Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Jan 17, 2023

Suzanne talks with anxiety expert and podcast host Kelli Walker about the vagus nerve and various easy exercises to calm anxiety and get grounded again.


This show begins with a piece of writing I did called ‘You Matter More Than You Think’. It’s a vulnerable, tender piece of writing from the time just after Teal’s death, when I could suddenly see the world and our interconnectedness so very clearly. In it, I discuss a concept Teal shared called The Unified Field of Love.


My guest, Nurse Health and Wellness Coach Kelli Walker, has some excellent hacks for managing anxiety and getting grounded again. Really there’s is no substitute for slowing down, as Kelli reaffirms. And she shares some great ideas on how to get there.


We discussed:

  • Why standard medical treatment for anxiety can be lacking
  • The connection between self-care and anxiety
  • What the vagus nerve is and how to tone it… and why it matters
  • A fun way to ‘channel your inner hippie’ to relax
  • Neuroplasticity ideas for anxiety and why it works
  • Tips on aromatherapy


I hope you enjoy this powerful and interesting show!


Best to you,
