    A Gen X, Y & Z have a chat, with Mike Abecina and Steph Razey

    Generations.

    Always such a fun topic for us to discuss.

    Why?

    Because everyone belongs to one.

    There are various generations intermingling in our workplaces and communities, so understanding the unique perspectives of each one is vital.

    It was George Orwell who said, ‘Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it.’

    In today’s episode, our Gen Y host, Ashley fell, sits down with a Gen Z, Steph Razey, and a Gen X, Mike Abecina, to discuss their generational differences.

    The future of faith with Geoff Brailey

    The future of faith with Geoff Brailey

    There are many factors that contribute to our overall health and wellbeing. This can include physical exercise, sleep, sense of satisfaction, sense of meaning and purpose, and how one feels their life is going. Holistically it is often a blend of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects.

    In a a study of employed Australians that McCrindle conducted with Reventure, we found that the majority of employed persons (42%) defined wellbeing as, ‘When I have found balance across my physical, mental, social and spiritual life’.

    It’s also pretty evident to us that people’s personal wellbeing has taken a bit of a hit in recent years.

    More than one in six Australians say they have never felt part of a flourishing community, and around the same number report feeling lonely “often”.

    More than half of Australian teen and twentysomethings say they are living with a long-term mental health condition such as anxiety or depression, and less than half of this age group report strong satisfaction in their life in measures such as a sense of purpose, contentment, personal growth and spiritual wellbeing.

    These are some staggering statistics.

    In today’s episode, our host, Ashley Fell sits down with social researcher, Geoff Brailey, to discuss some new research insights about the future of faith.

Really enjoying this podcast, the topics are insightful and relatable to future challenges we face as communities and in workplaces.
