Episode 71: Daring To Rest In Motherhood


Do you struggle to rest as a working mum?

Do you feel tired but you just feel like you can’t step off the hamster wheel of life?

Does your secret fantasy involve going away to a hotel for a weekend *just* to sleep?

Then this podcast episode is for you!

I’m interviewing Karen Brody, a rest teacher and founder of Daring To Rest.  I came across Karen and her work when I was deep in my own burnout journey.  Her book became my bible and was pivotal in me understanding what had led me to burn out and what I could do to take my power back and recover.

Karen is on a mission to support you to experience deep rest by sharing a life-changing, simple, restful transformational nap approach.  Teaching us to slow down and dare to rest.

In this episode Karen shares:

  • How her experience with panic attacks in early in her motherhood journey led her to do this work
  • How we value and protect rest for our children but not for ourselves
  • The rest messages we receive at an early age in our culture
  • How our modern society is set up for us being hyper-aroused and why we need rest more than ever
  • The powerful life direction that rest took her on that led to global success
  • That rest in the remedy for so many things in our lives
  • A life-changing 3-minute rest ritual
