One of the biggest obstacles that all the busy moms face is finding time for themselves. Whether that’s time to use the restroom alone or take a shower without somebody needing something, or the time to work out, read a book, have a real conversation with friends… anything that make you feel like you again. With the never ending to do list and the needs of everyone else, it’s HARD!
I know and share regularly what has worked for me and many of my clients, but it’s also great to learn from what has worked for others.
Today I interviewed Jen Mackinnon founder of Practical, by Default an online community where she shares “valuable resources, tips, and tricks that are totally practical and doable designed for working homeschool moms.” As a mom who works outside the home, homeschools her 2 children, AND runs a successful blog and thriving online community, Jen knows busy! She also knows first hand the consequences of not taking time for herself.
I highly recommend you take some time to watch this interview. There were so many great take aways for me:
The blog post we mention at the end is 9 Signs That You Are In Survival Mode And How to Get Out. Another great post along the same lines as our conversation is How to Make Time for You When You “Don’t Have Time”.
Thank you Jen!!
PS. After just watching this back I realize you can hear Drew yelling "Mommy" from the bathroom for the last 5 minutes. Poor guy!
