Hello Modish Mommies! Today I want to talk about anxiety. Specifically, I would like to briefly explore what it is, how it impacts each of us, and ways to manage it on a day to day basis. The American Psychological Association defines anxiety as “an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure. People with anxiety disorders usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. They may avoid certain situations out of worry. They may also have physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, dizziness

Saia’s dad and I always tried to implement healthy eating habits in our home but we could never stick to it. Before I had Saia, I just knew my child would eat organic everything and never eat fast food (except for Chick-Fil-A lol) but some days McDonald’s ended up being our only option. Recently, I noticed that she was constantly asking me to eat McDonald’s even on days when I cooked a home cooked meal. I began to feel guilty as a parent because I never wanted my child to

As a busy mom, it can be difficult to get the quality of sleep that is necessary for you to maintain your overall physical, emotional, and mental health- especially for moms who have infants or toddlers. You see, human beings are not born knowing how to put themselves to sleep. In fact, this was one of the biggest shocks to me as a new mom. Who knew that setting up the perfect nursery with a comfortable crib, would not be enough to ensure that my baby would fall asleep when

On February 15th to be exact Saia’s dad was ran over by a car while he was on vacation in New Orleans (NO). Since the horrific accident, I had to step up and play the role of both parents. In the beginning, it was rough because the love of my life was in the hospital in New Orleans for at least a month because his injuries were so severe. This required me to take care of Saia during the week and travel to the NO on the weekends. Once we

I really didn’t believe the hype when people told me that your child becomes a new person when they turn two. Welp, they were right because my sweet innocent baby is sweet but can be a bit sour at times! In the African American community when it comes to discipline our elders did not play. But now times surely have changed and a lot of parents I know have switched their approach when it comes to disciplining their child-including myself recently. I was inspired to write this post because one

I’ll admit it, potty training my daughter hasn’t been an easy process. Some days are better than others but I cringe when other moms talk about their child using the pot pot because I’m honestly over the process. So I’ve decided to take a step back and really create a plan that should make this process easier for the both of us. If you are a feeling the potty training woes like me, just know that you are not alone and we can do this together! I just got straight

“Mindfull” Considerations for “Mompreneurs” Hello, Modish Mommies! I am so excited to be able to have your attention. First, let me take the opportunity to introduce myself and tell you a bit about my journey. I am a mental health therapist with ten years of experience working in the field. I am a graduate of Boston College in Massachusetts which is also my home state.  Boston College is where I earned both my Bachelor and Master degrees. I am a social worker by profession and in this role, I am

Did your style change after becoming a mom? If your answer is yes then this interview is for you! After becoming a mom many women become best friends with loose shirts, leggings, and messy buns! Because the last thing some moms can think about is what they should wear. However, I find it important to never loose your peace of mind and most importantly your sense of fashion just because you are a mom! Although it might be easy to some of us, a lot of moms face this challenge!

People now have a strong desire to ditch traditional 9-5 jobs. Instead of letting your passion go to waste, make your passion your focus. It’s time to come to the realization that life is too short to work hard for another person’s dream and pockets! Many people think that starting up a business is unrealistic or a burden to their pockets but in all actuality, there are some affordable start-up businesses that might interest you. Recently, Entrepreneur featured an article that lists 75 businesses that you can start for free or

Unfortunately, many of our seasoned loved ones didn’t have the opportunity to live their true destiny because society wouldn’t let women be great during their prime time. Due to cultural norms, women back in the day were confined to gender roles which meant they had to take care of their family and home while the man of the house worked. I’ll never forget when I asked my grandmother how old she was when she got married and she said 16. My first thought was who the hell is thinking about getting married
