I am super excited to be bringing Natalie Lue back to the podcast. Natalie is an author, speaker, teacher, and podcaster at Baggage Reclaim Sessions, where she helps people get address all the things – lack of self-worth, habits, relationships – that are standing in their way of living the life that they want.
Listen to my previous episode with Natalie on boundaries, emotions, and the dark side of people pleasing. (This episode was such an aha moment for me!)
This episode was recorded the first week of May, so you’ll hear us talk about the COVID-19 lockdown (and what it has to teach us!), what to do when people are continuously letting you down, what it means to sit in our discomfort, the importance of self-awareness and slowing down before we reach burnout, what our relationships can teach us about ourselves, and how to even recognize what we actually want and need.
Nat, you are a gift! Thank you for coming back on the show!
“Burnout is not just a cause of work, burnout can occur in any area of our life.”
“We have to learn to read our surroundings and not just live in the past.”
“We have to recognize that each of us have our own personal bandwidth that encompasses our emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health.”
“The more things that we say YES to that really we don’t need to is the less bandwidth we have.”
“If we are always being all things to all people, we lose that self-connection.”
“Stop saying YES to things that make you feel like shit.”
