On this episode host Anna Seewald talks to Dr. Jen Riday on the importance of self care. Jen shares a heartbreaking story from her life that led her to shift things in her life.

About Jen: Jen is a 42-year-old mom of six and Women’s Happiness Expert who lives just outside of Madison, Wisconsin with her family. Jen was raised on a farm with the values of hard work and honesty, and today Jen’s priorities are spirituality, family, health and helping women find happiness (in that order). In her free time Jen enjoys yoga, meditation, time in nature, and curling up with a great book.


After I clawed myself out of the emotional pit that resulted from events on the most horrible day of my life (so far), I learned several things that helped me let go of the guilt I used to feel when I took time for myself:

Remember, I’m loved and I’m worthy.
I’m 100% in charge of my life and happiness.
The greatest gift I can give my loved ones is my own happiness.
I’m happiest when I take care of myself first (and others second).
The Wheel of Happiness is the perfect guide for my use of time so that I take care of ALL aspects of myself.
