I wrote Running on Empty based on the dilemmas my clients struggle with. Things like:
Why do I never feel fulfilled with what I have?
Why does every day feel like groundhog day?
What the heck should I be doing with my life?
How do I manage this crazy amount of stress and become more zen like my cat Skittles?
How do I stop judging myself and others?
What does work/life balance look like for me?
Why should I bother with meditation, yoga or any of that new age crap?
