Moms are in a no-win situation when it comes to how we spend our time. When we’re choosing between activities with kiddos or time focused on our grown-up priorities, we get a guilt trip no matter what we choose. We’re told to make everyone else happy at the expense of our own happiness and health, even though it’s not physically possible.

How do we get out of this trap? By refusing to accept the guilt, and turning the tension caused by failing to meet these impossible standards into an opportunity for growth. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  1. The competing social pressures that force us into mom guilt (and why they’re all BS)
  2. How to embrace the strain of mom guilt and reframe it as a chance to expand your capacity. 
  3. Why having healthy boundaries around your time is a win for both you and your kids.

And much more!
