Let’s talk self-care. Kristen Howerton, writer and psychotherapist, is joined by her longtime pal Roo Powell, self-professed workaholic and self-care luddite, as they tackle the tricky and often elusive aspects of caring for ourselves. Their weekly conversations explore questions like: Can self-care be for everyone? How do I get enough sleep? What aspects of my personality make self-care tricky? And what’s in this face mask? From the silly to the serious, Kristen and Roo are taking a vulnerable and often humorous look at body, mind and spirit . . . all while looking at the distractions and defenses that keep us from caring for ourselves like we should. Like that 6pm deadline butting up against 6:30pm soccer practice.

Loyal listener from the start!

I began listening when it was the original hosts. When one of the hosts left I was wondering how it would continue since they had such a great dynamic. I am happy to say that both the new host and added correspondents are fantastic! It’s informative, relatable, and comforting. I’ve gotten a ton of great tips and recommendations from products to mental health. I’ve never missed an episode!

Moms that we can relate to

Love you guys and the new show! Love the segments with BJ. However, Kristen. Please. You have to put some transitions in. We go from a beautiful meditation to talking about eye cream.

One of my faves

Kudos on the new format and the new co-host dynamic!! I love listening to Kristen and Roo. Their banter is fun, funny, and relatable, and their age difference gives refreshing different viewpoints. I look forward to it every week.
