New way of life

I’m addicted to mindful mama. I got more out of one episode of this podcast than 8 weeks of therapy. Honestly incredible guests and perspectives that have helped me make a 180 change in my life. I love listening to this podcast it helps me realize and answer hard questions within myself as well as feeling like I am part of a community of people who have the same stuff on their plate. If I could rate 10/5 I would.

Very helpful and informative

I started listening to this podcast last year. I think. But I have learned so much from Hunter and she’s helped me transform more parenting into a more peaceful one. Some days are better than others but I’m grateful for this podcast that I can turn to when I need to be brought back to peaceful and mindful parenting. Thank you Hunter!
