Mindful Parenting is a new magazine by mindfulness and wellbeing publisher Lovatts Media, which aims to nourish those who nurture.
Mindful Parenting invites its readers to slow down, take a well-deserved moment for themselves, and explore who they are, in and outside of being a parent. With five pillars – Wellbeing, Relationships, Self-Care, Balance, and Joy – Mindful Parenting takes a calm and considered approach to life as a parent.
Available now at www.LovattsMagazines.com.au/MindfulParenting or in newsagents and supermarkets from 1 July 2019, Mindful Parenting features editorial about easy self-care practices like yoga and meditation, building and nurturing relationships, exploring emotional intelligence and resilience, cultivating gratitude and embracing “imperfection”, and coping with the often-unrealistic expectations placed on parents in the modern world. There are also joyful activities for both parents and children, like mindful colouring, memory making in the kitchen, and hands-on crafts for creating tangible keepsakes to treasure.
Contributors include Maggie Dent, Shevonne Hunt, Rebecca Sparrow, Amy Taylor-Kabbaz, Sarah Napthali, and Cassandra Dunn.
“Parenting is a tough gig. It’s wonderful, challenging and fulfilling but it can also test the limits of your resilience. Mindful Parenting is a beautifully crafted magazine, which can help parents find their own equilibrium. The stories are heartfelt and genuinely helpful for anyone who is seeking more calm and steadiness in their parenting life. But really, I love writing for Mindful Parenting because I’m writing articles that I need to read myself!” said podcaster and Mindful Parenting contributor Shevonne Hunt.
Like all Lovatts Media titles, the publisher said Mindful Parenting will feature only a small selection of advertisers with aligned values. “Lovatts Media’s ethos is to only recommend like-minded brands that we know, use and trust. We want to promote companies that share our collective belief in conscious and ethical living,” said Kirsty Tamplin, senior account manager at Lovatts Media.
“As the world awakens to the benefits of living more consciously, Lovatts Media has been at the forefront of mindfulness and wellbeing publishing with titles such as Breathe Magazine Australia, Teen Breathe Magazine, Audrey Daybook, nourish plant-based living and Inklings. Our magazine titles are built on the idea of inspiring our readers to create their best lives. We know that Mindful Parenting will be a beautiful and gentle reminder to all those incredible parents out there to treat themselves more kindly,” said publisher and Lovatts Media CEO Rachael Northey.
Mindful Parenting is a bi-monthly lifestyle title published by Lovatts Media and will be available in newsagents, Coles and Woolworths supermarkets from Monday, 1 July 2019.
