The last few weeks in our country have been remarkably painful. Hurricanes, floods, fires, shootings, untimely deaths, warmongering, political chaos…it’s enough to make us want to hide in the closet and never come out. And yet, there’s still work to do, meals to cook, and life to live. How do you keep functioning — even experiencing joy — when things are so stressful?
In Episode 97 of Edit Your Life, Asha and Christine give listeners the podcast version of a hug. They share what’s going on in their lives, plus what they’re doing to stay productive in today’s stressful climate.
