Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Oct 4, 2022

My guest in this show, Dr. Priyanka Wali is both a doctor AND a stand up comic—and she shares what she learned about self-care with us. We cover everything from the joys of growling to her clinical trials of psychedelic drugs for depression.


I begin this show with the self-care laundry list you’ve been waiting for—Self-Care Gifts and Treats for Extremely Busy Women… Because who doesn’t want some beautiful soap or an awesome tea mug sometimes? Got some real road-tested favorites in here for you. Enjoy! (All links on the blog page below.)


Priyanka Wali is a forcefield when it comes to interesting podcast guests. This show is particularly fun, and I urge you to take a listen! She shares how she manages both a busy medical practice and a career as stand up comic (I GUARANTEE you have not heard some of these tips before!) And she makes perfect sense.


Among other things I learned:


  • How she schedules in time for self-care
  • Managing emotional overflow with … growling!
  • How she uses yoga in a busy day
  • Why Highly Sensitive People need to ground
  • Her adventures managing a study in psychedelic drugs for treating depression
  • How own experience taking Ayahuasca



… And so much more!


Make this bring a smile to your face today!
