Mindful Parenting: Being a Happier Mom

Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo, author of A Happy You: Your Ultimate Prescription for Happiness, wants to share three of her top tips in how to be a happier mom.

1)    Jump on the bed: dance around the house, race your kids to the car.  Any type of exercise will boost your happiness
2)    Be assertive: don’t wait for your children or partner to ask how they can help.  Delve out the responsibilities
3)    Be grateful for all that you do and all the positives in your life.  Research shows that gratitude is the quickest and longest lasting way to achieve happiness

Elizabeth Lombardo, PhD, MS, PT is a clinical psychologist and physical therapist who helps people overcome stress and reach happiness, regardless what is going on in their lives. Dr. L elaborates on the idea that happiness is not something that is found, but rather a skill that needs to be worked on and correctly applied before an individual may reach that fulfillment. Although this idea is applied to all aspects of being happy, Dr. L focuses on helping specific individuals find happiness in a way that is accustomed to their personal lives.
