    12. Chit-Chat: Balancing Mental Load Within Relationships

    12. Chit-Chat: Balancing Mental Load Within Relationships

    Do the phrases "Tell me if you need me" or "Let me know if I can help" immediately give you a stress response? Ever find yourself so overwhelmed with invisible tasks that you can't think straight or express what needs to be done? What you're experiencing here is called "Mental Load"- the invisible and cognitive sister of "Work Load".



    Imbalanced Mental Load is a concept common to couples, but a phrase unfamiliar to many. We wrestled with tension for years within our relationship before we stumbled across this framework that has transformed the way we navigate responsibility within our household.

    This week we explore what "Mental Load" is, how it might be playing out within your relationship and some practical ways in which you can start navigating this imbalance with your partner.
