It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.
Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is about managing the inevitable stress that goes hand-in-hand with being a busy mum. We’ve all felt it when the demands build up and up to the point where they overwhelm us.
My guest today is SuperMum, Kate Snowise.
New Zealand born Kate lives in Houston, Texas with her husband and their two small boys who are 4 and 2. Despite writing her Masters thesis on stress and wellbeing, Kate readily admits that being a parent is the toughest job she’s ever had.
Before becoming a mum, Kate was a Corporate Psychologist and started her own business as a Life and Executive Coach after being a stay-at-home mum for two years.
Kate will help us identify what stress is in simple terms, how we can recognise whether it’s building up within us to the point where it might be a problem, and how we can eliminate the inevitable stress that seems to be integral to our lives as a busy mum.
Kate’s fusion of professional knowledge, her education in the field of Positive Psychology, and the hands on practical experience she’s gained from the trenches of motherhood, makes her the perfect person to help us understand and combat the stress we deal with as mothers.
I’m so pleased that Kate has joined us today because her advice really will help you to eradicate stress and make a big difference in your life making it happier and healthier.
