Keep Calm Mother On! with Christy Thomas

Jan 21, 2022

Today's episode is inspired by American Journalist, Adam Grant's Tweet: In toxic cultures, being a workaholic is normalized and sacrificing sleep is glorified. The best way to get ahead is to burn out. In healthy cultures, quality of life is expected and having a life is celebrated. You're encouraged to put your well-being above your work.


I then took a quick poll to see if American Motherhood fell into the "toxic" or "healthy" part of this definition.  This podcast is my response.

Self-Care:  Look back on early photos from your time mothering.  Tell yourself thank you for your radical optimism and hard work.


Family Fun:  Have an art hour.  Drag out all the art supplies and cover the dining room table or the floor.  No phones allowed, just music, and the human characteristics of curiosity and creativity.  Use the markers and crayons and stickers and watercolors all at the same time.
