3 quotes about fear stopping you | Episode 87
We’re talking about fear and the way it stops us from doing the things we want to do. Fear is at the base of any time we show hesitation or doubt. I’ve spent alot of time, and wasted alot of time, making decisions based on what scares me, and I think it’s something we need to face. Here are 3 quotes to help us look at fear and how it stops us. if you would like to know more about my mindfulness & mindset programs, please visit http://makesunshine.org/links/go/ come find me on Instagram @makesunshineco

3 quotes for building better habits | Episode 81
Thank you so much for your patience - I was supposed to be back last week, but I underestimated how much time I would have to myself and then it was Friday and still no podcast - which is completely okay for course isn’t it? This week’s episode is about building better habits so we can stay on track with our goals :) I have 3 quotes that I’d love to share with you! I didn’t come into camera today to record the podcast so only check out the video version if you want to see the artwork I made for each quote ;)  Let me know which quote is your favourite, come and find me on instagram @makesunshineco

Uncertain, imperfect, irresponsible | what I’m learning about OCD | Episode 80
Hooray it’s episode 80! I’m so glad you made it :)  This week I wanted to talk about a set of words that have kept me going while I start to understand and work through my OCD and anxiety - a lot of the healing is through action and being and doing, so working with our brains (thoughts) and teaching our bodies (action and stored trauma) new safety signals is how we start to live with challenges like this. i’m taking a 2 week break while my kids are on school holidays, so I hope you can check back on a past episode or two while I‘m away. Let know if there are any quotes you love - come and find me on instagram @makesunshineco or thisquotepodcast.com see you soon!  tracey x

Hey guys, I’m back with a new episode - maybe one of the most important ones I’ve made.  If you can watch this video on Spotify or YouTube, i’m sharing with you (visually) 2 things - my eczema rash and a mini vlog from my trip into the city over the weekend. It’s the first time I’ve shared a photo of my eczema online - I’m about 3 months into this flare up and it’s sucks BUT I know someone will relate. I really like making videos - so if you like seeing more about my life, let me know on instagram @makesunshineco so I can create more for you :)  Remember this quote - we cannot change everything, but we can choose alot of things instead and despite it.

Who am I? What do I want? How do I get there? | EPISODE 69
This episode is sort of a 'part 2' from last week's quote - I think once you know who you AREN'T, then asking yourself these 3 questions becomes easier.  Who are you? What do you want? How are you going to get there?  This doesn't just apply to your career choices - think about it as a guide & compass for anything in your life that you really want to work on right now. Relationships, your physical health, your mental health, how you speak to yourself, how you parent...  Let me know if this quote helps you!

Challenges Are Not Sent To Destroy You | Mini Resilience Reminder | Episode 65
I think the whole world is feeling all kinds of stuff right now - I've been keeping it low this past week and wanted to share some words of hope, instead of my usual motivational story telling. There's never enough words I can share that will ever be enough, but I hope this small offering helps someone today. I hope wherever you are in the world, you are safe.  Here are some links to help the people of Ukraine -  Ukrainian Red Cross - https://redcross.org.ua/en/donate UNICEF - https://www.unicefusa.org/helpukraine UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency - https://donate.unhcr.org Save the Children - https://savethechildren.org/ukraine-donate World Health Organization Foundation - https://www.ukraine.who.foundation/ You can also search Etsy for sellers in Ukraine, and purchase a DIGITAL product from them. This gets them some funds directly.  You can also search for AirBNB's in Ukraine and book their properties. Let them know you are donating and NOT staying, so they can offer their property to displaced people.  Here are some links to help the people effected by the floods here in Australia -  https://www.redcross.org.au/floodsappeal -------------------------------- As always, find me on Instagram @makesunshineco or on my new podcast website thisquotepodcast.com  If you'd like to support me, you can visit my Etsy store where I create Mindfulness worksheets https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/MakeSunshineCo or buy me a slice of pizza via https://www.buymeacoffee.com/thisquotepod Tracey x
