Today we’re talking about why mental stress in motherhood matters.
Moms are stressed out now more than ever. A global pandemic has made it very clear that when society fails, we turn to mothers as the stopgap.
But moms were stressed long before the pandemic.
It's baked into the job.
Yes, at least now motherhood is recognized as a job. But it's a job without pay, benefits, colleagues, a supervisor, and finite work hours.
And because so much of our work is invisible, even the folks who benefit from our work (i.e. our awesome family) don't understand that we're WORKING all the time.
Check out the video below if you need some helpful perspective and ideas for making a change.
Despite the challenges, we are all working to reduce the mental stress in motherhood so we can enjoy the good stuff with our kids!
