When you're a busy mum carrying the bulk of the mental load of running a house, raising children and often outside work as well. It's easy to feel disconnected when you are a busy mum; to feel that the life you are leading isn't quite what you expected; to feel unseen, unheard and not valued.
This wasn't what parenting was meant to feel like. That voice inside your head says "I should be spending more time playing with the children, I should be home earlier, I shouldn't yell, I should be calmer."
When you feel that disconnect from how you would like things to be and how they are - where do you start?
In the video I outline one way you can begin to bridge the connection gap. To increase your sense of being valued and create a renewed sense of self.
