It’s all too easy to brush off our feelings of discomfort and invalidate ourselves in this stressful, topsy turvy world we find ourselves in. Helen Meissner, mum, wife, music producer and business mentor gently encourages us to reconsider our own needs and be kinder to ourselves. Helen passionately believes that if you mind, it matters. She talks us through her observations after 55 years, a few marriages, numerous crises and cancer. Simple truths, reassuring reminders and unexpected insights are provided in this honest, holistic, heartfelt podcast from someone who’s been around the block a few times.
