Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Feb 16, 2021

How’s 2021 shaping up for you? Today’s show begins with some great questions you can ask yourself to help create a better year. It’s not too late—and of course, it’s NEVER too late to plain old evolve. May you find them helpful. Just pull out a journal and have at it. You’ll learn something about you, I promise.

Here they are:

  1. What have you been hanging on to that you need to let go of?
  2. Who or what has been dragging you down or weighing heavy on your mind?
  3. Who needs your apology?
  4. What have you been tolerating?
  5. Where could you be more accepting?
  6. Where have you gotten stuck in the last year?
  7. What have you been craving or longing for?
  8. What have you been hard on yourself about?
  9. Do you need to forgive yourself?
  10. What would make your life wonderful?
  11. What’s missing in your life—even if you don’t know how to manifest it yet?
  12. What inspires you, excites you, lights you up?
  13. Who or what has added immeasurably to your life?
  14. Whom do you need to thank and appreciate?
  15. What’s been unexpectedly fun?
  16. Who would you like to be in the coming year?
  17. Where could you make some clear requests?
  18. What will you do just for you?

My guest in this show is the incredible Jean Chatzky, one of the foremost experts out there on women and money. I learned so much—and was so inspired by our chat. Among other things, we discussed

  • What is the most important thing to know about how women handle money?
  • The five key things you can do for true, lasting financial self care
  • The key to earning more and what it requires
  • The link between our money and our mental health
  • Keys to creating effective savings
  • How to use technology to set up ongoing savings you don’t have to think about
  • What to do if you’ve already spent your emergency savings—and how to build it back up again

What a whirlwind of great info this conversation was! You’re gonna want to take notes. I did! See Jean’s excellent links below, as well.

Talk soon, my friend. I’m so glad you’re here!
