The Shameless Mom Academy

Sara Dean launched the Shameless Mom Academy to help moms lead more positive, powerful and purposeful lives #everydamnday. Sara is an award winning fitness professional, author, speaker, and transformation coach who spent the last 16+ years serving moms in the fields of psychology, sociology, health & wellness. But, it took becoming a mom herself in 2012 to learn that - holy cow - this is hard work, and if you’re not paying attention you can completely lose your own sense of identity while raising babies. Join Sara every Monday and Wednesday as she and her notable guests (such as Gretchen Rubin, Carrie Wilkerson, JJ Virgin, Susan Hyatt, Cathy Heller, Nichole Nordeman, Melanie Shankle, and Jadah Sellner) dig deep into topics like creating the confidence you crave; turn your struggles into strengths, building better boundaries, and tuning into tiny habits that can change your life. Discover how why thousands of moms all over the world are turning to The Shameless Mom Academy to live bigger, bolder, braver lives #everydamnday.

We’re at a time of year when people are preparing for transitions.  Maybe you’re getting ready to send your child to a new school – or maybe his/her first school ever (tear…)  Maybe you’re getting ready to send your child off to college.  Maybe you’re preparing to return to school yourself.  Maybe you’re getting ready for a new job or a new season or position in your current job.  Maybe you’re getting ready to add a child to your family (I’ve learned I have some “secret pregnant” followers – sending you toooons of love, mamas!)

 

You probably know by now that I’ve been preparing for IVF.  It’s been a long process of preparation, as nothing happens quickly in The Land of the Infertile.  I sat down to note the steps I’ve taken to prepare, as I thought this might be helpful to you as you anticipate a change or a transition in life.  

 

These are the things I’ve done to mentally prepare for IVF, but you can apply them to many other situations.  I would love to hear how they might apply to something big you have coming up.  Shoot me a message [sara@shamelessmom.com] and let me know!

 

6 Ways to Mentally Prepare for Anything

  1. Don’t be tied to outcomes
  2. Plan rewards for all outcomes 
  3. ID all pros and cons in advance
  4. Know your strengths and weaknesses
  5. ID your support system
  6. Clear extra “stuff” out of your life

 

 

Listen in and see how you can apply these to your life.  Please share this episode if you think it might help someone else who is facing a big event or transition.  For those of you about to tackle big things, know I am with you and I have your back. Always.
