Learn About IOME Self Care and Wellness !
As a licensed professional counselor, it became alarmingly clear to me that women do not get enough self-care in their day-to-day lives. The majority of women are dealing with things like anxiety, depression, guilt, past trauma, low-self esteem, feelings of stress, excessive fear, poor body image, and limiting self-beliefs. Just to name a few. The worst part of it is, women think it is completely "normal" to feel this way. That somehow, they are naturally supposed to live like this and there is nothing they can do about it.
My “I Owe Me Moment”
Personally, I thought it was "normal" to feel this way until I hit a breaking point. For me, my breaking point was when I realized I was living life on autopilot; just showing up, clocking in and out, not fully present and full of negative emotions. The sadness, anger, shame, guilt, and frustration was taking its toll. But, though my emotional state was unstable I thought this was how it had to be and half-present living was all I had to offer. Of course, until I realized how my negative emotions were impacting my husband and daughter. That was my breaking point. I was not going to raise a daughter to think that it's okay to simply survive life instead of thrive in life!
My name is Becky Lauridsen and I owe me! I am a wife, mother, career woman, and the proud founder and lead supporter of IOME. I see a therapist on a regular basis. I take naps, shower (almost daily), wash my face every night, wear makeup, go to church, cuss a little, take bubble baths, go on long walks, and binge watch Netflix when I need to “check out”. I even have sex with my husband regularly (and I like it)!
You do not have to simply survive life! You can have your cake and eat it too; you can be the best mother and career women. You can also be the best wife and mother. You deserve the most, and your family deserves the most.

IOME has changed my life and I’m so thankful Becky puts her heart and soul into it. Along with Becky’s help, I have grown as a person and learned so much about myself.
