Angela Lockwood is my final guest on this iteration of the podcast, and I couldn't be happier to have her share her wisdom with the amazing Work Mama Life listeners. Angela is an OT, speaker and author of the best selling book Switch Off. She now works with parents, children and schools to amplify the experience of children and teachers in an inclusive classroom environment. But today she is speaking with us about focus, distraction, tech use... and as working mums we are navigating a new harsh reality that makes it really tricky to determine what is the best outcome through all of these scenarios. This podcast has been a light of wisdom for working mum's, and the discussion we have today on distraction, distracatability and our love for our sense of self is next level. I just love this chat, and am so thankful we snuck this in before my well needed white space break.
