Navigate Work and Kids With More Ease and Presence

Dec 21, 2022

Struggling to juggle the demands of work and kids? Are your kids sick at home more than usual these days? Feel constantly torn between excelling in your work and being there for your family?

You're not alone! 

In this video, I keep it real with my own challenges, sharing why it's so darn stressful to juggle work and kids, and how to navigate it with more ease and presence. 

1. Expect that it will be messy - this is normal

2. Stop trying to do it all and instead get closer to the "bullseye" (I explain what I mean)

3. Know what really matters -- at work, with your family, and in your life -- to guide your daily choices (sometimes can be minute-by-minute choices)

4. Give yourself permission to say 'no' to what matters less

5. Keep boundaries between your work and personal time -- you still need to take care of yourself

6. Be present where you are 

7. Let go of the guilt AND also pay attention to what the guilt is telling you

8. Be intentional in how you are showing up

9. Get the small, everyday moments right and you'll have an extraordinary life (even with the messiness)

10. Be kind to yourself and grant yourself grace . . . especially when #9 goes sideways!

All my best,
