What do I really need right now? We’re all asking that of ourselves in these chaotic times. If there is an upside to a confusing state of emergency, perhaps it springs from identifying what’s most important for our health and contentment. As we roll back to survival basics, protecting our most treasured and the connections that sustain us, our friend Peter Walsh, says this about all the rest of it: Let It Go. In the story of how the king of decluttering downsized his parents’ home after his mother’s death, he reminds us that through any life transition or upset, we can find peace in understanding the physical and emotional impact of surrounding ourselves with stuff we think we need, but really don’t. @PeterWalsh. #Itsjuststuff.

“Sometimes, I think I’m falling apart,” Ada Calhoun confesses in the opening line of an essay she wrote for Oprah.com in 2017. She struck a nerve with her Gen X peers who were ready to admit they could relate—struggling with careers, money, relationships, parenting, aging bodies, and more. Less than three years later, the award-winning journalist has expanded the piece into Why We Can’t Sleep: Women’s New Midlife Crisis. In this episode, we talk through the unrealistic expectations levied against an entire generation of women facing a plethora of obstacles that cannot just be meditated away. Calhoun has discovered ways to conquer them. More at AdaCalhoun.com Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
We are immersed in noise created by the busy-ness of our everyday lives. But how much of it is unnecessary? Bestselling author Ryan Holiday joins us in a conversation about his latest book, Stillness is the Key, stoicism and other ancient philosophies that challenge our infatuation with superficial symbols of status, and the stories we tell ourselves about our worth. On this stop on the Road to Somewhere, we’re reminded that striving for ideal starts from within, and the highest versions of ourselves can actually be accessed through stillness.
