Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Imagine your perfect day. What if that perfect day was every day? You're probably doing a lot―taking care of your family, killing it at your job, volunteering, organizing, scheduling, delegating. At the end of all of that, do you have any time or energy left to take care of the most important person: you? Self-care movement leader Suzanne Falter asks the questions your heart and soul long to hear. She takes you into a soothing, inspiring half hour of insi ...

If you’re like most of us, you want to have a great sex life … and it can be a little complicated. That’s why I invited a bona fide sex therapist, Vanessa Marin, on my show.

What could be better than waking up with copious energy? Feeling bright and fresh and ready to dig into the day … or knowing you’ve got energy to burn instead of succumbing to the usual 3PM meltdown.

This week’s theme is all about anger. Because let’s face it … sooner or later, we’re going to have to blow. I begin by reading Chapter 17 from my new book, The Extremely Busy Woman’s Guide to Self-Care.

In tough times, where do we go? To the nearest bottle of wine? To the consolation of a good friend? Or … do we try to sleep and dream our way through it? The last option might be a good one according to Dr. Joshua Black. He’s a Canadian researcher with a PhD in dreams about the deceased. And he provides a fascinating look at how these sleeping visi…
 
This show is for everyone who feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day. The fact is there are—just as there have always been. But we can’t always see it.

That would be Essential #5, Having Great Energy. Here are some ideas about what it really takes to be energized throughout your day. (Hint: Exercise definitely has som…
 
As we dive into a new year, I’ve been thinking of compassion. I’ve become a lot more compassionate since my daughter Teal’s death 2012. And that’s not a mistake. Her nickname was Kwan Yin, for the goddess of Compassion. Because, well, that’s how she was. And so I’m edging that way myself. In that spirit, I begin this show by reading an essay from m…
 
As we wind up the year, I’m focused in this show on helping you create a much better structure for self-care in the coming year. I begin with an essay from my blog, Not Enough Time or Money?

It’s part workbook, part guide, part resource listing that has everyt…
 
Have you ever noticed how we often fight the very self-care that’s here to help us? That’s what happens to all of those lost New Year’s resolutions. (‘Oh yeah … wasn’t I going to go on a diet and lose twenty pounds?’) I begin this show by reading Chapter Nine of my new book, The Extremely Busy Woman’s Guide to Self-Care. It’s all about this very ph…
 
You know when you have strong boundaries because people don’t take advantage of you. You know how and when to say no – and you know it’s a balancing act. But for some of us … boundary setting is not so easy. I lay out the basics here, and begin with a little context setting. I read a very popular essay I wrote a while back called ‘Are You a Drama J…
 
The beginning of the holidays will soon be here. With it the onslaught of a LOT of whipped cream, chocolate, turkey, stuffing, eggnog, etc etc etc.. In other words, calories galore! So how are we self-aware, self-careish gals going to cope? I think I have an idea. Let’s get on top of the illusions around dieting, and using food to resolve our other…
 
Whether you’re talking about love or work, there is always a constant – relationships. Sometimes we can’t live with ’em, AND we really can’t live without ’em. Really, it all boils down to us, for we are the one big constant in all of this relating … right? I begin with a humbling tale of my own self-discovery on a Sunday at Berkeley Bowl, one of th…
 
Sometimes it’s hard to imagine how you can peel yourself up off the couch at the end of the day, and shift things in life to allow for more self-care. But self-care is where the mojo is – and you must know that or you wouldn’t be here. This is where our self-esteem, creativity and personal power all come from. I begin this show by talking about dev…
 
Tired of being overwhelmed? Yeah, me too … but now that I’m on Team Teal, and I’m learning all about self-care, I’ve discovered that tools like hypnosis can be super useful, as well as just getting some context for your suffering. At the very least, it’s a motivator, right? That’s why I begin this episode with my essay, “The Temporary Nature of Suf…

It charts my progress from being a wife of 25 years to coming out as a lesbian and trekking west to begin to meet my own needs. This is for you if you’ve been feeling stuck in your life, beholden to others first, or you wonder about the question ‘Do I still have to clean up b…
 
If you’re like a lot of us, you’re hard on yourself. I know from a young age I was Little Susie Perfect who could do nothing wrong. Which not only made life exhausting and difficult, it prevented me from doing healthy things like ask for help and admit when I didn’t know something. I mistakenly believed I had to be all things to all people – which …

In America, we are addicted to stress as a nation and as individuals. It provides us with an identity and a holy reason for being, one that often replaces simpler, subtler experiences like being, feeling, and noticing. If we are stressed then we are fighting ‘the good fight.’ In fact, we are only fighting ourselves. I write this as I emerge from a …
 
I begin this episode with some ideas for getting back to equanimity, in an essay I wrote recently called ‘How to Talk Yourself Out of a Funk.’ Next time you’re feeling downright despair, have a listen – or even now, to ward off your next blue mood.

I begin today’s show by reading an essay I wrote called “My Declaration of Independence”. It fits neatly in with the theme of this show – all around narcissistic abuse, and how to practice real and lasting self-care around it. I don’t know about you, but I’ve encountered a LOT of narcissists in my life. So I was particularly interested to chat with…
 
I start this episode by reading my essay, ‘What Marie Kondo Taught Me About Life’ … it’s an exploration of what I learned as I downsized, tossed and let go of reams of stuff.

Sometimes here at the Self-Care Soother, we just need to kick back and enjoy ourselves. Which is, of course, a critical part of self-care as well.

I share a little about my own journey, and where thi…
 
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the convergence of self-care and #metoo feminism. It seems like self-care is needed more than ever in our fragile, conflicted world.
