333: How are you holding up? 3 ways to keep going

I chose this picture for today’s episode because, for some reason, the idea that butterflies have no idea that we’re in a pandemic is helping me feel better about the whole thing

“I feel like I’m completely alone trying to meet completely insatiable needs for days on end.”
That is what one of the moms in my online coaching practice, the Ninja Parenting Community, wrote early last week.

She’s not the only one. Not by a longshot!
In this week’s episode I share my best ideas for getting through a crisis.
Even a slow-motion, simultaneously-terrifying-and-tedious, pandemic-induced crisis like the one we’re in now in June 2020.

If your energy, patience, and/or well-being is flagging, first of all let me offer HUGE hugs!
Listen to this episode for some practical things you can do to get through the toughest of these tough times.

For the all-summer-long live Masterclass series, “Parenting in Place,” which features lots of WTOO beloved guests and friends, like Audrey Monke, Jessica Lahey, and Devorah Heitner, click here! (I’m signed up for it, and I hope you’ll sign up too!)

Ninja Parent Playbook!
Want to be a part of the (extremely limited) first-ever issue of the Ninja Parent Playbook?
This is the brainwave I mentioned briefly in last week’s episode – a newsletter to help you keep going, anchored by a calendar that gives you some small step to take every day.
But it’s so much more than that. It’s part workbook, part inspirational thinking, part marching orders to keep you on track. It’s packed with informative and thoughtful ideas to help you not just “live through” this (or any) crisis – but really, truly LIVE.
If you want to bring your family safely through hard times, while feeling not just as if you’re scraping by but as if you are happy within yourself and in your family, you need this newsletter!
It’s a monthly publication that comes in your mailbox! (If you’re outside the US at this point it needs to be a PDF into your email, although I’m hoping that will change in the future : )
