I think it goes without saying that it’s an exceptionally busy time for most moms right now. The pandemic has added a whole new layer of responsibility, activity, and stress to parenting — and to life, in general — that we often forget to take time for ourselves.
This is just what motivated Tracey Coates, a family lawyer, host of the podcast The Tracey Coates Show, and mom of two children to launch Time 4 Mom. The monthly curated subscription box and online community for busy moms was created to inspire personal growth, self-care, and a little bit of me-time.
“As a busy mom of two very active kids, a wife, a daughter, sister and friend, I’ve constantly got a dozen balls in the air trying to juggle motherhood, my family law practice, my marriage, and my podcast,” says Tracey. “Trying to make time for me often falls miserably by the wayside. I realize that we moms can’t be everything to everyone all of the time, and we’ve got to start prioritizing ourselves and stop landing last on our endless “to-do” lists, which is why I created Time 4 Mom.”
What’s unique about Time 4 Mom is that subscribers get more than the monthly subscription offerings. In addition to receiving a fun box of thoughtfully created goodies each month, subscribers are invited to join a private Facebook community to connect with other amazing Moms, enjoy periodic book club meetings to spark meaningful conversations, and participate in monthly virtual trainings to inspire personal growth (starting January 2021).
October’s box is focused on the theme of refresh and recharge and includes products related to finding time for yourself and filling a need for self-care during the pandemic. One item inside is a copy of the month’s book club selection, Nicole Lapin’s Becoming Super Woman, a simple 12-step plan to go from burnout to balance.
In upcoming months, Time 4 Mom will focus on stress, health, mindset, relationships, parenting, and more. Download a free Time 4 Mom Self-Care & Time Management Bundle here.
