#77 Busy AF

In this episode, I'm discussing how a busy brain is a common reason why many women, especially those who are neurodivergent, use alcohol to cope. I explore where a busy brain comes from and how perfectionism plays a role. 

Episode Highlights:
- A busy brain can present as an overactive mind that replays the day's events and finds faults
- Perfectionism, productivity culture, and competition contribute to a busy brain
- Neurodivergence and trauma can make one more sensitive to daily "micro-traumas"
- Many use alcohol and other coping mechanisms to manage intense emotions and an unbearable modern world
- It's important to learn how to be with ourselves in distress without the use of substances
