A note on the printable PDF handout – you may type directly on this handout or you can print it out to handwrite your answers. It is completely up to you.

We are talking about Focusing Your Energy Effectively – in other words, Self Care. This is a common topic for moms to chat about, but do we really understand how critical it is for us to have success in our motherhood journey?

I have shared many times on the blog before (one in particular) because I need to be reminded that it really is a non-negotiable item on our to-do list. And I shared a post which created a little controversy around my title!

Welcome to Week 1 of The Opening Act

Becoming the Calm, Cool and Confident Mom You Want to Be!

I am so glad to have you here. My prayer is that over the next five weeks I can help you develop some new habits to enjoy motherhood in a different way. One of the best parts of this journey will be that it is FREE – it will cost you nothing but your time investment – but after all, isn’t your family worth it?  

Putting It into Practice Handout for Week 1

Each week I will have a short video for you to watch, as well as a Putting It into Practice handout. It is that simple!

I mention the book ScreamFree Parenting by Hal Runkel in this video. It was critical in my shift of thinking and I suggest you grab a copy to supplement your journey over the next few weeks.

Please share what resonates with you in the comments. Your sharing will encourage others. Come back during the week to check in too. I’d love to hear how it’s going.
