Motherhood is not an easy prospect. Expectation of our behavior is high, we are to raise our children, spend time with friends, take care of our household, stay with a partner, work (for money) or not work. How do we cope? We work out, go to counseling, meditate, journal, bake delicious meals, embrace the chaos, but in fact, mothers drink alcohol at Saturday lunch, at Sunday Brunch, while cooking dinner or after our children are in bed.
We are showered with messages that alcohol will wash our problems away, it will make the days more sparkly and the evenings more bearable. The messages are false promises for us and for our children. Instead, you snap at your children, you fall asleep on the couch, waking up with a headache and lack of routine. Or you forget permission slips, homework assignments… At 5pm, when you are picking up your children your heart pounds in anticipation of that first sip of crisp cool Skinny Girl wine. Perhaps your children are vying for your attention or dragging their feet, and instead of slowing down the moment you snap because the bottle is calling your name, not Mom, Mommy, Mama, but your actual name.
Is alcohol causing your life as a woman and a mother to be less than ideal? Are you ready to focus on your mental wellness and physical…… while taming the chaos at home? Have you had one too many arguments with your children? Maybe it is time to reach out to Recover Your Family.
Mother Strong Coaching Program
Individual coaching is provided for Mothers who are in recovery, seeking recovery or sober curious. Addiction is a family disease, but mothers take on the disease and the family life. Moms feel personally responsible for keeping everything together, fearing for her family’s survival. We feel fear, stress, anxiety, resentment, anger and stress-related health issues.
Over 20 years of mothering, training as a health and wellness coach as well as recovery coach she understands how our children’s life can get in the way of your life. Her program focuses on your mental wellness, physical wellness, and spiritual growth.
Do you need to build yourself up so you can meet the demanding needs of the disease without losing yourself along the way? Are your “shoulds’ getting in the way of your growth and happiness? What are you avoiding, and how is it hurting you? Personal Healing takes time and includes developing an understanding of how-to best care for yourself in the presence of the chaos that accompanies this disease.
