SLEEP WEEK continues! In this bonus episode with Marietta Paxson, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, we talk about real scenarios she faces as a therapist, sleep consultant, and mom.

Marietta has seen in both her clients and her own children how sleep impacts behavior and health. She shares tips for creating boundaries around bedtime routines, how to curb endless bedtime requests, and more.

Marietta runs Little Dreamers, a priceless resource where she works with families to make an individualized plan to help their infants and toddlers get the sleep they need.

How to Accomplish Big Projects in your (Rare) Spare Moments as a Mom // April Perry of Learn Do Become

How to Accomplish Big Projects as a Mom

If you often go to bed feeling like you will never get caught up on all of your responsibilities, wondering how you could’ve worked so hard all day and still have a massive to-do list, this episode is for you.

April Perry, the co-founder of the websites Power of Moms and Learn Do Become, shares a step-by-step process for accomplishing big projects, even when you have very little free time.  April has spent thousands of hours developing an organization system that help important people–from business leaders to mothers–control the chaos in their *minds* so they can focus on their true priorities,.

In this episode, April explains this process in detail:

1) Make an ACCURATE list of all of the projects you have brewing in your mind.  (Include for your family, for you, and beyond.)

2) Narrow that list to no more than 7-8 projects to tackle this month.  Put that shorter list in a visible place to reference often.

3) Using that list, identify tiny “next actions” that will move each project forward.

054: What If I’m Jealous? // Monica Packer of About Progress

Have you ever been a little bit jealous, even of a good friend? I’m guessing the answer is YES because most of us face jealousy to varying degrees and in various forms throughout our lives.

In this episode, I talk openly with my dear friend and podcasting colleague, Monica Packer of About Progress, about how we have been jealous of each other at times–and what we’ve decided to *do* with that emotion.

Monica shares three “dive deep” questions to ask yourself if you recognize that you’re feeling jealous and if you want to use that feeling to become a better person and friend.  (Yes, it’s possible!)

Don’t miss this honest, heartfelt episode, and let us know what it makes you think about in your own life!

033: How to Get Your Kids to Do Quiet Time

Thank you so very much for leaving Reviews on my podcast this week for my birthday!  I absolutely loved reading your words.  This extra episode is my way of saying, “THANK YOU–I LOVE YOU!”

Instituting a daily Quiet Time is one of the BEST things I’ve done for my kids (and for me!).  But I know it’s not always easy to do it, especially with strong willed kiddos.  I hope my three tips will help you to start this routine in your family!
