Why We Struggle When We Feel Happy and Sad About Being a Mom with Kelly Smith
Show Notes

As mothers, we often feel guilty for having opposing feelings about motherhood. We tell ourselves that we should be grateful for everything that we do have which only negates our feeling when we aren't “loving” being a mom at the moment. But guess what, you can be both happy and sad about being a moms. That’s okay. 

In this podcast we talk with Kelly Smith, a globally celebrated yoga and meditation teacher, founder of Yoga For You, and host of the podcasts, Mindful In Minutes and Meditation Mama. Kelly believes that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to yoga and meditation and encourages her students to find their own personal practice, listen to their bodies, and find inner joy by accessing their most authentic selves and owning their power. 

We talk about how sometimes we are just “touched out” and how important it is to be kinder to yourself, and allow yourself to feel happy and sad about being a mom.
