This week we are having a break from the norm whilst I discuss whether or not men should automatically assume the role as the head of the household. Why is there an inherent need to want to lead? Is this concept outdated now? The foreword of this episode is dedicated to Kobe Bryant, his daughter and all the others that lost their lives tragically this weekend. I share some tips on how to keep yourself well if you have been impacted by this news and also give details on the grief cycle. Did you enjoy this episode? Would you like me to take up more of your listening this week?

2020 Goal Affirmations

2020 Goal Affirmations

2020-01-0100:10:52

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! WELCOME TO 2020!!! Heres a little gift from me to you that will get your 2020 started off the right way! There are four affirmations on this track: - I AM determined to achieve great things in 2020! - This is MY YEAR of dreams COMING TRUE - All of my goals and plans for this year are achievable - I AM worthy and deserving of all the GOOD things that happen to me Repeat the affirmations with me or you can just listen. Repetition Is The Key To Mastery: In order to achieve the things we want in life, we have to first believe that we can. This is no easy feat considering that the subconscious mind is ruled by habit and the conscious mind acts accordingly. If you have ever wondered why you keep falling into negative thought patterns and as a result fail to meet/achieve your goals, you can blame your subconscious mind for that! Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to overcome self-sabotaging, negative thoughts and promote self belief. Instructions: * Find some time when you are unlikely to be distracted. * Take some deep breath's during the intro * As you listen, visualise all the things you want to achieve in 2020. * Ideally, listen with headphones! The optimum time to listen to these affirmations are just before you goto sleep when your brain is in theta mode. This is when your brain is most impressionable. Aim to listen to this 3 times a day (on your commute to or from work, lunchtime, in-between meetings or before bed. You choose!) Enjoy! Please share on your social media platforms if you really found these affirmations helpful. The hashtag for the podcast is #lovelaidbare.

Join me tonight for a solo podcast where I will be discussing how I unknowingly may have fit perfectly into the category of a ‘pick me’ type of woman.⁣ ⁣ A ‘pick me’ is someone who seeks validation, acceptance or approval from a certain group of people or opposite sex. ⁣ ⁣ Whilst this term isn't often used generically, one can easily find themselves seeking acceptance and approval from different types of people. It could be peers, employer or your parents.⁣ ⁣ Have a listen & drop your thoughts below! ⁣
This week I am joined by Psychotherapist Celestina, founder of Floating Counselling.
