    A New Era of Morning Routines, Sleep, and Self-Care 

    A New Era of Morning Routines, Sleep, and Self-Care 

    Do you have a morning routine? This practice can be absolutely life changing - but can also feel so impossible when we have little kids. Rachel has been having such a hard time with sleep and parenthood lately that a morning routine - and a lot of self-care activities in general - have been absolutely impossible. In today’s episode, she discusses how to navigate your mornings in a way that works for you.
    Whatever phase you are at in parenthood, know that it is all fleeting. Our job is to take care of ourselves through all of life’s ups and downs the best we can, and cherish the special moments we have with our kids along the way. It won’t last forever.
    Maybe it’s time for a whole new era! One filled with sleep, self-care, and no guilt. And of course, Rachel also discusses her recent experience at the Taylor Swift concert. It’s a fun episode filled with transition. Tune in to embrace it all.

    Spring, Sleep, and a Day in the Life of Bear

    Spring, Sleep, and a Day in the Life of Bear

    For all mothers out there, today’s episode offers comfort, solidarity, and a true chance to build a village. Rachel and her family are celebrating spring after a long Swedish winter. Bear is taking in all the new things, the weather is beautiful, and the days are magical. However, nights are a different story. Rachel shares a day in the life of Bear; his sleep schedule, his nap schedule - and where things just keep falling apart. 
    For humans with little ones, motherhood is all consuming. It’s tiring, intense, and way too much - and also the most beautiful and precious time that we have. Rachel has been living in both worlds, and she discusses the duality of it all, and most importantly, the need for a village. Everything would be a lot easier if we held each other a little closer, and Rachel has a plan. Tune in to know you’re not alone.

    Becoming a Gym Person: Purpose, Strength, and a Shift In Perspective 

    Becoming a Gym Person: Purpose, Strength, and a Shift In Perspective 

    Whether you’re a gym person or not, today’s episode holds a beautiful message and some funny stories along the way. Rachel shares the surprising news that she has become… a gym person? She discusses the complicated relationship she has had with the gym in the past - stemming from serious body image issues, the gym used to be a place where she felt inadequate, awkward, and driven by her inner critic. 
    After a spiritual experience while strength training, she had a shift in perspective. Maybe you don’t need to take yourself so seriously in a place where others typically do. Maybe the gym can be a place where you find deep, internal self-love. And maybe, finding strength in your body brings it to other areas of your life as well. Tune in for an inspirational episode that will show you the magic of movement, strength, and doing things your way.

My favorite podcast!

I always look forward to Fridays to listen to a new episode. It’s chatty and really makes you think all at the same time. Been listening since day 1 and still loving it!

Postpartum episode resonated!

Rachel, your story and sharing of your life after baby #2 is so admirable. I love the way you are cherishing each moment of life. I’m 57, sons are 25 &23 and I, too, cherished every age and stage, no matter how difficult it can be at times! You pod this week really brought me back to that time in my motherhood. Love it!

Speaking feelings into reality

Rachael, your podcast is true and real. Todays episode on “Does it take a village to raise a child” spoke to my soul. You brought into existence the experience I felt with my son. There is so much expected of women and mothers in our society. How do we care for ourselves while carrying by so much? Starting with the question helps us all. May the next generation of mothers have a different experience. May they be supported to care for their children because they are cared for deeply by the people around them in helpful ways. May it be available to all women regardless of family situation or income. May our babies have the gift of mothers who are cared for. Thank you for your words and thoughts…you are exactly who the world needs exactly as you are.
