For working mothers who face endless demands on their time and attention, What Happy Working Mothers Know provides scientifically proven and practical ways to replace stress with contentment and find the right balance between work, motherhood, and life. Your own happiness is important—because happy moms make better moms and more successful professionals. What Happy Working Mothers Know reveals that the key to being your best is to take care of your happiness the same way you take care of your health—through conscious daily choices. Cathy Greenberg and Barrett Avigdor explain how you can use positive psychology to shift from a mentality of scarcity to one of abundance to create happiness for yourself and those around you, even when you're at your very busiest. Based on new scientific research, this mom-friendly guide gives you the practical advice and effective strategies you need to be a great mom and a great professional without sacrificing your own happiness. You'll learn to apply lessons learned at work to your motherhood skills (and vice versa), as well as how to avoid "happiness traps" like trying to be Supermom, doubting yourself, or believing that you are your job. Inside, you'll find handy, effective tools to avoid these traps and meet a host of courageous women who share their stories and how they found their own happiness. Many moms raise great kids and achieve the personal and professional success they desire and deserve—but at what cost? What Happy Working Mothers Know doesn't show you how to have it all, but how to have all the things that really matter—including your own happiness. Download and start listening now!
