Mind

Having the mental energy, the clarity, and focus to manage everything that happens in the daily life of a busy mom is a massive task.

And what about the confidence to not only manage the day to day and the challenges of parenting, but to go after your dreams as well? With the comparison game on social media and the Pinterest pressure to be Super Mom, it's no wonder it can get overwhelming.

Take it slow. Introducing self-care can go a long way to reducing stress and helping life feel more manageable. But then let's go deeper. What's behind the stress or overwhelm? What could you do to work through that? A few intentional practices each week could significantly change how you approach your days and your life. Gratitude, confidence, mindfulness, they are all buzz words but when you dig in and apply them as daily activities, the only thing "buzzy" about it will be your amazing energy and spirit.
