Podcast Episode 214: How to Make More Time for Family in 2019

Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 214 of The New Family Podcast, where we explore how to achieve a healthy balance in our different roles as parents.

I don’t think I’ve met a parent who doesn’t feel — at least some of the time — that the 24 hours in a day are insufficient. With the year coming to a close the day this episode goes live on New Year’s Eve day, it seemed like a perfect time to examine how we spend our time and how we can get more fulfillment out of our days as our families enter the new year. That’s why I’m so delighted to have snagged an interview with New York Times bestselling author Julie Morgenstern for this episode. Julie is a time management expert whose holistic approach to how we spend our days has been shared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Rachael Ray Show, Today and more. She’s the author of a new book called Time To Parent: Organizing Your Life to Bring Out the Best in Your Child and You. This book is far, far more than a set of instructions for turning you into a whiz with the calendar. Instead, it’s a holistic approach that helps parents find a healthy balance between raising a human and being a human.

Parenting Advice

“I think it comes back (to), if everybody just absorbed just one thing as you enter this New Year and you just change your way of thinking about both being there for your kids and being being there for yourself, from this notion of big, big blocks of time to short bursts delivered consistently both to be there for your kids and also to nurture yourself.”
