Podcast Episode 220: Finding the Balance: How to Thrive at Work and At Home and Learning to Say “No”

Hey there, fellow multitasking maestro! Picture this: it’s Monday morning, you’ve got a project deadline at work looming over you, soccer practice for your little ones after school, and a family dinner you promised your mom you’d attend. Sound familiar? Welcome to the juggling act that is the life of a busy mom.

As a mom of two, I’ve danced with the delicate balance of work and family, feeling the pressure to excel in both arenas. The struggle is real, and at times, it feels like saying “no” is as rare as finding a quiet moment in a bustling household.

Take a moment to reflect on your daily routine…Are you over-committing? Are you stretched thin between work obligations and family responsibilities? It’s okay to admit it—we’ve all been there.

Let’s embark on a journey with this podcast episode where we’ll find that sweet spot between thriving at work and home PLUS, learn a thing or two about setting boundaries to safeguard your sanity and well-being.

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:

  • Commonly shared challenges that working moms face at home and in the workplace when it comes to overcommitting
  • How to set boundaries and say NO to avoid over-committing (and burnout)
  • Practical tips for blocking off time on your calendar to ensure you’ve got adequate time for everything you need to do each day (including take care of YOU!)
  • What to do when boundaries are broken and how to keep moving forward
