Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
Busy moms wondering how they are going to juggle the demands of the holidays with the demands of a family and still find time for themselves can now get a little extra help in the run up to Christmas. The latest book from The Mom Strategist, Mia Redrick is out now and designed to help moms cope.
Recently featured on The New Ricki Lake Show, Time for Mom-Me: 365 Daily Strategies for A Mother’s Self-Care is a yearly journal which coaches, encourages and supports. Indispensable during the holidays, it is also a failsafe through the year with a range of practical tools, accessible bite-sized tips and carefully considered questions to help moms blend self-care into their daily lives in just 15 minutes a day while also nurturing the needs of their families.
Cutting right to the heart of the demands placed on women by themselves, childcare, family responsibilities, jobs and other commitments, Time for Mom-Me: 365 Daily Strategies for A Mother’s Self-Care helps women to take control of their timetables, even as the festivities close in. The book references the authors experiences coaching thousands of women, including hosting 167 Time for Mom-Me self-care groups around the country that teach moms that self-care is an important part of motherhood.
Author Mia Redrick says, This book is all about helping moms cope. I am a mom of three so I know how important it is to make time for me but also, how difficult it can be to get that time each day. Over the last 14 years I have made “me time” dates an important part of my motherhood journey. As a result all of the resources, the tasks, the accompanying web site articles, videos, blog posts have been compiled to do just one thing equip moms handling hectic schedules and family responsibilities to take a few minutes a day for their own needs. I am a mom that has done this in my own life and who has coached thousands of moms to do the same so it is not hypothetical advice, but a selection of tried and tested tips that really work.
We recently discovered that almost 60% of moms feel like they are only able to have me time late at night or very early in the morning while everyone else sleeps which gives some insight into how much pressure women are under to put everyone else first. This only escalates during the holidays when so much is going on so the book is really about helping moms find balance.
For all moms, be they stay-at-home, career moms, self-employed women or moms who work part time, finding time to self-connect and assign meaning is essential to enjoying a balanced, better life.
The book is split in to daily sections, with each page giving the reader five items to help on the journey to successful self-care that day: a word of the day, a self-care strategy of the day, an action plan for the day, a question of the day and a list of the day. A PDF worksheet which can be printed out or completed online helps to track the journey, showing what works and providing a point of reflection as the year progresses. This structure helps moms to give time to friends and family while also taking a few minutes out to uncover daily opportunities to enhance their own emotional, physical and spiritual wellness.
Showing just how effective the Time for Mom-Me: 365 Daily Strategies for A Mother’s Self-Care strategy can be, The Mom Strategist was called in by talk-show host Ricki Lake to help one overwhelmed mom on The New Ricki Lake Show. With mom Ally confessing that she had actually considered divorcing her husband James simply to get some time away from the kids, Mia Redrick helped Ally to work through her feelings and find a better balance, using her book to provide an ongoing framework.
Available to purchase in paperback from all good book stores including Barnes & Noble and Amazon, Time for Mom-Me: 365 Daily Strategies for A Mother’s Self-Care makes an excellent stocking stuffer or Christmas present. It is priced at $ 19.99.
