The Motherhood Mix
Sorry I missed last week! I hope you and your family have been doing well and staying healthy!
This week, we’ve got a report on modern fatherhood, how you can “brag better” in your career, and a quick trick to calm down when worry/anxiety are getting the best of you.
Research shows that modern dads spend 3 times as much time with their children as our grandfathers’ generation.

But, apparently there’s such a thing as dad guilt.
Feel like you could do a better job of talking about your accomplishments at work? Or, maybe you want to use your privilege/power to help someone else get the recognition they deserve. An author shares some advice on how to do just that.
If stress or anxiety are getting the best of you, this breathing technique seems like a great way to center yourself. The author says this trick works well because it requires you to use more of your senses.
