Combining the thoughtful and expert narrative of a veteran mom of four children with the voices of hundreds of moms she surveyed, The Self-Care Solution offers insightful answers to poignant questions about how mothers take care of themselves, their relationships, and their jobs while raising their children—and how they don’t. Here, mothers reveal their struggles with self-care, and the consequences of neglecting themselves and their relationships, and share successful strategies to combat these issues. Each chapter also includes reflective self-assessment questions for mothers to gauge where they are from a self-care standpoint, as well as lists of tried and true tools they can employ to achieve more balance, and ultimately more satisfaction, within themselves and in their relationships. Inspirational yet practical, The Self-Care Solution will dramatically impact women who are navigating the critical responsibility of motherhood while attempting to stay true to themselves.

Get powerful tools to nurture and replenish your body and mind in The Empowered Mama Moms who work are trying to juggle the roles of wife, mother, and homemaker while also being professional, competent businesswomen. They never feel they get enough done, but they rarely acknowledge that they are wife, mother, lover, friend, cook, nurse, housekeeper, businessperson, driver, volunteer, dog walker, and more. Many moms feel like they can't take time to replenish their bodies or minds. There's just not enough time and it seems selfish to take time when families and work still demand more. The Empowered Mama is a practical and interactive workbook full of simple, powerful tools to help moms reconnect with themselves on the journey through motherhood. Author Lisa Druxman uplifts, inspires, and takes moms on a journey not just to rediscover themselves but to fall in love with motherhood again. Whether you are a working mom or a stay-at-home mom, this book will add balance to your life. This book focuses on all the other parts of a mom's life - relationships at work, tackling built-up stressors, cleaning up one's diet, even going green and being more mindful about the environment - with the intuitive understanding that getting the rest of your life in order will only reap huge dividends for your family. Since there will never be more hours in the day, The Empowered Mama will help you maximize the hours you do have to accomplish what matters most.

With the support of the Beyond Mom community behind you, Randi provides the guidance and the tools women need to find their strength, body, and mind, thus laying the integral foundation to bring entrepreneurial ideas to fruition. Her distinct approach is as practically accessible as it is holistic—a former yoga teacher who also possesses a decade of experience as an acting CEO, she knows that personal well-being is critically connected to any thriving business venture. Because the first step to personal wellness and idea growth begins with you. In addition, each chapter features an interview from the Beyond Mom network of celebrity moms, successful businesswomen, and clients, like bestselling author and coach Alexandra Jamieson, renowned psychotherapist Terri Cole, IntenSati founder Patricia Moreno, and author/anthropologist Wednesday Martin, just to name a few. Honest, smart, and relatable, Randi provides wisdom and encouragement to build entrepreneurs (who are also moms) from deep within!
