Mom guilt has become a real thing in our society, but as prevalent as it all may seem, here’s the thing that no one acknowledges about it:

It’s kind of a sham.

And as my friend Raena Joy at The Working Momtras likes to point out: the idea of doing it all is also a sham.

It’s all a sham because it’s not helping or serving anyone - on an individual or societal level.

“But Bridget, you’re not a mother. You have no idea how something like motherhood can be so impactful on a person’s life.”

You are absolutely right about that.

And while I’m not a mother, I have witnessed the impact of mom guilt on many people in my life: friends, family, neighbors, clients. And as a coach, I know research shows that feeling guilty does nothing for changing our behavior. Instead, it gives more power to the part of the brain that seeks gratification - and we all know where that vicious cycle leads.

It leads us down a road where we trade realizing our health, performance, or overall life potential for empty dopamine hits.

I also know that no amount of empathy or knowledge can replace lived experience.

And that is one of many reasons why I had Certified Holistic Health Coach and busy mom of two boys, Ali Naglee, on the show today.

Ali understands the frustration of feeling like there is more out there and overwhelming feeling of not knowing where to turn to first.

But she also understands that learning how to make small, healthier choices for you and your family will cause a ripple effect beyond measure in all of your lives.

That’s her mission in working with clients, especially busy moms: provide them with the tools necessary to feel in control of their health and happiness for when things are good and when they get thrown a curveball.

Here’s a brief overview of the episode:


[02:29] Ali’s background and how her own journey through motherhood led her to coaching
[07:55] Being a role model of self-care to our children
[17:55] How to create a work-life balance
[20:45] The misconception of balance and the importance of having a season mentality when looking at your life
[25:00] Values and how Ali lays the foundation with her clients
[34:32] Embracing challenges and struggles and how Ali helps clients navigate obstacles
[46:24] Ali’s 5-Day Reset program
[60:02] The importance of self-care when it comes to our health and fitness
[70:23] Eating healthy doesn’t mean you’re going to be starving yourself or that you can’t eat delicious and comforting foods
