Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Apr 26, 2022

DESCRIPTION: Suzanne knocks around ideas about why we resist self-care and what we can do about it. Also, her intro covers ideas about the value of everyday lessons, some learned the hard way

Why is it life doesn’t always cooperate with us? That’s what I’m starting with in this show, by sharing an essay I wrote in 2018 called ‘How to Find the Lessons Hidden in Everyday Dilemmas

.’ For a lot of us, this has been one hell of a two years—and so perhaps now IS a good time to look for where we may be stuck.

The main part of this show is dedicated to everyone who MEANS to get back to self-care but can’t quite make it happen. I’ve got you, friend. Because even the best of intentions can’t always help us get back to good self-care.

If you have a lifelong pattern of resisting self-care, I’ll share

  • Ideas about why we do this
  • How to break the pattern
  • Where to look for a reset
  • New mini-habit behaviors that can be … habit-forming!

Hope this helps YOU get back to glowing self-care!

My best as ever,
