Episode 59 - Exploring The Invisible Load Of Motherhood: Practical Insights From A Productivity Specialist

Valerie Recore is a productivity specialist who focuses on helping women to overcome the challenges that mothers face in balancing multiple roles and expectations. From the overwhelming pressure to "have it all" to the invisible load of household responsibilities, Valerie shares her insights and strategies for reclaiming time, setting priorities, and finding balance.

Valerie shares her tips on:

How to prioritize and focus: It's important for moms to identify their long-term goals, values, and priorities. By breaking down big tasks into smaller steps and focusing on 3 to 5 key tasks for the day, you can prevent overwhelm and achieve more.

Communication and Fair Play: Sharing responsibilities with your co-parent is essential. The fair play method, which involves discussing goals, values, and expectations for completing tasks, can help create a balanced household dynamic. Flexibility and adjusting responsibilities over time are crucial, especially during transitions.

Share the Load: The "invisible load" of mental burden often falls on moms. Delegating tasks, involving other household members, and letting go of control are essential steps to lighten the load. By making the invisible visible, you can create a more balanced and appreciated household environment.

Join us as we explore the realities of modern motherhood and discover ways to redefine our approach to time management that helps us feel more in control with time to do the things that bring joy.
