Podcast Episode 133: How to Know If YOU Need a Break

Burnout is common. It’s estimated that up to 5 million U.S. parents experience it every year.  And sadly, so often we see it in others long before we see it in ourselves.

Let’s address that.

When we are stressed out to the max, it can affect so many things. We can lose our cool over the tiniest things, feel like everyone is just trying to get on our nerves, and even start to feel like we’re sick. As moms, so many of us think that we just have to learn to deal with the stress, when we really need to learn to take a minute, reflect and realize we need a break. But it doesn’t stop there, once you realize you need it…how on earth do you actually get that needed break?
