Podcast Episode #152: How to Reduce Your Mental Load

In this podcast episode, we are chatting with Laurel Hess who is a mom of two boys and the founder/CEO of hampr – a peer-to-peer on-demand laundry marketplace. Laurel’s obsessed with helping busy families free up their time and alleviate the mental load.

We talk about the heavy mental loads moms carry as we are overwhelmingly the primary caretaker of our households and our kids (often while balancing a career as well), and what we can do to reduce that mental load, and free up some space for us to enjoy our lives and feel more present instead of mentally checking off items from our to-do list.

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

  • How a busy weekend turned into a successful nationwide business for one mom
  • Why we can feel like we’re not doing enough when we compare ourselves to others 
  • What the mental load that you carry as a mom can be invisible 
  • The best hack to get kids to take on more responsibility is planning playdates
  • How to get over the guilt and reduce our mental load for everyone’s well being
