BBL 025: Why Taking a Few Minutes of You-Time Makes You a Better Mama

You'd give everything for your kids, your family, and your loved ones. But if you never take time for yourself, you quickly run out of what there is of you to give. In this podcast episode I cover some simple strategies that literally only take minutes – and help renew and refresh you to be the calm, joyful mom you want to be.

In this episode I cover:

  • Why you need to take time for yourself
  • Parts of yourself you're probably ignoring (and why you shouldn't)
  • How caring for yourself doesn't have to take a lot of time
  • How making intentional habits to care for yourself makes you a better mom
  • What I'm doing right now to use my own advice!
  • Ideas on how you can adapt and design your own “mini-breaks” throughout your day
  • Why I'm so excited about the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle (and how YOU can get your own bundle)
