children, work and marriage, I am freakin’ drained. As I looked a little closer, I noticed Huffington’s intro teaser referenced the word “priming;” a staple notion of Robbins. And no ladies, he is not talking about what you put on your face pre-makeup application. What Robbins is talking about is the fact that he has spent 30 years practicing this so-called “priming,” which is rooted in yoga and mindfulness.

How Momma Got Her Groove Back (And You Can Too)

“What’s up with Mom? She’s acting different these days. She is slower to respond to our requests for ridiculous things that we could easily get ourselves. She is on her phone a lot, too. She seems to be busier and quicker to ‘shush’ us. But strangely, she also seems happier. She seems excited about whatever it is she is doing on her computer and phone all day. She seems a little prouder of herself.”

Well, guess what guys? Mom went back to work. No, it’s not a 9-5 office job, and that’s why she still gets to spend the majority of her day taking care of you, but she is working, and she is working really freaking hard.

I think that after being a SAHM for three years, the whole family got very used to and fond of the idea that Mommy doesn’t work. Nope. Not like those people who really work. Those people who go to the office every day and make a difference with what they are doing. Nope. That’s not Mom. Mom just stays home with us and makes sure we are doing okay. How easy is that, right?
