It’s true, moms are struggling with burnout. Is it more work to let dad’s help?
Sarah Sperry, health coach & personal trainer, founder of Sperry Wellness joined us last May to talk about Beating Mom Burnout. While identifying red flags and learning how to prevent future burnout is helpful, Sarah takes it a step further this time. For instance, she shares some incredible resources that she has found useful within her own marriage and her clients.
Featured in The Wall Street Journal, Moms Are Struggling with Burnout. Is It More Work to Let Dads Help? Sarah unpacks the reality of the emotional toll it takes to be the parent that manages the majority of the household.
“Moms have been struggling to hold it together for a long time. They have become extreme multitaskers, playing whack – a – mole with emails, texts, calendar apps and other alerts – technology that both helps and adds to the feeling of overwhelm.”
Beautifully outlining the mental load that we, as mothers carry in conjunction with knowing and understanding that the father is typically willing to take on more of the tasks. Sarah acknowledges that in order to have split household duties, it requires communication. Which brings me to my next point; it’s not always easy asking for help or explaining where you need assistance. The resources listed below have a track record of great success in breaking down those communication barriers and forming that partnership we know, both partners desire to have.
I am excited to share with you that through this article there are three incredible resources.
