The COVID pandemic has shifted priorities for working mothers, and as time has gone by, more and more moms have had to rethink their happiness and decide if they really WANT to go back to normal.
Because who wants “normal” if it means going back to the chaos of our pre-pandemic lives?
Kelli shared tips that have worked for her during her pandemic shift, saying “I have been able to integrate my work and my life together by really just setting up a schedule for our family. I find a time that I’m focused, totally focused on my work, and then we have other fun things we do.”
During the segment, Emily discusses how the work-life balance model is broken and moms don’t want to go back to normal if “normal” means doing it all…again.
She says, “I feel that work-life balance was a struggle before the pandemic. Because, again, it made women in particular feel they had to completely own their work, and completely own their role as a mom, and if they failed at either one on a given day, they had made the wrong choice.”
Emily also tells moms to shift their thinking and be more selective about what they commit to both at work and home.
