You know what the daily juggle is like. You’re prepping for an important meeting, and your child enters the room with the ominous statement, I’m hungry. Never mind the fact that they had a snack an hour ago. Or that your meeting is in thirty minutes.
Alison Mitzner Aims To Show Us a Better Way to Parent. Parenting can feel overwhelming and exhausting. Even the most dedicated among us may sacrifice our own well-being on behalf of our kids — but that’s the wrong thing to do.
Parenting can feel overwhelming and exhausting. Even the most dedicated among us may sacrifice our own well-being on behalf of our kids — but that’s the wrong thing to do. There is a better way. Parenting doesn’t have to be a blur of sleep deprivation, stress, weight gain, and emotional chaos.
Dr. Alison Mitzner somehow does it all! Like most parents, there are times when she probably wonders how she’s able to juggle so much while keeping her sanity. The multitalented New York City pediatrician and journalist also has many years of experience as a mother and fitness fanatic under her belt, and has built a strong platform to share her knowledge.
Rachel Montañez from Forbes asked: "What inspired your pivot from practicing as a pediatrician to the role you're in today?" There are so many unwritten career rules. As a career practitioner, I’ve seen tons of "rules" get broken, and it always makes me want to delve into the theoretical side of why they exist in the first place.
Alison Mitzner, MD '97
After five years as a pediatrician in private practice in New York City, Alison Mitzner, MD '97, was second-guessing her career choice. She loved kids. And she loved the science of medicine. But she found the day-to-day of her clinical practice simultaneously too stressful and too repetitive.
For parents, busy isn’t just a feeling, it’s a way of life. Sometimes we wonder what it was like when we weren’t this busy, and weep for all the sleep we didn’t take advantage of. Wellness dominates our social media feeds, but it’s hard to find the time to incorporate it all when we’re always needed and on the go.
Parenting can feel overwhelming and exhausting. Even the most dedicated among us may sacrifice their own wellbeing on behalf of our kids and that’s not the wrong thing to do but there is a better way. You’ll be a better parent when you first take care of yourself, and by learning how to balance caring for yourself and your kids, you’ll be a more confident, calmer mom or dad.
This doctor is a mother to a 7 year old daughter and 5 year old son. Like many mamas in our community, Alison is an entrepreneur, incredibly motivated, and an expert multi-tasker! When asked "Describe your brand?", She replied with "Fitness for the whole family. Fit not only physically on the outside but on the inside mentally and emotionally as well."
