Let's talk self-care. Sarah James, a lifestyle blogger and self-help aficionado, is joined by bestie Kristen Howerton, a writer and psychotherapist, as they tackle the tricky and often elusive aspects of caring for ourselves. Their weekly conversations explore questions like: Why don’t I eat the way I should? How do I get enough sleep? What aspects of my personality make self-care tricky? And what’s the best way to deal with pubic hair? From the silly to the serious, Kristen and Sarah are taking a vulnerable and often humorous look at body, mind and spirit . . . and maybe a touch of the random, all while looking at the distractions and defenses that keep us from caring for ourselves like we should.

Lots of fun!

I enjoyed this show so much I’ve been listening all the way back through the archives, and will be really sad when I’m done! The hosts have great chemistry, good voices (sooooo important, I’ve stopped listening to great content half way through because I can’t stand the voices!) and the conversations are really fun and informative. My only two gripes: 1) STOP CALLING IT AN ALEXA! An Alexa is a person. An ECHO is the stupid Amazon device. Actual humans are named Alexa and it’s really annoying when people refer to the device as an Alexa. (I get that this is mostly Amazon’s fault but we can help fix it by calling the devices by the right name). 2) I wish they were better at explaining when the products they name-check or rave about are sponsored in some way and when they are not. Even a simple “nothing is sponsored unless we say it is” at the top of the show would help give more weight to the recommendations (which I have to say are really good so far, but I don’t like that I can’t tell who paid for the rec and who didn’t). Keep up the great work!

The Girlfriends I’ve never met!

Words cannot describe how much I look forward to this podcast every time! Of being the same age demographic as Kristen & Sarah, I feel that they both are going through the same struggles or issues I may be experiencing may it be health or kid related. I love hearing about their lives and what’s going on with whatever self care struggles they may be dealing with at the moment. Also they bring enough humor and honesty into each topic discussed without it feeling too preachy or over the top. Very researched and thoughtful, each episode shows the work put into it and I love these girls as my own family!

boring

really wanted to love this podcast!! but It just takes them forever to get to the point and why do they always have to bring the same topics about skin at the beginning ?!
