Alexandra Hughes is mother to 3 children, wife to an ever traveling husband, writer, business owner, mindfulness teacher and internationally renown Life Coach.
After having experienced nervous breakdowns and identity crisis after identity crisis as both a stay at home mother and a working mother, she finally found her true calling supporting mothers to manage stress and overwhelm.
Today she lives her passion, helping mothers to navigate the stressy messy motherhood journeys mindfully and to find calm in the chaos of their busy lives.
She has worked with hundreds of mothers from around the world, helping them to find balance, joy and self-empowerment. She hosts a free Clear Mind | Present Mama Challenge for busy mothers suffering from overwhelm, offers on-line Calm Mom Coaching Circles to mothers who lose it just a little too often for comfort, and she works one-on-one with a small group of women through her Mama in JOY Mentorship Program.
Prior to becoming a coach, Alexandra dedicated 18 years of her professional career to social change as an international development researcher and practitioner.
She’s lived and worked in Africa, Europe, South and North America, and speaks English, French, Portuguese and Spanish.
Alexandra loves her coaching projects second only to her mischievous and vivacious children and her husband who now (after three international moves!!) live, love and laugh together in Washington D.C.
She is with me today to talk about stress, how it manifests in mothers’ lives and ways we can manage it with ease (and without creating another ‘to do’ on our list).
