Does dry brushing work? I’ll tell you all about my experience!

The stigma on being a stay-at-home mom (and why we should allow moms to be moms)

When you become a parent you are confronted with several choices which color the life of your child. It’s your duty to weigh these options responsibly and to choose what you feel works best for your family. As women have been perceived as a child’s primary care-giver for decades, you would think staying home for the kids would be most socially accepted – if not expected. Four months into motherhood I’m finding out the opposite is true. I’ll even go as far as to say I feel that in our Western culture there’s a stigma on being a stay-at-home mom. In this article I would like to share my personal findings, and make a call to action to remind ourselves to simply allow moms to be moms (and of course, allow dads to be dads).

My favorite mindful mobile game

The Mister fares best when he’s busy. He rather spends his time doing something constructive or useful, rather than sit back and daydream a bit. That’s why I was surprised to get a leisurely recommendation from him that didn’t involve a wikipedia article. A mobile game no less! But fear not; it isn’t some flashy concoction which appeals to your addictive traits or stimulates you to pay money to progress. In fact, I can genuinely state this mindful mobile game is a work of art.
