FOR MOMS BY MOMS ABOUT MOMS
For the first time, new mothers can expect to find a book that is entirely devoted to smoothing out the rapid transition after delivery when creating a new family. This book, unlike many others, is focused on helping the new mom navigate all areas of care that a new arrival necessitates.
The chapters in this book emerge as five sections:
~ Mama Care, especially for the first six weeks after delivery (with yummy postpartum recipes from Traditional Chinese Medicine traditions)
~ Self Care, to give new moms permission to care for themselves (including essential oils and cultivating one's Mother Intuition)
~ Baby Care, to make motherhood easier for mama (e.g., cloth diapering made easy)
~ Home Care, for peaceful havens (indoors and out)
~ Family Care, for easing into parenthood with a significant other (including financial planning and adventures in multilingualism)
You asked for it. You have it. The sequel to the New Moms, New Families book is now out!

Whether you’ve just had a baby or you’re about to welcome your new little bundle into the world, you probably have a LOT of questions ...
I know I did! And I also know from first-hand experience with my three babies that one-size-fits all parenting doesn’t work. So this book is to help you find out what will work for you and your baby. I’ve included all the information and friendly advice I wish I’d been given before I became a mum for the first time, alongside the routines, shortcuts and tips that worked for me.
I hope this book will empower you during your first twelve months of parenthood to trust your own mummy intuition, and to care for your children in your own way – confidently and happily. We all have that intuition, we just need to learn to tune into it! With chapters on feeding, sleeping, wellbeing and lifestyle – as well as how to look after yourself – this book will equip you with all the know-how you need to get you through the sleepless nights and concerns, to all the magical first moments. It’s a collection of everything that worked for me as a new mum – and I hope it works for you, too.

Awaken is a book about mindfulness, and this leads to happiness. Awaken is showing how having mindfulness in your daily life will lead to a more happy and content life.
Having mindfulness in your life will not only create a happy mind, but you will experience stress reduction, improved memory, better focus, your emotional reaction to different negative situations will be less, and your relationships will greatly improve.
Mindfulness is about thinking less and being aware of everything around you, it is knowing without thinking, it is teaching you to let go of stress and anxiety. This results in a more relaxed and happier individual, because mindfulness teaches you to let go of negative emotions allowing you to live a free and happy life.
Awaken will teach you how to use mindfulness in your day to day life.
Our life, our feeling, and our emotion are all controlled by the mind, what we are thinking about is what we become, our emotional state is really a reflection of our mental state, our thoughts dictate our moods.
We are driven by the mind, by our thoughts and expectations and by our fear. Thinking tends to lead to less happiness, and over thinking means we are not really here, instead we are where our thoughts have taken us. Often we think about things in the past that upset us, other times we worry about what will happen in the future. The problem with thinking about past negative events is we continue to relive this, and the brain over time can actually make what happened far worse that it really was. The past is the past and cannot be changed so instead we should learn from this to prevent future problems rather than allowing what happened in the past to influence the present.
Instead of blaming and becoming bitter, we can learn and become better.
Awaken is showing you how to release past negative emotions that we often hold onto, and this will improve your happiness and self confidence. Also no one knows the future because it has not happened yet, and Awaken is showing you how to live today, free and happy. To be living in the past, reliving the emotion of what happened in the past, or worried about the future, is only creating unhappiness in the present.
Learning how to control the mind by learning to live in the ‘now’, learning to release attachment to things that influence our thinking and learning to ‘let go’, is the path to happiness.
Mindfulness is showing you how to live now, in the present, free and happy.
You will be happy and content in life and you will indeed feel at peace with yourself and your environment.
This book will lead you to True Happiness
