How to Work Out at Home During Coronavirus Pandemic from Local Fitness Expert!

Welcome to our new normal. I’m a mom of two young boys in elementary school in Westport, CT, and due to a big outbreak of coronavirus here, we’re pretty much on lockdown. Schools and gyms are closed and restaurants are open for pick up/take out only. So, in addition to being a working mom, I’m now a homeschooler of two kids, a speech and occupational therapist, and a music, art, and Spanish teacher. One thing that’s keeping me sane (at least a little?!) during this unprecedented time is MOVEMENT. I am super grateful that it’s almost spring, and the weather is allowing us to get outdoors and PLAY. Even while social distancing, there are so many ways to keep moving!

The Local Moms Network 2019 Holiday Gift Guide!

Welcome to The Local Moms Network 2019 Holiday Gift Guide! Before kids, we had all our holiday shopping done by (or shortly after) Thanksgiving. Post-kids? We sometimes find ourselves relying on anything available with overnight shipping, or online gift cards (when we’re truly out of ideas). We hope this shortlist provides you with both some solid inspiration and any needed motivation to check all of the dads, moms, kids and everyone in between off your list early, and give unique gifts they’ll love and use over and over.

Using CBD to manage Anxiety: One Mom's Story

With so many women—particularly moms—dealing with anxiety, postpartum and silently drowning in life, we’re happy to partner with a brand looking to help.

Meet Robyn

Meet Robyn

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and we are incredibly fortunate that Robyn – Weston mom of two and recent breast cancer survivor – has shared her story with us. It is a story about being pro-active, brave, vulnerable, and strong, while inspiring hope. Just over one year ago, Robyn’s life changed forever when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and her journey to come out on the other side (filled with chemotherapy, hair loss, multiple surgeries and more), would not have been what It was without exercise, her friends and family, and her own unrelenting drive to be a survivor. Robyn’s story is raw…It is scary…It is real. But It is also a story about gratitude and one that should remind us women – and us moms – to trust our gut, to make ourselves a priority, and to never, ever give up.
