Dear Portia,

Love the show, I listen to you everyday while I get my kids ready in the morning. I feel so overwhelmed sometimes with everything I have on my plate as a single mom with 3 kids. I work full time and I would like to go back to school to get my master’s degree. I know you recently said you changed careers and I was wondering what your typical day looks like between your job, family, the podcast, and having time to yourself. How do you do it all? How are you not going crazy? Hope to hear from you soon.

 

Hi Portia. What tips do you have for planning meals so that I’m not coming home everyday to make dinner.

 

Hi Portia! What do you do to take time for yourself? I ask because I’ve listened to a few of your shows and a lot of the guests talk about taking time for yourself, but I’m not having fun when I try to do that because I’m thinking about the million things I have to do when I get home. Dishes, cleaning the house, groceries, just a bunch of chores. My husband helps me when I ask him but I feel as if I shouldn’t have to ask. Seriously in need of some relief.
