Many of my clients overeat and overdrink because of the stress and demands of motherhood. But when we clarify motherhood as separate from loving our kids, we start to open up new possibilities for healing and eating well. So I asked Graeme Seabrook to give us some ideas to find a win-win for kids AND moms, and how to be a healthy mom when there’s no time.
In today’s episode, Graeme and I get into:
- How you can love your kids and hate how Motherhood is defined today and how to redefine Motherhood on your own terms;
- How capitalism sets up perfectionism and this judgey tone of Motherhood of both ourselves as Moms and other Moms;
- The importance of shifting the focus away from your children’s happiness to this, for both you and them.
