Season 4, Episode 6
It's a bit of a joke with my family, call Rachel if you need to get something done. Like “The Wolf” in Pulp Fiction, cool, calm, delegating tasks and checking things off the list. Perhaps it's my Virgo nature, but I prefer things to have some order, for objects to have ‘homes’ and to optimize each moment to its fullest. Sustainable? Absolutely not. Especially when things just get too much.
Welcome to season 4, episode 6 of the #mumboss podcast a show dedicated to enhancing your super mama powers. I’m your host Rachel Maskell and today’s guest is Xavia Omega of The Messiful Mama.
Xavia is a mother of four and is on a mission to help mamas embrace the mess and to put themselves on the daily list of needs. Because the journey isn't always easy, she's written a 30 day guide in how to go from mess to messiful. I love that.
In the interview we speak about how embracing the physical mess is a way to embrace the non-tangible messes we find ourselves in. Emotional challenges, family relations, these are all things that can tie us up in knots worse than the clutter we're surrounded by.
Time is something we speak a lot about in this interview too. Some days other people's timing just isn't going to work and we got to go with the flow.
Expect to learn what it means to embrace the mess, the benefits of being present, and how to stop fighting time.
What we cover:
- Why you should stop fighting the mess
- When being late is ok
- A typical morning routine with four kids
- Staying sane amongst chaos

Stay tuned next week for episode 7 of Season 4. We’ll be talking about germs and how they influence our mental and physical health with Dr Maya Shetreat-Klein.
