Feat - My podcast interview with What Is Family

[Podcast] From Burnout To Becoming A Self-Care Advocate: My Journey

I was lucky enough recently to be invited for an interview with Ash and CJ for their 'What Is Family?' Podcast. Listen in on our amazing chat, where we discuss what it means to be parents in this modern world while finding balance through self-care!

When I was invited for this podcast interview, I had no idea just how much fun it would be! While only 30 minutes of our chat made it to air, we were actually blabbering away for more than an hour. 

Let me tell you, there are few things more fun than clicking with people right away!

I’ll go over some of the key things we chat about in our half-hour conversation, but first I need to shine a spotlight on the wonderful couple who run the ’What Is Family?’ podcast. 

About the What Is Family? Podcast

Hosts Ash and CJ are parents to a toddler and co-parents to a 9-year-old, and like the rest of us, they’re just trying their best to navigate this parenting thing without a handbook. 

Together, they own a small business called The Lil Moments, where they create self-care boxes chock full of amazing products for busy mums to indulge in much-needed self-care.

Beyond being an amazing resource of knowledge for parents, their ‘What Is Family?’ podcast allows for mums to share refreshingly honest takes on what family means to us. 

I’m so happy that Ash and CJ are developing this platform to allow us to have a voice, and feel connected, through what is quite an isolating experience – parenthood.
