    There is one thing most people neglect to do when bringing their year to a close…don’t make this same mistake. During this time of year, we are surrounded by people reflecting on the year that was - what they achieved, the moments they are grateful for, the things that went wrong, what they would have done differently, and the list goes on. Creating time to process the past 12 months is important as it allows a much needed opportunity for celebration and learning. However, the next step is crucial and most people over look it. In order to truly let go of all that happened this year and make room for new visions, dreams and goals for next year, you need to ritualise its closure. If you don’t, then you could continue to carry unnecessary baggage with you into the future preventing you from being fully present, optimistic and driven. During this solo round, I’ll share with you some strategies for bringing this year to complete close to help you launch into 2019.

    When your relationships are strong and healthy, you are also stronger and healthier. This is one area of my life I am constantly working on. We tend to spend so much time giving our attention and energy to everything else because we are too busy, stressed, overwhelmed or distracted, that our relationships with friends and family are often overlooked. However, it is in these times that we need our relationships and sense of connectedness even more. With Christmas and New Years upon us, it is even more important that we invest in our connectedness given the spike in people struggling with mental health during this time of year. For this mash up episode, we will focus on the habits I learned and the inspiration I gained from some of most popular guests such as Dr John Barletta, Mat Rogers, Dr Gary Chapman and Ryan Hassan.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if you could remove old, unhelpful information from your brain? Well, you can because your brain has it’s very own delete button. For example, have you ever had that feeling after a big day that your brain is full and you can’t handle any more information. Well, that’s probably because your brain is actually full. And, using your delete button will help you retain and strengthen the important information while cleaning out what ever is unhelpful. The big question then is, how do you make sure your brain declutters itself thoroughly and properly. After all, you want to make sure it gets rid of the information you don’t need while keeping and strengthening every thing that is still important. In this solo round, I’ll share with you the two simple things you can do to effectively use your delete button.

    How is your breathing going today? Have you taken a moment or two to notice or to control it?

New researching using recordings made directly from within the brain of people undergoing neurosurgery have shown that breathing can in fact change the brain. In other words, changing the way you breath, such as breathing slower and paying closer attention to your breath, engages different parts of the brain. In doing so, it can change the state of your brain and physiology to help you do your life even better.

She shares the steps you can take to show someone you care, that they are not alone and that help is available. We also talk about how to notice if someone needs you to reach out to them, and even what to do when you ask someone if they are OK and they don’t want to talk about it. This is a very important episode and provides you with the strategies you need to be there for your loved ones, friends and even strangers when they need you the most.
