New Day

Every week on New Day, we’ll find one new way to make life a little better. So many of us are suffering in silence. Maybe you’re successful but miserable at work. Perhaps you have the perfect family on Instagram, but you’re at each other’s throats IRL. Maybe you can’t even put your finger on what feels weird – but you know you deserve more. Whatever it is, you’re not alone. I’m Claire Bidwell Smith, author, therapist, and grief expert. On New Day, we share easy actions you can try to keep moving forward. From waking up with more energy, to redefining balance, and making time for hobbies again, my incredible guests and I (with topics you help us identify) don’t shy away from helping you answer the big question we’re all asking: How can I lead a more fulfilling life?
