Building Resilience through Small Bites of Self Care with Bridget Strama
For the holiday season, I wanted to bring some calm and joy. This is why today’s episode is all about how to integrate small acts of self-care into your life.
We chat about how Bridget has navigated the challenges of the pandemic; the shift in work-life flow it brought for her family as well as the inception of her new program “Self-Care Small Bites”. We chat about our refusal to propagate martyrdom as a badge of honor for moms if we want our kids to grow up in a more equal society. Listen until the end and enjoy a guided “self care small bite”.
We also discuss how we make it a point to show our kids that we moms have passions. That we are people who need to take care of themselves before caring for others. Bridget shares about using yoga techniques in her classroom creating a much kinder atmosphere. She also shares about her supportive husband helping her navigate work-life balance integration while she is busy doing different projects.
