I am so excited about tonight. I am hosting an Aunty Party. This means that two of my nieces and one of my nephews are coming over to stay. Yes - we are about to have a party! What a reminder this is of what is important.
Sometimes we put a lot of pressure on the people closest to us to love us. This is learned behaviour. It can make a huge difference in our lives if we can become conscious of where we are looking for love.
For the last few days, I have disappeared on a coastal walk in New Zealand. As well as finding it wonderful to be out in nature that same relationship with the earth concerned me. This is what I discuss in today’s podcast.
Even the most extraordinary sporting stars have bad days. But what happens when those become bad years? Is it possible to turn things around? Absolutely it is, and it is a lesson to us all about powerful ways of being in the world.
One of my students wrote with a great question. She seems to do well with her self-care when everything is going OK. However, when a crisis hits, it all falls apart. She needs help in stopping this cycle.
A friend came to me a few days ago unhappy about her work. She felt dissatisfied with it. When I asked her what she wanted to be doing, she said she wished she was doing something to change the world. In today’s podcast, I explain how you can do precisely that.
Many of us have morning rituals that help start our days in the best way possible. One of my clients asked me if she could do things at night to help her wake up happier in the morning. In this podcast, I give my thoughts.
Is there an expiry date to dreams? What if you’ve suffered a lot and feel you might be too old to dream? In today’s podcast, I answer a question from one of my students questioning whether it’s too late to dream.
Is it ok to feel proud of myself? Doesn’t feeling proud of myself mean that I am arrogant? In today’s podcast, I answer a question from one of my students and discuss what healthy and unhealthy pride looks like.
We all know the person in the room who complains about how hard their life is. Sometimes that person is us. It can be challenging for us to see how we can attach to our suffering, so it becomes a part of our identity.
Many of you write to me and tell me that you're changing the way you are with other people. The only stumbling block you have is when you are driving. What is it about driving that get's us angry with other people? And how is driving a metaphor for life?
Being busy is seen as a badge of honour. The busier we are, the more important we appear. However, we're constantly overwhelmed by our busyness. What is it that we are doing when we're consistently trying to fill our lives up?
As I sat at my friend's father's funeral this week, I listened to all of the beautiful things people said about him. He was such a kind and gentle man—a real gentleman. No one talked about his achievements. They only talked about who he was. It got me thinking about what it is that people remember about us.
Many of you are writing about your concerns as some countries are showing signs of starting to reopen. Even if you are excited about the light at the end of the Covid tunnel and the prospect of some aspects of the life you are used to resuming, change can still be daunting. Having gone through this experience four months ago when I returned to New Zealand, I know how you feel.
Habits can be hard to break. But what do we do when the odds are against us? What if whole industries are created to keep us hooked on their products? In today’s podcast, I discuss the hold that processed food companies have on us and why it can be so hard for us to move out from under their grip.
A few of you have written about struggling with balancing generosity and boundaries. It can be easy for people to take advantage of us. In today’s podcast, I discuss how to stay generous while maintaining good boundaries.
