In her new book coming Oct. 17, Mindful Parenting Educator Michelle Gale shows parents how to find ease in the midst of family mayhem

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, October 11, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Being a parent is difficult, stressful and messy: getting kids to bed at night and off to school in the morning, breaking up sibling fights, struggling to balance work and family. And there are those messy feelings: unappreciated, misunderstood, guilty and inadequate. Mindful Parenting Educator Michelle Gale has been there. Working at Twitter and other high-tech start-ups while raising two sons, she felt all these emotions. Then she found an answer that parents often miss in the mayhem: being present in each moment.

That simple shift – learning to embrace life in the moment, especially when it is messy, is at the heart of Michelle’s new book, “Mindful Parenting In A Messy World – Living With Presence And Parenting With Purpose.”

Coming Oct. 17, “Mindful Parenting in a Messy World” is a guidebook that teaches busy, stressed out parents how to become more present with themselves and with their children. Through Michelle’s engaging and often funny personal stories, parents discover practical ways to:

– Meet conflict with compassion and curiosity
– Recognize family as a catalyst for personal growth
– React less and connect more
– Grow their capacity for self-awareness, humor and love
– Find ease in the midst of family mayhem

Michelle is on a mission to help parents stay connected to themselves and their families, even as the demands and complexities of life are accelerated. A highly sought speaker for corporations, schools and communities, she specializes in helping parents break habits that aren’t helping their families, and find greater compassion, forgiveness and presence through mindfulness.

Unlike many parenting experts, Michelle focuses on helping parents be more present rather than “fixing” kids. Parents who take time to get to know themselves, understand their inner world and become more aware are better able to care for their children and model lessons kids need to learn for their own happiness through life. Michelle calls this approach “sowing the seeds of transformation in our kids.”

A mindfulness educator, corporate trainer, executive coach and podcast host, Michelle holds a master’s degree in psychology and a bachelor’s degree in child development. Formerly the head of learning and leadership development at Twitter, she now works in schools, communities and corporations, teaching parents to free themselves from stress by embracing the messiness of life.
