Routines are crucial to a happy mom life, but what happens when the same-old-same-old needs some shaking up? In this episode, the latest in our “More Than Mom” Hour series, Meagan and Sarah talk about the importance of trying new things as a mom – whether it’s a new hairstyle, new recipes, or a new workout routine – and what to do if you have a hard time breaking out of old habits. Enjoy!

What’s new in your life, mamas? Let us know!
One of you made the comment in the show that when your kids went to school you felt like you needed to flex the muscle of planning activities and filling school time and not letting that time be frittered away. I’m glad I’m not the only one! Sometime I feel like I waste the school day and then run around like crazy when the kids get home to get everything done that I need to do. I get jittery when I have an empty morning and sometimes I don’t feel like I don’t know where to start. Since I have recognized this problem I now try to have a set schedule with my whole day planned. This works most of the time, but then I have to remember to plan a little time to do nothing and take care of myself! =)
