This week is an entire episode dedicated to relationships—be they with friends, family, or significant others. The pandemic has put a lot of strain on you and your loved ones, in some cases due to distance and in others, due to living on top of one another for over a year with little to no personal space.

To help you do it, Sarah Knight presents a 3-tiered system for thinking about your relationships the same way you think about other important things in your life, assigning them value, and setting goals for them. She offers tips for maintaining, improving, or even dissolving them if need be. As always, listen to the end for the NFG tip of the week!

Back by popular demand, it’s another episode devoted to the principles behind Sarah’s book You Do You. This week, she talks about the value of “being weird” and why you should not only accept weirdness in yourself (if that’s your thing) but also accept it in other people, because why not? Nobody is hurting anyone else by being a goofball, and in fact it’s probably making life a little more fun during a time when we could all use a laugh. She gives a pep talk for all the weird weirdos out there, plus actionable tips for anyone looking to get more comfortable with getting weird—and a few stories from her own Freaky Files.

Today Sarah’s taking a break from No F*cks Given to recommend another podcast she thinks you’ll love: Body Stuff with Dr. Jen Gunter. We all have questions about our bodies, how they work, and what we can do to keep them running smoothly. Should we bother with juice cleanses? Is it actually possible to “boost” our immune systems? We’re constantly bombarded with ads, news stories, and social media posts telling us how to optimize our health—but a lot of these sources that pretend to be backed by science actually have another agenda. Dr. Jen Gunter is here to bust the lies we’re told—and sold—about our health, debunking some of the stickiest myths out there while helping us to understand how our bodies really work. Episode 1 of this fun, informative podcast is out now, and it answers the question: Do I really need eight glasses of water a day? To listen, find and follow Body Stuff with Dr. Jen Gunter wherever you get your podcasts.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and inspired by listener emails, today’s episode features an important conversation about how our relative levels of privilege affect our access to “wellness”—including self-care and mental health care and of course, the ability to not give a f*ck, depending on where you fall on the spectrum. Sarah approaches these complex and nuanced issues with empathy and humor, probably also making some missteps along the way, but ultimately in hopes of using her own privilege to raise awareness about all of it and offer ideas, inspiration, and support to those who can’t easily access it anywhere else. As always, listen to the end for the NFG tip of the week! Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Radio.com, or wherever you get your podcasts.

In-the-moment strategies for anyone experiencing one of the “Four Faces of Freaking Out” that Sarah Knight describes in this episode: Anxiety, Sadness, Anger, or Avoidance (aka “Ostrich Mode”). Sarah offers up a technique from her bestselling book Calm the F*ck Down that she calls “sleight of mind.” It helps you shift your mindset from the freakout to its flip-side—like a f*cking magician!—at least for long enough to keep you from doing anything that’s going to make your situation WORSE.

Guess what? You can’t do it all at once, and if you’re trying, then you’re probably not doing any of it well. This episode is all about time management. Sarah explains why multi-tasking is not something you should aspire to be good at, and goes deeper into the importance of focus—for all of us, but with special attention to “late people.” Maybe it’s you, maybe it’s a loved one, but you know the type: someone who thinks they can’t be on time because it’s just not in their nature. Bullsh*t! Being late is not something you have to live with. (Or make other people live with…) You can stop making excuses and start being on time to meetings, dates, dinners, and appointments with one easy, effective strategy that Sarah serves up in this week’s episode.   Today’s topics:   •Why “late people” are full of sh*t •The myth of multi-tasking •Reminder on GYST Theory: FOCUS •The secret to never being late again •Weekly NFG tip: “Distance yourself from distraction!” Visit www.nofucksgivenguides.com for more information and to sign up for the No F*cks Given Newsletter.

This week’s focus is on prioritizing­—not only the sh*t you have to do, but also the sh*t you want to do, including “me-time” and recreational activities. Sarah’s Must-Do Method is a life hack that will help you manage your day-to-day tasks much better, get your self-care in, still be able to procrastinate (responsibly!), and ultimately avoid the overwhelming burnout that caused her to turn to a litter box for comfort.   Today’s topics:   •Prioritizing by urgency •Responsible procrastination •How your to-do list is is hurting you •Turning your to-do list into a MUST-do list •The importance of “me-time” •Weekly NFG tip: “You’ve got to lobby for your hobby!”   Visit www.nofucksgivenguides.com for more information and to sign up for the No F*cks Given Newsletter.
