Kelley shares her story of trauma, alcohol dependence and recovery as well as some of her best strategies as a therapist for helping women reduce overwhelm and get more present in their lives. Wendy and Kelley discuss why anxiety is on the rise, and the growing epidemic of “busyness” for women. They provide practical, accessible ideas for creating moments of mindfulness in your day including a simple coffee and shower ritual. They also explore the power of consciously choosing to care less and how this can transform overwhelmed and exhausted women’s lives.
