In this episode of the Mom Life Handbook, we’re diving deep into a topic that hits home for so many of us: how to be a calm parent. For all the busy millennial moms out there who sometimes feel they’re on a hair-trigger, who feel like they’re not handling stressful situations with their preschoolers or elementary-aged children as well as they’d like, this one’s for you.
We start off by shedding light on our own nervous system, understanding how it impacts our reactions, and how we can take charge of it. You’ll be amazed at how this simple understanding can significantly shift the way you navigate your mom life.
Then we’ll move on to practical techniques like deep breathing, something you can easily fit into your busy schedule. This isn’t your typical advice; we’re talking about using compassion to navigate tense moments and asking ourselves two crucial questions that can change the dynamics of our interactions. We’re also going to be brutally honest about the importance of taking a break. As busy moms, sometimes we see this as a luxury, but in reality, it’s a necessity for us to show up as the best version of ourselves for our kids.
This isn’t just about providing tips; it’s about creating lasting change in your life. And trust me, the change is not just possible, it’s attainable. Remember, you’re not alone in this journey. So, join me in this episode, and let’s embark on this journey together towards becoming calmer, happier parents.
