#127: How to Handle Mom Life When You’re Exhausted With Julie and Kallista

September 29, 2022



Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! 


This is another co-hosted episode with my special friend Julie from The Beanbag Cafe Podcast with Julie Fernandes! 


If you’re new to the podcast, Julie is an occupational therapist and a life coach for moms, passionate about helping women feel calm, organized, and joyful in motherhood.


In this episode, we felt it was important to discuss our approach to handling mom life when the current season is exhausting. 


This topic hit home for both of us as Julie is currently single-parenting while her husband is away, and I’m in between houses trying to carry on with normal life while home renovations are underway. 


Needless to say, we both have a lot on our plates and it can be quite overwhelming at times. 


Our conversation is about how the exhaustion in motherhood can be all-consuming, leaving little energy to be the moms we want to be. We talk about pursuing harmony instead of balance, and how giving yourself permission to enjoy what you love can make all the difference in the daily grind. 

 Some big takeaways are:

  1. Pursue harmony, not balance.
  2. You can’t do everything all at once perfectly, and that’s okay.
  3. Going with the flow is a mindset that’s needed in the postpartum period.  


Whether it’s today, tomorrow, or next week, you’re going to relate to this topic so much, and I hope you’ll remember these nuggets of wisdom!
