What Did We Discuss?

In this episode, we chat with Dr. Sheryl about mommy burnout and how to navigate and reclaim your life, all while raising healthy and happy children. Here are several of the questions that we covered in our conversation:

  • How would you define “mommy burnout” to someone who isn’t familiar with the term?
  • What are some signs that someone might be experiencing mommy burnout?

  • While sometimes fun, social media can be another major source of stress for moms. How does comparison culture impact moms and contribute to burnout?
  • How important is setting boundaries in managing burnout? How do you recommend moms start this process?
  • How can partners, family, and friends support a mom who is experiencing burnout?
  • When a mom is burnt out, how does that affect the rest of the family?
