Inspirational Shorts - Authenticity
Welcome to Episode 113 and this week's Friday Podcast. I thought I would give you an insight for the weekends, and prepare you for Mondays.  The topic for today is Authenticity. These Friday podcasts will be typically under 3 minutes, and just a pit stop.  Each Friday I share with you an insight or revelation and I hope that It will bless you as it blesses me. Today it is to encourage you to go out and do some exercise, in whatever way you want to do it. A great way to make the most of these recordings is to check out the accompanying blogpost, or you can watch the video on YouTube, and have a journal or art journal handy, so that you can either make notes or create something from what inspires you.  You can check me out on the following platforms, Amanda Trought on Social Media (Realityarts): www.youtube.com/amandatrought  www.twitter.com/Realityarts  www.instagram.com/realityarts/  www.facebook.com/realityartss/  http://realityarts-creativity.blogspot.com

Arts and Wellness Wednesdays - Decisions
Welcome to the Episode 112 of the Podcast and the Arts and Wellness Wednesdays.   In today's episode I look at ways in which we can get ourselves in and out of feeling overwhelmed by the things that we do.  Our creative projects and challenges can make us feel stressed out if we have given ourselves too many things to do.  I found that when I did the pastel challenge I underestimated how I would feel at the end, but because I knew the feeling I was able to better manage things.  How do you manage your work flow?  The Good news for the podcast is that I am going to keep the format the same for the time being - I like having the 3 different episodes each week rather than everything all lumped into one.  You have a choice to listen to just one or all three, you can also download the episodes for future listening.   Let me know if there were any specific arts and health topics that you would like me to cover on the show, and I will add them to the list. As the pastel challenge has come to an end I have created prints and other accessories that you can take a look at HERE If you want to look at some ways in which to get back into your creative projects, I have posted two videos on my YouTube channel working in your Art Journal and working with leather - chamois and creating your own stencils - great fun. On Wednesdays we focus on the Arts and how it can impact our health and well-being. I will be talking with artists, looking at activities that you can do to be more creative across the board and for those who are carers tips and strategies that you can use. I will also be sharing reviews, resources and other insights. I will be looking at the nuggets that the artists share and see how we can apply it in some way to our own lives, what ever your interests.  For information on arts events in Barbados check out the Barbados Visual Arts event online Magazine Published by Corrie Scott.

Art and Wellness Wednesday - Dementia Recognizing the Symptoms
Welcome to Episode 99 of the podcast.  Today on Arts and Wellness Wednesday I will be talking about Dementia and recognizing the signs and symptoms and the use of creativity to help support those living with the disease and those who are caring for those living with the disease. It follows on from my talk about the work I have done in the arts and health field in last weeks podcast, number 96 which you can listen to. I have found that the arts can make a big impact on those who are living with Dementia and their carers and where ever you can put in place activities  it is vital. I have written about my experience being a carer and working through the maze of Dementia and Care on my blog and provided information and tips about some of the things that you can do.  The services available will vary depending on where you live and funding  The majority of carers have experienced the lack of funding for their loved ones, but there are resources that you can access and it is important that you find out as much as you can about the disease and what is available. In the UK you can access Age UK and Alzheimer's Society. In Barbados you can contact the Barbados Alzheimer's Association (BAA) - think about making a donation to the work that they do..  They offer regular training, keeping you updated and informed about the disease and resources available (Participation Program), hold yearly seminars with speakers coming in from all around the Caribbean and further afield and share a lot of important and relevant information, and the work is done by volunteers so they do need your support.   You can give them a call on:  Tel:  246-418-0741 or 824-3365 and see how you can help them further their work. On Arts and Wellness Wednesdays I cover the way that art can impact on our health and well-being and encourage you to find a way to incorporate Art in what ever form you choose into your regular daily practice, so you can come to my YouTube channel and see art videos and tutorials, and be inspired and encouraged. If you would like to get more creative but not sure of what to do sign up for two free 30 minute sessions where you can talk about the things that matter or you want to work through creatively.  More information HERE Please consider sharing this information, dementia effects the whole community and we need to be the bridge of support for those who are directly dealing with the disease, and look at the range of creative resources that we can use.

Episode 96 - Arts and Wellness - with Artist and Host Amanda Trought
Welcome to Episode 96 and Arts and Wellness Wednesday.  Today I am sharing about the work that I have been doing in the Arts and Health field.  It all started for me when my mother began showing signs of Dementia and we had to put something in place to manage - I needed to find a way to cope through it all.  I have found creativity to be a lifesaver and not only helped me cope with the ever increasing demands on my time, but also was a great tool for my mother to be able to express herself in different ways. The more I got involved into the connection between art, creativity and health the more opportunities opened up to be able to talk about the work I was doing and people who were impacted. On Wednesdays we focus on the Arts and how it can impact our health and well-being, looking at activities that you can do to be more creative across the board and for those who are carers tips and strategies that you can use. I will also be sharing reviews, resources and other insights. I will be looking at the nuggets that the artists share and see how we can apply it in some way to our own lives, what ever your interests.  For information on arts events in Barbados check out the Barbados Visual Arts event online Magazine Published by Corrie Scott.

Episode 57 - Openness
Welcome to Fridays Inspiration post to get you set for the weekend and the week ahead.  Today I talk about being Open.  We very often think that we are being transparent but we hide even from ourselves.  Have a think about the things that you hide even from yourself. The best way to utilize these weekly 'Friday Shorts' is to spend time meditating on the words and allowing them to permeate your inner consciousness. Think about the changes you would like in your own life and the step or steps you would like to take.  Take out your art journal and be creative, use colour, texture, whatever you feel inspired to use.

Episode 54 - Creating in Faith - Endurance
Happy Monday, and Welcome to this week's Podcast. Today I will be talking about Endurance and how that has shown up in my life and experiences.  Often times when we think about the things that are worrying us we end up reminding ourselves of the lack, we have to try and change our perspective. When we ask for a change of the situation we have to believe that we have received it and await the manifestation - then get on with our lives enjoying what we do have and feeling the joy.  There is always something to feel joy about regardless how small. A great way to make the most of these recordings is to check out the accompanying blogpost, or you can watch the video on YouTube, and have a journal or art journal handy, so that you can either make notes or create something from what inspires you.  Let me know how you get on.

Episode 40 - Creating in Faith - Growth
Welcome to today's Creating in Faith Episode, and the topic for today is Growth. We can't ignore that it is also Christmas Eve and I am blown away that you chose to listen to the podcast while you navigate the work functions, and getting together with friends and loved ones.  Take a moment to think about those who live alone, who are isolated, or don't have the luxury of having a roof over their head - but don't just think about it see what you could do to bring joy into the life of a stranger this year.  There are many initiatives that are organised to give those who are homeless somewhere they can come and get a warm meal and some company, see if you can take part in something organised in your area and impact positively on the life of another in some way. Today the topic is on growth and we all want to think that by the end of a year that we have done more than we did the previous year - reflect on your life over the past 12 months and see if that is the case for you.  It is also an idea to see what you can put in place for the following 12 months, think of all the goals that you would like to achieve and take the steps to make something happen. I would love to hear from you, to see how you are getting on and what has inspired you.  Remember, if you are thinking of taking part in the Mixed Media Play Date online Course I will be giving away several bonuses when you use my link and up until tomorrow (25th) you can get 20% off the course by using the code PLAYDATE at the checkout - check it out Here -  http://bit.ly/MMPAT19 You can check me out on the following platforms, Amanda Trought on Social Media (Realityarts): www.youtube.com/amandatrought  twitter.com/Realityarts  www.instagram.com/realityarts/  www.facebook.com/realityartss/  http://realityarts-creativity.blogspot.com

Episode 38 - Creating In Faith - Introduction
Hi and welcome to this weeks podcast.  I am in the process of starting a new series called Creating in Faith and it touches on a variety of things within your creative practice.   It calls for you to use art and develop your creative practice, every day, not sometimes but each and every day if it is only 5 minutes that you spend in your creative space touching your supplies, doing a quick sketch, but you have to find time for you. My faith reminds me not to take my creative gifts for granted and I believe that our talents are to bless ourselves and others in the world.  That song you might sing, the poem you write or expressing through dance, instrumental, photography and for me time making something or working in my garden all can bless someone somewhere in the world. You will see from the October Bonus Challenge recordings how it all started and I hope it encourages you to start a challenge for yourself. I will be sharing with you a word of encouragement each week and ideas for some creative play as well! Also remember that I am teaching on the Mixed Media Play Date and I have bonuses for you when you click on my link, you can check them out here:  https://mailchi.mp/a72360190dcb/mmpd2019-bonuses You can check me out on the following platforms, Amanda Trought on Social Media (Realityarts): www.youtube.com/amandatrought www.twitter.com/Realityarts www.instagram.com/realityarts/ www.facebook.com/realityartss/ realityarts-creativity.blogspot.com

Welcome to this week's Friday Podcast. I thought I would give you an insight for the weekends, and prepare you for Mondays. These Friday podcasts will be typically under 3 minutes, and just a pit stop. I hope you enjoy and have a blessed weekend.

I encourage you to keep going on your journey and look how far you have come and enjoy the journey. It takes small steps.
