Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Apr 14, 2020

I don’t know if you’re like me, but about now I’d really like to stop sheltering in place. Oh I’d just LOVE to sit down to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in Oakland or Berkeley. I’d love to freely wander the farmer’s market, or the rose garden up the street, now in full bloom.

But I can’t. And I won’t. Not until the time is right. Meanwhile, we have to cope. So that’s why this show is all about getting our much needed alone time. Did you know there’s even been research that proves how essential it is for re-grounding us?

And yet … if you’re trying to just get through every day. If you have small children or an elder to care for. If you’re about to or have just lost your job … or you’re just trying to work from home, it may seem impossible to take some time just for you.

Whatever the case may be, know that this episode will CHEER YOU ON, past the guilty feelings, the hesitancy and the thought that it’s impossible … towards a little soothing alone time of your own.Godspeed, my friend. Stay safe …
