Let’s face it. Summer is great. And it’s a lot.
A lot of time with kids. Traveling. Extra meal prep. Day trips with snack bags. Feeling like there’s not enough time to get work done. Long days. Late nights. Sibling fights. Loneliness.
You’re going to need a plan to enjoy the season - and avoid burnout.
Summer Burnout is a real thing. So many decisions to make. So many mental demands. So much emotional labor.
When you don’t have time to re-charge, you are going to be more reactive and less patient.
To show up as a calm mama this summer, you are going to need time alone. Your body, heart and mind will all need a break.
Take a Break
How would you feel if you had a few hours “off” each week where you reset your body, heart, and mind? Who would you be? What would change in your life if you felt less burned out? Less exhausted? Less overwhelmed?
My guess? You’ll come back feeling better and more calm. Feeling rested will improve your relationships, make you more effective at work and bring more peace and joy to your home.
It’s not selfish to take care of yourself. It’s not something you earn. It’s not something you have to prove you need.
Taking care of yourself is vital to being a human. It’s vital to being a woman. It’s vital to being a mom.
In this episode, I’m teaching you how to plan for breaks and self care - in a way that ensures they actually happen!
I call it the Calm Mama Break, and we’re going step-by-step through creating your personal plan.
We’re also talking about how to fit “mini-breaks” into your daily rhythms.
When you decide that taking care of yourself this summer and avoiding burnout is a PRIORITY - you will be creative and find a way to make it happen! And I’m here to help you do it.

This topic is SO important to me. That’s why I have two courses in Calm Mama Club all about self care.
One is called “Mastering Your Stress Response” and it goes through, step-by-step, how to get out of the mama stress spiral.
The other is an exclusive bonus course called “Self Care for Moms”. In this class, I define self care by breaking it down into 6 different categories. I give you strategies to overcome the obstacles to taking care of yourself (like time, guilt, not having childcare) and walk you through a step-by-step self care plan that is designed specifically for you, by you.
You can get instant access to both of those courses, as well as live group coaching twice a week with me, where you get to talk about what’s going on with your family and get the mindset shifts and practical tools you need to show up as the mom you want to be.
