Lately, I’ve been on a media fast. Just not letting myself cycle down into the very bad news that surrounds us these days. And as I do, a remarkable thing happens.
I sleep better. My mind is clearer. I can get my work done. And I’m happier. So it occurred to me that this show should be about the benefits of doing this for all of us.
I begin with an essay I published in 2018 in Tiny Buddha called How Going Offline for Ten Days Healed My Anxiety. You can read it in the link below, if you’d like.
Also, I’m inviting anyone who listens to this show to get on the phone with me for just a few moments. (Conversation is free, I’m not selling anything, there is no agenda) just so I can learn what your biggest self-care needs are. This is my way of connecting with you so I can better serve you.

I’ve also chosen to replay a very popular segment I ran a while ago, The Strangely Addictive Nature of Stress. It really expands on what I was talking about in my introduction.
If you’ve been caught up in the pandemic swirl, and anxiety is getting the better of you … here’s a simple, easy solution.
May all of this serve you well!
What does it take to truly let go of all the worries, fears and doubts that keep you up at night? It requires surrendering, completely. Letting go of all the negative talk in our heads, and the heaviness in our hearts.
Let Suzanne’s book, The Joy of Letting Go, take you through any crisis. Wise, warm and funny.
