Episode 81: Raising Health: Moms Raising Daughters
with Dr. Jennifer Conin
My guest in today’s podcast is Dr. Jennifer Cronin who is an author, speaker and medical expert in Lifestyle Medicine. She focuses on empowering Moms to live an extraordinary life by putting their health (physical, emotional, spiritual, financial and sexual) as a number one priority and leading by example in order to raise strong, ambitious and independent daughters.
This is a topic that I strongly relate to…not only as a Mom myself, but because I feel it is so important that we each learn how to champion ourselves and our own needs in order to truly be our best self’s to others. In today’s episode we talk about the challenges that come as we try to balance the role of a parent with the many other roles we fulfill in life, such as a business owner. Dr. Cronin shares her insight into how we can teach our children to put themselves first by watching our example.
“Your physical health is only one component of your overall health. As women and mothers, we need to focus on the other areas of our wellness wheelhouse, including emotional, spiritual, financial and sexual health” – Dr. Jennifer Cronin
