Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Feb 8, 2022

(Dedicated to my nephew Jon and my son Luke)

Have you ever wondered why men find self-care so hard to access? And have you ever wished your own man had better self-care routines of his own? That’s the theme of this week’s interview with the awesome Ted Phaeton. But first I couldn’t resist sharing a popular blog I did back in 2012 that is written especially for my male readers about why women cry for no reason.

This show features the wonderful host of a really inspiring podcast I discovered, No Rain…No Rainbows. Ted Phaeton is not only a highly successful, Emmy award-winning Fox meteorologist, he leads empowerment groups for men. And I love that! Why limit your gifts—or your success to just one channel?

I asked Ted every question I could think of when it pertains to men and their self-care, and among other things I learned:

  • How he found his way into empowerment work
  • Why men get defensive about self-care
  • What self-care has to do with our potential
  • What he learned about social acceptance from high school football
  • Ted’s ulcerative colitis parable
  • How his own self-care discovery got him on TV

He even concludes this wonderful conversation with a shout out to all the men listening—and an invitation to think about something important.

I hope you enjoy our chat as much as I do.
