Hey there Mama, does this sound like you?
Each morning, you wake up already tired and dreading the long day ahead. Your eyes are barely open before that first cup of coffee, and you’re reaching for caffeine in all forms to help get through the day.
Each afternoon, you can barely keep your eyes open as you mindlessly move through your routine. When you finally hit the pillow after zoning out on Netflix and wine, your mind is racing and you can’t get to sleep no matter how tired you are.
You’re frequently frazzled. You can’t seem to focus or think clearly, much less remember where you put your wallet and keys. You’ve got “mommy brain” and all the brain fog, lack of clarity, and forgetfulness that comes with it.
You’re operating in survival mode and despite having reasonable desires beyond your current daily life, the thought of putting more on your plate makes you want to curl up in the fetal position and cry.
You’ve read through all the positive discipline parenting books, even “aha-ing” your way through them, but you’re still yelling at your kids and surprising yourself at how angry and frustrated you get at everything.
Sure, it’s common to be totally wiped out in motherhood...but if you’re reading this, you know it could be better.
So what’s causing you to collapse from exhaustion and holding you back from feeling like yourself again?
I’ve got one word for you, mama: DEPLETION
I’ve been there too, even to the level of total burnout, hypothyroidism and postpartum depression. But here is the crazy thing: I now have more energy than I did before I had my kids. That’s why I am so committed to helping other mamas experience the same because it IS possible. Just a few months ago, I placed 7th in the first ever USA Track and Field National Women’s Decathlon Championships even as the oldest competitor and only mother!
Now, you don’t need to go sign up for a decathlon, or anything for that matter, but I want you to know that you can have more energy now to do all the things you do (and want to do) in your life.
You can wake up each morning feeling refreshed and resourced, even excited, without needing a gallon of coffee riding shotgun all day
You can think more clearly and make decisions more quickly because you can actually focus on what’s in front of you.
You can nourish yourself - exercising regularly, eating mindfully, spending time with friends, and finding time to take care of you. Maybe diving into a passion project, enrolling in art classes, learning to meditate, or taking long baths….and it’s all for YOU.
You’ve stopped overreacting to your kids and partner, and you’re actually finding the time and energy to be connect with your family and be present and engaging.
