With just 20 minutes for meditation, you can be one of the most smiling, peaceful and approachable parents in the world. What if you could happily accept all the changes and enjoy this lovely phase of your life to the maximum? The body is undergoing hormonal changes so you could experience morning sickness, heartburn, constipation, or even feel dizzy at times. Shares Meghana Kalta, a daily meditator, “Yoga and meditation were my handy tools which helped me all through my pregnancy. The fetus is slowly growing – hair, nails, eyes, ears, vocal cords and muscles begin to take shape.
At this time, when your baby’s ears are developing, it’s a good idea to listen to chants or soft music, such as that of veena, and watch nice, pleasant movies. You can also try out a few yoga asanas (body postures) during the first two trimesters of your pregnancy. 1st month – drink cold milk, avoid sour and pungent food, and eat food that can be easily digested. 2nd month – Take small portions of nutritious food at short intervals through the day and avoid fruit juice as it may induce vomiting.
If you are feeling anxious or undergoing normal mood swings, sit for a few minutes in meditation, it helps settle the mind.
The baby now begins to move inside you and so you would feel those butterfly sensations within!
At this time when you are prone to mood swings quite often, your husband also needs to be prepared to handle these changes in you with patience and care.
Now that your baby can sense every emotion that you undergo, it’s extremely important for you to stay happy, relaxed and peaceful. Meditation not just relaxes the mind and helps deal at the emotional level but is also an excellent way to relax the body.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Yes, this meditation has been passed on to generations from thousands of years. Monica sighed as she sat heavily for a quick coffee and chocolate fix before the rush of after-school activities and household chores began. Do you feel that time is squeezed very tightly already and that the demands of family and work leave you with no time for yourself? You must have experienced at some point in your life that when you were full of joy and enthusiasm, there was no feeling of time pressure?

Tip – Have you seen how brushing teeth and bathing have become so much a part of our life that now we don’t really need to find time for it, we simply have time for it? Do you sometimes long for a holiday from the daily routine: getting a break from a difficult boss, a demanding schedule, and the constant clamor of people wanting something from you? Tip – The times you feel that you are too tired and exhausted, remind yourself that that’s when you need meditation the most (meditation is your favorite energy booster, right?). Is your life a chaotic cacophony of children screaming, TV blaring, and deadlines dropping in your in-box at any minute of the day? The good news is that as time goes by you will be able to meditate even in a noisy environment without getting disturbed. Tip - Meditating early in the morning is good, when everyone is asleep; it will keep you refreshed for the entire day. Do you feel you have limited time and the main thing you need to do to keep healthy, is physical exercise?
The solution is to have exercise and rest for the body but also plan to have exercise and rest for the mind. Meditation cultivates a happy and calm disposition and helps the thought processes to function at peak performance. Are you a parent juggling the care of your children while working to have financially security for them? If this is you, then obviously you love your children very much and want the best for them. Tip – Find a meditation buddy and look after each other’s children for “mother meditation time”.
Did you know that the things we turn to for short-term relief, such as chocolate, fried foods, and gossip, can bring long-term discomfort?
One of the best respites from the demands in your life is to have just 20 minutes of meditation to really relax and chill out.
It is really worth sticking with a commitment to be a regular meditator for long- term happiness and contentment.
Tip – Next time you take a break and are about to gorge on to something that you know might not be so healthy, just convert your little break into a 10-minute TOT (Time-Out Time) for yourself by meditating.
Sore eyes, out of the bed look, a stack of rough notes, sample test papers, and fresh stationary these describe the student gearing up for the exams. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of the Art of Living, says "Encourage children to be more energetic through proper food, physical exercise.
Meditation makes you feel free from within, makes you like a child, helps drop all the inhibitions, stiffness, concepts in the mind and shed all the barriers that you put on when communicating with others. If the mind vacillates between the past and the future, then it's not sharp enough in the present.
Anyone who has discovered anything or any creativity has sprung up in any mind is because it is already present in the field. Working out at the gym for long hours, training our taste buds to eat only healthy - you might have already tried all these and more to come back to good shape. If you are on a weight-control program, you might be keeping a regular check on your body’s basal metabolic rate (BMR). Have you noticed that the minute you stop working out for a few days, you immediately tend to put on a lot of weight? By practicing yoga and meditation, assimilation improves and desire for calorie-rich food decreases.
Excessive weight gain and weight loss are sometimes outcomes of hormonal imbalances in the body. Your craving for all kinds of food could be your biggest roadblock when it comes to losing weight. The next time you gorge on chocolates or anything junk, observe for a while why you are doing this?
If time is stopping you from working towards weight control, your all time solution – ‘meditation’ will help you find more time in the day!
