    Ep 42: 8 signs you are a perfectionist

    Ep 42: 8 signs you are a perfectionist

    Are you struggling with Perfectionism? In this episode, I talk through 8 signs to be aware of and examples of how they are affecting your life.
    Brene Brown, who is a shame researcher, describes perfectionism as "the belief that if you look perfect and do everything perfectly, you can minimize or avoid the pain of blame, judgment, and shame."
    If you struggle with people-pleasing and overthinking then this episode is a must! Understanding that perfectionism is simply a set of beliefs and doesn't define who you are completely changed my life!
    Also, listen to Episode 41: Are you in a Perfectionist Mindset? This will help you understand the Growth Vs Fixed Mindset.
    Let me know which of the 8 signs affects you the most and what area of your life is it most prominent. Send me a DM @insideouthealthwellness.

    Ep 41: What it means to be in a Perfectionist Mindset

    Ep 41: What it means to be in a Perfectionist Mindset

    This is a topic very close to my heart! I struggled with this mindset for over 10 years and never really understood what it meant. It has only been in the last few years that I have understood the Growth Vs Fixed Mindset.
    In this episode, I talk about how the perfectionist mindset keeps you stuck. If you believe your talents and abilities are fixed then this episode is a must! I talk about how it can affect every area of your life - including relationships, exercise, career, and running a business.
    If you would like to learn more about the Growth Vs Fixed Mindset I highly recommend reading a book call Mindset by Dr. Carol Dweck. 
    If you need help with getting out of the fixed mindset then contact me via email info@insideouthealthwellness.com.au and I can show you how your life can dramatically improve!
    I hope you enjoy this episode :)

    Ep 40: BYOBF is celebrating by going back to where it all began

    Ep 40: BYOBF is celebrating by going back to where it all began

    In this very special episode, I am learning to celebrate the small things and I am encouraging you to do the same!
    BYOBF is having a makeover! In this episode I talk about why waiting for the perfect time to start something will always keep you stuck. I share my journey on starting this podcast and why I started before I was ready.
    I also recap on the 1st episode where I talk about Neuro -Linguistic Programming (NLP) and how I use these concepts to help my clients get out of their own way.
    NLP is like a user's manual for the brain and understanding this is like learning how to become fluent in the language of your mind so that your subconscious mind will finally understand what you actually want out of life.
    I hope you enjoy this episode :)
    I would love to hear from you on what you found most helpful, send me a DM @insideouthealthwellness

    Ep 39: Are you feeling guilty for how you feel?

    We have all been there! Feeling guilty for resting, eating something we shouldn't, missing a gym session, leaving the kids.. the list is endless!
    The definition of guilty is culpable of or responsible for specified wrongdoing. No wonder we feel bad about ourselves! Feeling guilty is not a nice feeling, so why do we do it to ourselves?
    Tune in to this episode where I talk about how to feel your feelings properly, without the guilt!
    How would your life improve if you no longer felt guilty for the everyday things you do?
    I hope you enjoy this episode :)

    3 reasons why you have been struggling to change or remove habits permanently

    3 reasons why you have been struggling to change or remove habits permanently

    There is so much more t changing a habit than waking on one day and deciding that you have had enough. It's certainly a great starting point though :)
    One of the biggest reasons why we struggle to make changes is we are doing it backward. We think that simply deciding to take action that it's going to work. Then we get disappointed in ourselves for not maintaining.
    I talk about the 3 requisites for change that you must do if you want to create or remove a habit permanently.
    The first one is the most important one! Tune in to hear why. Have you also been making this mistake?
    Episodes I recommend listening to if you haven't already:
    - Episode 16: What do you need to let go of?
    - Episode 19: Are your emotions controlling you?
    - Episode 24: Empowering Vs Disempowering Beliefs
    - Episode 26: Are you in a game of tug of war with your mind?
    I have 5 remaining places for my coaching program in 2020. If you would like to be one of them please send me an email info@insideouthealthwellness.com.auor a DM @insideouthealthwellness

    Ep 37: Why you must listen to your body!

    Welcome to another episode of the BYOBF podcast:) Today I am sharing a recent experience I had where I didn't listen to my body.
    Two concepts I talk about are:
    1. Overindulging and not being consciously aware.
    2. Feeling guilt/shame and beating yourself up over what you should be doing.
    Listen to the following episodes to help with this content:
    Episode 30: How to get out of a downward spiral of negative emotions. Episode 33: The mindset behind why you emotionally eat If you feel like your body is trying to tell you something but instead, you are beating yourself up then make sure you tune into this episode!
    Send me a DM @insideouthealthwellness, I would love to hear from you!

Become your own best friend

Incredibly helpful with enjoying a much more relaxed and productive life. Very helpful for self esteem and eliminating over eating and over drinking of coffee. Kiara is gifted with how she uses her training and I highly recommend all her podcasts in this series. 🧡👍💪😃

Thank you for sharing!

Thank you for sharing your wisdom, knowledge and tips for a wholesome, wholehearted life. I was listening to both Becoming your own best friend and Defusing Negative thoughts and I will certainly try out the practice of ‘noticing my thoughts’! I have been living with the ‘thought’ or guilt that I am not a good enough daughter because I have left behind my parents in Spore. But it is a thought, and it is not me, and doesn’t define me!

Content most of us can relate to!

Informative & content we can all relate to at different times in our life. I suffered a heart attack a few months ago, the outcome of all tests basically boiled down to stress. What an awakening it was however, to listen to Kiara’s podcasts is the real medicine needed to get me through this time. I’m sure she is speaking about me in many scenarios, but like me, we all put ourselves through stress we could avoid! Listen and implement a few of Kiara’s strategies & you too will find life easier on yourself!😀
