The antidote to feeling frazzled (and why I'm going quiet)

In this (the final episode in this season of Midlife Illuminated) I share something that every woman needs. Particularly in midlife, when we are overwhelmed by the needs of others.

It's the need to return to ourselves. In the classic book Women Who Run With The Wolves, this is described as "homing".

With thanks to Clarissa Pinkola Estes - author of Women Who Run With The Wolves - for enlightening me on the need for homing.

I hope this episode gives you the permission you need to do your own homing.

I'm now starting a quiet time of no podcasting and no social media posting. To find out how transformative this was last year, listen to episode 68 of this podcast ("I saw the light! Here's how.") You can find it here:

Lastly, I'd like to say a big thank you for tuning in - I'm so grateful for you choosing to join me here. I look forward to sharing more illuminations with you when I'm back for season 5 (make sure you've hit the subscribe button to hear the new season). Wishing you a wonderful summer! Suzy x
