In today's show, Episode 29, we enjoy a lovely conversation with Christa Melnyk Hines.

Christa is an award-winning freelance journalist, author and connection expert. Through her books, articles, blog and newsletter she inspires today’s busy families to grow happier and stronger through healthy, meaningful connection.

Christa is the author of Happy, Healthy & Hyperconnected: Raise a Thoughtful Communicator in a Digital World , a guide for parents interested in nurturing a versatile set of social skills in this generation’s digitally-charmed kids. She is also the author of Confidently Connected: A Mom’s Guide to a Satisfying Social Life , which helps moms build and sustain a thriving, balanced social life that supports their emotional health.

This is a great show focused on dealing with technology and how you can create deep and meaningful connections with your family.  We love Christa's practical and powerful tips on how to take mindful breaks from your devices, like connecting together in the family room, taking a weekly digital sabbath or creating "no phone zones" in your home.

Christa inspires you to look at your own life and see how you use technology, as your children are modeling your behavior.  We also explore the importance of friendships, and how invaluable it is to nurture connections with women, both online and in person.

You will feel excited to try some of her great tips as you continue deepening the connections with your family and friends.

Om Podcasten

Welcome to the Mindful Mama Movement Podcast! Shannon Kinney-Duh, creator of A Free Spirit Life, and Ashley Walburn, owner of Home Holistic, are bringing you the Mindful Mama Movement - a podcast, community and retreats that empower mamas, encourage authentic living and celebrate living an inspired life. Join us as we bring women together from around the world - in all stages of motherhood - on a journey of learning how to trust ourselves, how to listen to our intuition, how to let go and forgive and how to embrace imperfection in the mess of life. We are practicing mothering from a place of power, presence, creativity, humor and wisdom. This is a place to be nurtured and cared for while you nurture and care for others. We are so happy you are here.
