I’m on vacation with my family this week (yay!). In lieu of a longer post, I’d like to share some of what I’m reading with you:

Here are some writers that keep me thinking about mindful living and mindful parenting:

Sarah Rudell Beach over at Left Brain Buddha

Lindsey Mead over at A Design So Vast

Nina Badzin’s quest to cut down on her cell phone time

 

Here are the books I’m reading or have recently finished (some are about parenting, but not all):

Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety by Judith Warner (This should be required reading for every parent, but especially mothers!)

Momma Zen by Karen Maezen Miller (Gorgeous essays by a mother and Zen Buddhist Priest)

Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers by Anne Lamott (Or any of her books – they’re all truly amazing explorations of humanity and finding our way back to the present)

I’m always looking for new reading suggestions – especially blogs. What are you reading? What writing inspires you to stay present and mindful, in parenting and in the rest of life?
