Mindset Matters Show 76 with Zeenat Noorani - Wellbeing & Mindset Coach
Affirmation: Empowering Question of the week! What does having enough time mean to you? 💖'' What would you do if you had enough time? Time is a very funny thing because so many of say that we do not have enough time. If only I had time to finish off this task? If only I had enough time to do the things I love. If only I had the time to spend more time with my family and /or friends? Does this sound like you? Do you feel like you might be firefighting or have lost sight of the direction that you are going? Well, guys, the truth is that we all have the same amount of time, 24 hours in a day. We all have a choice when it comes to making decisions and taking action. We also have the ability to manage our time the way we want… don’t get me wrong, as I am just as guilty and often find myself firefighting… that is because I have lapsed when it comes to my Time Management and the ability to be flexible…Therefore, I need to bring myself back to the drawing board and also seek external support to help organise thoughts, mindset and tasks etc… Here are some tips from her video. To watch the full clip visit: 1. Prep for your day: Devote a few minutes at the beginning of each day to performing a morning ritual of meditation. Taking this time helps you prime your mind, clearing out negative thoughts and readying you to be productive in the day ahead. 2. Prioritize your tasks: Take a look at your current pile of duties and tasks. How many of these will actually help you feel fulfilled? Are they all as pressing and urgent as you might think?  3. Focus on the outcome: Focus on results and not simply the action, you can accomplish more in less time. Instead of getting lost chasing the bottom of endless to-do lists, you’re moving one step closer to what it is you truly want.  4. Cut out distractions: You get a lot more done when you aren’t being pulled in a dozen directions. Silence your phone and/or put it somewhere it won’t bother you. Switch off your email notifications. Close your office door if you have one.  5. Don’t multitask: Multitasking doesn’t help you get more done in a quicker amount of time – in fact, it’s quite the opposite.  6. Delegate: Is there someone who could do this task better than you? We tend to want to do things ourselves to ensure they’re done right, but putting someone else in charge of certain tasks frees you up. *Write down your “musts” for this week *Chunk, or group items that share a common theme Well I hope that this has been useful, so do let me know, comment on my youtube channel and through Twitter. What I’d love to hear are any tips that you might have and are working for you when it comes to managing your time more effectively and efficiently.

Mindset Matters Show 74 with Samantha Dholakia- Executive Coach and NLP Practitioner
This week Zeenat is joined by guest Samantha Dholakia executive coach and NLP practitioner. A teacher for over 20 years, deputy head, and educational consultant, I now work with parents, educational settings and children to support sustained good mental health and make a change in the way we work with behaviour. Shifting our approaches from a shame, blame and praise system to one that is science-based and focuses on the balancing of emotion and guidance to develop inner motivation and confidence. MUMECHI is strongly rooted in Our Founder, Samantha Dholakia’s, own journey of discovery. Throughout her established career in Education, she had often found herself supporting parents in overcoming parenting challenges and finding that lifestyle balance at home. The well-being and development of both her staff and pupils had always been a priority, and as a lifelong learner, was an area she was excited to develop her own skills in. Since becoming a parent, she has carved a new path for herself; changing the way she shows up in the world, and how she delivers her services. She now truly understands how our stories can, and should, change when we become mothers - and how important every aspect of life is when finding fulfillment. This is why MUMECHI was born so that she could focus her experience on supporting mums. Find ut more and connect: Zeent shares her Affirmation: Empowering Question of the week!

Mindset Matters Show 71 with Matt Wright (vocalist & guitarist) & Jamie Reddington (producer)- Nomoon Project
Zeenat shares her Affirmation of the week: Empowering Question! Last week's Empowering Question was 💖''How often do you listen to your #instinct? What is your instinct telling you to do?💖 So this week continued on that idea, she asked... 💖'' What could stop you from following your instinct?💖 Now imagine, what could be if you allowed yourself to follow your instinct? 💖'' 💫Take a moment to Stop & Truly #Reflect Please share your thoughts in the comments... Of course, an emphasis was made on this week being Mental Health Awareness Week 9th-15th May with a focus on the theme 'Loneliness' Guests this week were Matt Wright (vocalist & guitarist) & Jamie Reddington (producer)- Nomoon Project. They're based in London, Jamie, East in the Hackney area and Matt South East in Peckham. Born out of the space to reflect and express during the 2020 lockdown, they experienced a boom of creativity, birthing the Nomoon project. We talk about the impact of mental health on musicians, whilst they also shared some great valuable insights and tips on how they manage their health through challenging times and when things get a little bit on top of them. The alt-electronic, London-based duo originally came together via different musical genres, backgrounds, and lifestyles, finding common ground through emotional experience. The nomoon project is focused on the strong emotions that emanate from the simple city life, the things that threaten to destabilise us for better or worse and encourage us to grow. “The music is what happens in the gaps, and aims at expressing the beauty and brokenness of what it is to be a human being.” Matt started out in folk and indie bands, whilst Jamie grew up producing hip-hop and electronic music. Inspired by the likes of Maribou State, Bonobo & Four Tet, this results in beat-driven emotional soundscapes. Both artists are inspired by novels and films that take focus on the complications, heartaches, traumas, and lessons that come with the want of living a ‘normal’ life, such as Normal People (Sally Rooney), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Life (Charlie Kaufman) and This is England (Shane Meadows). Within their creative community nomoon are trying to help normalise the conversation about the unique struggles of being a creative individual, primarily through the Anon series, which is currently a set of small soundbites, soundtracked by nomoon, from interviews had with people in their creative community. The music is a reflection of their own struggles to intertwine the demands of building a creative career and having a 'normal life'. With nomoon, Jamie and Matt hope to create a soundtrack for other people’s lives and experiences. They are providing catharsis and context to experiences, significantly more challenging moments, through self-expression and openness.

Guest Emma Barclay, a long-term lung cancer survivor, shares her incredible story and the mindset and resilience that she had in order to not let the Cancer beat her.  What an inspirational lady with such fire and determination!  Together, Nicky and Emma formed Everybreath a lung cancer support group for anyone affected by this disease. The group has gone from strength to strength over a very small period of time and taking into account the pandemic what we have achieved together is incredible. They are the only support group in London and the South East and we want to expand so that all patients with Lung Cancer can benefit from peer support. The great news is that they are not far from becoming a Registered Charity and will soon be spreading the support groups across the UK. Whatch this space! To find out more: Together, let's support and break down the negative stigmas around lung cancer... Know that you do not have to go through this alone, where it is you going through this awful disease or if you have a loved one going through this or has passed sadly. There are support groups like Everybreath here to hear your voice and listen.

Ryan'ss greatest accomplishment was bouncing back from zero brain activity after doctors planned to switch his life support machine off. Whilst in a coma he wasn’t conscious to decide whether to switch his life support machine off or not, and it was totally in someone else’s control. He has noticed that many people who are alive and well have already unconsciously pulled the plug on their own. Because of this, he has recently quit his one and the only unfulfilled day job of over 13 years to follow his purpose, mission, and vision. His duty is to use the knowledge he has gained from facing and overcoming the adversities in his life to inspire others to become the very best versions of themselves.

Mindset Matters Show 59 with Stefania Tinti Empowerment Coach
Due to server stormy weather, this show was completely pre-recorded on the day!  Guest feature on Mindset Matters was Stefania Tinti- Empowerment Coach. Stefania empowers men and women to transform their limits into resources so they can finally access the life they have always wanted. Becoming an Empowerment Coach became possible after she had navigated 13 years of therapy on herself, overcoming deep depression, Low Self-Esteem and Narcissistic Abuse. The real transformation was only possible when Stefania could embrace how anger, sadness, and eventually depression were all part of coping mechanisms that mainly came from having experienced Narcissistic Abuse as a child. Once Stefania could understand how these emotions contributed to her survival, to keep her safe and allow her to navigate through the trauma, the best way she could as a child, she could finally see them as resources. Resources that eventually lead her to express her voice, access her Authenticity, and finally found her true vocation, her life purpose as an Empowerment Coach.

Special guest this show Julia Paulette Hollenbery, Embodied Spirituality Teacher- Healing Alignment Transformaion. As a child Juila was connected to everything in a deeply feeling and sensual way. Life was alive and Julia was part of that. Her home was in the garden, she danced and changed the weather. No matter how the adults tried to tame her, no one convinced her otherworldly experience was not real. Over time, without words to articulate and people to listen, Julia felt existentially wrong, changed her wildness to fit-in… life felt hard and she felt broken… but didn’t lose contact with essential innocence, with ‘knowing without knowing’… Over 30 years Julia reclaimed herself, experiencing travel, therapeutic bodywork and spiritual work, feeling safe in the world and her body again.

Mindset Matters show 50 with Lauretta Wright & Michelle Simpson
Wow! Mindset Matters celebrates its 50th Show! 👊🏼🎉 Myself and co-host Kerry Madgwick were joined by 2 incredible guests- Michelle Simpson and Lauretta Wright Michelle Simpson, Sales & Marketing Consultant for The Chartwell Cancer Trust, an amazing local charity that supports both adults and children with cancer & leukaemia. Michelle tells us what amazing projects have been happening and her reason for why she does what she does. The Chartwell Cancer Trust have been supporting local cancer and leukaemia services to improve cancer care for both adults and children in the Bromley borough and surrounding areas. Through our fundraising, we provide a range of support services for capital projects, equipment, training, research and additional medical staff. Our current capital project is our Lily Pad Appeal, where we are fundraising towards the major redevelopment project at Croydon University Hospital. Two years ago our charity agreed to raise £750,000 to fund a state-of-the-art Oncology Ward within the Paediatric Village, to ensure that cancer treatment and care for young people in Croydon stays in the borough. To date (17/12/21/), they are very close to achieving that target, having already raised £660k, so not much more to get us over the line. lifeline Instagram:- chartwellcancertrust   &  thelilypadappeal Facebook:  @chartwellcancertrust    @chartwellchildren    @LilyPadCCT Twitter:  @ChartwellCancer   &   @CCTchildren Lauretta share her inspiring personal story when just 2 days after she launched her first local community magazine, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Determined that it wouldn’t affect her goals and aspirations, Lauretta worked throughout her 12-month treatment (even on her laptop during chemo sessions) and says that helping others was the catalyst to her success in being able to do this. Lauretta is a publisher at Life In… magazines with titles including Life In… Orpington and Life In…Bromley (launching early 2022). The community magazines celebrate local people, feature inspiring news and information, offer a ‘What’s On' section and encourage readers to support local businesses.

Mindset Matters Show 46 with Jenny Mason & Serena Sabala
Two fabulous guests this show with: Jenny Mason founder of Imajencoahing. After working in corporate change management for many years, Jenny finally managed to tap into her inner Houdini, break out of the chains that bound her, and swoop into the world of entrepreneurship as a transformation coach. Having found the key to being free to be her, she now helps others to develop and grow, going from survival to thriving! Jenny's story is about how she suppressed her feelings and her intuition by rationalising why they were incorrect. This meant that Jenny always chose her head over her heart. Listening to the external world and her own beliefs and values above her internal wisdom about what was right for me! This led to stress, unhappiness, and a lack of energy as she lived a life that was comfortable but captive and where her heart was closed most of the time. Jenny managed to gain awareness and break through the barriers which kept her captive, resulting in taking a leap of faith, giving up her job, and founding Imajen Coaching. For more information visit: Website LinkedIn Facebook And Serena Sabala Co-founder of whole Shift Wellness. Certified Plant-Based Nutrition Consultant, Yoga Teacher and Fitness Trainer who has studied the subject of nutrition for over ten years and has a unique, holistic approach to health and wellness. When Serena was only 8 years old her father, a very successful and busy entrepreneur, got really sick: unfortunately, he didn’t have the tools to take care of his own wellbeing and therefore crumbled under the pressure of owning a multi million euros business. This led to him losing everything he had worked so hard for, with huge consequences to him and the whole family. As a result of her childhood experiences, Serena has developed an interest in wellbeing practices which started at a very young age. Serena is also very passionate about bringing wellness to the workplace since many people spend most of their waking hours at work: she believes that “employees who are cared for, care more” and that companies who put the well-being of their employees at the forefront of what they do are more successful than average.

Mindset Matters Show 47 with Jason Murrell Business Owner
Thank you to Co-host Kerry Madgwick. Another great show. I always love having you in. This week's amazing and inspiring guest who has his heart on his sleeve was Jason Murrell – Founder and Director at JADE Window Cleaning & Support Services Ltd. Jason has been in the business of commercial window cleaning for 30 years. Jason worked for several large companies within the Industry including helping to set up and run the Window Cleaning Division of MITIE, first off doing the hands-on work, getting up in cradles and cleaning some of the largest buildings across London, then moved into Operations Management running a team of 40 operatives and a fleet of 20 vehicles. Jason always wanted to build his own business so, in 2014, with a friend, he started JADE WCSS Ltd. Now, the sole Director of this company. JADE has since gone on to be awarded some very prestigious and complex buildings including most recently Perigon Heights in Bromley which is the highest residential apartment block in the borough. They have also been awarded the SME Enterprise Award for Best Commercial Window Cleaning Company in the South East for 2 years running both 2020 and 21. And most recently we were awarded the Global Enterprise Award for best Commercial Exterior Cleaning Company 2021 Most of our work is still focused on commercial properties, office blocks, leisure centers, distribution centers, retail units, etc., although we do have some residential clients too. Jason loves the buzz of running his own business, of winning new clients, of keeping them happy, it is however extremely tough at times and very stressful. Jason has also been a big supporter of this show because he thinks mental health is such an important topic, that’s why he is sponsoring Mindset Matters again. His daughter was one of the first guests, so he guessed it was only a matter of time before he'd up here! Jason has had his own battles; He lost his mum and his sister just a few short years ago and within about a year of each other and that was tough. The pandemic obviously had a big impact on his business yet here they are, building back better as the Chancellor likes to say! A must listen to... What Jason has to share is so emotionally touching and will no doubt resonate with many out there, giving them hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Mindset Matters Show 45 with Tina Neve & Graeme Hoppitt
In this show, once again I had the pleasure of being joined by the delightful co-host Kerry Madgwick. What a great show with two very different guests: Tina Neve and Graeme Hoppitt. Tina Neve, Career and Development Expert. Tina has over 30 years of experience working within Executive Search and Human Resources. Tina is also a qualified Lecturer with experience delivering CIPD Courses and teaching young people aged 16+. As a Career Development Expert, her approach is open, engaging, holistic, empathic, and supportive. She provides a trusting space to focus, in a world full of time pressures and distractions. Tina helps clients reconnect with their true motivations and values, understanding what really makes them “tick”, as well as appreciating their full range of skills and capabilities. Tina supports individuals to flourish, enabling them to move forward in ways they cannot currently imagine. Throughout her career supporting individuals at times of transition or uncertainty, it is seldom the practicalities of the situation that are the issue. There is the surface level “what’s going on?” and then there is “what’s really going on?”. This is where feelings and emotions have a massive part to play. This impacts our interactions and relationships with others and their ability to progress and grow. On the show, Tina talks about her personal challenges and life and how her Mindset and Resilience were key to her moving forward and not letting life challenges set her back. To find out visit: Website Social Media Handles Graeme Hoppitt, Transformational Coach / RTT hypnotherapist. Finance Director for BMW’s flagship dealership Park Lane, Mayfair London where I stood up against a bullying regime that ultimately ended my 15 year BMW career. It was evident profits came before people. He was already a workaholic and fighting against the bullying regime physically and mentally exhausted him to the extent and went off sick for 7 months suffering from burnout. Within 3 months, he lost his job, left his wife of 21 years, and his mum died.  Graeme was sicker than he imagined at the time and lived a mediocre life for years falling into addiction. Graeme shares his personal story which has led him to do what he does now, becoming addiction-free naturally, escaping obsessive-compulsive thoughts and the power of the subconscious mind. The 3 subjects are intertwined and can be spoken of separately or collectively 1 - Addiction -  enabling addicts to break free of their addictions naturally and create extraordinary lives beyond addiction, same as I have done! 2 - Overthinking - escaping obsessive-compulsive thoughts. Understanding how overthinking shows up. Many people don't even realise they are overthinking. 3 - Power of the subconscious mind.

Mindset Matters Show 44 with Neil Scott
Thank you to Kerry Madgwick for co-hosting the show with me. It's always great to have you in the studio. In this show, I had the pleasure of Neil Scott founder and owner of Lift Each Other Gym (LEO), based in Orpington Kent. He came along to share his passion and talk about how physical fitness is only a small portion of greater physical success. Neils's ethos is Mindset and having the right Life Skills in place. Neil's goal for the studio is to improve your life so you can go on to help others. He wants to create a ripple effect that gets bigger and bigger until we lift the world! Neil looked at his own skill sets and life experiences. He states that ''I am not a great intellectual, nor physically a genetic buff. Maybe greatness is not out there for me, but I can sure as hell do my best. Whatever I achieve, if I can say that I strived with every part of my being to get there, then I can be proud. Undoubtedly, I’ll learn something in the process.'' Competitive sport has been a part of his life since he was three years old. Starting off in a swim team and progressing to football, he played seriously until the age of 22. At this point, Neil realised that it was his responsibility to maintain his physical shape. He was no longer a part of an organised club with scheduled training sessions, so he took ownership, made progress and people started to take notice. At every gym session, there was a new face wanting to know what he was doing and how they could improve too. At this point, Neil decided to share his personal programme. During the time, his rudimentary programme was in effect, some interesting key points began to emerge from participants' feedback. They noticed an undeniable positive shift in their mental health. They felt they made progress, they felt a spark of confidence. Neil wants to produce that spark in everyone, grab it and create a burning passion. ''I believe LEO can do this.''

Mindset Matters Show 42 with Keith Jeremiah & Alice Foster- Bromley Little Theatre
This show was jam-packed with lots to talk about around the mental health and wellbeing of people within the creative Arts industry- in particular theatre actors and actresses.  The Arts industry is one of the professions which lacks a lot of Mental Health and Wellbeing support and understanding. There is a huge lack of funds, and many small community theatres rely on the community for funding. This should not be the case.  Also discussed, how the Scottish Government are now looking at and putting proposed standards for self-harm support and other areas of mental health.  Acting has immense health benefits for all and needs to be recognised much more and fundamentally supported.  It was a pleasure speaking with Keith Jeremiah a retired structural engineer, who now devotes much of his time to Bromley Little Theatre of which he is Chair of the Trustees.  He is a great believer in the power of the Arts generally and theatre in particular to enhance the wellbeing of those who engage with them, whether as consumers or participants.  And, Alice Foster, an Operations Manager in the B2B Corporate Event sphere. But when she is not working here Alice is an actress and dedicates her passion to the Bromley Little Theatre.  Alice has been performing non-professionally since she was 16. Recently, she was in 84 Charing Cross Road (Megan/Maxine), Midsummer Nights Dream (Helena), Picnic at Hanging Rock (Harriet) and she stoops to Conquer (Kate). She will next be seen as Patricia Graham in Bromley Little Theatre's January 2022 show 'Flarepath' by Terrance Rattigan.

This week's show encompassed lots of great tips and strategies. Zeenat Noorani, radio host of this show Mindset Matters talked about the Benefits of listening to music & playing an instrument that can really support and help with mental health and wellbeing for all.  Zeenat then shares her insights into what Impostor Syndrome is, what the symptoms are and how one can begin to address this feeling and thought of not being good enough or worthy enough to achieve success and happiness... Here, you will hear from 3 amazing people that Zeenat interviewed at The Priory Live Music Festival 2021 that took place in Orpington: Bonez, a rap singer created his own path in the UK rap scene. He maintains quality rap flows whilst delivering powerful, innovative messages through his captivating stage presence. A sound that reflects the optimism you would expect from his talent is described as "Real Rap  With A Touch Of Bounce" which is attracting a You tube audience with 133K video views. Bonez’s career has sky-rocketed since the success of his debut EP "Still  Hungry" which led to his sold-out Headline Show at Cargo in Shoreditch,  London, and his sold-out EP launch party in Catch, Shoreditch, London. His music is regularly described as inspirational, in a time where the rap scene is polluted with violence and negativity. Bonez’s realness is a refreshing addition to the UK Rap field. Paul Dunton & his Orchestra presents a superb series of candlelit showcases of the local area's finest soloists and acoustic bands. With four acts on the bill at each show representing a multitude of musical styles and genres, audiences are treated to an exceptional  night of local music culture, songwriting, and musicianship.

Mindset Matters Show 39 with Kelly Turner
Meet Kelly Turner, Purpose & Conscious Coach who used to work in the NHS, but is now a Jay Shetty Life Coach. Kelly is passionate about the relationship we have with ourselves. She feels vulnerability gives a deeper connection with ourselves, allows space for self-compassion and to drop any masks of shame. Kelly used to work in London and did well within her career, but she felt stressed and anxious. When she left her career, it was a journey of relief and feeling like a failure. However, the wisdom in her body made her press the brakes and go inward. Through her own journey of self-connection it has led Kelly to a new level of acceptance, love, fulfillment, and purpose.

Here, Kathy shares her experience of having had situational depression. She started doing more work on herself to love herself and understand herself better - now that she is living her life as she wants to (after some work, therapy, diagnosis of CPTSD).
