  • 2. it’s time to listen to your intuition

    33:13
    EP73 - recently, i have felt that my decisions and how i am living my life has been overly influenced by others and what i think i should do rather than what i actually want. this episode is what you need to hear if you feel the same. we need to prioritise setting boundaries, tuning into what it is we want and learning to communicate effectively so we can navigate situations that impact ourselves and others productively. your life isn't yours if you constantly care what others think. hope this helps, lotsa love as always xoxo

    EP69 - so i did an event at the weekend with a q&a and thought it would be useful to share some of the answers i gave there. in this episode, i talk a lot about what i have learnt in terms of coping mechanisms for different stresses and challenges that often come along in life. whether that is waking up with anxiety, feeling frustrated towards a loved one or friend or comparing yourself to other people. whilst we have to accept that this will happen throughout life, we can become better at managing our reaction towards it and how we deal with it, that's the part that really matters. i hope you guys can relate and take something from this, lotsa love as always xoxo

    EP68 - we are constantly evolving and there is such beauty in that. we have an opportunity each day to make subtle changes to become who we want to be and achieve the goals we have set ourselves. coming back from Australia, there are a lot of small habits i want to prioritise maintaining and building upon, such as being more organised, cooking meals myself to fuel my body properly, improving my sleep pattern and more. maybe this can inspire some new habits for you or provide some motivation to dedicate yourself to creating habits that benefit your personal goals...lotsa love as always xoxo
  • 19. your body doesn't need fixing, your relationship with it does

    56:39
    EP67 - have you ever considered that the answer to your problems doesn't lie in losing weight and that it could be in healing the relationship you have with your body? i know from experience that your happiness and opportunities do not come from dieting and exercising to the point where you achieve a 'dream body'. your physical appearance cannot and will not resolve the issues you have that are related to your mental or emotional wellbeing. this episode is all about breaking down those bad body image days, how to deal with them and how to be kind to yourself because you are enough just as you are. let's focus on shifting that negative and unproductive mindset rather than numbers on the scales this year. lotsa love as always xoxo
