S01E08: Parent/Caregiver, Cultivate Inner Peace With a Meditation

A guided meditation for parental wellbeing

Thank you for listening to The UnCommon Momma Podcast. This episode is public so feel free to share it.


In case you’ve noticed the brighter (pink) look of things around here and wondered what the special occasion was, know that I finally decided to go through with a complete re-brand of my publication here after debating with myself about it for many, many weeks. You are now enjoying an entry from UnCommon Momma. “The Cheniece Circular” is now a vestigial presence only. The re-brand even comes with a pretty, pink new membership-style front page site at the custom domain www.UnCommonMomma.com. All the work, design, and setup of my own two hands, might I add. You learn these digital things when you have no personal or work life and stay at home with the kids everyday — as if that doesn’t equate to a real career…

Anyways, onward.

Show Notes

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives as parents, it's easy to get swept away by the demands and challenges that come our way. As autism parents, we often find ourselves juggling multiple responsibilities, navigating complex emotions, and striving to provide the best possible care for our children. In the midst of this whirlwind, it's essential to take moments of pause and self-care to nurture our own wellbeing.

That's why I'm thrilled to introduce you to a new offering here at UnCommon Momma: a guided meditation for parental wellbeing. This meditation is designed to help you cultivate a sense of inner peace, relaxation, and clarity amidst the chaos of daily life. Whether you're feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or simply in need of a moment of tranquility, this meditation is here to support you.

In this guided meditation, you'll be gently led through a series of mindfulness exercises, deep breathing techniques, and visualization practices to help you connect with your inner self, release tension, and tap into a profound sense of calm and contentment. By tuning into your breath, opening your heart, and embracing the present moment, you'll be guided towards a state of deep relaxation and inner peace.

I invite you to carve out a few moments of quietude in your day to experience this meditation for yourself. Find a comfortable space where you won't be disturbed, put on some soothing music, and allow yourself to fully immerse in the practice. Whether you're a seasoned meditator or brand new to the practice, this guided meditation is accessible to all, offering a sanctuary of serenity amidst the chaos of life.

Remember that self-care isn't selfish—it's a vital act of nourishment and rejuvenation that allows us to show up as our best selves for our loved ones. So, take this opportunity to prioritize your own wellbeing and give yourself the gift of inner peace.

Wishing you all moments of tranquility, joy, and self-discovery on your journey.
