Day 4 of 12 Days of Stress Free

We’re going to roll right into some more organization tools after yesterday’s post about writing. Organizing can make or break my stress level. I briefly mentioned how if I fail to set aside time each week to plan out my week- everything just kind of falls apart. I’ve learned that there’s a right way to organize and there’s a wrong way. And just like with everything it takes practice. And trial and error and some really bad weeks to really see what needs to be tweaked. So I want to tell you not to get discouraged if this takes time- …

Day 3 of 12 days of Stress Free

To go along with reading from yesterday- let’s talk about the otherside: Writing As moms we probably all make lists of some sort. Maybe it’s post-it’s, maybe it’s old fashioned lists, maybe it’s on our phone or paper- but mom brain is real and in my world if I don’t write it down- then all hope is definitely lost in my world. Enter in where writing comes in handy. So I’m going to share two types of writing with you- each have different purposes. But they each matter greatly in my world. First: Writing Lists Writing lists make or break …

*post may contain affiliate links, I receive a small portion of the sale if you purchase any of the recommended books, but it costs you nothing- just helps me feed my kid* I love a good veg session- you know- laid up on the couch, in your PJs all day, without having anything to do?

But when I do get …

Day 1 of the 12 Days of Stress Free

In the beginning of my postpartum journey- there wasn’t much that made me calm down. My husband was deployed and I was learning to be a mother alone. But I had to control something- something needed to be tackled because I am a do-er- and if you have kids- you know very well- THEY DO NOTHING THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO. They’re super schedule destroyers and life suckers in the beginning- don’t hate me- you know I’m right.  This tiny infant invaded your body- was an alien inside of you- kicking you, making you sick, cramping your organs and when it came …

Manifesto

It’s about time for me to walk you through my manifesto- if you’ve been following me for any length of time, you see glimpses and pieces into my world- but what truly goes through my head? Where is my heart? What am I rooted in?  My first thought upon waking: How did I wind up with a kid who hates sleep? I didn’t think it was possible to be so exhausted 2.5 years later. #teamnosleep power right here. After peeling myself out of bed- It’s coffee, today I will drink my coffee warm. With my toddler running around trying to …

Cut Yourself Some Slack

I don’t know what it is with society these days but being overly tired, overscheduled, and overwhelmed is like a badge of honor. But the reality is few people ENJOY that high paced super busy life. I’m one of them. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE me some social time, but honestly- these days- we don’t even get dressed let alone leave the house because “burnout” is real my friends.   I recently posted on facebook about my daughter turning officially “30 months” (yeah, yeah I still take those monthly pictures)- basically it was my little mini vent about how …

Time Management and Why YOU Need it

I’m not sure why there isn’t a class truly devoted to “time management” skills in high school- but there should be. Maybe there is in some places, but I didn’t learn how to TRULY make the best use of my time and prioritize, time block, schedule, and task focus until well after college. And that honestly- is a shame. I feel as though my entire adult life so far has been trying to be more efficient. An old boss once chastised us for how we were working in our office saying we were operating on everything is an “emergency” when …

Practice Self Compassion

Why is it that we are so easy to bring ourselves down, but when other people go through the same thing we are- we meet them with compassion?  A mother snaps at her kid after the twelfth time they’ve told them “stop touching X”- but when we’re in the same situation and we beat ourselves up for house. Analyzing what we said and how it will ruin them and put a strain on your child/parent relationship. It’s because we place ourselves on this different pedestal- we are our toughest critics. We expect too much. We expect perfection. But here’s the …

Eat Something for Pete’s Sake

90% of the mamas I work with in my private coaching eat 1 maybe 2 meals a day. Hate to break it to you sweetheart, but 1 meal a day is NOT enough to sustain yourself.   24 hours are in a day, read that again 24 whole hours and your body cannot properly function on crumbs from your kids lunch, and one decent meal and 8 cups of coffee. Your body just doesn’t function like that. You may have tricked it after so much abuse- and saying things like “I’m not hungry when I wake up” or “I can’t …
