Once you have kids, did you lose some part of yourself?  Have you given everything you can to their upbringing and at the end of the day feel spent?  How much time and attention is available for you in this busy world with kids, husband and work?  Empty nest can equal an empty mom with health and life issues, learn how to keep yourself going with healthy habits along the way.

My guest is Dr. Rick Hanson, a neuropsychologist and New York Times best-selling author who will be sharing about his book Mother Nurture.  The latest generation of mothers are having to juggle more than just raising great kids; they have work and schedules that are very over loaded.  While looking after a family that is more active than ever, a mother and her needs can get put on the back burner until a health crisis or life challenging event occur.  Learn how what simple steps you can take each day to avoid pitfalls later in life.
