The juggling woman handles the pressures of a modern life. But very often she struggles to cope up. Dr Libby Weaver offers practical solutions.
Striking a balance between home and work is one of the most challenging areas for almost every juggling woman today. There are some who balance it effortlessly with a proper support system in place. While there are others who fail to achieve this balance. For those women who are struggling to achieve balance, their health is affected enormously. And I am not speaking about physical health. It’s also about our minds. Why are women struggling emotionally ? And how can women cope up emotionally?
Dr Libby Weaver, a leading author and biochemist puts it most aptly, “When we live in this franctic pace, living on adrenaline, trying to be all things to all people, it could have dire physical, mental and emotional consequences.” Women are struggling to control their emotions, they feel exhausted and they feel that they can’t cope. They wish they had more hours in the day. They can’t remember anything.
Why is this happening? It is because many women are made to believe that they aren’t enough the way they are. They are not smart enough, they are not brainy enough, and they are not efficient enough. Women spend their lives trying to please everyone surrounding them.
They do this not to feel rejected and also because they care enough for their loved ones. This happens because they have beautiful hearts. It’s time to change these beliefs. It’s time for women to stop thinking that way. They need to perceive themselves differently and realise their own potential.
Women need to find a true connection to themsleves and they need to find a place of calm, free from anxiety. They need to achieve this place in their lives. It would lead to healthy emotions and a healthy mind. This is crucial because emotions affect our health enormously. We perform better when we are emotionally healthy.
According to Dr Libby, we need to provide nutrition to our bodies, so that it can perform the necessary mechanisms. This is only possible if we have enough time for ourselves. We need to stop rushing. It’s not advisable to please everyone at the cost of our health. We need to make time to nourish our own minds and bodies. “I want you to explore how we eat, drink, move, think, believe and perceive” she says.
She talks about these issues and offers practical solutions in this motivating video below. Watch!

Trigger Warning: This deals with mental trauma and depression, and may be triggering for survivors.
I am someone who believes in honesty and trust, I trust people easily and I think most of the times this habit of mine turns into bane.
This is a story of how a matrimonial website service turned into a nightmare for me, already traumatized by the two relationships I’ve had. It’s a story for every woman who lives her life on the principles of honesty and trust.
This can have a drastic effect on other victims of domestic violence. It will also encourage the abuser that they can now threaten their victim that he/she may end up like Amber Heard on the internet.
The lives of actors, be they from Hollywood or Bollywood, trouble my peace. Though they are worshipped by their fans, the real-life of many is quite troubled. It is scary to see what money and fame can do to a person. These are the people who have made me realize that fame and money are not that important.
I usually try to avoid reading about actors and their lives but there is no escape when the internet gets flooded with news and you come across it again and again as it happened with Aryan Khan’s arrest, Will Smith slapping Chris Rock, or now Amber Heard v/s Johnny Depp case.
We clearly see the pattern of uncivilized society in the above-mentioned cases where the mass verdict is passed even before the jury or judge passes the sentence. Usually, there is no middle ground for these people who are just there to make a topic trending on the internet. One is black and the other is white, there are no shades of grey for these modern-day witch hunters.
