How are you? Sometimes it’s hard to check in with ourselves in the busy-ness of daily life, especially in these pandemic days when our self-care options are limited. High stress, depression, and anxiety tend to feel like personal failure. In today’s show, I want to offer you perspective and encouragement.

Show Highlights:

  • How to interpret your feelings during moments of stress
  • How to approach the new considerations brought on by the pandemic: masks, social distancing, virtual connections, etc.
  • Why life is hard in many ways right now for most people
  • Tips on how you can feel better:
  • Remember that you are resilient
  • Getting help is NOT failure
  • Honor your exhaustion by taking a break and setting boundaries
  • Check in with your sleep, eating/hydration, hormones, and stress

    Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
