A little bit about me

 
For years, I felt overwhelmed with keeping up with life.  There was always so much to do – kids’ activities, volunteering, fitting in work, cooking, laundry and cleaning.  Inevitably forgetting things or kids ๐Ÿคฃ and just not feeling like I had my act together. I was worn out by mid day and was going through the yo-yo of sugar highs and lows all day long.  

I had to get control of the overwhelm and stop feeling like a failure.  I knew I had to ask for help and find ways to simplify life.  So I became a student again and have been the queen of research on finding ways to improve my mindset and get control of the overwhelm!  

I had already started incorporating more holistic ways to care for our family.  

Then I was introduced to a product from a company that I trust, that completely changed the way we tackle cleaning at our house.  I also discovered a way to eliminate my afternoon energy slumps!

I've put a gratitude practice in place along with taming my schedule and making my health a priority and I have found a better groove!  

Now, I am on a mission to empower the overwhelmed and scattered mommas out there with the knowledge I have gained from the research I have done to fill your cup with gratitude and joy and make healthier choices along the way.

Kids are resilient!

Kids are resilient!
This past year, also known as the corona coaster, was a wild ride to say the least.  Worldwide confusion, fear, panic, and isolation sent us into a tizzy of finding ways to find normalcy in a vast canyon of unrest.  I found myself journaling more just to get things out of my head and doing things I had not done in a long time like busting out the sewing machine and digging through old pictures to relive some memories.  I went through the questioning phase, the consume all the news phase and then decided I couldn’t sustain that and maintain a good state of mental health.  

What I noticed though is that the kids just kept bouncing back time and time again.  When it all started and everything came to a screeching halt, they didn’t like it, but they adapted.  They did their schoolwork remotely and worked through the technology issues that came up.  Winter sports ended abruptly, and spring sports didn’t get to start.  Instead of choosing to just sit around, they found basketball hoops in the neighborhood to shoot baskets, threw baseballs to each other in the front yard, found things to jump onto to improve jumping skills, found trampolines to jump on to work on flips and challenged each other with workout routines they made up.  

Then summer came and they couldn’t do things like summer camps and hang out in groups at each other’s houses, so they figured out ways to still have fun and spent the entire summer outside riding bikes and running around in the woods building bridges and lean-tos and all sorts of things.  

When school finally started again in a totally different format (in person a couple days a week and remote learning the rest of the days), they didn’t like that either, but they adapted once again.  They figured out how to plan their week, they worked through even more technology issues and adapted yet again when quarantines started happening because of school exposure.   They wore their face masks and carried their desk shields, washed their hands and sanitized all day long. Did they grumble about it, sure, but they adapted to the new rules.  

Sports started up again, but they had to wear facemasks, be prepared with their own water instead of water fountains, keep distanced during practices, compete virtually, etc.  They agreed because they just wanted to get out there and play and compete.  

When it was announced that we were going back to school 5 days a week, they were ready and when ice storms and flooding prevented that from happening, they just rolled with the punches.  They have been the most resilient of all during all the restrictions and changes in rules over the last year.  I believe we have a lot to learn from how well they have adapted and bounced back after every set back.  

As babies, the only way they learn to go from crawling to walking is to fall down a bunch of times until they get it right.  Maybe it’s because they are closer to that time in their life than I am because they just kept going and kept trying different things.  They learned what didn’t work and tried different things until they got the hang of all the changes that we kept throwing their way.  

As an adult, I found myself acting more like a toddler and throwing a fit when there was a new restriction or change in rules.  I would argue that it didn’t make sense or didn’t seem right in some way.  I would work myself up about it and mull it over in my head for hours at a time, which always impacted my mood in a negative way.  When I recognized what I was doing, I would try to take a few minutes put some happy oils in the diffuser and write it out in my journal to get it out of my head and that helped put things in a better perspective.   

As we are coming to the end of this roller coaster ride, we will all get off of the ride but the only difference is, the kids rode through it with a lot less stress and trepidation than I did.  

Kids are sponges and soak up the entire life experience in a way that molds and shapes their way of thinking that they will carry into adulthood.  I believe they have learned a great deal about how to work within an ever-changing world dynamic at a more accelerated pace than I ever did that’s for sure.  

Kids are resilient.   Adults are too, we just have to work a little bit harder at it.  It might seem silly to some but journaling really helped me ride this corona coaster and keep things in perspective.  I delve deeper into this process in my course Corralling Life into One Notebook.  If you are looking for a way to corral your stress and put it in perspective, I would encourage you to jump on the waitlist for my course and snag a discount code HERE.  

Be resilient my friend… and keep your hands, arms and legs inside the ride until it comes to a complete stop.    ๐Ÿ˜


When your youth athlete gets hurt....

When your youth athlete gets hurt....
Your child is having fun and you are enjoying watching them do their thing and then it happens…  It could be a strain, a sprain, a broken bone, a sore arm but whatever it is, life comes to a screeching halt and it impedes them from continuing their sport for a while.  

As a mom, you know your kid better than anyone else!  You know their reactions to things.  You know if they scream bloody murder at a spider on the wall the same as they do about a splinter.  You know if they don’t say a peep about a skinned-up knee or bloody nose until you find the trail of band aids or tissues in the trash.  Or maybe you have already explained The Boy Who Cried Wolf story too many times to recount at this point!  

After you wipe away the tears and have a minute to assess the situation, I find it helpful to first take a minute to take a couple of deep breaths myself.  No need to have your adrenaline on overdrive when your dealing with an injury right?  

Some things will obviously need medical attention like broken bones, split open skin, and injuries that present concussion symptoms to name a couple.  If that’s the case, get in the car and go directly to the doctor, do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars and do not worry about your chair.   

What I tend to deal with more often than not are repetitive use injuries, simple sprained ankles or bumps and bruises.   These can be troublesome in the form of actual pain for the child and the pain moms go through in hearing about the pain or missing practice or how it was someone else’s fault.  ๐Ÿ˜‚

I have 5 tips for you when dealing with these kinds of injuries.  

  1. Confirm what they are saying about the injury/pain – repeat it back to them – so they know you are listening, and this may also it may trigger more discussions/descriptions about the pain that could be helpful for you.  
  2. Ask them the question “what do you think I should do for you” this will often give you insight into how they are really feeling.  If they say something specific like “I want an icepack” or “I want you to put Ortho Sport on it” that will a good place to start.  
  3. Ask them to perform some simple moves and watch their faces while they do them.  For example, if it’s a complaint of shoulder pain, ask them to move it around in different ways and see what their face tells you about their pain level.  Unless your family is in a poker club, their face will usually tell you what you need to know.
  4. Ask them  “How is your pain on a scale of 1-10 (1 being everything is wonderful and normal and 10 is we need to go to the hospital now)”.   This may not tell you everything you need to know right now, but after you’ve done #2, you can ask this question again and see how it’s changing or if it is at all.  
  5. Take some notes in your bullet journal!  It is always helpful to refer back and know when something started, what they said, what happened when the pain started, etc.  especially if you end up at the doctor with the issue.  This information is gold when it comes to getting back to normal quickly.  
Injuries are going to happen, but it’s not the end of the world.  Everything is figuroutable!  If you’re like me, the phrase “we can’t go to the hospital right now, it’s covid season” has been used too many times to count in the last year!  ๐Ÿ˜‚  I have put together a masterclass on some of the ways I take care of my athletes at home in regards to sleep, keeping them healthy, dealing with minor injuries, and more!  I explain some simple shifts you can make to implement some of these strategies at your home too!  I am not a doctor and I absolutely will go to one when needed but many times, I rely on my gut instinct to try some things at home first and it works well for us.  
 
I have also relied heavily on my bullet journal for keeping track of everything, not just injuries, but schedules, to do lists, meal planning and more.  I highly recommend this simple way to keep things organized in one notebook.  This is also a great place to keep a list of medicines your athlete takes, or allergies they have or any other important information that you might need to tell a medical professional in the event something serious happens.  When that kind of situation arises, it's best to have a sheet of paper you can rip out of your notebook rather than relying on your adrenaline filled brain to remember the details they need.

I’ll be releasing a course in the near future about how to implement this bullet journal method for your life too!  You won’t want to miss out on this!  Jump on the waitlist for the course and so you can get notified when it launches and snag a coupon code for ½ off the course!  

You got this momma!
