Hey mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com Happy Thursday mama. And if you have not already, be sure to reserve your spot for the much needed mama meditation. If you need some peace and quiet in your life, take just 30 minutes for yourself. I promise you will leave a little bit more relaxed, a little bit more recharged and ready for the rest of the holiday season. It’s this Sunday, December 19 at 2pm Reserve your spot at allyoumama.com/mamameditation. And Mama’s Daily dose is… a quote from Dr. Joe Dispenza in his book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, “About 95% of who we are by midlife is a series of subconscious programs that have become automatic.” Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.
Midlife can be a different number and you know we always hear about midlife crises…is it crises… crisis is I don’t know how you say it anyways, a midlife crisis. And this quote really jumped out to me because a couple sentences before this, he had said by age 35, and I’m like, crap. I’m 35. And it talks about how most of what we do all day, every day by midlife, is just our subconscious. We’re basically just going through the motions, you know, you get in the car, you drop your kids off at school, then you go run some errands or you go to work, and then you come home and you make dinner. And it’s the same thing every single day. And I just took a moment, I was like, wow, I really, I do, we all have our routines. And I feel like routines are helpful, they keep you sane, and they keep things in line, especially when you have children. It’s like having that routine that naptime the same time they know what to expect. And you know what to expect. But also, we need a little change in our lives, we need something to kind of light us up and get our brain going and get our conscious in there too. So I want you to just think of some little things that you can change to stop being so automatic in your life, like hey, maybe try brushing your teeth, with the other hand with your non dominant hand, which sounds kind of crazy, but it’s actually really difficult. And it kind of just gets your brain working again because sometimes as moms, we get stuck in our routine we get stuck in the same things and we just need a little something to spice it up. Or speaking to spice maybe try something new for dinner tonight.
Mama we all need a little change sometime and it doesn’t have to be some crazy like going on a big trip or anything like that. But hey, if you need a vacation to do that too, but just try to make something up today. And make sure you sign up for that Mama meditation this Sunday December 19 and I will see you tomorrow it is Friday. I hope you have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it
