    #66: Are You About to Burnout With Kelley Anne Bonner

    #66: Are You About to Burnout With Kelley Anne Bonner

    Join me in an honest, funny and raw conversation with licensed therapist, Kelley Anne Bonner, as we talk about burnout. Kelley shares what burnout is and how to recognize it.
    We talk about why so many women are close to or already experiencing burnout, including the ways in which we try to address it by being more productive and just trying harder (hint: those don’t work!).
    In our conversation, Kelley shares her 3-step framework to help you get in alignment so that you can address your own burnout, or prevent it.
    As two black women, we also discuss how COVID-19 and the racial climate in America are contributing to the collective exhaustion and risk of mental health challenges.
    This is an important and wonderful conversation that you should take time to listen to and share with someone who needs to hear it.

    #65: Black Love in A Racist World

    #65: Black Love in A Racist World

    The second episode in my series on race focuses on the importance and beauty of Black Love and Black Marriage in a world that is racist.
    I share about how my husband and I have created a safe space in our home and marriage to be our full selves while unpacking the racial injustice that we experience.
    Listen to examples of how everyday experiences with race play out and how it we try think through and unpack them. While our marriage is unique to us, the experience is likely similar to what many Black couples face.

    #63: What Are You Going To Sacrifice to be Anti-Racist?

    A deeply personal episode where I share my thoughts, anger and grief over the America that I've known for 38 years that many are just waking up to.
    Listen to my thoughts on how important it is to understand systemic racism before you can start supporting and helping.
    I'll also share why supporting, standing in solidarity and even allyship are minimums if you really want to see change.

    #62: Simple Ways to Care For Yourself Every Day

    #61: Let's Talk About Mental Health

    May is Mental Health Awareness Month.   
    In the midst of COVID-19, the need for mental health support has only increased.  While it would be great for employers to cover mental health services and provide support, many do not.  So, for now, it’s up to you to advocate for yourself and get the support you need.   
    You are not alone.  There is help and support.  In this episode, we will talk about where to find it. 
    We need insurance and policy makers to address mental health like they do physical health.  Until this happens, we need to take it into account ourselves Your goal is to maintain your mental health and potentially learn new strategies and coping mechanisms.  Depending on your circumstance, you may be going after these things on your own.  Stress Management: https://www.helpguide.org/articles/stress/stress-management.htm Mindful.org: https://www.mindful.org/meditation/mindfulness-getting-started/ Apps Calm App: https://www.calm.com/ Headspace App: https://www.headspace.com/ Your organization's employee assistance program Therapy Betterhelp: https://www.betterhelp.com/ Talkspace: https://lp.talkspace.com/ Faithful Counseling: https://www.faithfulcounseling.com/ Regain (individual and couples therapy): https://www.regain.us/ Teen counseling: https://www.teencounseling.com/ See a provider in your health insurance network Online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: https://www.learntolive.com/ Prayer/Scripture:  Dwell App: https://dwellapp.io/ Greater Good Magazine: https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/ Mental health stigma is dangerous and must be addressed Learn about the resources and share them with your family, colleagues and team Ask HR to share resources Be transparent about how you’re doing   Share this episode Sign-up for a free 20 min flash coaching session https://www.wifemotherleader.com/coaching

A new addition to my regular listening rotation. Donielle is smart, bold, and offers perspective that is a great mix of both personal and global. Her thoughts expand my understanding and my thinking.

Love this podcast

Donielle is such a straight talker and - unlike so much of the advice that’s out there for women - she actually offers practical solutions. She’s so grounded and unapologetic....I want to be her when I grow up! (I think I’m older but still :) )
