It’s time to connect to you and change your habits for good so you can break free from survival mode once and for all!

Are you tired of living day after day like you’re drowning in the responsibilities of motherhood, struggling finding the time and energy to ‘get it all done’, everyday?

Do you want to show an example of self control, calm, and perseverance to your little ones..but are so exhausted, which has your negative self talk on repeat, patience spread thin, and you feel like you’re losing yourself a little more everyday?

And the mom guilt, societal comparison, and unpredictability of motherhood isn’t helping in making a change?

In this podcast, you will get a simple and sustainable approach to break free from your survival mode,

- to help you overcome your mental and emotional ties to stress and overwhelm,
- to get your confidence, good mood, and energy back,
- and finally feel in control of your schedule.

All by identifying, and possibly simplifying, your habits.

It is my mission to help make the connection with moms that we can give our children and families the best, and not at the expense of our own health, self, and wellbeing. Moms shouldn’t have to choose between their family, priorities, and themselves, we can balance it all. And it all starts within ourselves.

There isn’t ever a one size fits all to overcoming our personal hardships, but I do believe there are a lot of parallels with how we show up to our lives. And common habits and strategies that we can make our own to live an intentional life full of peace, presence, confidence, clarity, and balance.

My passion is to teach moms how to think differently to see differently, and overcome struggle cycles with consistent, life long habits to live more, stress less, and take back control of your time, energy, identity, and life. I teach you The Balanced Mom Method Formula to do that, along with sharing relatable, inspiring, and empowering strategies to show you that this is possible for you to reach your breakthrough without sacrificing your precious time and mental load.

If you’re ready to say goodbye to just surviving and reclaim your life in motherhood, then you’re in the right place!

Hi, I am Jenna. A wife, mom, habit fanatic, empath, and homebody with my coffee in hand just trying to normalize the natural beauty of a messy bun and sweatpants.

I’ve been where you are though. I was consumed in the struggles of motherhood. I felt in a constant uphill battle, chasing the clock, drowning in the monotony, and was always in my head never feeling good enough. And I started to lose track of who I was because of giving my all to everyone and everything else in my life.

I realized if I wanted to make a change, it started within me. I paid attention to how I felt, what my triggers were, and what it was surrounding. My perspectives changed, feelings of fitting a societal mold were no longer important, and I felt a weight lifted.

I recognized that mastering three habits using the same I.A.S.I approach I created was how I broke free.

And now, I am here to help you do the same.

This podcast will take your hand and equip you with simple, yet deep-rooted mindset, time management, and health habits that can be used in any season of life to make an intentional, sustainable change.

If you are ready to weed the fluff, get to the root of cultivating real change, and finally feel like you again with do-able habits…let’s get to it.

    19 | Ready to crack the code and hack your motherhood survival mode? 20 simple time management tips to start implementing now to feel more in control and at peace with your days

    19 | Ready to crack the code and hack your motherhood survival mode? 20 simple time management tips to start implementing now to feel more in control and at peace with your days

    Isn’t it crazy that ‘normal’ is considered running around like a chicken with your head cut off? The terms ‘hot mess’, ‘messy bun’, ‘multi-tasker’ all correlate with ‘mom’. 
     
    I am not saying that I don’t call myself a hot mess sometimes, but that doesn’t mean that I am not intentional with keeping up with my life. If you personally know me, you probably know I am an organizer. Let’s not get that confused with being a good planner, though.. I’m not the most creative crayon in the box, and get anxious with a hard, strict schedule…but if there is one skill that has saved my life, it’s intentional organization. 
     
    But becoming a mom means gaining more responsibilities, never having a second to ourselves, becoming a multitasking, overstimulated rockstar who is being pulled in a million directions all the time but always manages to make it work…and all can be overwhelming, even for an organized person. The demands of life and motherhood can leave us feeling like we are spinning out of control. 
     
    So over the past 4 years, I have become super efficient at managing my time after becoming a work from home, stay at home mom. 
     
    Join me in today's conversation as I share 20 ways to manage your time to make your life easier.. to feel more in control of your days.. and to feel more peace and presence because you don’t feel you take 1 step forward and 3 steps back all the time. 
     
    Let's get to it..
    I pray this episode will grow and help you in some way. Sending my love and light,
    J

    14 | Feeling a holiday hangover and not sure where to start in the New Year? 10 tips on how moms can create consistency for a successful and fulfilling life

    14 | Feeling a holiday hangover and not sure where to start in the New Year? 10 tips on how moms can create consistency for a successful and fulfilling life

    A new year. Fresh slate. New beginning. New opportunities…but honestly, also just the next day on the calendar. Let me tell you a little something that those New Year Resolution gurus try to keep a secret….everyday is a new opportunity, mama. [ totally kidding about the gurus keeping secrets but NOT about the significance of believing that every single day is a new beginning. Not only January 1. Not only Monday. 
     
    Every single day.
     
    Now I am ALL ABOUT the energy of what a new year brings so let’s harness that…but I also believe the holiday burnout is real! We go from non stop go go go for a couple months to a brand new year with all this rah rah resolution talk… it can be debilitating not knowing where to even start.
     
    So grab your pen and post its, or have the notes ready on your phone because we are going to be getting real real on the power of consistency and how harnessing that power can help you have a successful and fulfilling year! Let's do this!
     
    I pray this episode will grow and help you in some way. Sending my love and light,
