    Under Pressure

    Under Pressure

    Happy Wednesday Mother Lovers,

    The navy seals when asked why they train so hard always respond with the same answer:

    “we train hard because under pressure, you don’t rise to the occasion, you sink to your level of training”

    The saying is actually, “we don't rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training” as said by a greek philosopher.

    I think about this saying often and refer to it while I’m training for marathons.

    But when it comes to life and it’s challenges, can we train our brains to react and respond in new ways? Raise our level of sink and create a higher baseline?

    Especially if we aren’t prepared, let alone wired to respond optimistically?

    The answer is yes.

    The last few weeks have presented me with circumstances that have been out of my control. Most are, I know.

    However, it’s caused me to pause and reflect…

    The way I used to react vs now are two very different experiences.

    It’s the difference between reacting emotionally and remaining in victimhood to honoring my emotions but choosing my responses, repairing and moving on.

    I’m sharing the tools I’ve been using, how I’ve applied them to what’s been coming up and how I even taught my teenagers to use them in their formative years. ( I share specifically how I did this and why)

    Teaching our brains how to think critically when under pressure is a skill set that can be learned, but we have to practice ahead of time.

    It doesn’t end there; we may be able to develop the skill of handling our stressors, but are we dealing with the stress that builds up in our bodies and actively releasing it?

    Tune in today for my Mother Approved process and learn:

    A simple 5 Step Problem Solving Solution you can use next time you have a problem

    What Fear Setting is and how to do it

    Why your life depends on you releasing stress. I’m giving you 7 ways as taught by Emily and Amelia Nagoski from their book Burnout.

    Forward In (m)Other Words to your friends & share on social. We could all use a little mother loving coaching.

    Ep #11 Who Is Lauren? But First, A Parents Worse Nightmare

    Ep #11 Who Is Lauren? But First, A Parents Worse Nightmare

    This week Lauren and I wanted to take a moment to share with you how we met and why we chose to work together on this podcast. However, after hearing the news of the Uvalde Elementary School Shooting we felt the need to talk about the impact guns are having on our communities, overall psyche and the feeling of helplessness. 
    I have to believe that we as a society agree on more than we think, starting with our wellbeing and protection. Listen in as we discuss why we feel like we are being held hostage, the hypocrisy in thinking and that despite our different beliefs, we can do better for our children.

    Ep #9: Exploring Rape Culture

    In this episode, Lauren and I talk about rape culture, rape myths, and how we can educate people to take responsibility for their actions. We discuss the problem with saying “boys will be boys,” the harmful patriarchal messaging passed down for generations and ingrained into us as a society, and how we might be subtly contributing to this messaging.
