Banishing Mom Burnout

Sabra Staudenmaier

Motherhood, in theory, should be wonderful. It’s the most natural thing in the world. Every living thing on this planet has a mother! But if you’re listening to this podcast, you are likely experiencing a special flavor of motherhood, the one I’ve been in. Let’s call this version “modern motherhood.” This is the motherhood with postpartum depression, sleep training, social media, gluten, ADD, anxiety, food allergies and most recently, Covid. The sparks of many issues are out there. And without the right skills, flames will ignite. If you don’t know how to manage this, motherhood will scald and sear and can burn you alive. How do you know if you have Mom Burnout? – You feel like a servant in your own home – You aren’t taking care of your body – Your finances are not organized. You don’t have the time or energy to manage them. – You don’t feel good about your relationships with family – You engage in overeating, overdrinking, over shopping, or business to cope – Your life is hyper focused on your role as a caretaker and there is little room for your own needs – You are having a hard time with work/life balance. – You feel overwhelmed – You have a deep scary feeling that you’re lost – Underneath it all you are unhappy more of the time than you want to admit Well Moms, I’m here to tell you amazing news! There is a way out! I’ve experienced the worst of this. My burnout charred me all the way to clinical depression. I was overweight, overdrinking, and this led to … not the best conditions to care for myself or the other people in my house. But I found a way to extinguish the burn. I’ve healed relationships, I’ve lost the excess weight and I stopped drinking alcohol. I’ve also I started a business where I get to live my life’s purpose and passion while making money. In this podcast, I’m going to help you reclaim yourself so that you can get out of volcanic motherhood hell and are able to enjoy motherhood. This is not your mother’s motherhood ladies; the circumstances have changed. This one can become an inferno. But there IS a way to tame the flames. If you want to find out how, join me here in the Banishing Mom Burnout podcast! I will see you soon!
