Podcast Show #21: Protect your health & empower yourself with psychologist Alison Hill

weleda logoFirst up, I wanted to highlight to you again our Weleda partner offer that is active for the whole month of December. Now, there are some really fab products I didn’t mention last week, if you have a friend who might be pregnant or some parents to be, gift giving can be a beautiful way to incite curiously – the Calendula range is so delicious, this is the first thing I ever put on my little guy’s skin! There’s the tooshi cream, the cream bath, the teething powder, the ‘boob tea’ aka nursing tea, and loads more! A little basket or pack for mum and bub can be a gorgeous little present for parents – there are just so many gift options on their website, if in doubt then a body lotion or shower gel is always something really handy. Weleda is amazing, these guys are committed to people and the environment in every facet of their business, but what I love is that they are all about accessibility, so their prices are super reasonable. Enjoy discovering this brand or stocking up on your favourites!

Now on with the show!

Psychological health is a huge factor in our low tox life and this show, we talk to psychologist Alison Hill to look at how we end up drowning in overwhelm, burn out and things we actually aren’t aligned with in both our personal and professional lives. We explore her awesome new book “Stand Out” and delve into super simple strategies to defining what’s truly important to you in life, to see how easy it is for you to fill your calendar with things to nourish you and we set a brilliant “line down the middle of a paper” challenge to sort through your regular “I do’s” over a cup of tea and make 2017 more fulfilling, joyful and empowering. Who doesn’t want a whole lot more o’ that right?

Get curious in your week, have a list on your phone or at your desk / close by you, and draw a line down the middle of the page. On one side write down what activities drain you and leave you feeling exhausted and shattered, and on the other side the activities that energise you… with the secret to your own success being – do what matters to you / nourishes your soul. Schedule in the stuff that nourishes you!
Remember, big shifts require big support. This is often when we need to double down on the ‘self care’ – so if you’re needing to make some shifts or changes, ensure you have the support to do so. Try to be present wherever you are.
Some advice or some steps we can take to chill out more and to stop the overwhelm: FIRE the ‘busy’! Make conscious choices when you do things, and own these choices. Reflect on and recognise what matters to you, and don’t sweat the stuff that doesn’t matter.
