Jobs, travel, home management, babies, complicated relationships…the stress of these things can have a major impact on our physical selves. How do we manage the mental and physical load of modern life? In Episode 180, Christine welcomes back Edit Your Life’s most requested guest: therapist Jonathan Baxter. In response to a listener letter, Christine and Jonathan talk about the physical manifestation of stress, gender roles, the “having it all” myth, how to let go of how things “should” be done, doing vs. owning tasks, and family systems.
