    018: 6 Tips to Reduce the Mental Load as a Mom

    In this insightful episode, Yasmine dives into practical strategies aimed at helping mothers navigate the challenges of motherhood, while lightening their mental load. 
    Yasmine provides 6 actionable tips designed to empower mothers to manage the mental load more effectively. 
    Sharing personal experiences and focusing on self-compassion, adaptability, and recognizing that the journey of motherhood involves constant change. 
    In this episode:
    Here are her 6 tips to reduce the mental load for moms:
    1. Prioritize and Let Things Go: Encouraging mothers to prioritize tasks, say no more often, and be selective about opportunities. The emphasis is on understanding that not everything has to be done, and letting go of non-essential tasks can absolutely lighten the mental load.
    2. Focus on Delegation within Your Family: Discussing the importance of involving family members, including children and spouses, in household responsibilities. Delegating tasks and allowing others to contribute fosters a sense of teamwork and shared responsibility.
    3. Create Organizational Systems: Highlighting the power of having structured systems in place, such as family calendars, written plans, and daily routines. These systems reduce the mental effort required for day-to-day tasks, making it easier to manage responsibilities.
    4. Embrace Technology: Leveraging technology to simplify tasks, from grocery shopping apps to budgeting tools. The use of technology is presented as a way to streamline processes and reduce the need for manual effort.
    5. Get Support: Recommends seeking help when needed, whether through hiring services like housekeepers or delegating specific responsibilities to others. Emphasizes that support can significantly alleviate the mental load.
    6. Prioritize Self-Care and Time Management: Encourages mothers to include themselves in their priorities, practicing self-care and effective time management. Acknowledging that taking care of oneself positively impacts the ability to handle daily responsibilities with enthusiasm and energy.
    Your challenge today is to start with one of these tasks. Do a brain dump of what is nagging you and start there!

    016: The Best Non-Toxic Toy Brands: Are Your Child’s Toys Safe?

    016: The Best Non-Toxic Toy Brands: Are Your Child’s Toys Safe?

    ons/all-products Learning about the world of non-toxic toys is especially important for young children's developing bodies. Toxic chemicals can harm brain and organ development, so you need to understand which common chemicals to avoid in toys and what some safer alternatives are. 
    In the latest episode of The Non-Toxic Mommy Podcast, Yasmine explains why we need to be careful about chemicals in toys, especially for babies. Their developing bodies are more sensitive! 
    Yasmine explains everything about nasty toxins, from BPA to flame retardants. And how about those light-up toys keeping the baby awake? Not a good idea.
    Luckily, there are safer materials. Wood is excellent, and organic cotton is perfect for stuffies, too. Silicone and natural rubber toys can work in a pinch.

    The best part is you don't need to toss everything overnight. Just slowly replace toys with quality wooden and natural items. Fewer toys means more focused play!

    This episode will nudge you in the right direction. Your kids will thank you later for making safer choices now. 

    “I think it's so wonderful that you are here with me, learning about the importance of non-toxic toys, thinking about this while your kids are little because this is when we can make that change. This is when we can really impact their future development just by helping them avoid some of the lore of, like, mainstream toys."  ~ Yasmine Moussa

    013: Easy Ways to Detox - Part 2

    Yasmine paints a vivid picture of how, in your quest for vitality, you can support your body through gentle, everyday detox practices. It's not about drastic measures but rather about consistent, intentional steps.

Healthy choices for families

Even though I’m a dad, not a mom, I’ve followed Yasmine for years. She is truly dedicated to sharing honest, factual, and well-researched information with other families.
Yasmine consistently goes above and beyond to deliver the goods.
The Non-Toxic Mommy podcast is our family’s new go-to source for healthy living tips! Highly recommended.

MooMom01 ,

Yesss! So good!

Sooo smart & helpful! Can’t wait for more episodes!!

UpliftedLiving ,

My new favorite pod!

I’m so glad I found this podcast. After a year of fertility issues I decided to make some changes. I already have a fairly healthy lifestyle but I feel totally overwhelmed with the idea of removing toxins from my food, house, etc. I love how in the first episode Yasmine said you DON’T have to do everything at once - it makes this journey feel much more achievable.
