Dr. Julie Helmrich, psychologist from Milwaukee, WI and creator of Shrink n Drink, takes on-air questions and written questions.  Written questions are submitted via Messages on the Shrink n Drink Facebook page.  Questions are about generally about interpersonal relationships at home and work (spouses & partners, children, co-workers),  goal-directed behavior and self-leadership, and clinical issues such as anxiety, depression, and addiction.  Today's questions were 1) Are people who rigidly live by to-do lists better off? 2) Is it a good or bad idea to "cram" down-time? 3) I love getting things done but don't make any headway on long-term goals (like learning to play the piano), 4) How do I change my very stressful behavior of procrastination? 5) Accomplishment-focused husband worried about stressing goal-free wife, 6) Tips for what to do with being fatigued with trying to get so much done when still so much to do.
