The house is a mess.
Your phone keeps beeping.
You can’t bear to look at your work emails.
And your husband wants to know what’s for dinner tonight.
Modern life can be soul-crushing.
Everyone needs you for something. You can never catch up on your work.
And so, when someone tells you that you need to take time for yourself, you have to force down the urge to hit them.
Who has time to look after themselves?
Who has the energy?
We’re expected to be there for everyone else, we take on job that aren’t ours, and we give more than we have in order to make the world a better place. Pleasing others makes us happy.
But what’s left for us?
If our friends, family and partners don’t offer to take some of the burden off our shoulders, we end up running on empty and resenting those we love the most.
The solution is simpler than you think.
Start leaning into your pleasure.
Listen in as Amy talks with Terah about how you can start your own Pleasure Practice, enlist a Pleasure Posse, and start feeling the romance of living again.
Even if you don’t have time to clean the kitchen, let alone listen to a podcast, take a moment to remember what it was like to feel alive, joyous, free, and full of energy to take on the world.
When was the last time you felt that way?
Does it seem like that feeling is gone for good?
What would it be worth to you to feel that way again?
