As mothers, we want to give our children the world. It's culturally acceptable to self-sacrifice to the point of exhaustion, depletion and burnout. And we tell ourselves we're doing it for them. But are we?
Anxiety is a really big one for many mothers, especially new moms.
It might feel like a huge weight on your shoulders when you become responsible for a little life for the first time, and the worries and the fears just keep on coming.
Most moms I work with see the connection between their own self-care and the energy and presence they have to give their children, partners, work and other important things and people in their lives. ⠀
But there's still a block. Your life is FULL. Chock-a-block with raising children, taking care of the house and all the emotional labour that comes along with motherhood, and possibly working outside the home too. I get it, I really do. My life feels super full, too. You're exhausted and it's hard to find the energy to get to a yoga class or go for a run or cook a healthy meal. I understand. I feel that way sometimes too. ⠀
