    109 | Let's Use ChatGPT to Manage Mom Life Mayhem

    Today, we're playing around with an unexpected hero in our everyday life - ChatGPT. (Personally, I use Jasper, but ChatGPT is the free version so that's what I'm linking for you!)

We'll give it a few qualifiers and I'll be amazed at its results.

If you're tired of answering the question, "What's for dinner?", ChatGPT is here to help. We'll talk about how it can assist in planning meals for the week or even the month, considering dietary restrictions and preferences.

    The Number One Marriage Tip My Couple's Therapist Taught Me

    The Number One Marriage Tip My Couple's Therapist Taught Me

    In today's episode, I share the top strategy my couple's therapist taught me over the past two years. This episode discusses the importance of creating fair fighting rules with your spouse to avoid lengthy arguments and ensure a healthy marriage.
    Why Create Fair Fighting Rules? Arguments in relationships are normal, but they can quickly escalate and damage a marriage if not handled correctly. By creating fair fighting rules with your spouse, you both establish clear guidelines for approaching and resolving conflicts respectfully and healthily.
    What Are Fair Fighting Rules? Fair fighting rules are the agreed-upon guidelines couples create to ensure arguments stay constructive and respectful. These rules can include not using hurtful language or bringing up past issues, taking a break when emotions run high, and actively listening to each other's  perspectives
    How to Create Fair Fighting Rules? To create fair fighting rules, both partners should come to the table with an open mind and a willingness to listen. Identify your personal triggers and share them with your partner, and establish guidelines for communication that honor both perspectives.
    Benefits of Fair Fighting Rules By establishing fair fighting rules, couples can resolve conflicts more quickly and effectively, leading to a healthier and happier marriage. They also help couples keep arguments from being drawn out and emotionally charged.

Love the real talk!!

I just discovered this podcast and it’s exactly what I needed! I was craving some real talk about balancing motherhood with my life goals and this is it! Highly recommend 🙌

Great podcast!

So much great info! Thanks for your honesty, Taran!

woowww3 ,

SO relatable

I highly recommend this gem of a podcast. The Undomestic Mom podcast is so relatable! One of Taran’s most recent episodes on Decision Making Fatigue was particularly helpful in my current season of life. I felt like she was literally describing my regular experiences, which goes to show, this is a real thing that we, moms, struggle with! My husband travels a lot of work which makes it difficult for me to switch gears and ask for help when I need it. I feel like Taran always provides actionable tips for making the motherhood experience less bumpy than it needs to be! Highly recommend!!
