Chances are if you’re human, you’ve felt overworked. Like there’s never enough time and you’re stretched to the max.
When you’ve got big dreams and you’re juggling deadlines, work, health and family — the last thing you want to hear is about the benefit of slowing down. But here’s the thing. Innovative breakthroughs rarely happen when you’re burned out.
My best ideas often appear in ordinary or even playful moments. They rarely (if ever) happen when I’m trying to force them. Nor do they appear when I’m in hyper-focused-got-to-get-it-done mode.
But making time for self-care strategies is easier said than done though, right?
Latham Thomas, author of Own Your Glow, is here to help. My dear friend and celebrity wellness guru was inspired to write her latest book after watching so many women prioritize everyone and everything above themselves — to the detriment of their own health and mission in the world.
Latham is no stranger to having a crazy-busy schedule. She runs her own business, has been named one of Oprah’s Super Soul 100 and one of Mind Body Green’s Top 100 Women to Watch in Wellness. And, she’s done it all while raising her young son as a single mom.
In today’s episode of MarieTV, we cover:
- A surprising and much needed upgrade on the popular, “Fake it till you make it” mantra
- 3 powerful questions to ask yourself when debating whether to prune something (or someone) out of your life
- The #1 way to reboot and reset yourself while you’re deep in work-mode
- Why giving yourself white space is key to growing to your next level
After you’ve listened to this episode, Latham and I would love to hear from you.
What’s the single biggest insight you’re taking away from today’s conversation and how can you turn that insight into action right now? If you’ve got more than one, fantastic.

Remember, share as much detail as possible in your reply. Thousands of incredible souls come here each week for insight and inspiration and your observation may help someone else have a meaningful breakthrough.
Important: share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they come across as spammy.
And don’t forget…
Self-care isn’t just some airy fairy, self-indulgent concept. It’s a core component to becoming your most joyful, creative and effective self. Not to mention, you’ll be enormously more patient and present with family and friends, too.
This is about less force and more flow; less stress, more synchronicity. When you’re able to do that dance of hustle and flow, you’re less likely to get sick and more able to make the difference you were born to make.
As always — thanks for reading, watching and sharing. The conversations that happen here are true nourishment for my soul.
With tons of love,
