You know that feeling of overwhelm, all too well, don’t you?
We all experience it, but it’s been proven more so, for working moms.

You feel fine, but you realise you’re tense – holding your breath, clenched jaws, snapping for minor things gone wrong.. and a myriad other symptoms.

You’re either getting too little or too much sleep, eating less or more than you normally would. You could be on an emotional rollercoaster or you could be the calmest person alive – just waiting to explode lol.
