Never Before/2 Dope Queens

Going to and from work can be a daunting task. Not all of us are the ‘leave work at work’ types. There are daunting to-do lists, thoughts of tasks completed and uncompleted, emails to answers and tons of other dull daily tasks to get done. If you’re looking for a little motivation to get through the day, it’s not easy leave it up to your own anxiety, which can be so loud that you actually can hear yourself think WAY too much.

Dull the roar of ominous roar of the day ahead and/or the day you need to leave behind with the help of these empowering podcasts.
