We’re all overwhelmed at times. Between a career, personal life, and family, finding time for yourself can seem impossible, with an infinite to-do list. Shonda Moralis has been there—and developed a solution. Here are over fifty five-minute “mindful breaks” that help you find energy at any moment: while getting dressed, commuting, or drinking coffee.
  • Breathe mindful breaks promote calm and awareness.
  • Becoming mindful breaks prevent limiting beliefs and boost your confidence.
  • Balance mindful breaks help you craft the life you want.
Don’t Forget to Breathe allows you to take time for yourself while doing everything else.

“A healthy salve of compassionate encouragement to help women step back from hectic, overloaded agendas. . . . Readers wanting to find simple ways to bring mindfulness into their lives will find this empathetic, enjoyable guide to be a beneficial tool.”Publishers Weekly

“This book reminded me of my dad’s advice: Steer into the skid. Shonda Moralis is amazing. She knows that balance doesn’t come from a magic eraser that leaves you ohming in some silent, gardenia-scented space; it comes from paying attention to the chaos and clutter, to what’s happening, to what matters. Plus, she lets you meditate while you’re drinking coffee, so there’s that, too.”—Catherine Newman, author of Waiting for Birdy and Catastrophic Happiness

“[This book] beautifully captures the importance of self-compassion for all women. Rather than adding one more thing to our to do lists­, Moralis helps us cultivate a wise and powerful way of being as we move through each moment of our day.”—Shauna Shapiro, PhD, professor of counseling psychology and author of Good Morning, I Love You
“This book is what we all need. Apply these practices and start being present in your busy life—and find joy.”—Lisa Druxman, founder of FIT4MOM

“We all need that friend who believes in us and stands with us as we pursue our dreams. In [this book] Shonda is that priceless friend. With powerful, yet gentle words she reminds us of the necessity of balance, helps us examine our dreams, and inspires us to breathe in the midst of life.”—Rachel Marie Martin, author of The Brave Art of Motherhood
