Thinking, thinking, thinking…we can’t stop thinking. When we talk about selfcare it usually contains words like diet and exercise. But what about our emotional care?
Nancy Colier is an author, psychotherapist, and mindfulness teacher. Her books include Can’t Stop Thinking and The Power of Off: The Mindful Way to Stay Sane in a Virtual World. Her newest book, The Emotionally Exhausted Woman: Why You’re Feeling Depleted and How to get What You Need will be released this fall. Nancy has been featured on Good Morning America, The New York Times and countless other media. She is also a regular writer, blogger for Psychology Today and Huffington Post.
We’re exhausting ourselves without even realizing it. As women, we are conditioned to believe that we can do it all and have it all. And we must keep smiling and look perfect at the same time. Nancy Colier kept meeting women who described themselves as being ‘emotionally exhausted.’ When asked ‘who’s taking care of you?’ most burst into tears. Over the years, Nancy has seen a growing disconnection to ourselves and our own authenticity. Little by little it has been taking place. Constantly thinking has taken a huge toll.
