1. Personal Enjoyment vs. Personal Gain

The Lana Blakely Podcast

12. Does being authentic and living honestly matter?
As teenagers, we often mould ourselves to fit in with others and to be accepted. Although natural and normal, is it really wise? What may the alternative be? The question then becomes, what do we have to gain from being authentic? And on the contrary, what do we have to lose by being inauthentic? All of that and more in today's episode "Does being authentic and living honestly matter?". Towards the end of the episode, Lana shares one of the tricks she uses to help evaluate her life.

9. Why are we so bad at consent and asking for permission?
Is it worth reading and studying the works of Shakespeare? Is the phrase "that's just the way that I am" a valid reason to not take a closer look at ourselves and to not change certain behaviours? Lana brings you another episode consisting of highs and lows; light-hearted topics and more serious ones. She also shares a story about a not-so-serious incident that happened to her recently, and how it got her thinking about some very serious things.

8. Why is it so hard to take good care of ourselves?
Lana has been sleep deprived for months, and it's starting to get to her. Something good that's come out of it is that she's been thinking more about how she's really treating herself and her body, and it's made her realise that something needs to change.

7. Does the way we dress reveal how intelligent we are?
Sometimes, we realise things about ourselves that aren't very pleasant to realise, and even less pleasant to talk about. In today's episode, Lana shares one of her latest realisations that has to do with the way we we're perceived by other people based on how we dress and take care of ourselves. Do intelligent women dress down and not care about the way they look? And do unintelligent women dress up? Well, according to what we see in certain movies - yes. But what does Lana think about that, and what's her personal experience?

1. Personal Enjoyment vs. Personal Gain
How often do we do the things we do because we purely enjoy it, and how often do we do the things we do because we're hoping to gain something from it? In this episode, Lana reflects on why it's sometimes difficult to sort out our intention for doing things, especially as a social media creator where opportunities to utilise situations for content creation lie in every corner.
