Episode 61: Reclaiming Your Brain

with Megan Chambers

Megan Chambers is the former Production Assistant for A Healthy Curiosity Podcast, and the Office Manager at my acupuncture clinic, Life in Balance Acupuncture.

Professionally, Megan has dabbled in sound editing, video editing, print/digital editing, graphic design, website/content management, social media management, event management, development, IT support, and general administrative support, primarily in health-related environments. She’s an intersectional feminist, an activist, an outdoor enthusiast, and a dog-lover. Megan also volunteers with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) as an advocate for a child in the foster care system.

Megan joins me to talk about the ways we sometimes outsource our stress and responsibility to other people, causing not only more strife in our relationships, but also more stress in the lives of people we love. It’s important to stay mindful and reclaim our brains, drawing boundaries with ourselves and with others to ensure that we’re only taking on what is ours.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Outsourcing responsibility
  • Using the tools available to us
  • Drawing boundaries
  • Raising good partners/housemates and competent humans
  • Productive vs. unproductive personal energy expenditure
