Mountain High Moment- Brought To You By Mountain High Yoghurt

Mountain High Moment

When was the last time you sat down and thought about what brings you joy? As busy moms, our minds are often so consumed with all of the things that “need” to get done, we forget to think about the moments that truly make life worth living. Everyone has something they can do that lifts them up, tickles their soul and makes them feel alive- their Mountain High Moment! Maybe your’s is listening to a special song, spending quality time with your family, or taking time for yourself to do something you love…think about it!

Defining my Mountain High Moment was a lot harder than I thought it would be. There are many things that bring me joy- spending time with family, working in the garden, attending Mom’s Night Out, date nights with the dear husband, breastfeeding, volunteering, and the list goes on. How could I possibly choose just one? And then it hit me. There is one thing that brings tears to my eyes, fills my heart with joy, and represents the true meaning of life itself. Working as a birth doula, and helping a new life enter the world as gently and peacefully as possible is definitely my Mountain High Moment!

Taking the time to dig deep, reflect and define my Mountain High Moment was really an awesome exercise in self discovery. I haven’t worked or volunteered as a birth doula in nearly two years, and yet I discovered it’s what brings me my Mountain High Moment! That just goes to show how we can get so busy we completely lose sight of the things we are passionate about, and the things that bring so much joy into our lives. Now that I realize how much joy I’ve been missing out on, I’m definitely going to find time to volunteer at the birth center at least a couple times a year!

One thing I’ve always admired about Mountain High Yoghurt is their desire to help people live well. Eating yogurt filled with live active cultures, and no artificial ingredients or growth hormones can certainly contribute to your physical well-being; however Mountain High Yoghurt knows mental wellness is equally important too. Discovering your Mountain High Moment is a great way to nurture your emotional well-being, and make a conscious effort to focus on the sources of joy you may not have experienced for quite some time.

So now it’s your turn! I know you’re busy, and sure it sounds kinda cheesy, but I challenge you to take a few minutes to sit down and define your Mountain High Moment right now. What lifts you up and makes you feel good? Maybe you do it every day, or maybe you haven’t done it in years- it can be anything!

Once you define your Mountain High Moment, please take a moment to leave a comment and share!

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mountain High Yoghurt. I received a gift card to purchase yogurt, a product kit, and a promotional item to thank me for participating.” All opinions are my own.

    I cant remember the last time I had a moment to think period..but I do enjoy everything that I do..

  2. Hmm…. my mountain high moment… I’m not even sure what it is. I guess getting my research paper published was a pretty big deal. Graduating from college was a pretty big deal too, but I think I’m like you and need to reconnect with mine. I have a lot of giant life goals though, so it’s possible that I haven’t even found mine yet.

    Good for you though for being a birth doula! I think that’s a great thing to do.

  3. I bet helping to bring a child into this world would definitely be a mountain high moment. That seems really interesting. My mountain high moments are helping others especially mothers. That is why I started my blog (www.hippyfitmom.com). I wanted to share my experiences (ups and downs) with other moms. I love health and fitness and that bring me joy. I currently work in an office and I found that I have had less time for things that bring my joy. The little time that I have left in my day is spent with doing things that bring me joy (my family and my blog). The majority of my day is spent doing something that does not bring myself joy. I hope to be able to change that one day though. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I need to think a bit on this… I mean there was giving birth, but there are a lot of my passions that have gone to the wayside for now. Like writing short stories…

  7. Mine would probably be the moment I realized what I really wanted to do with my life. After going to school, getting married and having kids I was kind of at a loss about what I really wanted to do. Now that I have a goal and a plan I know I will succeed!

    Working as a birth doula really IS a Mountain High Moment! I’d have to say that my Mountain High Moment was deciding to stay home with my baby. We had to give up so many luxuries but it’s sooo worth it! Hopefully I can find another Mountain High Moment when I return to work… Mountain High Yoghurt seems very thoughtful!
