How Parents can be Intentional About Both Productivity and Rest

Depending on how you were raised, you lean more towards a highly driven, highly scheduled, productivity mindset OR a more laid back, rest focused mindset where nurturing relationships is prioritized. Parenting can be exhausting…so how can you be intentional about getting things done AND getting proper rest and connection with the people around you?

In this episode, I talk about a method my husband and I have implemented that has helped create a better balance between driving tasks and resting and connecting. It’s called “LOCKDOWN” on our calendar. Take a listen and see how locking down time on your calendar can help your family, too!
