Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Sep 22, 2020

This week’s show is all about my come to Jesus moment with the planet. Because when you get really scared by climate change as I was last week… well, you start to think.

I begin with an essay from my blog, The Magic and the Challenge of Letting Go. In it, I share some vulnerable thoughts about times in my life when letting go was particularly tough. And what I learned about the entire letting go process. If you tend to hang on, this one’s for you.

My main essay is my own creation this week—all about a connection I’ve discovered between excellent self-care and being good stewards of the planet. As it turns out, the two truly intersect beautifully. There is a certain pace that living green requires, and it turns out to be the very same pace that is part of living in balance. Of being mindful as you move through your day, consuming consciously, making good decisions, and not taking this poor old Earth for granted any longer.

I share ideas about

  • My come to Jesus moment
  • Why we avoid these ideas of environmentalism
  • How to keep a sustainable kitchen
  • What walking in nature can do for our nerves
  • The deep self-care of no longer driving

It’s all about a fundamental return to values… the very same ones I write about in my book, The Extremely Busy Woman’s Guide to Self-Care.

May this resonate with you, friend.

Wishing you well, wherever you are…
