Why are my periods irregular, why are they heavy, why do I get cramps, should I be on the pill and how will that impact my health, why do I feel low around the time of my period, why do I break out or get bloated? These are just a few of the common question we have about our periods, a topic that we can shy away from and that can often have quite a lot of stigma and embarrassment surrounding it, yet there is so much we can learn about our bodies, our health and our mental wellbeing from understanding our cycle, the fluctuations of our hormones and how we feel across the month. The episode breaks down the most common questions, outlines what’s happening at each point of the month and allows us to get to know ourselves so much better.

We all want to be healthier and happier but how can we actually make it happen? Today we’re looking at simple, practical day-to-day practices to help create that internal transformation, focusing on yoga and meditation. From their ancient roots and philosophies to the idea of non-attachment, the power of the breath and the ability to see ourselves as enough just as we are, as well our favourite books, concepts, affirmations and intentions.

Confused about health and wellness? Each week we interview an expert to bring a little inspiration to your life from gut health to mental health and anxiety, how to make sustainable changes, finding happiness, what happens to our brains when we exercise, skincare 101, dealing with stress, veganism and the environment and so much more.

Should we count calories? Are all calories created equal? Will an avocado and a chocolate bar have the same impact if they have the same number of calories? What about fat, and carbs, sugar and salt? Should we be guided by traffic light systems on packaging? Nutrition is incredibly confusing and in this episode we’re breaking down the myths and confusion that surround calories, fat, carbohydrates, sugar, salt, the glycaemic index, cholesterol and trends like ketogenic and low carb diets with nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert.
What is the human cost of fashion, how do our choices impact on others, is feminism at odds with fast fashion and how do you define sustainable fashion? Livia Firth, the founder of the green carpet challenge is talking us through her journey with bringing glamorous, sustainable fashion to the Oscars, visiting garment factories in Bangladesh, what to look for when we shop and so much more as she lifts the lid on the industry, showing us the responsibility that we have as citizens of the world and the way in which we wear the stories of those that make our clothes.
Accepting our bodies as they are, cultivating a positive relationship with food and stepping out of diet culture. We talk to nutritionist and intuitive eating expert Pandora Paloma about how to make this happen, how to reclaim our thought patterns around food and how to stop defining ourselves by the way we look.
Loss and grief are two of the rawest, most profound emotions that strip you back to the very core of what it is to be human, and today we look at how you turn that darkness into a world of heightened gratitude, bringing more meaning to everything that has come before. After losing their Mum, Matt and his sister, Jess, talk the depths of loneliness, supporting those around you, accepting the painful reality of where you are and the desperate need for a change in the way we address such a shared experience, as well as the absolutely indispensable power of presence, gratitude and resilience throughout.
In this powerful final episode of season two, Ella and Matt talk to Nicole, founder of Self Care Co, about her powerful journey of self-discovery from crippling anxiety, panic attacks and moments of such darkness that there seemed to be no way forward, to a hobby that created a sense of stability and then became a thriving new business. We’re blown away by the power of internal transformation seen here as we learn the value of celebrating kindness and unconditional love for those around us, and how one kind act from a stranger saved Nicole’s life and instigated her Be Kind movement.
Ella and Matt take a deep dive into the world of the brain with Dr Mithu Storoni looking at how our brains record events as we perceive them, not as they actually happen, how our emotional and rational sides of the brain control the way we see the world and how we can therefore train ourselves to shift from a negative to a positive bias. Stress can both help and harm us and Mithu helps us understand the ways in which we can use this to achieve peak performance and improve our mental and physical health, as well as how small tweaks in our lifestyles can make us feel completely different, why challenge and reward cycles can be game changing, and how our perceptions of colour, sounds, taste and time alter under stress.

I wouldn't agree that eating edame is a good thing to ear as it us often GMO. And soya is proven to be a hormone disruptor so best avoided. in fact, anything processed should be avoided.

Annie Corder-Mills Ps I stopped listening within a few minutes, due to the very questionable recommendations.

Ella, thank you for a brilliant episode! So many tips and tricks to try. Maybe in one of your future episodes it would be possible to cover a topic of skin and the effects of hair removal methods (waxing and, especially, laser hair removal as it sometimes might trigger the skin to produce more moles). Another interesting one is the relationship between the skin and UV lamps used for shellac manicure and pedicure. These UV lamps are used to solidify paint on the nails but are they safe for skin? Can they contribute to the risk of getting a skin cancer? Thank you!

"A balanced Vegan diet" is an Oxymoron. Humans did not evolve as herbivores. We are the Apex predator on the Planet. We are not designed to eat plants.
