As moms, doing it all comes with the title; from work, to school, to appointments, to household tasks. Moms work 24/7 and each situation carries a unique set of circumstances and stressors. This stress and potential for burnout can take a toll on their health, relationships, and happiness.
But mom power can be multiplied with the power of music. By identifying our stressors and understanding how to incorporate music in daily life we can reduce stress levels, increase relaxation, and promote wellness. Mom power is a force to be reckoned with and the power of music can multiply it!
