238. Sam & Lola in LA LA LAND - Health & Wellness

I know health might not sound like a topic we’d be covering in an entertainment industry podcast, but we’ve always believed, no matter what your career goals are, health needs to be a priority. Health keeps you feeling clear and that you’re putting your best foot forward. Think about it; when you’re healthy you’re sleeping better, you’re less inflamed and you might even be a nicer version of yourself.Lola’s also a trained nutritionist so in this episode Sam gets to grill her on all and any health questions. From sleep hacks to decreasing inflammation in the body to finding balance.Health looks different for everyone and at the end of the day it’s about feeling your best. Of course when it comes to health, like any of us, it’s best to seek the advice of a trained health professional who can look at your case specifically.Talk Points:- Side notes; we both loved seeing Top Gun at the iconic Chinese Theatre; you can just book a ticket like going to the movies back home. Here’s the website I used to book my tickets: http://www.tclchinesetheatres.com/- Here’s the health shop I went to for those full on shots, its expensive but worth at least one visit when you’re in town. Special mention; I also love their vegan taco salad and deep dish pumpkin pie. https://www.erewhonmarket.com/- Guest 1: We get 3 top tips on how to deal with overwhelm from Australian solutions focussed therapist Pettina Stanghon https://www.instagram.com/pettina.stanghon.solutions/- Guest 2: Top UK Performance and wellness coach Harry Jameson teach us how to stay active and focussed when time is limited https://www.instagram.com/harryjamesonpt/We hope you loved this episode; remember we’re doing an “Ask Us Anything” episode so feel free to DM us anything you’d like answered in the ask us anything epSam insta: https://www.instagram.com/samrken/https://www.instagram.com/samrken/Lola insta: https://www.instagram.com/yummololaberry/Big love!

237. Fearlessly Failing: Meditation & Mindfulness with Monaj Dias

Manoj is a Buddhist meditation and mindfulness teacher. I think this episode will inspire you to really embrace the things that make us feel more mindful and connected. Manoj openly shares about his journey to date. I ask him to talk about Holotropic breathwork; what it is and what it does. As 2 days before this chat I'd been to one of his breathing classes and I had no idea what to expect but was go smacked by all the different experiences; people were crying, screaming and laughing, it seemed like a huge release. I get Manoj to share some of his Buddist philosophies with us; the tail of the 2 arrows is really interesting and something we can most differently apply in our real life. Here’s a little more about Manoj:-       He co-owns Open; a meditation, movement and mindfulness space here in Venice, LA but it’s also a wonderful online place to access mindfulness; they’ve set me up with a code to give you 30 days trial for free that you can do from the comfort of your own home from anywhere in the world. https://go.o-p-e-n.com/LOLA30 -       Here’s a link to Manoj’s first book: Still together https://www.amazon.com/Still-Together-Connection-through-meditation/dp/1743796714  -       And here’s his insta: https://www.instagram.com/manojdias_/-       You’ll hear us talk about our mutual mate Joe Wicks AKA The Body Coach who taught me the term “wobble day.” He’s also been on the pod too, you can listen to that episode here: https://shows.acast.com/fearlessly-failing/episodes/97.fearlesslyfailing-joewicksakathebodycoach-       Manoj also mentioned the book The Surrender Experiment by Michael A.
