Have you recently said any of the following:
I want to:
...Be more patient with my kids/partner/myself
...Be nicer to myself
...Be more mindful
...Take better care of myself
...Manage my stress better
...Have more time for me
...Workout, journal, meditate, “fill in self-care practice here” more
...Gain more confidence in myself and as a mom
Quickly followed by...
...I don’t have time for that right now
...I'll do that when Covid isn't canceling everything
...I’ll do that when my kids are older
...I’ll do that when my kids are out of the house
...I’ll do that when I get more help
...I’ll do that when someone gives me permission
… HOW DO I EVEN DO IT!?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
I hear these thoughts in my own head and from my clients and students every day.
I get that motherhood might have thrown your world into chaos not to mention the constant changing of plans/decision fatigue that COVID has thrown into the mix, but it’s time to stop putting off tending to your own wants and needs.
To stop putting YOURSELF on the backburner.
The truth is that if you wait for the optimal conditions to prioritize yourself and your much needed self-care, you may be waiting for a (very) LONG TIME.
I could tell you about the importance of filling your own cup, and how that will make you a better mother, wife, colleague, friend -- BUT you already know that.
It’s not like you don’t WANT to take care of yourself, it’s just that everytime you try, it feels like something else crops up and gets in the way. And there may be a sneaky sense of guilt that creeps in regardless of what decision you make! Ie. guilt for choosing to take care of yourself and not spend time with your family/doing work for your job… and/or guilt around not taking the time for yourself and feeling burned out/overwhelmed as a result. It’s kind of like you can’t win!
That is why this isn’t another workshop on the importance of self-care or finding “work/life” balance - because what does that even mean anyway?!
This is an interactive session on HOW to get clear on what you ACTUALLY need and want, and then lay the groundwork for making the time and space in your life for it.
What School of MOM community members are saying...
"The School of MOM has enabled me to connect with a community of women who offer support, understanding and a sense of belonging in a world that can be isolating at times. I've only just begun to explore the practice of mindfulness and can clearly see the benefits of incorporating it into my life. I give all the credit to The School of MOM."
"Balance, peace and mindfulness can be part of your everyday experience as a mother. Sarah & her offerings have become daily teachers and supporters of those amazing things! It's hard to make time for anything, but she helps you claim back time for the things that matter."
Hi, I’m Sarah
I am a mom of 2 little girls, a therapist and a yoga & mindfulness teacher.
Since I became a mom 5 years ago, I have experienced first-hand how hard it is to make the transition from a free floating/do what you want when you want individual to a parent who is pulled in many directions and can easily put herself last.
Not only have I been passionate about learning how to make time for myself, I’m also committed to learning and teaching my therapy clients and School of MOM community members to do the same. Because the truth is - I haven’t met one Mom over the past 5+ years that doesn’t struggle with making time for herself in the hundreds of hours I’ve spent working with moms and since I have become a mom!
Where I’m at today in how I approach my own time and self-care is a product of my psychology and mindfulness training, as well as a whole lot of research, professional support and personal trial and error.
I want to spare you the time, effort and money that I’ve invested in my own evolution and give you the cliff’s notes!
I want you to have access to the compilation of an array of planners, science of mindfulness and habits, and the psychology of behavior change that have all helped me overcome my own struggles of making time for myself.
And that is exactly what you’ll get when you join me for this live workshop.
"Sarah's genuine and caring approach helped me shift my mindset that self care had to be a large chunk of time and realize even a moment of deep breathing could change my day."
"Finding connection with other moms - especially during this time of profound isolation- was a true solace. Sarah helped us share our experiences in a way that was revealing and honest, but still comfortable. I don’t think it’s easy to find a community of supportive and positive moms, even under the best of circumstances. With the School of Mom, Sarah is building that community."
The hard truth is… nothing changes if nothing changes. You aren’t going to magically get more time or flip a switch on feeling guilty for taking time for yourself.
Making intentional and conscious shifts in your life to prioritize time for yourself starts with … becoming more conscious and intentional.
It starts with making a commitment to yourself because you KNOW you can and deserve to feel more at ease in your life.
Taking the first step from “I’ll do that when…” to “I’m choosing to make shifts NOW” starts with signing up for Make Time for You.
Reclaim your attention and precious time so you can confidently take care of yourself - without guilt and confusion!
"To say Sarah and The School of MOM has helped me become a better mom, wife, business partner, and boss, essentially a better human, would be a vast understatement. She has helped me work towards becoming the best version of myself.
She has taught me how to be more present and appreciative of my time with my kids through mindfulness and self-compassion. She has taught me to be less frustrated with challenging situations and/or people in my life through resetting my expectations and using boundaries.
She is the very best at what she does."
