The Family Balancing Act

The Family Balancing Act

Come on in, kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, and grab a coffee, because we have plenty to chat about! As a mom, you know much of your time is spent devoted to family, with the majority of that time in a chaotic cattle drive of errands, activities, and meals on the run. Ready for a fresh perspective on what you’ve been living through? You’re in the right place. And starting today, you’re no longer in this alone. Each week we’ll explore the realities of your day-to-day family life in this modern era of non-stop texts, memes, and technology. After all, how many rules can we have? How many days do you stay in your workout clothes until the afternoon? How many recipes can you save? Families are living breathing entities that need to be nurtured, from our nuclear family to our global family, and let’s be honest: most of that nurturing is going to fall on your shoulders. Does it really all begin and end with self-care? Is that the answer? Tune in each week as we figure it out together. With our amazing guests and thought-provoking discussions, we’ll take a holistic look at family health: emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual. Whether it’s a micro perspective of family involving healthy snacks, teenagers with attitude, stressed out husbands/partners, potty training, eldercare, grandchildren, or a macro perspective of world events, including flu, earthquakes, weather, and finances, we will find a way together.
