Too Busy to Feel; But Then Not Busy Enough to Face it All

Too Busy to Feel; But Then Not Busy Enough to Face it All

July 9, 2020

This episode was inspired by a member in Widows Empowering Widows on Facebook who had both a wedding anniversary coming up, quickly followed by the first anniversary of her husband's death.  She had been keeping herself very busy since he passed.  But now feels like she cannot keep herself busy enough to distract herself from the pain of these upcoming dates.  What happens when busy works for a while, but then you can't be busy enough?  Email:  Joann@joannthelifecoach.com  Website:  https://joannthelifecoach.com 

Get on Your Death Bed

Get on Your Death Bed

June 19, 2020

Widows, don't run away!  "Get on your death bed" will make total sense if you join me in listening to this episode.  It is the practice that I think everyone should apply to constantly stay motivated in their life.  It is what some very very successful people practice to keep focused on what's important.  More about widow coaching:  https://joannthelifecoach.com   Subscription membership: https://widowcoachingcenter.com  Email me:  Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com

Relationships With the Dead

Relationships With the Dead

February 6, 2020

Today's Widow Cast podcast was recorded live while broadcasting on video to my free Facebook group:  Widows Empowering Widows.  In our group, conversations had come up around the feeling that the relationship with their spouse who had passed on was gone and no more.  On the contrary, relationships are all about how we think about the other person.  Because those relationships are part of who we are, they can live on even as we move through the grief process.  Find out how on today's episode.   You can reach out to me at joann@joannthelifecoach.com  Check out the subscription membership at https://widowcoachingcenter.com

Ep 147 Widow Thoughts

January 2, 2020

What are you thinking as a widow?  About you?  About your loss?  About your life?  About your money?  About all your external relationships?  Our thoughts often are all over the place.  Sometimes our brain is telling us thoughts that make us feel awful or fearful.  I think many thoughts are "thought errors."  You are not at the mercy of every thought your brain fires at you!  Learn more in this podcast about what "thought errors" are how to deal with them.  email:  Joann@JoannTheLifeCoach.com  Website:  http://joannthelifecoach.com

When your spouse passed away, did you wonder, "How long will the money last until I run out?"  Did you struggle with money issues even as you were consumed with grief?  For most of us, we think we are going to become a bag lady.  I speak very openly from a place of complete authenticity to share how I felt and the fact that you CAN be okay.  There are ways you can build your own support.  email:  Joann@Joannthelifecoach.com   Website:  https://joannthelifecoach.com  Widow Coaching Center:  https://widowcoachingcenter.com
