    Loved this episode, per usual! I thought your tips were great & especially liked the 5th one & your easy strategies for meditation/finding some quiet time through things like driving in silence or taking deep breaths while walking. I think those suggestions are perfect for especially busy days where taking the time to sit down & meditate for 10 minutes seems like an impossible task 😉

      Making time for ourselves is so important and unfortunately a lot of the time it is overlooked. Even if it is 10 minutes, it will definitely help you feel more relaxed and grounded. I’m glad you enjoyed the tips Shannon!

    I love the girly moments at the beginning! I wasn’t into weddings or wedding dresses until my friends started getting married, and then when I got engaged in 2002 (been married since 2003). If you want to talk about wedding/marriage stuff, please feel free to continue talking about it on the podcast! 😀 And don’t worry about what future fashion might be. My hubby and I had a medieval-themed wedding, and 11 years later, I still love my photos, and I don’t think my dress looks horrible. 😉 Maybe because it was mine, but it’s all good!

    And thank you Charissa for sharing your meditation space, and the extra stress relieving fit segment!

    I really liked what you said about fitting in exercise time! When I’m frazzled I don’t fit it in. Fitting it in, makes me feel on my game!

      I agree Hollie! Even when I don’t feel like exercising because I’m busy or feeling lazy, I end up doing it anyways and feel 100 times better afterwards. Thanks for listening!

    Hey I am new to the podcast and I love it so far. I got a late start. The topics discussed were great but my only issue was with talking about the swimsuit cover. Hannah Davis is not plus size. Just saying. Maybe you two correct this later but what you discussed about it was on point. Great podcast!
