New Day

Lemonada Media

By audience request, New Day is now moving to 3 times a week! On each episode, we’ll find new ways 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 Mondays and Wednesdays on New Day, I share easy actions you can implement to make meaningful changes in your life, and also answer your questions. And on Friday, end your week with an interview with an amazing guest who has experienced something difficult in their lives that you can use to help you navigate challenging situations in yours. No one has all the answers. But three days a week, New Day from Lemonada Media is here to help improve your life one episode at a time.
