Minimalist Parenting, The First Year

What do you really need for the first year with your baby? Not much at all! Your baby will be happy to stare at you and explore their surroundings, we really tend to overthink what our children need and want. Bright, flashing lights and hard plastics aren't the best materials for babies, let alone older kids. When you start to create your baby registry, consider what will add to your day-to-day life.

Y is for Yoga

Yoga is my favorite form of exercise, and while everyone's preference for physical activity is different, I wanted to share a bit about the practice and why I love and teach it. Yoga combines active poses with mindful breathing, teaching you how to fully use your breath during times of stress to relax. Learning how to mindfully use your breath is incredibly useful for labor, and can even help with stress and anxiety in day to day life.
