Episode #51- The Power of Music in Raising a Family
Music is powerful. It can bring up a memory, change a mood, inspire, uplift, comfort, heal. Music is also a powerful way to strengthen families. It not only helps us learn, develop, and grow; music can strengthen family relationships, understanding, and emotional connection and help our children grow, too. Today, I’m talking with Thomas Byers, M.A., guitarist, teacher, and creator of the “Guitar for All” program through www.ThomasByersGuitar.com. In this fun episode, Thomas and I have a great time discussing the many ways we can incorporate music into our families– to build, strengthen, teach, and create joy. Laugh, learn, and be inspired with us on Motherhood radio!

– The Self-Care Solution
If there’s one thing we talk about all the time on Motherhood, it’s self-care–because it’s one the thing we moms need most. Taking time for yourself to nourish, nurture, and care for your mind, body, and soul is one of the best things you can do for your family, though it may also be one of the the toughest. I’m talking with author of The Self-Care Solution, Julie Burton, in this episode about what self-care truly means, how to overcome the guilt, and give yourself the permission you need to practice powerful self-care!

I’m talking with psychologist and author Dr. Leslie Korn about her latest book, “Nutrition Essentials for Mental Health: A complete guide to the food-mood connection.” She’s sharing practical solutions for how to strengthen your brain, emotional health, and raise healthy kids, and many of them will surprise you!

– Mom Mind & Emotional Wellness
Motherhood is, by nature, an emotional roller-coaster of highs and lows and everything in between. Worry, fear, anxiety, stress, sorrow, are each part of mothering at some point, and they all begin with the mind. What can we do to identify emotional challenges–in pregnancy, postpartum, and beyond? And how can we overcome them? I’m talking with Dr. Kat Kaeni, producer of the “Mom and Mind” podcast (www.momandmind.com) about how to get and keep your “mom mind” in tip-top shape for the best possible motherhood experience.
