Working parents manage multiple priorities and demands can feel intense.
Many working parents work hard to do well at work and be a great parent and partner. Parents often feel pressure to juggle multiple priorities and meet the expectations of others. ‘I should do more.’ or ‘I need a break.’ can be familiar thoughts. Parents can feel frustration or worry and experience tension in their body. Parents believe they are doing what needs to be done based on beliefs and attitudes picked up from the world around them. The costs of this reactive behaviour is high and often hidden, with damaged relationships and missed opportunities being hard to measure.
Your thoughts, emotions and physical sensations provide information where you may be stuck. Tone of voice. Clenched jaws. Pressure in the chest. While these can be normal responses, you don’t need to become stuck in reactive patterns of behaviour. Your reactions can impact more than your individual health and wellbeing. These reactions can negatively impact important people in your life: your children; your partner; your boss; your coworkers and more. How you react to what is happening around you can get in the way of what is important.
You can resolve reactive behaviour to feel better.
You may be familiar with experiencing reactive behaviour as a working parent. It can feel challenging to let go of this behaviour because it is dictated by powerful beliefs and attitudes. While your reactions are based on your gender, your role at work and past experiences, everyone experiences reactive behaviour that can get in the way of what is important. Learning how to resolve the triggers related to beliefs and past experiences allows you to free your energy. You will have a greater sense of calm and clarity. Rather than being driven by automatic, your energy is available to make choices and take meaningful action.
