Why Amiga Moms?

Research published in the Journal of Child and Family Studies has found Latina mothers experience higher rates of parenting-related stress than white, non-Latina mothers.  Consequently, additional supports and stress-relievers, such as understanding and implementing a mindfulness practice, are beneficial to reducing stress.

 

There is also research stated by the American Psychological Association that mindfulness has the following empirically supported benefits: 

  • Stress reduction

  • Boosts to working memory

  • Focus

  • Less emotional reactivity

  • More cognitive flexibility

  • Relationship satisfaction

  • Enhancement of self insight, morality and intuition

Amiga Moms will reap many benefits such as:

  • Networking and support from other 21st Century Latina mothers

  • Knowledge on mindfulness and its benefits

  • Practical mindfulness exercises to implement and practice

Hardworking mothers need Amiga Moms and deserve some time for themselves!  After all, "Mindful Mamis = Happy Families."
