My Motherhood: Elena Brower

For the My Motherhood series, we ask different women the same series questions about mindfulness and motherhood to see what works for other women, but also to show how even though we may be different, we are all in this together.

Today we talk to mom of one, Elena Brower of Art Of Attention.

Yoga teacher Elena Bower talks about the daily rituals that keep her grounded in Motherhood and family practices that keep everyone connected when life gets busy.

 

What does your perfect day look like?

Meditation, practice, School drop off, few hours of work with my dōTERRA team, a walk or run in the Park, pickup my boy and playtime either in the Park, the Met or home. Cooking dinner and taking it easy.

 

 

Do you have any daily rituals you use to center yourself?

Morning meditation and art creation, always! 

Yoga teacher Elena Bower talks about the daily rituals that keep her grounded in Motherhood and family practices that keep everyone connected when life gets busy.

 

How do you make time for  the different facets of your life?

I schedule self-care (at least 3 appointments per week: acupuncture, exercise, bath time, facial, IV vitamin drip. I like to take good care of myself. 

 

Do you have any special family rituals?

Bedtime, prayers, naming all the ancestors in my family and Jonah's Dad's family, and snuggling...

 

What is the best advice you have ever given or received about motherhood?

Nothing is personal. Stay neutral as much as you can, meaning - have an opinion but stay loving and caring.

Be fierce and clear when you must. Above all, be supportive and spacious. 

 

What is your favorite part of motherhood?

Definitely the daily chitchat... kids are so wise because they see so clearly through it all. I am granted new vantage points on things all the time thanks to those quotidian conversations... the veil is so thin for them.

"This mala is absolutely gorgeous and would make any mama feel powerful. The onyx is so strong and grounding, the sandalwood smells lovely, and I love that there is a little bit of rose quartz too! It’s nice to hold in your hand when you need to ground or calm down, and when you wear it, you feel like you can tackle anything! "
