SLOTH: The PROCRASTINATION Episode

SLOTH: The PROCRASTINATION Episode

This one hit close to home for Dana and Amy! Join us on the couch as we learn what's really going on when you put off that one thing—or many things!
Dana helps us understand why procrastination is a perfectly normal and natural self-protective mechanism—and then, how to move past it to get on with our lives. 

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.

You CAN HAVE IT ALL! (Yeah, Right.)

This episode was inspired by Michelle Obama speaking truth to “Lean In.” We’re not going to show you how to stop juggling too many balls in the air. We just want to help you identify the right balls for YOU. Find out when judging other parents can actually be productive. (C’mon, you already know when it isn’t!)

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.
