Motherhood whisked you from
"I'll OWN THIS PLACE one day!" to
“did I really make this tiny human?”
in 9 months flat …
and you’re not mad about it ...
... except for the part where you seem to have surrendered your life to a brain that doesn’t quit with the running task list of bottle washing and laundry loading, meal planning and dust bunny vacuuming, birthday party planning and potty training, bill paying and …
you get the idea ...
what is it?
What do I do about it?
what is it?
Whether or not you've heard this term before, I'm 150% sure it's part of your life right now.
It's the invisible Post-It notes flying around your mind 24/7.
It's the running tasks and rabbit holes that you inevitably experience every single time you go to "complete" something on your list.
It's putting a load of laundry in the wash, only to find that you need to order new detergent, then seeing that your Amazon Subscribe & Save needs to be updated because the baby isn't in size 2 diapers anymore, followed by realizing you need to pay the credit card and in order to pay it, you need to transfer some money for cash flow, then dang it, you forgot to submit your expense report at work last week ...
and so on ...
What do I do about it?
I want to be wrong about your experience with mental load, but the good news is that we can fight it! It does NOT have to be this way 24/7.
Your health - mental, physical & emotional - is critically important and if mental load is contributing to reduced health in any area, it's time to make a change. Say it louder!
You're not supposed to manage, pursue, and control all the things. You need to prioritize.
You're not supposed to be a martyr and do everything all by yourself. You need to set clear boundaries & accept help.
You're not supposed to "just get by" in this season of motherhood.
You need to create & fully own the life you want to lead.
ready to fight mental load with me?
