    Conflicted to Centred: Creating a Centred Vision For Your Life (Part 1)

    We all have a lot going on as mamas. I’ve been there, feeling overwhelmed and conflicted, and like I couldn’t possibly keep all these balls in the air and maintain my sanity at the same time.
    That’s why in this episode, I’m talking about how we can go from being overwhelmed and conflicted, to feeling aligned and centred.
    I’ll be diving into the first step towards a centred life from what I’ve learned on my personal journey - from sobbing in the shower to feeling like I had some balance in my life.

    The Good News About Bad Behavior with Katherine Reynolds Lewis

    The Good News About Bad Behavior with Katherine Reynolds Lewis

    We could all use some good news about bad behavior, right? Katherine Reynolds Lewis is here to give that good news to all parents who have ever struggled with bad behavior, and let’s be honest: that’s every single one of us. She spent five years trying to understand kids’ bad behaviour and she’ll be sharing the reasons why it’s not your imagination that there is more “bad behavior” now than in previous generations, why our kids are absolutely experiencing a crisis in self-regulation, what happens in a child’s brain when they are yelled at or shamed, and so much more!

    The #1 word I hear from Mamas is: CONFLICTED
    Do you know that feeling?
    If you’re great at work, you’re not the mom you want to be, if you’re focused on your kids, your work begins to suffer, and somewhere in all of this, the time you spend on your partner, friendships, relatives, chores...and (maybe you) all feel at odds with one another.
    Can you relate?
    As modern moms we’re skilled at juggling it all, but keeping all those balls in the air can leave us drained and burnt out.
    There's a better way.
    How You Ask?
    The Change Happens When You Build a Life That’s: CENTERED
    Come Join Me for the one-day Centered Mamas Live Retreat on January 30th. Me, along with a host of experts and thought leaders will educate you on building and achieving a Centered Life where you are spending more time on what matters most to you and freeing up time spent on tasks/household duties and chores.
    We will also create YOUR very own centered life blueprint and learn how to live according to what matters most to you.
    This retreat will give you the tools and inspiration to be the kind of mom you want to be.

    The Mom Project with Colleen Curtis

    Do you ever feel like you are being forced to choose between your family and your career? Colleen Curtis, Chief Community Officer at the Mom Project, joins me today to discuss how they are working towards a future where women no longer have to choose. The Mom Project is a digital marketplace that connects family-friendly employers who ”get it” with moms who are looking for more work-life balance without the guilt. Colleen will share how the Mom Project is working towards building a better future, what the research shows when it comes to working moms on a variety of different fronts, and what silver linings have come from the COVID-19 pandemic for working moms.

    Mindful Mamas Club with Carina Devi

    Mindful Mamas Club with Carina Devi

    I talk about mindfulness and mindful self-compassion a lot on the Mindful Mommy Doc Podcast, but today we’re going deep into what mindfulness really is and how we can all weave it into our daily lives with Carina Devi. We’ll not only be diving into how mindfulness can help us get unstuck from the mental loops we sometimes find ourselves in, help us savour the magic of motherhood, and make mindfulness a part of our lives, but Carina is also sharing a short meditation to give you a taste of what you can expect from the Mindful Mamas app.
