023: Secrets to Developing a Strong Mind and Finding Balance | Sara Robinson

The strong-minded rise to the challenge of their goals and dreams


In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be discussing how to create the strength of mind of an athlete to use in your life as a mum which will help to create balance and harmony in your busy world.

My guest today is SuperMum, Sara Robinson.

Sara has two small boys aged 4 and 1, has a Masters Degree in Sports Psychology and is a Mental Skills Coach. After learning first hand how hard it is to juggle everything that comes with the job title of Mum, Sara worked out the solution and went on to launch ‘Get Mom Balanced’ an online community of mums.

In her work, Sara brings together her professional skills and knowledge helping athletes, plus her experience as a mum, to help other busy mums create balance and develop the mental skills needed to survive and thrive in motherhood.

Today Sara will teach us why Mental Skills Training is so beneficial, and gives us some practical tools that we can use to strengthen our minds as mums. And I don’t know about you, but some days I need some of that in extra large doses.

Sara will help us understand why it’s important to look under our own bonnet, to find where our own passions and interests lie. We can then use that as a springboard to find out what makes us tick and then harness that to create a life that we love. A life that’s fulfilling to us as a woman, instead of simply fulfilling the needs of everyone else all the time.

I’m excited that Sara is joining us today because she’s passionate about helping mums to seek balance and give them support for the challenges of mom life. And I’m confident that she’ll help you too.
