As a mom, you feel an overwhelming responsibility to put your loved ones needs before your own and if you don’t you feel guilty about it. However, I have quickly learned that this is not productive for anyone. We have to take care of ourselves in order to be at our best to help others. That is self-care 101 right there. Right now, this is especially hard to do because it seems so selfish, but it is important to make ourselves an equal priority.
Our mayor sent out an email including ways we can help our city while still staying at home! I really wanted to pass this along just in case, like me, you have felt restless and unsettled by not knowing what you can do to help.
Here is “What I Wore, Used and <3’ed This Week: Staying at Home.” This week has been part of a major transition period. I want to continue to share what I am using and loving throughout the week with you, but I also know some may not be in a spending mood. All good. I’m not really either but maybe these picks can help bring you guys a little browsing entertainment, inspiration or joy.
I hope everyone is being safe, smart and clean. I know it’s so scary right now! The media covering is overwhelming. There is a lot of information out there about what we should do to prevent getting this, however, I am not seeing that much about what to do if we contract it.
This week, on WITH WHIT, Ryan Manion joined me to discuss her inspiring journey with grief. Losing a family member or someone you love is the most devastating thing that can happen to a person. You are left with grief that you have absolutely no control over.
I can’t believe it’s already 2020! So much happened in 2019, yet it seemed to fly by. Does it feel like that for anyone else? One exciting thing that happened last year was I released my first podcast, WITH WHIT! Thank you so much to everyone who has tuned in and listened. This has been such an incredible journey of growth and LEARNING – seriously…I never thought I would learn so much doing this.
This week on WITH WHIT, I spoke with two inspiring women, Sharon Feldstein and Patsy Noah. They are BFFs, celebrity moms and the founders of YourMomCares! Sharon is Jonah Hill and Beanie Feldstein’s mom and Patsy Noah is Adam Levine’s mom! I was so excited to sit down with them to talk about their company YourMomCares, a non-profit fighting for children’s mental health.
I think it is safe to say that the majority of women in the United States are on some form of birth control. I was told to start taking the birth control pill when I was 18 years old for acne. This week on my podcast, WITH WHIT, I had an incredible conversation with Sarah E. Hill, PhD all about the birth control pill and the effects it has on women’s brains and hormones.
