Episode 61: Enjoy A Warm Embrace on National Hug Day
In this episode I pay homage to National Day of Hugging. We take for granted the proximity we have wither those around us. Many people do not or are afraid of closeness since the Big C hit back in 2020.  I share some insight into the benefits of hugging from an emotional, mental and social level and how you can use visualisation to get you through those tough times when there is nobody around to hug. I encourage self compassionate hugging and challenge you to go and hug a friend, partner, neighour (with consent) and to enjoy the exchange and embrace while you can.   I rounded off the episode with some very fitting reminders from our advice and encouragement card deck (available to purchase again from our shop in early 2022): 1. Learn to be accepting of the things that are building you. They may not look how you envisioned them 2. If you did it once you can do it again. You possess the strength of a 1000 of you 3. Learn to appreciate the value of a pause. This allows you to be free to just exist Remember to follow us, share with your network and make sure you don't miss an episode!

Episode 58: Can you have constructive conflict resolution?
In this episode I talk on some of the insights of conflict resolution that I have learnt along the way of my journey to opening up my self esteem and learning newer and healthier ways to address conflict.  There are so many sources that provide tips and tools on how you can embrace constructive conflict as part of your ability to communicate, have healthy debate, find solutions, explore issues in a variety of relationship settings.  We won't always agree on things but this podcast really hones in on the importance of respect, accountability, boundaries and increased understanding and awareness. I round off the episode with some very fitting reminders from our advice and encouragement card deck (available to purchase again from our shop in early 2022), read in this order: 1. Love comes in many forms. The most important is the way you display compassion and affection towards yourself  2. Be scared and do it anyway. Nothing great was built on mediocrity and passiveness 3. Write down your emotions and thoughts. Blank pages will never judge you  Remember to follow us, share with your network and make sure you don't miss an episode!

Episode 51: Why do we apply permanent thinking in temporary situations?
In this episode I speak about how the book about Buddhism I have been reading has me thinking about how I apply my thinking - more specifically permanent thinking - to temporary situations. Why do we as humans do this?  I read a short exert from the book to help divide the thinking processes into 5 components and emphasises on how we are changing beings - so applying permanent thinking does not serve us, even when we are on our last breaths of physical life, we are still changing!  I don't have the answers but it did get me thinking about how i move through life, my health, my relationships and my internal voices - they are all in temporary states and I am learning to accept this.
