EPISODE 33: Reframing Anxiety (Part 2)
We continue the conversation surrounding an often "swept under the rug" daily feeling that naturally comes with parenting and that is anxiety and worry.  This seems like a common default setting because we anticipate our kids needs and prepare for all the "what ifs" that come with the unpredictability of raising little humans.  Part 1 of this series goes into this further so please do go back and listen if you missed this.  Today in Part 2, we cover 3 powerful ways you can use in real time to help you regain your center, stay present and lessen the anxious energy around parenting.

EPISODE 32: Reframing Anxiety (Part 1)
Seems like feeling anxious, uneasy or just plan anxiety is often your default setting when you become a mama...but here's the kicker - this is can actually be a good thing because in this series you are going learn how to use this to your advantage.  Now if you are like most mamas, myself included, being a mama meant that motherhood naturally leads to worry and always being prepared for every worst case scenario.  Most mamas can end up spending their daily lives in the future even if that means just minutes or hours within your day.  Anticipating your kiddos' needs is natural role in parenting but doing so keeps us away from staying present (high vibe) and stuck in "future mode" which naturally results in anxiety.  This 2 part series will help you achieve more balance, peace of mind and less overwhelm in our parenting because getting out of anxiety gives you the ultimate freedom and flexibility to do mama life in a more empowered and inspired way.

Episode 27: Tuning out the noise and tune into YOU
One of the biggest assets to being a mama, is your ability to use your sense/intuition especially when it comes to your kiddos.  This is an incredible tool in navigating the unpredictability that comes with parenting especially if you have more than one kiddo.  However, the common side effect is that you lose touch with your own voice when it relates to your own holistic well-being.  Think about all the books, podcasts, classes or workshops you probably attended when you first got pregnant.  It is so common to outsource your natural intuition to the "experts" to tell you what to expect or how to approach XYZ in your parenting.  After time, we can abandon our own voice and intuition when it comes to our own health, happiness and fulfillment which then leads to survival mode, overwhelm and burnout in motherhood.  But not to worry mamas, this episode is all about coming home to your north star and reclaiming your natural ability to sense what you need to have the outcomes and results you want in your life.  Make sure we stay in touch via IG @effortlessparentingexpert and as always, if you found value in this episode, please share with your mama circles. Together, let's evolve the conversations we have in our mama community to ones that help support our personal development and expansion.
