12 years ago when I was studying to be a coach my training was all online and via classes held by teleconference. Back then it seemed a crazy and strange idea that this was an effective way to teach/learn.
Now online learning has become much more normal and as a Mum online programs are a fantastic way for me learn. In recent years I have taken online courses to learn how to create an online course myself, lose weight, create Facebook Ads, get fit, cook healthier food for my family, and focus on my well-being.
Here are 5 reasons I think online programs work so well for Mums:
YOU DON’T HAVE TO LEAVE THE HOUSE
No need to get stressed trying to get out of the house on time to attend lessons. No need to even get out of your PJ’s! It doesn’t get any more convenient than that.
YOU CAN LEARN ANYTIME OF THE DAY
You can get up early and spend an hour learning before the kids wake up, or use the babies lunchtime nap to action the next activity, or perhaps you prefer to learn at night when the kids have gone to bed with a nice glass of red wine.
YOU GET GREAT SUPPORT
Online programs tend to come with fantastic group support, usually in closed Facebook groups. Not only can you ask for advice from the course creator but you also get great support and encouragement from other participants in the group. This support always helps me to achieve what I need to.
YOU CAN LEARN WITH YOUR KIDS IN TOW
You can learn while your baby sleeps or while your toddler is happily creating with playdough. You don’t have to leave your class because your baby cries and breastfeeding totally encouraged any time.
YOU CAN LEARN AT A PACE THAT SUITS YOUR LIFE
Most online programs (but not all) give you lifetime access to the content and support group. This means you don’t have to “keep up”. You can work through the modules at a pace that suits your life. If your kids get sick, or you take a holiday you can just pause your learning and start again as soon as you are ready.
Have you ever done an online course? What did you love about that style of learning?
My online program, 5 Minutes 4 Mum, is currently enroling and the program starts on September 19th.
This is a 6 week, self-paced program designed to help you feel less overwhelmed and start really making your needs & me-time a real part of every day life.
Each week you’ll receive access to inspiring + actionable content focusing on a different area of your life.
