This week, I sit down with Suzanne Falter, host of the Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women podcast, a show about the importance of self-care and building healthy self-care habits for women everywhere.
She’s also the author of several books and continues the legacy of her daughter Teal, who passed in 2012 ,through helping other women be who they were meant to be.
On Slowing Down and Going Within
Suzanne shares the importance of taking care of ourselves. She had never done that her whole life, and it was only when she lost her daughter that she made the time to truly focus on her and her wellness.
A Certain Level of Denial
As we enter the third year of the global pandemic that is Covid, Suzanne makes an important point about the toll it’s taken on us as human beings, beyond the obvious physical loss of life.
We need to keep the ability to daydreamto get insights to our recovery.
The Lights Are Shining
Suzanne’s show has a multitude of guests on a variety of topics, and she shares the example of one who talked about the rise in verbal abuse, and how we may not treat that the same as we do with physical abuse.
This then results in tragic circumstances as we see the fallout of silence and inaction. She hopes social justice movements like #MeToo will drive more conversations and awareness.
On the Need to Remove Cultural Conditioning
With Suzanne’s podcast and books geared towards empowering women to live the life they want and deserve, she talks about how cultural conditioning is stopping women from meeting that goal. Often they feel guilty for wanting more, and this line of thinking has been instilled almost from birth.
We like to do more than the job requires.
Being the Person Her Daughter Wanted Her to Be
As her daughter Teal lay in her hospital bed, Suzanne realized she knew she was going to die, and this realization made her determined to be the kind of person her daughter would have wanted her to be.
