Reviving and Rethinking Friendships

With the arrival of Spring, COVID vaccines, and school changes, many of us are trying to wrap our heads around a shifting social landscape. More people? More normality? Maybe even less Zoom?

In Episode 229 of Edit Your Life, Christine and I talk about how to revive and rethink friendships as we navigate safety concerns and potential social awkwardness.

How to Be an Adult

There’s way more to adulting than the typical five markers of adulthood (finish education, get a job, leave home, marry, have kids).

In Episode 228 of Edit Your Life, Christine talks to author Julie Lythcott-Haims. Her new book, Your Turn: How To Be An Adult, is about how to get beyond basic adulting to the power of wanting to be an adult and having to adult. Christine and Julie talk about vulnerability, perfectionism, people pleasing, and more.
