Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Jun 2, 2020

Meredith Atwood used to be a triathlete. And a lawyer. And a generally kick-ass sort of person. Everything was going great … until it wasn’t. Meredith found her way back to herself through a crisis of sorts. Her husband confronted her about what had become out of control drinking … She had to really tell the truth about it, and so her life finally fell in line.

Meredith calls our bad choices ‘nonsense’, and shares an inspiring message of possibility for anyone who is tired of the status quo. Because, yes, she did master hers.

In speaking to Meredith, I learned:

  • What ‘nonsense’ really means … and why it matters
  • The cost of people pleasing, gossip and more bad habits
  • How to get clarity on what your own ‘nonsense’ is
  • Why we make bad choices in the first place
  • The biggest challenges around getting rid of your own nonsense
  • Her thoughts on failure
  • What her biggest takeaways are

It’s an episode I think you’ll find really valuable. I know I did.
