GLUTTONY: Who ISN'T Weird About Food?

GLUTTONY: Who ISN'T Weird About Food?

Yes, we are GenX women, brought up with Jane Fonda's thigh gap and some funky ideas about good foods and bad. And food in general. And ourselves in general. In this episode, we share a LOT about where this got us. 

Dana has helpful strategies to help us move past some of our food baggage, but we also both dish on our hang-ups and habits that are so ingrained, we don't even notice them most of the time. 

ANGER: What to Do with All that Rage!

ANGER: What to Do with All that Rage!

As part of our series on the Seven Deadly Sins, we cover Anger (often referred to in sin lit as "Wrath"). This sin cut to the front of the line when Dana had an anger incident brought about in part by the hell arcade that is Dave & Buster's. We learn that Dana's anger flares when someone tangles with her kids; Amy's is activated when someone eats her food. Please don't judge Amy too harshly for her skewed priorities. 

Dana offers helpful insights about the positive value of anger and how to express it in a way that it doesn't overwhelm the recipient. We also explore the relationship between anger and depression that sometimes exists, which was something Amy learned this week! 

For our concluding section of recommendations, "No, You HAVE To!", Amy offers tips for something money can't buy, and Dana recommends something money CAN buy, because sometimes, you HAVE to.

S1:EP7 - THERAPY: Huh? And Why Should I Care?

In NYC, where we live, it’s not unusual for people to start stories at brunch, “My therapist said…,” but we realize not everyone is comfortable talking about or even asking about therapy.

Tune in to hear what therapy can and can’t do, when to seek help, what to look for, and how a therapist differs from a paid friend! Believe it or not, we’ll have a few laughs, too.
