108 Yoga and Self-Care Practices for Busy Mamas
by Julie M. Gentile
MSI Press

"Mamas are human beings, not human doings, but many of us have become so accustomed to doing everything for everyone that doing has become a way of lifeā€”it has consumed our lives."

As readers make their way through this book, they discover key tips to maintaining their health and well-being. The book consists of 108 writing prompts accompanied by a "practice it" prompt that allows readers to engage their minds, spirits, and bodies in order to develop and maintain a holistic approach to their well-being. Readers discover chapters like "Just Be," "Ask for More Help More Often," and "Identify Who You Are and What You Want." Throughout the book, readers also discover insights that will help them incorporate a yoga routine into their daily lives. These insights are accompanied by easy-to-follow photographs and step-by-step instructions on how to execute the positions safely.

Gentile's book is directed toward a female audience. However, any reader whose busy life dominates their time and existence will find the information in this book helpful. The book's goal is to help readers develop and maintain healthy routines. Uniquely, the author shares her personal stories, which not only act as testimonies to the practices cited in this book but also create an invitation as well as a means of mutual understanding. The book reminds readers that "Mindfulness doesn't just happen on a yoga mat." It encourages readers to "slow down and be present" at all times. This book is a must-have companion for those seeking a guide that will help them re-center and re-focus. It is easily accessible for readers of all backgrounds and ages, and it will make them look forward to incorporating the book's message into their daily lives.
