Biz and Theresa pick up where we left off on last week’s show and explore the sensation of “playing self” instead of being a self. Is the book on my nightstand going to be read or is it a prop to create the illusion of self care? What about that gym membership? Does it really count as self care if we can never go? We put things in calendars, we tell our partners and family it is important and everyone agrees. Then our self care is the first thing to go when something comes up. Why is this so incredibly hard? Plus Biz finds the pen is mightier than the sword and Theresa cuts it back.
Check out Theresa’s new book! It Feels Good To Be Yourself is available now wherever books are sold.
