Motherhood is a beautiful journey, but it can also be overwhelming and stressful at times. In this episode of the Purpose Driven Mom Show, Cara Harvey interviews Amber Trueblood, licensed marriage and family therapist, author, speaker, and coach, on coping strategies and self-acceptance for moms dealing with anxiety.

She explains how her new book, “The Unflustered Mom,” helps moms understand their anxiety styles and provides personalized strategies to manage anxiety. Amber emphasizes the importance of self-awareness, self-acceptance, and celebrating your strengths while also identifying areas where you may need to make changes.

The conversation touches on the different types of anxiety and the challenges of explaining it to others. Amber provides preventative and in-the-moment strategies tailored to each anxiety style, as well as tips for creating an emotional emergency support plan. She also encourages moms to create a safe and supportive community and model healthy coping strategies for their children.

Cara and Amber stress the importance of open communication and seeking help when needed. This episode offers practical advice, resources, and encouragement for moms struggling with anxiety, and emphasizes the impact it can have on oneself and others.

If you’re a mom dealing with anxiety, don’t hesitate to reach out for help and support. Amber’s book and website offer personalized strategies and resources, and the Purpose Driven Mom Summit provides practical tips for summer routines for work-at-home moms.
