DROWNING IN OVERWHELM? TRY THIS!
If you’ve ever caught yourself drowning in overwhelm and on top of that you are unkind and berating yourself for not doing more, making mistakes or not being your best… This episode is for you.
A few months back, I noticed a common comment moms feel in my private Mod-Zen Mama Facebook community. It was from a busy stay-at-home mama of 3 girls who was struggling with finding balance, feeling overwhelmed and she noticed the unkind thoughts that berated her for not feeling more balanced and centered.
So often this happens to me too. As ambitious moms we are constantly going, doing and taking care of everything, when we feel the affects of our body sending signals to take a break, or when we should take a nap instead of push our body further- instead of nourishing and nurturing ourselves, we berate ourselves for not being able to do it all and doing MORE.
Here’s a harsh truth… Our unkind words, relentlessly pushing and overloading our minds, lives and nervous systems is in direct proportion to how we are unloving and uncompassionate with ourselves AND others.
We can only love, nurture and be compassionate to others in the direct proportion we allow ourselves to be loving to ourselves.
If you struggle with being unkind with yourself, I believe this one question will help shift your perspective and cultivate more deep self-love (if you’re brave enough to answer it honestly).

When we love ourselves, this is the example we set for our children. It’s okay to give ourselves a break. It’s safe to listen to our body. It’s not narcissistic to prioritize your well-being and love yourself.
When we teach our children to love themselves, they have a greater capacity of empty and compassion for others.
With all my love,
