Are you the one who always detours to pick something up from the store, buys gifts for birthdays and reminds your partner to take out the trash?
Do you sometimes feel like a walking checklist or to-do-list or sometimes both?
Well, then it’s more than likely that you’re carrying the mental load for your family.
All this reminding, noticing, organising, scheduling, communicating and remembering can leave you feeling overwhelmed, stressed and exhausted. The Mental Load Project was established in 2019 to help women and men recognise and rebalance all this invisible labour.
