Today’s Super Women
By Nancy Weshkoff
On this Mother’s Day weekend, I would like to wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to the amazing women who are part of the Moonflower Yoga community. I am astonished by your strength and multi-tasking. With social distancing in place, many women face even more challenges: maintaining a busy career while tele-commuting, home schooling your children because the schools are closed, juggling household tasks, keeping a healthy relationship with a significant other, checking in on elderly, quarantined relatives using remote tools, etc.
And for those in the health care field who are sacrificing so much to help people in this crisis, they are superheroes! Thank you for everything you do to help those in need.
Life for many women today can be overwhelming. This is why it is so important to remember that you need to take care of YOURSELF first. If you don’t take care of yourself, there is no energy left to take care of the other responsibilities in your life. As flight attendants would say: In the event of an emergency, put the mask on yourself first and then put the mask on a child traveling with you.
During this coronavirus period of our lives, Moonflower Yoga is offering great 30-minute online yoga and meditation classes which you can do from the comfort of your living room. Giving yourself the gift of 30 minutes to relax, unwind, and stretch tired muscles with a great yoga teacher is a wonderful way to take care of yourself and reduce stress. You don’t need to be in Bellmore, Nassau County, or even Long Island to join us. You can be anywhere in the US and join us remotely. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to put on your super cape again.
Hope you have a great Mother’s Day!
