Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women


May 12, 2020

About now a whole lot of us are just plain done with sheltering in place … do you know what I mean? We’re on week 8 here in California, and I am SERIOUSLY ready to go to the beach. However, all is not lost yet. Things are slowly beginning to creep back towards normal in the global pandemic.

That’s why I open this show with an essay I wrote called Why Moms Are Too Busy for Self-Care (and What to Do About It). Here you’ll find hands on, concrete ideas that will move you towards greater self-care no matter how many plates you currently have spinning in the air.

Meanwhile, how’s your relationship? And how’s your heart?

Challenges such as Tik Tok's "Text Your Ex Challenge" are increasing in popularity by the day. Bad choice for those who are alone. And those who are married have challenges of their own, beginning with driving each other just plain crazy sometimes.

So, why are people making such poor dating decisions? How have the "stay-at-home" orders changed the way folks view relationships? These are questions I asked LA psychotherapist Jaime Bronstein recently. Her answers were helpful. Here’s what I learned:

  • The best thing you can do as a couple
  • Mistakes couples are making right now
  • How can we date safely during the pandemic?
  • Non-app ways to meet someone
  • Exes who text … should you?
  • What about those who ghost you? What does it all mean?

There’s lots here to chew on … stay safe my friends!
