The lessons we learn from children’s stories:
A chat with author Jenn Wint
In this week’s episode I am chatting with author Jenn Wint. This was such a fun conversation. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Jenn over the past year and I am honoured to be the first podcast to host this awesome mama!
Jenn recently published her first book, Josie’s Busy Calendar. While it may at first seem to be a kids’ book, it has a message that everyone needs to read. Josie is a little girl who loves spending time with friends and having a busy life, but starts to feel the “tummy knots” of overwhelm and anxiety. She learns the importance of taking some extra time for herself amongst all her activities.
Jenn and I talk about the realities of postpartum anxiety and Jenn shares how her own experience became the inspiration for her book. We talk about how self-care, setting boundaries, and finding ways to take time for yourself can be truly game-changing.
Sometimes the simplest stories can bring the most powerful lessons. We could all learn something from Josie!
