Navigating Overwhelm. With Stephanie Rosenfield

Navigating Overwhelm with Stephanie Rosenfield

My guest today is a speech therapist turned life coach for moms, supporting them in navigating overwhelm, among other things. The first step is learning to be aware of the negative emotions we might be feeling so we can diffuse and manage them.

We Talked About

  • The importance of finding your calm in Motherhood
  • Her four-step process of diffusing negative emotions
  • The buckets of emotional management 
  • What it means to be a Life Coach for Mothers

Things to Remember

“There is no right way to parent.”

“My body is the first indication that something is going to happen.”

“All of us went into motherhood wanting to experience joy and happiness and raise good humans. Society makes that difficult based on the expectations of moms.”

“Once you have control over how you feel, the next step is to be able to communicate differently.”

“Many of us tend to look to other people or experts on what to do with our lives. We outsource decision-making, which can be so disempowering.”

“Follow things that bring you joy and inspiration and unfollow those that don’t.”

“Creating the awareness on how you feel can lead to a diffusion.”

― Stephanie Rosenfield
