Reduce Stress

Life as a mother is full. You’re busy managing and multitasking, 24/7. Which is why taking time for yourself through meditation can be so beneficial for your stress levels. A 2018 study found that mindfulness was effective at reducing general and parenting-related stress for parents of preschoolers. Another study found that mindfulness-based practices reduced stress in mothers of children with autism spectrum disorder.

Enhances Empathy

Again and again, research shows that mindfulness and meditation can increase peoples’ feelings of compassion and empathy. It’s a great tool for motherhood, since practicing mindfulness may help you feel more compassionate towards yourself, your partner, your children, and others in your community (including your fellow moms!)
IconEnhancedEmotionalRegulation

Lower Risk of Postpartum Depression

Lower stress levels generally means moms have a lower chance of becoming depressed. One 2019 study found that mothers who practiced mindfulness regularly had a lower chance of postpartum depression (especially if they started meditating during pregnancy).
IconHigherQualitySleep

Better Sleep

Sleep is at premium when you’re a mom—especially if you’ve got a wakeful baby or toddler. Setting time aside to meditate won’t help your child sleep, of course, but it can help you once you actually have the opportunity to snooze. A 2018 systematic review indicated that mindfulness meditation can have a positive effect on sleep quality.
