Ever wonder why it seems like you're experiencing this time in what feels like a different mind or body than you've ever lived in? Every day of this course, you'll start with a video that will give a bit of background of how our minds work and the ways to manage them going forward.
Self Care Recordings
After learning from the video, you'll get a chance to practice a new tool. There will be one to three audio recordings every lesson. These practices are meant to help restore your nervous system to a more restful state after months of feeling on edge and anxious. They include guided meditations, breathwork and grounding exercises.
Finally, after learning and practicing, each day you'll have some time to absorb it all. There will be new prompts and questions each day to help you integrate the information and systems you have learned so you can carry them through life.
If you're not bingeing the course in one night I would suggest you give yourself one hour each day to devote to yourself through the course. Those hours can be spread out over weeks or broken up between the kids' naptime, nagging tweens about summer reading or monitoring teenagers incessant snacking and work zoom calls. It is a 3 day course, but it's designed for moms and you have lifetime access to the material. So, you'll get it done however you manage to always get it all done.
As mothers, we often take care of our kids first but we are both cornerstone and example so we need to make sure we are taken care of too. You can't pour from an empty pitcher so you have to put your own oxygen mask on first. (Is that enough mom cliches for you?)
For real, you have spent the last six months doing the work of ten men by balancing your own growth and emotional management with those of your children all in this time of the great unknown. You are the one everyone is looking to for guidance, but where are you getting yours? The benefits of this course are that you'll feel more connected and more supported. You'll leave with ideas for how to take care of yourself so that you can continue to take care of everyone else but not feel completely drained doing it. This short course will set you up so you can both see and seize the opportunities this time is bringing to teach our kids resilience and amazing life skills.
Imagine yourself in three days feeling more calm, more confident in your decisions and more peaceful in your home. There are two ways to respond:
A. Curl up in a ball or put your hands over your ears, wish for Summer 2021 to come faster than normal and lose a whole year.
B. Look for opportunities and even maybe the magic in This Strange Time.
Sometimes, we may respond both ways in the same day! Join us in From Chaos to Calm so you can choose B more often, and make the most at whatever life throws your way.
This course is only open for two weeks. Get started now and be prepared to handle the chaos of school before the bell rings.
