"Hot Mess to Mindful Mom" Ali Katz joins hosts Lisa and Andrea to offer tips to work through the chaos. 

  • Prepare in advance. Let "Sunday set you up." Prepare meals in advance, tidy up the house, etc.
  • Make to-do lists and coordinate daily tasks with your master calendar. 
  • Schedule a few minutes to do some deep breathing or recite affirmations in order to center yourself. 
  • Make eye contact whenever possible when asking for tasks and actions to be done, in order to avoid eventual yelling and screaming.
  • Take some time to think before you dole out consequences, much like your own "time out." This will prevent you from assigning ones that are unrealistic. 
  • Plus much more...
Listen in for more insight and tips from Ali, as well as how she navigated her journey to mindful expertise.
