Try some yoga

Get her out of the house and practice mindfulness with yoga. You can take a restorative yoga class to help rejuvenate both yourselves. Yoga can be just the right kind of relaxation she needs.

Alternatively, you can invite a yoga instructor to your mother’s very own backyard garden. Some garden yoga, surrounded by her very own crops will surely make her feel special.
