    Enjoyed your podcast! So down-to-earth. I’m a teacher. No more kids at home, but I’m teaching every day with my class. Your advice about self care is valuable and one we all should use wisely 😉 THANKS to the Balanced Life and Sisterhood – it’s such a refreshment to my ‘new’ routine of daily life!

    Thank you for talking about your faith in this podcast! My adult daughter and I have always said…she is definitely a Christian! This is the first time I have had a chance to listen to a podcast. Mother of grown children, teacher by trade and remote ‘teaching’. This is my final year and such a sad way to finish, however, I have done my pilates every day which has been great!! Love the ‘grace over guilt’ line. Unfortunately, my daughter’s June wedding has been postponed til end of October. Even this is looking dubious especially since we live in the UK but are originally from Canada, many people, including grandparents will not be able to attend. They are waiting for the government office to open so they can get their hopefully get a licence and have our pastor marry them, even online, so they can start life together especially as there is a move asap when the restrictions lift. We are both members of the sisterhood and enjoy encouraging each other even though we are miles apart! Also, didn’t know about the app so will be getting that. Thanks Robin and God bless. You are such an encourager x

    I actually am most impacted by your section on friendship! I’ve been feeling so guilty about the amount of time I’ve been able to connect with others… (I’m a people pleaser) it’s helpful to know that other people are struggling with it, too. And it’s okay to prioritize!! Not only okay, but necessary!

    Everyone encounters a “mild” version of burnout – in situations where more stress than usual is required: exams, an emergency at work, children’s illness. When the situation is over, irritability, sleep disturbances, apathy, decreased motivation, depressive moods disappear, and desires return. Extra days off, sleep, time for yourself, vacation, sports are great help.
