Podcast Episode 275: The Real Reason Why We Can’t Just Relax!

Picture this: You’re finally sitting down with a hot cup of coffee, ready to take a breather, when suddenly a million thoughts flood your mind.

Ever find yourself wondering why “relax” is just a word in your vocabulary and not an actual thing you do? Seriously…why can’t moms relax?

“You just need to relax” Oh that sentence feels condescending as heck, yet is really good advice. If only it were that easy…am I right?

Moms, it’s high time we gave ourselves permission to relax. We’re juggling so much and doing an incredible job. By challenging societal norms, redefining productivity, and silencing the internal and external critics, we can carve out moments of peace and joy for ourselves.

Relaxation isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity. Here’s to finding the balance and giving ourselves the grace we so freely give to others.

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

  • How established gender norms contribute to women’s lack of relaxing culture
  • How messaging of “downtime is wasted time” teaches our kids to constantly stay busy and increases their stress levels
  • Why women are more likely to feel like they can’t relax because they are expected to be productive at work and at home – 24/7
  • The importance of being transparent with your people about your own struggles and success in motherhood
