How mindful are you? The Voice of Calm Podcast explores mindfulness, happiness and that oh so elusive, calm. Liz Horsman takes us through the best of the week on Voice of Calm plus interviews, reviews, recommendations and loads more. Created by psychotherapist, songwriter and teetotaller, Liz Horsman, Voice of Calm promotes mindfulness, inspiration and shared insight. It is a place to stay for a while, look around and visit regularly to refuel your spirit.We all have a Voice of Calm: an inner wisdom that knows the answers. Mindfulness is about practicing awareness of our thoughts, being mindful of our habits and training that inner calm. If you are unfamiliar with mindfulness then we’re here to help you.As a society we are so programmed to over-indulge while ignoring basic self-care. Our lives can become physically and mentally toxic and we risk crashing. Mindfulness is not an escape from reality, in fact, it is an embrace. Practicing mindfulness in our everyday lives can make us more present then ever, ready to be our best selves.Mindfulness is an ongoing journey. It is not something that once completed never has to be reviewed. We are constantly learning and growing. It seems like a devestating waste for one person’s self discovery to be hidden away and not shared. Voice of Calm is a place to share, learn, explain, explore and enlighten.Although true happiness lies within us, not outside of us, there are huge rewards in hearing other people’s stories. We hope you will find mindfulness tools, light, joy and learning here: something you can take away and use to nourish your own Voice of Calm.

Julia Rose has been a yoga teacher for 16 years. She's seen a dramatic rise in Instagramers claiming to be yogis. They've got the handstands, the back bends and an endorsement deal with Lulu Lemon but are they doing yoga or gymnastics? Julia explains why it's important to leave our egos out of yoga and remember that at the heart of our practice should be a connection with inner peace and calm. She calls it a 'moving meditation' and a progression, rather than a performance.

Matt Brown and Liz Horsman discuss social media stress and over thinking. Also in this episode Love Island, meditation, creativity and how we tell us ourselves a more positive life story.When you are creative it can be really hard to switch your mind off. But mindfulness can help to channel those thoughts in the right direction, rather than switching off your great ideas. Matt and Liz discuss how they strike the balance between being 'full' of ideas while having space for every day life.Self criticism also seems to go hand in hand with creativity. If you have any sort of social media then you'll know how damaging the 'like' count can be. How do you emphasise all the good stuff you do rather then feel like an underachiever? Mindfulness and positive self-talk!
