Episode 12: We all know about toxic positivity, but what about toxic gratitude?

In this week’s episode, I explore some of my feelings toward the idea of gratitude and how I feel it can be used detrimentally toward ourselves.

Gratitude journalling, and using gratitude as a means of becoming more aware of what you have rather than what you lack, can be a wonderful tool for transforming one’s mindset. However, in the wrong context, can it become a toxic trait that serves to undermine our own feelings and desires? Let’s catch up and talk about it…

Episode 16: You Need to Take a Break – Making Space for Rest in the Hustle Culture She Uncensored

This episode is about reconnecting with yourself by not depriving yourself of what you need. Our default mode as humans is to deny ourselves of that which we need, or to view ours needs as luxuries with which we occasionally treat ourselves with after we feel we have 'earned' it. The reality is, our needs are relevant and we deserve so much of what we deny ourselves in order to live a fulfilling life. We also talk about remembering that we are part of a wider, natural system which works through rhythms and cycles which allow us to move through life much easier. Our constant state of go, go, go is stopping us from accessing the flow, flow, flow of life. In order to reconnect, we need to disconnect and build rest into our lives so that we can keep moving forward happy and healthy.

Episode 11: FOMO, the art of not comparing your life to everyone else’s, & other things I learnt in my 20s…

I’m back!

Launching this new series of the SheUncensored Podcast, I wanted to begin with this episode as I’ve finally hit the inevitable 3-0. But, before I get stuck into a new decade, I wanted to take some time to reflect on what I learnt throughout my Twenties. There was a lot to think about but had I been told some of these things ten years ago, I may not have been so hard on myself…

Well, maybe.

Anyway, I’m here to pass on the things that have helped me over the past ten years in hopes that they may be able to help you, too. We discuss on the idea of your twenties being the golden decade where you get everything done, living life a little more slowly, and how it’s absolutely, positively, ultimately acceptable if you do not have your shit together…Me, neither.
