1120. Jana Kramer On How To Rebuild Your Happiness After Trauma

I'm so excited to share my conversation with the incredible Jana Kramer, a country music singer, actress, podcast host, and New York Times bestselling author. Today, we chat all about her vulnerable new book, “The Next Chapter,” on her sudden divorce and how she learned to love herself, release the weight of self-blame, and rebuild her life. 

In our conversation, Jana shares her emotional experiences from the day she filed for divorce to the following year, focusing on her personal growth and self-discovery. She opens up about her journey with forgiveness and peace while connecting with her spirituality and intuition. Jana shares how she practices healthy habits throughout her daily routine, the tools she uses to focus on her happiness, and how she sheds past negative energy, hate, and anger. Jana hopes her story will help others on their paths to healing and self-discovery, so listen in for a reminder that you are worthy of love!
