Denise Allman will be the first one to admit that there are certainly many ups and downs that come with motherhood, but she doesn't stop there. Denise chooses to see the beauty beyond her challenging moments. “You can either get washed around by the waves of motherhood, or you can ride it.” As a proud mom of 5 young kids, Denise certainly knows a thing or two about parenting, discipline and leading your children to success through example. In this episode of Meathead Hippie, Denise stresses the importance of getting your kids outside and moving, how to not feel stuck in a day-to-day routine, and learning how to commit to a larger purpose in life! Denise also provides helpful tips on sitting in the stillness during the noisiest times of your day and shares her secrets in how to let problems go. Finally, Denise leaves us with one compelling truth in her experience as a mom and that is, to live a full life with your kids by allowing them to feel excellence. “The best feeling is when your kid feels entirely capable and competent.”
