On this episode Bree chats to Dr Robyn Miller who is an Australian medical doctor working in Northern Australia. Upon returning to work after maternity leave, Robyn, like many women, experienced the struggles of the “mental load”. When she couldn’t find any strategies to effectively “off-load” half of this invisible labour to her partner, Robyn drew upon her own skills and experience in neuroscience and organizational management to develop her own, unique strategy. In 2019, she founded The Mental Load Project to help other women to recognize and rebalance the mental load in their relationships.
Now, you may not have heard of The Mental Load – but you are definitely carrying it and today we want to explore how we can unload for a happier and healthier you. Our guest Dr Robyn Miller will help us understand what it is and how we can lessen the burden, by sharing it more equally in our relationships and families.
