Episode 47: Set Aside Superwoman With Shaunti Feldhahn



Exhaustion has become the social norm among busy women. And let’s admit the hard truth, we often find ourselves glorifying those busy schedules, giving ourselves a pat on the back when we squeeze one more commitment into an already too-packed day, and admiring others who seem to handle the juggling act as if they were a professional in a three-ring circus.”

On today’s episode, Indiana talks with Shaunti Feldhahn, author and social researcher, about her latest research-based book, Finding Rest, and the practices science says we should make a part of our daily lives in order to become more rested women. They discuss the lie women believe that keeps us from rest and Shaunti shares one simple thing that has been scientifically shown to improve 89% of relationships within 30 days.
