    In this final episode for 2023 we are sharing our Best & Worst for the year that was, and also three things we would recommend (Christy may have snuck in five - LOL!). This conversation is filled with books, podcasts and magical potions (if local honey counts) to help you smash the rest of 2023 out of the park and welcome in 2024 with open arms!

    We also share what we can’t wait to do over the Christmas break and take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for listening to Spreading the Good Stuff podcast this year.

    Episode 75 - Resilience in Troubling Times

    Episode 75 - Resilience in Troubling Times

    In this powerful episode we discuss what resilience means to us, starting with a broad definition thanks to the incomparable Brene Brown and unpack how we harness it for ourselves, our families and the wider community.

    We open our minds to what resilience is and Leonie opens her heart in the most extraordinary way to share her resilience and grief journey. We thank her for her honesty and for letting her guard down to help others who might be feeling trapped in their grief or emotion. Bravo Lee and thank you for spreading the good stuff - even when it's hard!

    Episode 74 - Catching up on Alone Time, Social Media Detox & Perimenopause

    Episode 74 - Catching up on Alone Time, Social Media Detox & Perimenopause

    In this episode we are back after a delightful month off to chat about everything from alone time, social media detoxing and the perils of peri-menopause.

    Christy chats about her 'alone' retreat, Leonie discusses the benefits and challenges of a longterm break from all social media and Katrina shares experiences of 'change', growth and unravelling through significant chapters in her life, including peri-menopause. We discuss hormone support and how important to get a second opinion on what you are experiencing and to seek out a women's health specialist, which is not always easy. We only briefly touch on this as it's a subject we plan to dedicate a whole episode to in the coming months - can't wait for this!

    Thanks again for joining us on Spreading the Good Stuff.

    Episode 73 - The Art of Saying No

    Episode 73 - The Art of Saying No

    In episode 73 we briefly recap our last episode, where discussed chasing your dreams and we share the importance of support and the perils of not having it. Are you good at asking for help in your daily life? And, do you feel like a burden if you're receiving help from family or friends. We were reminded by the lovely saying, thanks to Katrina, that 'you can only give as much as you are prepared to receive' - food for thought!

    We also discuss the art of saying saying no to things, which is another area of challenge for many. It's a tricky situation for many when we feel obligated to do the things we need to do for family, children, community, etc, and one worth unpacking.

    Thanks again for joining us on Spreading the Good Stuff.

    Episode 72 - Chasing Your Dreams

    Episode 72 - Chasing Your Dreams

    We're back spreading the good stuff with a conversation about 'chasing your dreams' and of course, we can't not talk about the amazing Matildas!

    Right off the bat, it was hard to contain how totally pumped we were, along with the rest of the country, about the incredible journey that our national women's soccer team has been on during the FIFA Womens World Cup. We recorded this episode the morning after our heartbreaking loss to England (who were unfortunately the better team on the night) and it was great to reflect on the far-reaching impact the Matilda's journey has had, and will continue to have, into the future. Who said you can't commercialise women's sport?

    This conversation also covers a lovely listener request - thank you to Jamie - about how to chase your dreams while caring for little people. We each share how we managed (and continue to manage) to keep our dreams alive while in the trenches with young children or tending to teenagers. Being kind to yourself, not comparing yourself to others, being patient and staying focussed on not letting go of your dreams by just doing little things along the way, were all tips we shared.

    Thanks again for joining us on Spreading the Good Stuff.

Revitalise your soul

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a while & I look forward to every release. One of my favourite things to do on the weekend is pop some earphones in & listen to an episode of Spreading the Good Stuff and I’m never disappointed. From setting goals, health & fitness, grief and coping with a busy lifestyle, these chats really talk to me and are sooooo relatable. I particularly loved a chat with Erin Barnes- and found it so inspiring with real tasks/actions I could implement immediately. Keep up the great work girls!
