It seemed like a simple exercise. Registered Family Counselor Ichel Alignay asked the participants of Mommy Mundo's Mindful Mom Re-Treat to take out their bottles of hand sanitizer. Like clockwork, the moms spritzed the product onto their hands and were done in mere seconds. Ichel asked the moms to spritz on the product again, but this time with more mindfulness. She asked them to smell the scent of the product and feel its texture by massaging it onto their hands. And the moms were thoroughly amazed at how a simple routine can make them feel so good when done mindfully. [embed]https://www.flickr.com/photos/126038582@N02/2791412193[/embed]

Learning about mindfulness is fun!

A community event focused on refreshing, re-energizing, and re-centering modern mamas, the Mindful Mom Re-Treat not only leads moms towards being more mindful of their thoughts, words, and actions, it also gives them a more insightful knowledge of themselves, allowing them to identify the things most important to them as well as the factors hindering them from achieving their life goals.

The second Mindful Mom Re-Treat took place at Earth Kitchen in BGC last May 28, 2016 with the help and cooperation of various partners including Caltrate Plus, Pampers, and Belo Baby. Mommy participants took home an exclusive bag made by Monogram Style PH filled with goodies from Botanicals in Bloom, Photobook, Urban Ashram, The Brow Studio, Fisher Price, National Bookstores, Morrison, Mommy Treats, Bio-Oil, Clearascar, and Sfera.
