I brought a beautiful woman on the show today who has three permission slips that she wants to give her fellow moms.
Kris Rice, is the founder of Deconstructing Wellness, and she empowers high-achieving mamas to prioritize their wellness without feeling like they have to spend 3-hours a day meditating!
Hallelujah! In this episode, we’re going to talk about overall wellness, and let me just share, in Kris’s own words, what she sent to me before we recorded this episode, that,
“Despite the pandemic moving high-performing women from the boardroom to the kitchen table, for many of them this doesn’t mean downtime. It most likely means pushing to achieve even more, with kids and partners being at home, while still exceeding in their roles at work. Now that it’s been months of the “new normal” many of us are struggling to keep it all together.”
“Sometimes, we just need someone else to tell us that it’s okay. That we’re not failures because we want to slow down or pause for a minute. My vision is to take this opportunity that we have to reset and issue these women a permission slip - the permission to yes, use this time wisely and productively, and to also indulge in themselves - a luxury they don’t likely make much time for.”
Ugghghh this is so good, and feels so refreshing, and is exactly why I brought her on the show today. Kris is here to help you free yourself of self-imposed guilt, shame and judgement. In Kris’s own words,
“To finally feel a sense of acceptance to slow down, recharge and give back to themselves the way they do to others every single day.”
The three key areas that Kris would like to invite you to be flexible in are: Permission to shift your morning routine. According to Kris,
“Shifting your morning routine doesn’t make you a failure, it makes you amenable to circumstances.”
Permission to repurpose your time. According to Kris,
“Not everything has to be go-go-go all the time, it is OKAY to pick up a new hobby that has nothing to do with career success!”
Permission to feel the feels. Kris says that
"Once we’ve moved through our feelings, not making them wrong, then we can look toward how we can shift positively.”
