I get asked this question quite a bit and I want YOUR HELP answering it. As the host of FitandFearLESS.tv, I certainly have my own opinion….but I want YOURS!
Does adventure for moms even matter? Absolutely! More and more research is being done that shows the number one factor for raising happy kids is simply having a HAPPY MOM. (see here: Raising Happiness: 10 Simple Steps for More Joyful Kids & Happier Parents)
Not a rich mom, married mom, or beautiful mom – just a HAPPY one. This is something we can ALL achieve with a little self-love and understanding. No more mommy guilt! It’s OK to admit we get annoyed by the carpool lane, that we enjoy taking a bubble bath uninterrupted, and that we still have a life outside of motherhood. (Feel free to chime in?)
I was blessed with the opportunity to discuss this exact topic on Mom Life recently. Jen and Barb are amazing glamaMOMS and I had an absolute blast! I wanted to share with you a couple behind the scene pictures before you see the final, edited episode….top secret, k?
While I don’t want to “spoil” the show before it airs, I would LOVE to get your two cents!
