    e060 - Launch Your Kid with Jane Kristoffy

    Hey mamas,

    We are back with another must-listen episode this week!  This new year sure looks and feels different than the ones before, but one thing we know for sure is how we want to feel… how we want our kiddos to feel.

    We are incredibly excited to share with you Jane Kristoffy, MEd, an educational strategist who helps students find their academic direction. She motivates kids to unleash their potential by helping them develop their learning and life skills, and find their passions and strengths.

    A teacher and guidance counsellor for over twenty-five years, Jane founded Right Track in 2012. She’s a popular speaker on a variety of education and parenting topics, and a regular guest expert on national television news programs. She is the author of her first book titled, Launch Your Kid: How to Promote Your Child’s Academic and Personal Success (without being a helicopter parent), which is jam-packed with no-nonsense tips for parents about how to get their kids through school and ready for the real world!

    Navigating change and setting our kids up for success sure looks different this year with remote learning and a whole lot of uncertainty times a million. As parents, we have been forced to pivot like never before. Adding to the many invisible hats we wear as mamas, we are now donning the hat of teacher, leader, guide, and more! The pandemic has tripled the motherload for everyone involved. It’s crucial to manage physical, nutritional, mental, and emotional health for parents and kiddos during these times.

    Sabrina and Jane talk about parenting styles, letting go of the mom-guilt, and setting your children up for success at each stage, pandemic or not.

    Some key takeaways from today’s episode:

    💡Set them up for success by helping them love their time alone—be it play time, reflection time, or simply connecting with themselves or their siblings, or even with you.

    💡 When you leave room for growth, exponential growth takes place. Children’s creativity and problem-solving skills thrive when left to their own imagination.

    💡 Notice when your kiddos energies and focus are at their peak levels... What are they doing? How do they study? What is the one thing that gets them focused... and continue to nurture that.

    💡What do you do to set yourself up for success, Mama? If we want our children to be/do/act a certain way, it starts with us. Children do as we do, not what we say.

    💡Setting children up for success takes a village, don’t be afraid to ask for help from other professionals. Keep the lines of communication open with your educators, engage where you can, and leave the rest. We are all in this together, though it might look different for each of us and our kids.

    I hope you enjoyed listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it!

    e059 - Dads Are Parents Too with Eli Weinstein

    e059 - Dads Are Parents Too with Eli Weinstein

    Hi Mama, and welcome to another week! Woohoo! We’ve made it one week into 2021 so far! And here we are, still remote schooling, working from home, momming, and doing all the things. But guess what, Mama? We’ve totally got this!

    I know it may feel like our motherload often goes unnoticed, and the last year has heightened it more so for both parents everywhere. While the maternal experience is shared about more openly more and more each year, today, we are in for a treat! We bring to you a husband/ father/ therapist’s perspective on motherhood and mental health.

    Meet Eli Weinstein, a social work therapist who has worked in a psychiatric hospital, intense outpatient clinic, and currently works in a community clinic in queens. He created ELIvation to fill a need to help those in struggling times and add extra inspiration and motivation into everyday life. Eli has been featured on Kelly Clarkson show, IVF Warrior, Fruitful, Breaking Taboo and on multiple podcast ranging from parenting, relationships, mental health, and infertility. His main goal is to help people on their journey to add support, care, empathy, expertise, and insight. He runs events, seminars, and individual coaching on topics from mental health awareness, public speaking coaching, relationship coaching, and confidence-boosting.

    In today’s episode, learn how to:

    💡Listen and hold space for one another. Tune out the noise. Listen with intention. It is a skill that can be developed.

    💡It’s okay for your roles to be mixed and matched. Take a moment, breathe, and refocus on what you need to do in the moment.

    💡It’s okay to pivot. It means you are readjusting, going with the flow so that you can handle what life throws at you. It’s okay to ease the pressure. Stop “should-ing” yourself.

    💡Practice situational triage: Is this situation life or death? Can it be moved to later? Who/What do you need help or support?

    I hope you enjoyed listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it!

    e058 - New Year, New Intention

    e058 - New Year, New Intention

    Hello Mama and welcome to the You’ve Got This Mama Podcast, season 2. What a year, amirite? But we survived it and here we are in 2021, new year, new vision, new perspective.

    We took a short hiatus from the podcast (you’ve probably noticed that we’ve been away from it for a while) with intention of course.

    2020 was a year for turning inward, a year for reflection, assessing where we needed to make some massive changes, and it’s also been a year of incredible growth.

    It feels good to be back—more aligned, more intentional than ever, and more spaciousness, because that is where everything thrives.

    Today’s episode talks about New Year’s Intentions vs Resolutions. You’re likely wondering… huh? How is that any different? Well, Mama, it is.

    Especially given the year we had, and the year that awaits us with second lockdowns, schools closing down once again, forcing parents to pivot to homeschooling while working and all the things, yet again. Aka the same scenario repeating itself, but the difference this time around will be our intentions around it - how we can blend our lives together and still maintain our personal space, our mental, emotional, and physical health and wellbeing.

    Here’s the thing, statistics show that 80% of people give up on their “resolutions” by January 17th to be exact, which is why it’s now been coined Goodbye New Year’s Resolutions day!

    Have you ever wondered why we do that? Why do we say something only to self-sabotage our efforts that we deep dive into on January 1st? And most of all, why wait until the new year to start something new or make a change?

    In today’s episode, learn how to:

    💡Set intentions instead of resolutions so you can focus on long-term growth and change.

    💡Stack healthy habits instead of cold turkey deprivation.

    💡Focus on the journey, the growth, instead of the end destination.

    💡Commit to how you want to feel. Commit to your WHY. Anchor into it!

    e057 - A Love-Powered Life with Anna Lozano and Lindy Sood of Love Powered Co.

    e057 - A Love-Powered Life with Anna Lozano and Lindy Sood of Love Powered Co.

    Hello Mamas!
    We are so happy to be back in a groove with many more episodes coming your way... The balmy summer days are slowly turning into gentle, cooler days (hopefully on all fronts), and we are gearing up for September, not knowing what lies ahead. And that is even more reason why we are so excited to bring to you some truly special guests -- Anna Lozano and Lindy Sood -- Founders and CEOs of Love Powered Co - the affirmation company. They are moms on a mission to power the next generation of mindful leaders and make I AM affirmations a common practice in homes around the world. Their affirmations have been seen on The Marilyn Denis Show, Breakfast Television, Fox News, and enjoyed by influencers and celebrities including Sarah Landry of The Birds Papaya, Jaime King, Jully Black, Cheryl Hickey amongst many others!
    Wowza! Talk about powerhouses, amirite?! On the podcast, we chat with Anna and Lindy about the power of affirmations, how it changed their life and quite frankly, how they approached motherhood. Both of them were on their separate but simultaneous journey of self-discovery and personal growth, centered around self-love. Their lives were transforming before their eyes, these changes visible in the everyday nuances and intricacies of their life. While most people would consider affirmations unimportant or silly, Anna and Lindy leaned hard into practicing I AM affirmations in their household, so much so it became a daily ritual. They noticed how their energy level shifted whenever they would state an affirmation, and soon they noticed these feelings of positivity, confidence, inspiration, worthiness, calm, kindness, openness lasted long after their affirmation ritual was over. Imagine how powerful words can be -- to shape your thoughts, words, actions, and in essence, design your life. And more than that, if mindfulness practices are beneficial for us, as mamas, imagine the positive effects they have on our children! With these exact thoughts in mind, parallel life journeys, shared values, and a deep desire to birth something beautiful, life changing and meaningful, Anna and Lindy followed their creative and intuitive nudge to create affirmations that were powered with deep self-love, and so, Love Powered Co. was born.
    Some top takeaways from today's episode:
    Socio-cultural conditioning often teaches us to think that self-care, self-love is not important and those who do practice this are self-centered or self-absorbed. Well, Mama, here's a reality flash: Self-love, self-care, and self-worth are basic needs for you to not only survive, but also thrive in all areas of your life. You are not being self-centered when you affirm yourself. The way you speak to yourself is so important, Mama.
    Self-love is the highest form of kindness and love you can give to yourself. How you love yourself sets the tone for how you love others and the love you accept. And we all know the oxygen-mask-in-an-airplane analogy: Put your own mask on first before you go to help others. The same applies to motherhood, business, and your personal life.
    Instilling these practices within our daily routine is powerful, it makes a difference in our life and also impacts our kiddos. How beautiful is it to set the tone and raise empowered, conscious littles who know that the key to long lasting peace, joy, and success lies within themselves -- their self-love, their self-confidence, their self-worth.
    Everything you encounter in your life, motherhood, and business, there is an affirmation for that. Cheeky, we know! But it's true! Words are so powerful they have the power to shift your mood, your energetic vibration, and your whole life.
    That being said, embrace the squiggly lines and the highs and lows, the ebbs and flows. The journey to success in all areas of your life is non linear. Luck has nothing to do with it.

    e056 - No More Silence with Samantha Monpetit-Huynh

    e056 - No More Silence with Samantha Monpetit-Huynh

    Hi Mamas,
    We are back after a bit of a hiatus... one that has been much needed... to reflect, to reassess, and pave the way forward on a wholistic lens. A lens where every voice is heard and shared. A platform where every story is heard and felt.
    The last few months have been months of reflection in light of the global pandemic, the #BlackLivesMatter movement and revolution, and much more. These last couple months have meant learning to take radical ownership toward being anti-racist, taking a step back to check my privilege while unlearning and relearning so many sociocultural narratives and dialogues, and truly creating a space for BIPOC voices to be heard, felt, and understood.
    Today's episode is special for so many reasons. This is a promise that no longer will I be silent, no longer will we be silent. This is a promise to honor the voices that have been oppressed for too long and hold space for their experiences. Today, we connect with Samantha Monpetit-Huynh, who is a mother of two beautiful girls, a core and pelvic floor rehab specialist who has been been in the fitness industry for almost 20 years. Samantha helps women take back control of their health, get off the hamster wheel of dieting so they can re-connect with their bodies, feel strong and build confidence once and for all at samcoretrainer.com
    Samantha is known extensively in her field and has appeared on several television shows as well as print media and was the resident fitness expert on the Marilyn Denis Show, a national award winning lifestyle show across Canada, from 2013-2017.
    However, today, we are not talking about any of that. Today's episode discusses the very real, raw, and vulnerable and much-needed conversation that is anti-racism. Today's conversation will crack your heart wide open because anti-racism work doesn't end within one week, one month, or one year. It is the work of a lifetime so that future generations of BIPOC will never have to experience the overt and covert oppression that still pervades our modern society.
    Samantha discusses how growing up in a biracial household often left her wondering, "Where do I really fit in?" In light of the Black Lives Matter movement that came to a collective uproar, it really has brought to light the racism that still permeates the daily facets of our lives. We don't see it, but it is there. And the only way to do away with it is to have a constant dialogue, unapologetically.
    We don't know about you, but we have been in a metamorphosis, we have been in a cocoon and our hope is that we, as a humans, emerge stronger and much wiser and empathetic than before.
    Sabrina and Samantha discuss certain key takeaways on creating a healthy, openhearted, and honest dialogue about White privilege, anti-racism, and the systemic oppression that takes place:

    * Staying silent is worse than saying the "wrong" thing. Speak from your heart, own what you're being called out on, and do the work. Yes, it's hard. Yes, it's uncomfortable AF, but it's so crucial to all of humanity.
    * Understand the privilege you hold in society, and use that to pave the way for positive change, for anti-racism. Being anti-racist isn't a preference, it is a way of life. We have the ability as mamas to raise children who are empathetic, completely self-aware, and inclusive while respecting and honoring the diverse cultures around them.
    * Stand in your truth. Speak up when you notice someone being racist - overtly or covertly. You won't always get rewarded for speaking your truth, but you will be creating the impact of a lifetime. Your littles are watching, listening, and feeling into everything you do and say.
    * Allow your children to BE the change in this world. Children have hearts that are pure and full of love.

    e055 - COVID Compassion Project - Self-compassion Through Change with Dr. Leah Katz

    e055 - COVID Compassion Project - Self-compassion Through Change with Dr. Leah Katz

    Ola Mamas, we are back this week with our very last episode in our Covid Compassion Project series with an episode that will hit home for many of you. Yes, it talks about self-care. I know we discuss that on the show in copious amount every single episode, but today's episode is special because it talks about self-care during change, being compassionate toward yourself, and all of the hard stuff, the icky stuff we know we meed to do because its good for us and our sanity, but never get around to doing.
    Joining us on the podcast today is Dr. Leah Katz, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist practicing in Portland, Oregon. Originally from New York, she completed her doctorate training at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology. While living in New York, Dr. Katz worked at a community clinic where she led several groups, treated individuals and couples in therapy, and taught a course in Health Psychology at Stern College for Women.
    We deal with change every single day - some big, some small, and some of it, life-changing. Well, Mama, I think it is safe to say that 2020 has been the year of colossal upheaval and change. And you know what, as moms, we are built for change. We are built for colossal upheaval every single day, from the time we become pregnant, until our littles are all grown up. Being a mom changes you in so many ways, but all for the better.
    However, how often do we embrace that change with compassion, with kindness, with wholehearted surrender?
    So often, our desires shift, our life shifts, our goals shift. Everything we once knew to be dear changes. Right now is no different.
    Mama, we always pressure ourselves to do more, be more every single day. We juggle it all round the clock, it just never stops. But one thing is for certain, if you are not whole, if you are not healthy (emotionally, mentally, and physically), everything else will cease to exist. You are needed. You are human first.
    Right now, our homes are not only where we eat, sleep, breathe and live. They are also our offices, our schools, our space of 24/7 coexistence with our families. And I don't know about you, but as much as I love my family to pieces, this mama needs her sanity. And that is in the form of daily self-care. Now I know, you're likely thinking, "Sabrina I don't have time to paint my nails and take a lavender salt bath." And that is okay. That is one part of self-care. The self-care Dr. Leah and myself talk about on the show is one where we get sustenance through periods of change, one that grounds us, mothers us, and supports us every single day.
    As moms, the first thing we let go of is taking care of ourselves. This looks like reheating the same cup of coffee 5x a day, eating crumbs or leftovers, reshuffling "our" plans over that of our partners' and children. Self-care in this context is literally stepping outside for 10 minutes and taking a deep breath. It could mean reading 10 pages of a book you love everyday. It could mean waking up an hour earlier than your family so you can get some movement in your day or meditation or whatever it is that anchors you and fuels you. Self-care is what will set you up for success during times of massive change. And change is constant, amirite?!
    Self care is also being accepting of yourself, surrendering to your day, to the moment. You do not have to save the world in a day, Mama. I repeat, you do not need to save the world every single day. You just need to save yourself and your family first, and that means putting on your oxygen mask first.
    Here are some of the things we talk about today:
    - Leading your children by example, and that starts with self-care. They watch everything - what you say, do, who you are. Your actions matter, Mama. Teach your kids to take care of themselves and nourish themselves by doing so for yourself.
    - Fuel your mind, body, and soul every single day. This will look different ever

Such authentic and uplifting conversations

I listen to a lot of podcasts but this is one of very few that really opens my eyes while making me feel so supported in motherhood. I love that the conversations are so real and vulnerable and yet still hopeful and uplifting. The world needs more of YGTMama ❣️
