Wearable Devices why, when and what to look out for
Wearable Devices why, when and what to look out for? Peta and I talk through the use of wearable devices.
We take a little journey through the development of them and how we have both used them. We also talk about the top things to think about if you are thinking about buying one and how they might help you either keep on track or keep motivated.
Listen in to understand a little more about them and also which one you should ask for, for your next gift.
Have you lost your Mojo?
Have you lost your Mojo? Well, we all do sometimes even me. Peta from Strong Healthy Women talks with me today about how we might get back the feeling of excitement.
I challenge Peta to talk me through how to get it back. We also talk about why it goes away and how it is all a part of the ebb and flow of life.
When things don’t go to plan
When things don’t go to plan, how do you keep healthy and well? We all have those times when the world just falls to pieces. Our partners get really sick or one of your family members needs more support than normal or even when you move house and your routine is disrupted.
We talk about the little things you can do to have some semblance of control over your diet and activity. How to build in some activity and learn to listen to your body. We also touch on what to do when the world has overwhelmed you and some of the things you can do to reconnect and also help someone else. What is your community and how do you define it?
What’s not to love about stretching?
Peta from Strong Healthy Women and I chat about stretching. Why you should do it? What exactly it does for your body and how to incorporate it into your daily life. Stretching is so important as you get older because it stimulates collagen as well as getting rid of the by-products of exercise and helping your blood get around to where it is most needed. Of course we have a bit of a laugh and confess that we didn’t start until we were both quite old. Listen in to understand how this is one of the habits you should be making for yourself.
Your Brain, Menopause, Hormones
Your brain, menopause, hormones and how it all affects your eating with Justine Cecile. The one thing I love about my guest and women I meet is their amazing back stories and how they end up helping other women. Justine has a fascinating back story, but most of all she has one of the most unique approaches to wholistic care during menopause for her clients. She is a functional, diagnostic nutrition practitioner, which means a science and functional based medicine approach to healthcare.
We spend time talking about your brain, and how the way we manage our brains can affect our transition through this fabulous part of our life.
A life long learner Justine talks about her journey with fibromyalgia and her mission in life to help women be healthier versions of themselves.
XXX Menopause and Tantric Sex
XXX Menopause and Tantric Sex yes we are going into a very deep conversation about all things sexual with the very knowledgeable Janet McGeever. Janet has recently co-authored a book with Diana Richardson on “Tantric Sex and Menopause, Practices for Spiritual and sexual renewal.
Phew.. well it is a bit of a hot topic especially if you are menopausal. Janet gives us some amazing information about why many women might not be enjoying sex with their partner or worse still just giving up on sex and intimacy.
Janet talks about love and connection and how we all need to slow down and start experiencing the joy of relationship. We also cover off why we might just be missing out on some good things for the rest of our bodies as a result.
I learned a lot and I am sure you will too.
