How (and Why) I Learned to Find My Calm
Hi, there! Just in case you didn't know, I'm Jamie, and I'm the founder of Black Mom's Guide to Calm, and I work with mamas (and women) who are tired of being burned out, stressed out, and worn out and are ready to do something about it. I teach them how to overcome their overwhelm and create calm in the chaos of their daily lives.
HOW I GOT HERE:
I began this path back in 2014 after having my daughter, Nailah. As a new mama, I was stressed out, overwhelmed and dealing with some postpartum depression. I felt I didn't have the help I needed from my then-husband. It. Was. A. Lot.
Truthfully, I actually started doing yoga to tone my body and "snap back" (don't judge me). But the more I practiced, I noticed how much calmer and centered I felt. Yoga led me to a starting a consistent meditation practice as well.
Yoga, meditation, affirmations, affirmations and journaling literally changed my life (as cliché as it might sound).
Through these practices, I stress less, and I know how to better manage my anxiety, it's helped me stay present and to live in the moment (allowing me to worry less), and go with the flow.
And perhaps most importantly, I now realize that everything happens when and how it's supposed to happen, so I don't need to rush and obsess with trying to make things happen.
And when I have moments of stress and overwhelm, I'm able to tap into my inner peace more quickly and easily.
My mission and my purpose is to help you do the same.
