Preserving our well being

Such a kind, happy, hopeful and useful podcast!!

Dr. Christine has a lovely way about her. I just found her a few weeks ago and am binging the podcast starting from the beginning. I love the interviews but was hoping to hear more from her own voice and instructions as well, and lo and behold, a new podcast episode came out and for some reason I decided to jump over to the newest episode and she said she’ll be speaking to us directly a bit more from now on. My wish came true :)
I’ve played episode 164, from about 6:08-7:45 about 10 times and will write it in my journal. That idea of preserving our well being/protecting our energy and momentum is exactly what I’m after. I don’t want to just do more, but do more while feeling good. I know we need to stretch ourselves to grow but along with that stretching, I want to have an overall sense of well being. She articulated this so beautifully.

WonderSquirrel ,

Simple, yet so powerful.

The podcast makes taking action so much easier. As a recovering perfectionist, I love having Dr. Christine in my ear reminding me to make it fun, make it easy, you can do this!

Celebrating myself moving through procrastination with Dr. Christine Li

After listening to only a few episodes, I have changed how I show up for myself! I’m getting to know a healthier, happier, real, self by moving my “stuck, why bother, life is so very hard, if only I was a dog….a person not liking being human,” to moving my body, starting and finishing tasks, exercising, showing up for me! Just Me alone! Wow! I’ve re-listened to episode 2 as you recommend and it’s like I fresh start each time. Identifying and relating my “stuck” self to procrastination has given the power back to me to choose to change. Change now, this minute. Every episode and interview is packed full of helpful tools, experiences, knowledge, and wisdom. Each week I can’t wait for the next episode! Keep being You!
