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?

THIS WEEK’S LIVE HAPPIER, HEALTHIER AND BETTER CHALLENGE
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.
Enjoy the show and thanks again for taking the time to rate and review the show – it’s like tipping the bartender and it means the world. (To do this from your phone, you can’t be ‘in the show list’. Go to the podcast search function and type low tox life, and then click on the show and click ‘review’. Annoyingly tricky but hey. I figured I may as well help you out if you’re going to want to take the time to leave a review!)
