Parenting takes energy. Even at the most basic level, we have so much to do because we are taking care of multiple people who depend on us.
However, many of us are spending more energy than we have to spend… and as a result, we’re more depleted, irritable, and unhappier than we need to be.
In this episode, Rachel will discuss changes you can make (that don’t take extra time!) to give yourself what you need, give your kids what they need, and to parent with less stress and less energy.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why, from a scientific perspective, we are unnecessarily exhausting ourselves
- The difference between “self care” and “self treatment” — and why it makes a difference!
- Simple steps you can take to stop wasting precious energy
